I have a confession to make - I'm rather scared about the Hobbit movies... Can't Post

Not for the reasons you might guess. I'm not worried about Smaug's voice, or who will play Bilbo, or if the elves should be tra-la-la-la-y, or if the trolls should have a talking wallet... No, dear reader, my fear is for my bank account...

I remember the heady days of the LotR movies, when it seemed like every week - nay, every DAY - there was some new piece of merchandise I wanted - nay, NEEDED - to buy. The 'free stuff' was even worse - the cold sweats of panic I vividly recall, as I realised, 'Wal-mart has ten new badges for its employees to wear. What must I do to make sure I get them ALL?'

Yes, my name is greendragon and I'm a collectorholic. Blush My apartment is already bursting at the seams; how could it possibly hold all that Hobbit stuff which I just KNOW is waiting to come my way? My bank account is flinching and squirming at the thought even as I write this! Laugh Anyone else out there know that feeling? The 'must - have - the preciousssss...' type feeling that washes over you every time a new line (no pun intended!) of merchandise is launched? The panicky 'I have to have this to show my true fandom!' feeling you sometimes get, or the 'my collection/life just won't be complete without that' dread?

I know I'm not alone in this insanity! You know you're out there! To those narfs (*snert*) who manage to enjoy the movies without the collecting which goes with it, be happy you don't suffer from this sickness! Be glad - to paraphrase Shakespeare - that you are 'not without fandom, but without the illness should attend it...' Sly

There's only one solution - I'll just have to start saving now, so I can afford to splurge when the movies come out. And, of course, so I can afford to move to a bigger place... Crazy Wink
