When I saw the movie poster for The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring in a theater one day o those many years ago, I just started sproinging up and down like I had pogo feet. The rapidly bouncing joy and excitement built up too quickly and it exploded in bunny-like jubilation.
So you can imagine what happened today when I ran across this:
Hyperventilating, wildly flailing joy. My dad started reading me The Hobbit when I was 4, and by the end I was reading it myself. I have been completely and utterly obsessed with the trilogy/series my entire conscious life.
Perhaps you have heard stories of geeks so unbridled in their geekdom that they obsess about living in that world, often to an unhealthy level. Avatar fans are particularly susceptible to this, as evidenced by their Facebook page.

But yeah, I’m totally one of those people.
