Hobbit Day: September 22

Greetings, all!

Today is Bilbo's and Frodo's birthday, September the 22nd!




Kendra Lynne and I are going to interview each other about favorite LOTR characters, scenes, quotes, and themes; as well as share some LOTR trivia, gifs, and movie scenes!
Enjoy!!! XD

(Ahem; we apologize for any typos; it was difficult to write this post with two people and a bad internet connection on Mem's side. :-Z) 

A Little About Us:

I'm a super geeky Christian homeschooled teen. My MBTI personality type is INTJ; and I'm very unemotional and reserved.  My interests include reading, writing, movie making, listening to music, playing musical instruments, martial arts, photography, fandoms, and cake decorating. 
I've loved LOTR and The Hobbit ever since I first picked up The Hobbit at age 7 and read that classic line: "In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit."
I also have two other blogs:
https://inkandpagereviews.wordpress.com/ : a book review website.
and https://inkandpageblogstories.wordpress.com/ : a blog story blog.
Hope to see you there sometime!!!

I am a quirky, unpredictable, unorganized, romantic, Christian, homeschooled Lord of the Rings fan. My personality type is INFP, and the first things you'll notice about me are that, 1; I am quiet, 2; I talk a lot when you get me going about one of the things I am most passionate about, e.g.; books, writing, Lord of the Rings, tobymac and Matthew West music, horses, and blogging. I first read The Lord of the Rings because Middle Earth Musician urged me to when I was ten, but after I had read The Hobbit and had begun The Fellowship of the Ring, I decided that the books were downright scary. But finally, after spending another year listening to Mem talk about Elves, Wizards, and these little creatures called Hobbits; I decided to give the books another shot at age 12. And surprise, surprise; I loved them and have never looked back.

Now that you know who we are, shall we begin? ;-D


Mem- So, Kendra; who is your favorite LoTR or Hobbit character? Mine are Tauriel and Gandalf.


Kendra- Oh dear... that is such a tough question... Ok, my favorite LoTR character is Samwise Gamgee (and... and... oh I wish I could list more than one! XP), and my favorite Hobbit character is hands down Kili. Although... oh dear. There I go again wanting to list a bunch. *slaps forehead and groans*

Kendra- My dear Mem; if you had to choose, who would you rather have show up at your door... one of the Uruk-Hai or Wormtongue? *gives evil laugh*
                                                         
Mem- Geez, that's hard! Um...probably one of the Uruk-Hai. They're not so...annoying...as Wormtongue. (And I could blast a Uruk-Hai with my mighty wizardry! [Okay, maybe it's not so mighty...;-D])

Mem- Okie-day, here's a question for you. Which one would you want to go on an adventure with; Merry or Pippin?

Merry and Pippin | Ranking The (B)romances In "The Lord Of The Rings" From Worst To Best

Kendra- (I would have chosen the Orc as well; I wouldn't feel bad about killing him but I couldn't bring myself to kill Wormtongue) Merry or Pippin?! Man, they would both be, well... a little annoying to go on an adventure with. I love Pippin, but I'll have to say Merry. He's got more sense.

Mem- That makes sense... but I would pick Pippin. ;-P

Kendra-Your turn, Mem! True or false: Martin Freeman was asked once to do his best impression of Gollum.

Mem- True???

Kendra- Yep! And I have proof: https://youtu.be/rxhK_xX_D08

Mem- Okay, here's your next question. What is your favorite LoTR or Hobbit song? Mine is I See Fire by Ed Sheeran. 


Kendra- I love In Dreams and May It Be... but I think my favorite is The Misty Mountains.



Kendra- Now, Mem, your next question: Which dwarf said; "You've done much fighting?" and if you had to be either a Wizard or an Elf, which would you choose?

Mem- Hm...I knew the answer to that but I forgot it. I think it's either Thorin or Bofur. WHY?!?! I like both Wizards and Elves!!! Um............................I think............................a Wizard. :-Z 

Mem- Alrighty Kendra; which cast member from LoTR actually met J.R.R Tolkien? (You probably know this one...)

Kendra- (Thorin! That's correct! And I knew it would be difficult for you to choose between wizards and elves, so I asked you to. XD) I actually don't know the answer to that; surprise surprise. Um... sorry; I don't know. Will you tell me?!

Mem- It was Christopher Lee; he plays Saruman. ;-)
 


Kendra-  THOUGHT SO!!!! Annnnd for your next question, my dear Mem... um... ooh! Who is your least favorite dwarf and favorite Orc (yes, I have a favorite Orc (the one who says "Look's like Shelob's been having a bit of fun!" and has a limp)- but what I mean by favorite is, e.g., the Orc that annoys you the least, that you find funny, who has a well-known quote, etc.)?

Mem- My least favorite dwarf is Dori. He annoys me. My favorite orc is Gothmog. He's the white orc general in RoTK. I like him mostly because he's the butt of quite a few jokes in my family. :-D


Mem- Here's your last question, Kendra!!! Which LoTR or Hobbit character would you dress up as?

Kendra- Another tough question (but those are usually the best ;). This might seem kind of weird/interesting, but I'd love to dress up as a feminine version of Kili. I think it would be so cool. But it would also be fun to dress up as Galadriel. :) 

Kendra- Ok, last one for you, Mem. Choose which characters from LotR you would want as your grandfather and uncle and aunt, and which characters from The Hobbit you would want as your two brothers, cousin, and father. XD

Mem- (That would be cool!) Oh wow, good question. Hm, I would want Gandalf as my grandfather, definitely; Faramir and Eowyn as my uncle and aunt; Kili and Fili as my brothers, Legolas as my cousin, and Bard as my father. (You didn't say a friend, but I would have Tauriel as my friend. :-D) 

Mem- Thanks for doing this with me, Kendra! It was so much fun!!! *hugs*

I hope you enjoyed reading our questions and answers!!! Talk to us in the comments! Did you do anything for Tolkien day? Do you have a favorite LoTR character? Who's your least favorite dwarf? What's your favorite LoTR or Hobbit song? 

Namarie, and many happy returns, Bilbo and Frodo!!!

  4. Sorry for the somewhat late comment, this post was so good though! I loved the banter between you two.

    Besides my participation in Hamlette's blog party, I haven't been doing much LOTR stuff this week. Been too busy.

  5. I agree with Mem; I'd probably Choose Pippin, As I think he was my favourite out of the two.. I'm not sure, It's been a while since I watched the movies..

    Also, Funnily enough, I have the same personality type as my first favourite LotR character: Arwen. She was (and still sort of is) my favourite character! :D

    1. You should totally watch them again!!! Pippin is great. XD
      That's awesome!!! Arwen is pretty cool. :-D

  6. I would want Bard as my father, too! And Kili and Fili as my brothers also. Actually the only difference in my answer to that question from yours, is that I would want Frodo to be my cousin. He's technically in The Hobbit because he's at the beginning of the first movie. :)
