Fun Day Sunday: Happy Easter Hobbit THAUJ Character Hunt, March 31, 2013 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #388)

Dear Friends,

If you have ever been to an extended family holiday gathering full of memorable characters, do any of them remind you of some of the characters from The Hobbit:  An Unexpected Journey?em0113p000_COV3.pdf

Thorin Oakenshield–Always late, but he still expects you to feed him.  Broods a lot, but looks so darn sexy doing it that the teenage non-blood relation nieces drool over him.  Either that, or they want to borrow his fur coat.  But he is above such tawdry displays of lust–unless there is gold involved, 24 carat.  But you are on a budget, so he satisfies himself with the veggie tray carrots.

Hobbit–This is your host/hostess who:  Insists you arrive by 2pm, but won’t feed you until 3pm.  Changes what food you are contributing to the meal the night before–after you have purchased it.  Monitors every morsel that you eat because they are on a special diet. Won’t let you help with the dishes because they have a certain way of loading their dishwasher.  Actually, that is a good thing.  And, disdainfully refuses your courteous gesture of bringing them a potted plant or other hostess gift because–well, they are just ungracious.

Other assorted Dwarves–Such picky eaters and quirky characters who:  Doesn’t like green food. Wonders where the meat is.  Gorges himself on the food and then breaks your favorite dining chair.  Can’t hear a word you say even if his hearing aid is turned up–because the battery is dead.  Wants to serve every one tea or booze–but there is only one roll of toilet paper left in the whole house.  Throws your good china around like they are unbreakable Corelle Ware.  Has more hair extensions than a runway model.  Speaks in untelligible gibberish that only your toddler understands.  Is overly concerned with how sharp the knives are–so you only give him spoons.  His beard is so long it drifts into the gravy boat as he passes it to you.  Wears a Pippi Longstocking like Nordic hat that he ordered online from LL Tolkbean.  Or, he wants to play darts since your mom won’t let him shoot his bow and arrows in the house, etc.

Elves–First of all, they are in the ironed straight hair brigade.  Jennifer Aniston and Barbara Streisand have nothing on them.  These Elvetives also won’t help clean up after the meal for fear of breaking their manicured nails.  And the one with the spikey crown tattoo–commemorating him being Prom King in high school–drives the biggest hog you ever saw.  Some say that he has an over inflated opinion of himself–and they want to take him down.  You are rooting for that one.

Wizards–Every family should have this tag team duo of these aging boy wonders.   One is still a wiz/whiz at fixing electrical short circuits with your oven at the last minute so that you can continue making dinner for the family’s holiday feast.  But you are not quite sure that his methods are up to safety code regulations.  The other guy?  Well, charitably, he is a kindly old fellow rather enamored of his birds–that your cats want to have for a snack.  The cats think that the bird feeder is for them–kindly baiting the birds to come in to land, then the cats pounce.

Now that we have established our set of Easter Holiday THAUJ characters, see if you can find them all in the attached graphic below that contains various Dwarves, Hobbit, Wizards, and Elves.  See how many characters you can spot.

Have a great day!  I’m heading off to our family’s potluck with my green bean casserole and plump dinner rolls in hand–with chocolate bunnies for my teenage nieces and nephews, and no hostess gift.  *wink*

Blessings and Cheers!   Grati ;->

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11

    Grati Happy Easter! I have really enjoyed your post today. I would like to say that a dwarf or 2 or all 13 would fit right in at my house for a holiday. A bigger table and more dishes would be needed but other wise . I would have to make sure that my oldest BIL would not sit next to them, as they might think that he is one of them, the beard and all. He loves to complain about something at lest once, he is hard of hearing and can be grumpy. We will have to make sure that he gets to see The Hobbit when we get it on blue-ray (waiting till October).


    • Giggles Katie70!
      Thanks for your nice note! Families are amusing at times. Ha! So funny about your BIL! Dare I ask if your BIL has a beard? Ha!
      Cheers! Grati ;->


      • katie70 says:

        Yes he has a beard and some wild curly hair to go with it. He says the wildest things, but can be a great teddy bear if he wants too. He would make some girl a great husband if he learned to tell his mom to butt out of his life. But at 46 and the way my MIL is I really don’t think so. But saying that I married the best out of the three brothers. You could tell yesterday that he still would like to have children, I think even more now that the middle brother is a grandpa as of last December and his oldest nephew is a dad.


        • Giggles Katie70,
          Your BIL sounds more like John Standring–“big teddy bear”. And people love JS! I’m guessing that there are plenty of ladies out there for him were he to make himself presentable (if need be), etc. Life is too short not to seek out what makes us happy. So I hope that your BIL finds his happiness–with or without his Mom being on board.

          Afterall, there are such things as moving vans that can take you to another state to live, such that Mama’s influence might not be so keenly felt with a little distance.
          Cheers! Grati ;->

          P.S. Remember that movie, “Only the Lonely” (1991) with John Candy? His Mom guilted him into staying with her and doing her bidding until he got fed up with it and decided to live his own life. And the mother eventually came around to her son’s new independence. I’m just saying.

            My BIL go and works up in Alaska every summer, but seems to come back each Fall. It might have to do to the fact that he owns his house and land, he will not sell either it was part of land given to him by his dad. John Standing is a close in some ways the way he is. Even the curly shaggy hair other than BIL is going bald. I don’t remember the movie “The Lonely Guy”.


          • Oops! I was off on the title. The film was “Only the Lonely” (1991):


            P.S I will fix the film title in my comments above as well. Ha!
