Well... [In reply to] Can't Post

I've had a separate savings account and piggy bank in action for over 4 years just waiting for these films to be spawned.... and that's been since before it was 2 films let-alone 3!! *twitch*

Now, that sounds like it would have a lot of money in it, but there's enough for film 1 viewings, some books, a dvd or 2, some toys, etc. I won't be able to go as nuts on the extras like I did for LotR... no travelling to conventions/Oscar Parties, a few Sideshow pieces, etc.... but I will enjoy going to the films, fersher! I'm in contact with my local theatre managers trying to work out a multi-viewing ticket price ;)

I'm working with the theatre about putting together a LotR marathon in December and a Hobbit line party. I've done a marathon with them before, but never a line party... so that's a bit intimidating ;)

I'll be buying my first batch of tickets as soon as they go on sale! The first day, I'll see it at least twice. I prefer to go to these alone or with people who are geeks; but mostly alone so I can really be absorbed into it.

Making a costume for Halloween/Opening Night for The Hobbit. If I don't get it done in time for the first film, I'll either wear my gramma gammer costume or my gramma Wraith/Nazgul costume... it's very comfy :) Believe me, nothing is weirder than a 5' 3" 60 yo gramma Black Rider ;) As long as I keep my hood on, it's just a mini-Black running around.

I'm taking at least one day off from work to get to the theatre all I want! I'll go see them in 3D a few times, but most of my transports to Middle-earth will be the old-fashioned, conventional format. I don't want to be distracted AT ALL!

Practice patience and tolerance. The worse part of my theatre viewings is when the people around me eat and rattle their packages. Drives me NUTS! AND... AND... those people who stand up when the credits start and just stand there... putting on their coats... waiting to get into the steps/isles.... while I'm still sitting there obviously watching the credits. You'd be amazed how many people do the same sort of thing when the movie is starting!!! They show up just when it's beginning and stand there taking off their coats, discussing who will sit where, rattle their freakin' food.... ARGH!!! SIT DOWN! So have a care, folks, when you're in and out of the movies. Don't be a tourist and dawdle in front of those sitting and enjoying their experience. *puff, pant* Not much makes me angry... but this stuff really does! This and oblivious drivers ;) And empty ice cream containers. *sniffle* So sad....

That said, however... I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE to go to the first viewings when the place is packed to the gills with people who love these films! The energy and excitement is palpable! You can swim in the good vibes and anticipation! Excited, geeky noises coming from viewers (woots, gasps, laughter, tears, applause) doesn't bother me a bit... cuz usually I'm right in there with them... if not the instigator ;)

Hobbity stuff I've already got:
Sideshow/Weta: Gandalf sitting and smoking pipe and exclusive Bag End environ with rooms. I consider both of these Hobbit-esque pieces since they came out well after LotR items.
Hobbit Hero Pack Bilbo, Thorin, Dwalin, Kili, Fili 3.75" action figures
Hobbit 6" Bilbo
Hobbit 6" Gandalf
and the 3.75" Legolas/Tauriel set
Hobbit tie-in book (with Bilbo on cover)
Hobbit tie-in book (Bilbo or Frodo in tattered cloak)
Hobbit Annual
2013 Tolkien calendar by Howe/Lee
pewter Bilbo/Gollum Riddles in the Dark
Empire magazines (and any mags with Hobbity news)
Comic-con invisible Bilbo
Comic-con acorn pin
Hobbit t-shirt (Bilbo in door)
I know I'm forgetting stuff... but there you are :)

Compiling The Hobbit Geeky Observation List. That means I'll take a tablet with me every time I go to write down observation. A HEADS-UP TO EVERYONE! I'm in the process THIS WEEK of asking for observations from all of you based on what we've already seen to put onto the list. There's going to be a list for each film, so be sure to note which film the observation is for. If you're not sure what I'm talking about, check out my link below to see the LotR Observations lists. They're in the process of being updated/edited... so a few changes are being made. Please don't give the observations here... just watch for my post in a few days :)

This is all just so surreal. We've been waiting for these films for so many years and through so many threats and changes... I'm just so happy that they have finally been born and that Peter Jackson and his entire filmic-family are the ones to do it. I can't think of one single thing that has not been done or included that I have remorse for. I'm already so territorial anticipating these that it's getting hard to focus. So many years of hoping. This is all such a dream come true!!!

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.
