Tolkien Blog Party 2017 ~ Tag

Hamlette over at The Edge of the Precipice is once again hosting A Tolkien Blog Party!!  And I almost forgot about it!  My life's been kinda crazy.  Anyway, here a is lovely tag she put together.

1. How long have you been a Tolkien fan?
  I've been a Tolkien fan for 4 years now.  Gosh, that doesn't seem right!
  2. Has your love of Middle-earth affected your life?
  Yes, in too many ways to count!!

  3. If you had to take the One Ring to Mordor, which character would you choose for your sole companion?
  Seriously?  Ummm, I think Sam.  Maybe Merry.
  4. Which is scarier, Shelob or the Balrog?
  Well I personally find Shelob scarier.  It's a giant spider!!
  5. Which two towers do you think Tolkien was referring to in the title The Two Towers?  (i.e. Orthanc, Barad-dûr, Cirith Ungol, Minas Morgul, or Minas Tirith)
  I believe he was referring to Orthanc and Cirith Ungol.
  6. Whose wardrobe would you like to have?
  Eowyn's.  She wears a lot of my favorite colors, plus I really like the style.  Although, Elrond's wardrobe would be cool too, especially his armor in The Hobbit.  All gold and glimmering!

This dress.  Gimme.

And this one, so simple but sturdy.

Simple, but elegant.  Totally love the belt.


  7. What do you think an Ent Draught would taste like?
  Well, it says that it has a very earthy flavor, so maybe something like Celestial Seasonings Tension Tamer tea, or maybe nettles tea.  (I hate the stuff) 
  8. Where in Middle-earth would you like to live?
  Rohan.  Horses, wide open plains, and wind!!

  9. Do you have any Tolkien-related opinions that surprise other people?
  I don't think so...but I might.  I really don't know.
  10. List up to ten of your favorite lines/quotations from the books or movies.
  Now, these aren't my top ten favorite quotes.

  And an extra meme that is so true.



  1. Gosh, I really relate to that last meme. I would give quite a bit to be able to read/watch LotR for the first time again! Thanks for all the great answers!

  2. Great quotation selections! I tell my kids the line about not all tears being evil when they are sad over something legitimately sad.

    And you're right, Elrond has some awesome clothes! Especially that armor.

    Thanks for joining the party!

  3. Aaaahhh, great answers! YESSS, Eowyn's wardrobe is SOOO beautiful. "Gimme," indeed. <3 I think my favorite is her green or white gown, but I also love the one she wears at that part when Aragorn leaves. I've realized that I really, really love all the Rohan people in the movies!

    Again, great answers! And those quotes. <3 That Hobbit crossover collage with Sam's speech is great. <3 And I love Sam's Cirith Ungol song, too!!

    Wow, I haven't been over here in forever. I'm sorry for that! Hope I can catch up soon!

  4. The second dress, and the last dress are my favorites of Eowyn's! They would look so good on you!

    This is why you and M are so alike. You both love the wind.

    All the quotes are great choices!!!

    Nice answers!! :)
