Back in January and February, I reread The Lord of the Rings, and I kept discovering fabulous quotes by or about the wonderful Samwise Gamgee which made me like him even more. If you've read the books or seen the movies, you'll already know that Sam is very important to the great quest and, basically, Frodo… Continue reading Even MORE reasons to like Samwise Gamgee
Exactly one year ago, I started this blog! This month is also the anniversary of getting my job at the public library where I work and of getting officially accepted into graduate school. Oh, what changes have happened since starting this blog! I can hardly believe I've been coming up with posts for a year. When… Continue reading One Year Anniversary!
Yesterday while attending the Medieval Fair in Norman, Oklahoma, I probably had more fun than a normal grown-up should have. For one thing, I got to ride a horse. This might surprise some, but I've lived in Oklahoma my entire life and have only ridden a horse twice (yesterday included). My excitement could not be… Continue reading My Nerdy Artifacts
Happy late Valentine's Day! I was planning to post this yesterday, but the day ended without me realizing it. My day was pretty uneventful. After working all day, I became preoccupied with rearranging my bedroom. After some great finds from Hobby Lobby, I was ready to redecorate my walls (which are now filled with dozens of… Continue reading A Nerdy Valentine
So, this is the month of the wondrous St. Valentine, who--although he has a holiday dedicated to him--has no reliable history anywhere available on the Internet (that I can locate). I had these big plans to quickly look up the history of Valentine's Day and to share my discoveries with you all, but my plans… Continue reading For the Love of Valentine’s Day
I can hardly believe it's been over two weeks since my last blog post, and that I haven't even logged into my WordPress account during those two weeks. It's sad, really. I blame it on school and the horrible paper which is due tonight but which I turned in yesterday (praise the Lord!). I've thought… Continue reading Reading, Re-Reading, and a bit of Narnia
Tomorrow is Halloween! That means there is still time for one more Halloween post. 🙂 Today I'm discussing the top ten characters I would want to dress up as for Halloween. This idea actually came from The Broke and the Bookish as part of the Top Ten Tuesdays. I know it's not Tuesday, but I just loved… Continue reading Top Ten Book Character Costumes
Good morning, all! It's so crazy to be making a post this early in the day. Usually, I post late at night when there's actually time to sit down and write. But today is a special occasion because...today's HOBBIT DAY! Just in case you're wondering, I did not make this up. It's actually a thing. Just google… Continue reading Happy Hobbit Day!
Enjoy The Lord of the Rings books and movies much? Yeah, me too. A lot. I also enjoy some of the Lord of the Rings parodies that people post on YouTube. I have seen plenty of them over the years and have enjoyed some of them so much that I want to share. So today's your lucky day! Included… Continue reading The Ultimate LORD OF THE RINGS Parody Collection
So, here it goes everyone. After these five months of blogging, I just thought I should let you know something important about myself. You might have been able to tell from my previous posts, but here it is straight out: I'm a big, giant NERD! Okay, there. I said it, and there's no taking it… Continue reading My NERD-alicious Bucket List
