The 14 Most Annoying Things About The Hobbit: An Unexpected JourneyLindy West12/14/12 11:30amFiled to: MovieshobbitsLord Of The RingsLotrTolkienTopFb3622EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkKindly avoid getting anything twisted—I fucking love The Hobbit. When I was a little girl, my dad (WHO DIED, okay, so this sentimentality is HARDCORE) read The Hobbit and/or Lord of the Rings and/or the Chronz of Narnia out loud to me every night before bed. I remember him nodding off in the chair, his pace and pitch winding down like he was running out of batteries—Bifur, Bofur, Bommmmbuuurrrrrrrrrrrrr. It was the best. So at this point, no matter the context, if someone even mentions riding a barrel down the Celduin to Lake-town at the gates of Erebor, The Lonely Mountain (even if they're just talking about spring break!), I collapse in a heap of sniffles.
