Since I am the last person on the planet who has not read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy I have decided to bow to pressure & submit. Today I marched myself down to the library & checked The Fellowship of the Ring out. It looks oddly similar to books I used to read in junior high that had the funny cover & the hard back. I have read a couple of pages & found it to be very entertaining. I think that I could have been a Hobbit. I see a whole lot of similarities (except for the foot thing–no hair there.)
- Anything that a Hobbit has no immediate use for, but is unwilling to throw away is called a mathom. Their dwellings were apt to become rather crowded with mathoms. They re-gift.
- They eat & drink often & heartily. Six meals a day!
- They love parties & simple jests….(I love a good pun!)
Kind of eerie isn't it?
