It has already been established that I am basically a hobbit.
Today is my birthday, so I decided I should celebrate my birthday like one, too. Which unfortunately does not include a trip to the Shire, but will involve lots of po-ta-toes and music and laughter and going barefoot.
As hobbit tradition goes, the birthday celebrator does the gift-giving. Since you, friends and blog readers, mostly live in all corners of Not-Middle-Earth, I decided to virtually “give” you some amusing or useful things on the Internet.
Feel free to “open” whichever character’s “gift” most corresponds to your personality. Or just whichever one seems interesting.
Sauron: Because he is evil…but could use some strategy pointers.
Gollum: Because he is really just misunderstood.
Arwen: Because she is a princess and pretty, but not super practical.
Gandalf: Because he is smarter than you in basically every area and manages to pull it off without you actually hating him.
Legolas: Because he reminds me of somewhat-melancholy music, particularly the cello.
Saruman: Because he is consistent, smart, and kind of a jerk sometimes.
Pippin: Because he thinks you need people of intelligence on this mission…quest…thing.
Eowyn: Because she is an interesting female character struggling with strict social conventions.
Enjoy, and feel free to comment with your own suggestions if you like. In the meantime, I’m going on an adventure!
