If Bilbo would give you a gift....

If Bilbo could give you a gift, like he did at his birthday party, what do you think he would give you and why? What kind of note would he write you?

Here's what I think he would give me:

A Day planner, because I'm always forgetting to do things!

(I think his note to me would go something like this)

To Amy Michelle A.K.A. Larien Telemnar- For your personal use. Please do not forget to write in it.

I like this idea for a thread. Good job, Larien.

I think Bilbo would probably give me some food or some books. Most likely the food. "To Kitanna, here's some cheese for you." Mmm Hobbit cheese.

This is a great thread idea, Larien! Since it's more humorous than serious, it really belongs on the Middle-Earth Mirth forum. I'm moving it there - please continue to read and post at the new location!


Hmmmm, what useful mathom could Bilbo give me? Perhaps some silver polish...

Thanks, holbytlass, for the 'great' meals-bilbo
It would be a cookbook and heartburn medicine.

Hm, since my wandering personality would always have me drifting off to different places, I guess Bilbo would give me either a nice walking stick or perhaps a copy of his map of middle earth.

Hmm...


Hmmm....

Well, I think (though, i'm not sure since i'm not him...) Bilbo would give me frames to put artwork in, instead of cluttering my home in every nook and cranny...

I think he would give me a (possibly incomplete) version of his book. In it he would write, "to my faithful audience: Arwen Imladris, I hope you enjoy having my tales in written form."

So this is where we admit our failings eh?

I would say that Bilbo would give me some nicotine gum or patches, but then he is a keen smoker himself, so perhaps not. Maybe he would give me a pipe, to steer me towards a better pipeweed experience.

I think that he would probably give me a set of pillows, to make the point that I ought to go to bed earlier and get a little more sleep, as one of current failings is waking up in an exceedingly grumpy mood.

Hmm, what would Bilbo give to me... perhaps some recipes. I'm somewhat famed for my cookies, so something culinary would be suitable.

Fantastic thread idea.

Let's see... if he was subtley commenting on my bad habits...

Quote:
For you, and you alone.
With exact replicas of several items of clothing that do not belong to me, but have crept into the drawers of my dresser. *looks down at jeans she's got on*

If he was trying to be genuinely helpful, he would give me several clerks to handle my paperwork. *mutters bitterly about a paper that is highly important, and yet nowhere to be found*

This is a no-brainer. Billy-bo would give me a nice, leatherbound journal. (It would smell GREAT.) The attached note would probably say something about filling its pages and sharing my gift with the world. That or he'd say, "Here. Use it for that meaningless romantic crap you're always writing." But, hey, I'm getting published! In your face, Bilbo!

Organization!

Bilbo would probably give me a gigantic shelving system with all sorts of little bins and drawers. I'm very disorganized; as I type this I have a Rubik's cube, a wind-up contraption that vibrates, piles of papers, erasers, pencils, several combs, post-it notes, ander other junk all sitting on my desk, and the shelves I have a decrepit and leaning like the Tower of Pisa.
