That awkward moment when…

over half the people you know think you’re a crazy nerdy weirdo that gets way too excited about stuff. (mostly actors you fall in love with and obsess over)

Except you remember that John Green said:

“I mean Hank, the movie was great, but the thirty minutes before the movie started was what I love about being a nerd. Because nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff. We don’t have to be like, ‘Oh yeah that purse is okay’ or like, ‘Yeah, I like that band’s early stuff.’ Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself-love it. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they are saying is, ‘You like stuff’, which is just not a good insult at all, like ‘You are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness”

AMEN John Green.  Thank you for creating a community of people in which I fit in.

Favorite Horse

Shadowfax is absolutely beautiful, BUT I have to say Brego.

I love the story of how Aragorn set Brego free, and when Aragorn washed up on the river bank Brego came back.  I love it because it’s a great story and it feels like they’re made for each other-like they understand and respect one another. I think the chemistry between them is beautiful.

Apparently REAL chemistry because I read somewhere that Viggo Mortensen bought the 2 horses he worked with in the film. =)

Favorite Man

Admittedly Aragorn again, but since I’m going to have a chance to talk about why I love him later…..I’ll speak of my second favorite man Faramir.

Faramir goes against the odds when he lets Frodo and Sam go instead of taking the ring.  I admire him for this because he stood up for what he believed was right even in the face of losing whatever feeble relationship he had left with his father.

I also just feel for the guy because his father prefers Boromir so much that he basically doesn’t care about Faramir at all.  I think that’s pretty awful.

Also, he’s gorgeous.

Favorite Member of the Fellowship


If I’m being honest, Aragorn is going to be the answer to so many of these “who is your favorite___ questions” so other than Aragorn: maybe Pippin.  I really do love them all, and each person brings something different to the group.  It’s so unfair to make me choose.

Best use of magic or supernatural gifts

I’m not sure if this really counts…..but….

The part where Arwen is riding with Frodo and being chased by the Nazgul and the river turns into galloping horses and literally swallows them up and wipes them out? Awesome.  “If you want him…COME AND CLAIM HIM.”

Probably the Green Dragon song. It’s just a really fun moment.
