It has come to my attention that more and more Hobbits are being featured in videos. Cousin Bluebonnett just made a soon to be released dancing video! It was very nice of those Life of Riley folks to play the music for Bluebonnet's video. I can't wait to see it! Additionally, Bluebonnett, Zinga, and myself are in talks with un-named producers to be featured in yet another Hobbit-featured video! I am sure Dinga and Moo will want to be in on this fun too!

With the rush to film Hobbits, maybe we should form some sort of Guild or Union or something? I have noticed that's what the Man race people do - form some sort of union. I'm not sure WHY they form these clubs... but I know they form them! When I asked Aunt Ceo about what a union is for she said something about, "union denziens breeding lazyness and breaking the backs of managerial economics." Ummmm... I'm just a little Hobbit and can't break anyone's back even if I wanted to unless it's a Neeker. So I don't think that's the union I was talking about (tho I am sometimes lazy... like after I have two strawberry tarts... or it's a rainy day... or it's a sunny day perfect for napping under a tree... or wellll .... lotsa times). When I asked Zinga, she said, "So they can get stuffed," and then she pushed me into Coldwater Creek.

After I finished crying and drying off and eating a strawberry tart (ok I had two) and taking a nap, I thot about it some more. So... my guess is that they form unions so they can coordinate on who brings breakfast, and who brings second breakfast and then assign someone to bring elevensies and so on. I mean HOW EMBARASSING is it to show up at elevensies with bacon and egg tasties only to find out that the person that brought second breakfast brought the exact same thing! I know we've ALL made that mistake more than once!

So now that we know what a union is for, we need a really really neato Hobbity name! For the union I mean. The Man unions are waaayyy boring named. Carpenter's Local #57... Khazad-Iron Workers #802... talk about real snoozers! But then again, Aunt Ceo always says, "You can never expect a Man to think with..." Oh wait... nevermind. I uhhhh... think Aunt Ceo means Men don't think of good union names.

I thot of some really GREAT union names, but I forgot them all when I took my nap. I know that one of them didn't even have the words 'union' or 'local' in it... but used the word 'LEAGUE'. Too cool, huh?! Yeah... I know... some people say I have a gift for that sort of thing.

Public Service Announcement - Be Wary of Imposters!

Ladies and gentlehobbits (oh, and you big folk that read this, as well), it has come to our attention that there is an imposter amongst us! The hobbit pictured here is not a member of our Merrydo family. She was seen skulking around Michel Delving after the Eriador Music Society's concert last night, presumably on Bounder business, but that may just be a cover for other nefarious deeds.  We shall be keeping a close eye on this one!

Merrydos in the News!

The Merrydos were mentioned in the Landroval Times!  Singa and Zinga were the dancing Merrydos mentioned, and I was one of the hobbits in the band - the well-dressed one, in a glamorous black gown, of course.

I also have it on good authority that we might be mentioned in an upcoming podcast by Lotro Reporter; it seems one of their hosts attended a recent Ales & Tales that we 'dos performed at, and was enchanted by us. We'll keep you posted on the status of that podcast!

First Submission

Today I thot and thot and thot about what to write here in this public notice. It's a very big thing when there is a blank page and you are supposed to write something. Cousin Bluebonnett is depending on me writing something so I want it to be extra special good cause she is popular and knows things! I decided to have a snack while I thot and so I had a strawberry tart. Ok, I had two... but... welllllll, they help me think!

At first I thot I should write something important, you know, like 'The Good Girl's Guide to Gregarious Grooming' or 'Who's Hinted to be the Happening Hobbit of Harvestfest'. Writing a Grooming Guide seemed really like alot of work so I didn't do that one. Anyone that's ANYONE reads Teen-Hobbit and knows that they will probably cover the important parts of Harvestfest, so that took the wind out of my rowboat, as they say.

I thot about maybe writing about armour or weapons or some such. And I thot to myself, "You silly Hobbit! What do you know about armour or weapons?" So then I said to myself, "S..." Oh! Wait! I forgot to tell you, when I talk to myself I call myself "S". It started with Zinga (my twin sister). She thot it would be cool if people called her 'Zin', so all her mean Dwarf-friends call her that.

So I thot I'd be even cooler and call myself "S". Other people don't call me that - they call me "Singa" but I call MYSELF "S" and that's still pretty cool. Aunt Ceo says it's ok to call myself "S". She says as long as I wear my prettiest dress and look in the mirror and say good things about myself that's called an 'affirmation' and that's a good thing.

But I can't talk in the mirror about Zinga and how she's mean to me, Aunt Ceo says that has a negative auroch or something. I don't understand it all but Aunt Ceo is wise! I think she has been around as long as Middle Earth has been Middle Earth - that's a LONG time! Aunt Ceo knows things, but she's scary sometimes too.

People call her 'the Doom of Thorog Reborn'. I don't know what THAT means, but I bet it's something important - and scary! I wouldn't want to meet Aunt Ceo in a dark alley in Bree! NOT that Aunt Ceo would EVER go to Bree! She says the people in Bree all dress like... well... I better not say what Aunt Ceo says.

Oh! and when I say I talk to myself, it's like, you know, in my head. It's not like that Mr. Aegthil fellow that talks to himself out loud! He says he has an inner ear problem... more like an inner beer problem if you ask me. Cousin Irdu can make beer! It's called Strawberry Stout and wow is it strong! I can only drink one of those and I start seeing things double and triple. I DO love that strawberry flavor tho - what I remember of it! Mmmm strawberry... I think I need a tart!
