My very first SAST quiz answer reply post EVAH! [In reply to] Can't Post

1. Dusting the mantel....uh, and counting the dishware. And Thorin.

2. Dwalin.

3. Hoot once like a barn owl, twice like a screech owl. Or, become attuned with Eywa and abandon the ways of the Sky People.

4. William, Bert, Tom. But in the Muppets version, all three would be named Sweetums.

5. Burrahobbit. Or two Yoots. Two wha...? What's a yoot?

Tore myself away from cervesa on the beach for this [In reply to] Can't Post

1. What is Bilbo doing when Gandalf walks in to Bag End, the morning after the Unexpected Party? (Be as specific as possible.)
Eating breakfast -- I'm sure it included crispy bacon and mushrooms.

2. Which dwarf gives Bilbo his spare hood and cloak, when Bilbo finds himself joining the company without any travelling gear?
Dwalin - he always had extras

3. What does Thorin tell Bilbo to do if he can’t come back, when Thorin sends him off to investigate the mysterious light in the woods?
Now here I get confused between the book and movie -- hoot twice like a barn owl and once like a screech owl? Or maybe it was the other way around

4. What are the names of the three trolls?
Bill, Bert and Tom

5. What do the trolls hear as Bilbo’s answer to their question, “What are yer?”
Burrahobbit -- or kookaburra

Roast Mutton [In reply to] Can't Post

1. What is Bilbo doing when Gandalf walks in to Bag End, the morning after the Unexpected Party? (Be as specific as possible.)
Eating second breakfast. YAY Second breakfast! What was he eating or about to eat that the dwarves didn’t get to?

2. Which dwarf gives Bilbo his spare hood and cloak, when Bilbo finds himself joining the company without any travelling gear?
Hmmm…Not Thorin, Gloin, Kili or Fili… ahhh I don’t know! Can I be like Gollum and get 3 guesses for this riddle? Bofur, Dwalin, or Dori.
One of the Dwarves’ dark green cloak- too big for Bilbo, but useful as a blanket too. I like to think he keeps the cloak, but it was probably lost along the way.

3. What does Thorin tell Bilbo to do if he can’t come back, when Thorin sends him off to investigate the mysterious light in the woods?
hoot once like a barn owl and twice like a screech owl…or the reverse of that

FYI- I love saying the word “hoot”

4. What are the names of the three trolls?
Tom, Dick, and Harry….NO… Bert, Ernie, Cookie Monster….NO…
Tom, William, Bert
Thank you for not asking which troll did or said something :p

5. What do the trolls hear as Bilbo’s answer to their question, “What are yer?”
A burrahobbit :)

Woo-hoo! [In reply to] Can't Post

I just re-read The Hobbit a few weeks ago, when I got the 75th Anniversary edition. But like many books that I have read countless times, I find myself skimming in spots, since I think I know the story so well. But maybe not as well as I think!

I think the last time I did this was on the old message boards. Can't remember being able to use emoticons Wink

1. What is Bilbo doing when Gandalf walks in to Bag End, the morning after the Unexpected Party? (Be as specific as possible.)

He's just sitting down to second breakfast, but he hasn't dusted the mantel!


2. Which dwarf gives Bilbo his spare hood and cloak, when Bilbo finds himself joining the company without any travelling gear?

Ah, I think it's Dori, but it might be Balin. Unfortunately, not Thorin.Cool


3. What does Thorin tell Bilbo to do if he can’t come back, when Thorin sends him off to investigate the mysterious light in the woods?

Hoot once like a barn owl, then twice like a screech owl. Or maybe the other way - but a barn owl and a screech owl were definitely involved.


4. What are the names of the three trolls?

Bert, William and Tom. For decades, I thought it was one troll with three heads, because Tolkien mentions multi-headed trolls. It wasn't until we discussed The Hobbit in the Reading Room that I realized there were three distinct trolls.


5. What do the trolls hear as Bilbo’s answer to their question, “What are yer?”

A burrahobbit - one of my favorite words.

Awesome :)

There it is: dwarves are not heroes, but calculating folk with a great idea of the value of money; some are tricky and treacherous and pretty bad lots; some are not, but are decent enough people like Thorin and Company, if you don't expect too much.

Actually, [In reply to] Can't Post

regarding your #2: I'd recommend going and taking a look through Chapter 1 of LOTR. Bilbo *does* keep the cloak and hood, and they are one of his most treasured possessions, apparently. I love that detail!

If there's one thing I can't ignore, it's quizzes. [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks for doing those!

1. What is Bilbo doing when Gandalf walks in to Bag End, the morning after the Unexpected Party? (Be as specific as possible.)
He's a hobbit, isn't he? Must be eating.

To be specific - it's his second breakfast, or whatever he calls it.

2. Which dwarf gives Bilbo his spare hood and cloak, when Bilbo finds himself joining the company without any travelling gear?

Book-Dwalin.

(movie-Dwalin's cloak and hood would be far to large)

3. What does Thorin tell Bilbo to do if he can’t come back, when Thorin sends him off to investigate the mysterious light in the woods?
Imaitate owls - I think a barn-owl twice, and a screech-owl once .

The trouble began when the burglar didn't give a hoot about orders, but went after some private gain.


4. What are the names of the three trolls?
One was William Huggins. He was nicknamed Bill, after the pony.
The second was Bertnot son of Berthelm. His friends called him just Bert. Unfotrtunately, he got caught out of cover by unfair means - and never came home.
I've always suspected Tomasin was a female (you know, females do troll as proficiently as males). I wanted to check this UUT by confirming my impression that Tom was the only one who knew about cooking - but never got around to it.

5. What do the trolls hear as Bilbo’s answer to their question, “What are yer?”
Bill and Tom heard "a burr" and then "a hobbit". Bilbo felt like a burr, and looked like a hobbit, so they thought he belonged to an unkown (in the gastronomic sense) spieces, which like wolfhounds and catfish, was named him a "burr-a-hobbit".

Bertnot, just like an American volunteer in Spain at the same time, heard a far-of donnish bray, declaiming in a late Tudorian accent:

Stretches fingers [In reply to] Can't Post

here we go:
1. Updating his Facebook account "Visitors gone! House is clean again! All is quiet again. No adventure in sight.".
2. Bilbo refused politely, hood and cloak are so last era. He only wears hoodies nowadays and wouldn't be caught death in a hood and cloak, just the thought *shudders*.
3. Change his Facebook status into "It is complicated"
4. Me, me and me (they had problem figured out who was who, because when you asked, who is Bill, somebody always called "Me", so to keep things easier, they are all Me now)
5. Huh, what, who, me? (hence, the trolls thought he was a Troll too, since he was named Me as well).

serious answers these are [In reply to] Can't Post

1. What is Bilbo doing when Gandalf walks in to Bag End, the morning after the Unexpected Party? (Be as specific as possible.)
He had just finished fixing the plumbing in his bathroom, and was having a second breakfast.

2. Which dwarf gives Bilbo his spare hood and cloak, when Bilbo finds himself joining the company without any travelling gear?
This is a trick question. Thorin gives him his ONLY hood and cloak, and henceforth passes the rest of the adventure bare-chested.

3. What does Thorin tell Bilbo to do if he can’t come back, when Thorin sends him off to investigate the mysterious light in the woods?
Make owl noises. Bilbo tried to mention that he can't do owl noises, I think. Also not to get his hood and cloak dirty, please.

4. What are the names of the three trolls?
Tomas, Albert, William (Charles had decided to stay behind, claiming he was suffering from a stomach bug from eating a squirrel that turned out to be infested with parasites. In reality he took advantage of the situation and made a move on Betty, Albert's wife. Albeit, unsuccessfully).

5. What do the trolls hear as Bilbo’s answer to their question, “What are yer?”
Another trick question. It is never specified what the trolls actually hear, only what Bilbo says. They might have heard imitated owl screeching from the distance. Or complaints that it is a rather cold night for walking around bare-chested. Or they do hear Bilbo saying something about burglars and hobbits that to them sounds like burrahobbits, as they aren't familiar with either. Can't be sure.

And... we're off!! [In reply to] Can't Post

1. What is Bilbo doing when Gandalf walks in to Bag End, the morning after the Unexpected Party? (Be as specific as possible.)
After clearing up the mess left behind, he's just sitting down for a well-earned meal. I think its breakfast #5!
2. Which dwarf gives Bilbo his spare hood and cloak, when Bilbo finds himself joining the company without any travelling gear?
Dwalin. I've often wondered what that cloak smelled like and how long it had been stuffed in the bag... against his pony... probably not seeing light or air for months. "Oh. Gee. Thanks Dwalin!"
3. What does Thorin tell Bilbo to do if he can’t come back, when Thorin sends him off to investigate the mysterious light in the woods?
Hoot like a barn owl and a brown owl (well-honoured in Peter's flick). But Bilbo's a bit freaked out cuz he doesn't know how to hoot! "What's a hoot, precious? eh? What's a hoot?"
4. What are the names of the three trolls?
I know this!! I dated Tom, but steered clear of William and Bert. Chronic flatulance, don'tchaknow.
5. What do the trolls hear as Bilbo’s answer to their question, “What are yer?”
No owl-noises, I'm afraid. Just the burra-hobbit shivering and dangling.

THANKS RO!! It's so great to have you back and keeping us on our fuzzy little feet :D

Mediocrity Bench, here I come! [In reply to] Can't Post

Scooch over, people!

1. What is Bilbo doing?
Hmm. When all else fails, just say, "Thorin!" Well, I'd love to, but TORn is supposed to be a family-friendly place. But maybe he was doing Thorin's hair. We could hijack the SAST quiz with another examination of Thorin's hair, which I'm all for. Of course, we'll need a picture to make it a proper hijacking.


2. Which dwarf gives Bilbo his spare hood and cloak?
Thorin. Which explains why he's without one here.

3. What does Thorin tell Bilbo to do if he can’t come back, when Thorin sends him off to investigate the mysterious light in the woods?
Something about hooting like an owl, but he describes it in such dramatic fashion that Bilbo immediately forgets.

4. What are the names of the three trolls?
Thorin, Smokin', Shield

5. What do the trolls hear as Bilbo’s answer to their question, “What are yer?”
Yes, Thorin really is that hot!

Chapter 2: Breakfast at Sir Denny's [In reply to] Can't Post

1)eating his second breakfast. He had to clean up the dwarves' mess first, so he was very hungry. If I remember correctly, he had ordered the Hobbit Slam with Pumpkin Patch pancakes ("Hold the whipped topping, please. Mustn't overdo."); seed cake French toast ("Cream cheese topping, if you'd be so kind."); Shire sausage (Three, please, and be sure they're nicely browned, tah."), a pot of tea; and Bilbo's Berry Smoothie for dessert, just to get more food groups in. He'd only managed to get through the pancakes and sausage when Gandalf came in for some Radagast red velvet pancake puppies, did his booming scary voice, and chased Bilbo out the door!

2)Dwalin. He had decided at that point to shave his head, so he wasn't too fussed about getting his hair wet.

3)"Hoot once like a barn owl and twice like a screech owl"....or was it "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee?"

4)William, Bert and Ernie, er, Tom.

5)"A bur...a burr..." which is all he managed to get out before the slugs began pouring out of his mouth. Oops! wrong story?Blush

Ro said that we should simply say "Thorin" when we didn't know the answer, so I was just following the rules. I deny all knowledge of possible innuendos or hidden meanings that are not family friendly. Yep. Exactly the same situation as when Tolkien said King Arthur was "booty seeking" or had Sam always sayingt "Master Frodo". Squeaky clean we are, the Professor and I!*
