What dwarves do to blow off steam . . .


About fedoralady

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

  1. ROFL!!! Glad I checked again before I switched off for the night!! NOW can I have those sweet dreams . . . . . . . pretty pleeeease????

  2. Richard would never ever be silly enough to drink Diet Coke or diet anything! He’d know how bad artificial sweeteners are and I’m the same – if I’m going to drink Coke at all, it has to be the real thing! Wonder when softdrink producers are going to get smart and start using Stevia instead of cane sugar or artificial sweeteners?

    Nah, he’d drink beer or wine or vodka 😉 Me – I’ll stick with sparkling mineral water on a day to day basis and still have a whale of a time. But, please, I’d like some salty nibblies!

    Love the idea of his doing the hokey-pokey 😀

    • I know you can’t see the cans completely, but that is Coors beer, not Diet Coke. An American beer. That gadget is known as a beer helmet. Also notice he has a mug of beer. We’ll say that’s a British pint. Really , I did get it right. LOL PS I HATE Diet Coke. 😉

      • Whoops, sorry…yes, indeed, it does say “Coors” on those cans! 😀

        I HATE Diet Coke, too – wish I could convince Melanie to leave it alone. Ah well….

    • And I couldn’t resist the Hokey Pokey reference when I went back and looked at the boot screencaps again. Actually, I would have loved to have actually seen them all doing the Hokey Pokey! LOL

  3. Oh wow…doing the Hokey Pokey in school will never be the same! I will always picture Richard with that enormous boot on!

  4. ROFL!!! Love that Thorin is wearing his beer bonnet AND has a mug in front of him … all the better for Thirsty Thorin Thursday, eh? l)

    These images will get me through my workday! Thanks, Angie!!! 😀

  5. One of my favourite meals the last time I was in Scotland? THE best fish and chips ever with a pint of lager with some lime added!! Fantastic!! Do you think Thorin would go for that? Maybe NOT with the lime. I’m guessing he’d be more of a beer man like you’ve shown here! Richard mentioned some drinking songs that the dwarves will sing, so by the sound of things there are going to be some pretty riotous scenes. Bring ’em on, I say!! 😀

    BTW – I can’t stand diet drinks. Orange Sanpellegrino is my favourite non-alcoholic tipple at the moment. The best drink I EVER tasted (and I’m certainly not what you would call a drinker) – a frozen Bellini with a shot of Raspberry Vodka!!! Unbelievably good! Just Google to see a picture!! 🙂

    The tune to the song “Do the Locomotion” just came into my head but I changed them to “do the hokey-pokey” instead!! LOL!! 😉 Line up everyone and all you dwarves and let’s dance!!!!! 😀

    • I could see Thorin chowing down on the fish and chips with lager but I agree, I think he’d skip the lime. 😉 While there will certainly be drama, I think these films will also offer considerably more light-hearted moments (largely courtesy of those dwarves along with Martin). 😉 And lots of singing dwarves is A-OK with me!

      I can manage Coke Zero, which tastes reasonably like the real thing, but I mix it with the regular stuff. I rarely drink, but it’s nice to enjoy a tasty libation now and again. I still think one of the best drinks I ever had was the rum punch on board the Monarch of the Seas on a 1993 cruise. They used fruit tropical juices with the Caribbean rum . . . delicious! I actually drank enough of those to get a bit tipsy.

      • I should send you my recipe for Sneaky Tiki punch, although ideally you need the Wonder Twins clad in lap-laps to bring you some and sing to you while you lounge in a hammock.

        • The Wonder Twins . . . *guh* I hadn’t thought of them in a while. *blissfully naughty smile crosses face* And then they could give me a nice massage, I am a bit tight in certain places . . . *thud*

    • A real tornado could rip off most off his clothing, but he’d get some serious cuts and abrasions, not to mention bruises from all the flying debris. Yes, he does have great legs, and I’d be really glad to see them stay that way (that love of skiing notwithstanding).

      • Why wouldn’t his legs stay like that? I seriously doubt he’ll be able to do a lot of skiing if he’s going to be regularly employed in films and TV (and why wouldn’t he be) due to insurance reasons! Are you worried that he might break one of those gorgeous legs?

        • Yes, I worry. It’s in my nature. Getting bashed hard by debris can result in bad cuts, abrasions, bruises, and all kinds of fractures (simple, compound, complex). I was reasonably active, but not reckless, and my legs have suffered from multiple fractures and serious abrasions. Skiing ups the risk, naturally, as even experts can hurt themselves. Acting is not without its dangers. I recall how Olivier ,when he was doing the film of Shakespeare’s Richard III, got hit by an arrow in the leg, in the one place where neither he nor his horse were protected.

          • More than one actor has been injured while filming (sadly, even some have been killed through terrible accidents). My hope is for dear RA to stay safe and sound. One thing about filming TH, they had extra protection from the padding beneath their costumes, which had to help.
