If I answer one more phrase , that will be the farthest my brain has ever been... [In reply to] Can't Post

9. River Jogging -- wait, that's not quite right...
10.Onion Ring! -- the one to drool over all!
11. Five chapped-toes (chapters) and/or Three Paces (pages) plus the Big Appendix (how you ever found that big appendix picture I will never know...brilliant!)
12. Robber Person -- What Tolkien first called Bilbo, until he realized Burglar sounded better...
13. Noah one rock the boat! -- from the Barrels scene, right?

I got 1, 12 and 13 actually -- Really, I did! Now, I'll just go read someone else's answers to make sure! Smile

But of course! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's from one of the songs - and the one I like least, so I usually pass over it when reading the book! Laugh

6. Clap! Snap! the black crack!
Grip, grab! Pinch, nab!
And down down to Goblin-town
You go, my lad!

I'm curious: what is that "crack" photo?

that photo... [In reply to] Can't Post

the crack photo's from Doctor Who series 7 (?) of the 2000s+ series'. 2010 I think..but anyway it's like the crack of time or something like that... never really understood it (it was to do with one of the main characters having all memory of her boyfriend wiped out..)
but yeah, there you go (poorly explained) Wink

aw... put a spoiler in your subject head! [In reply to] Can't Post

even if the spoiler wasn't Hobbit related. I'm glad I played before reading, anyhow. I got a kick out of recognizing it and I felt like DanielLB used it as an easter egg of sorts.

All taken care of. [In reply to] Can't Post

And thank you for the explanation, Xanaseb! Not having watched much Dr. Who, I knew only that it was a "crack" of some kind. Lovely, though, isn't it? I thought at first it was the sun shining through clouds.

Oh dear, I can hardly believe [In reply to] Can't Post

I said bee-urn and didn't see that it was Beorn Pirate
Of course I knew it was Beorn that it was referring to, but I didn't see his name in it...


..The land of long-forgotten name:
......no man may ever anchor near;
..No steering star his hope may aim,
......for nether Night its marches drear,
..And waters wide no sail may tame,
......with shores encircled dark and sheer.

..O! Haven where my heart would be!
......the waves beat upon thy bar
..For ever echo endlessly,
......when longing leads thy thought afar
