A Hobbit Hunting I Will Go

Peter Jackson is being awarded the Modern Masters Award at the Santa Barbara Film Festival at the end of the month, and there are rumors that part or all of the cast from Lord of the Rings will attend in support of Mr. Jackson and the movie as a final push before the Academy Awards. And I've got tickets, which were not hard to get, but still I'll be there and I've decided that while I'm there and while they are there that it is a good a time as any to catch me a hobbit. Of course an elf would work too. Or a King of Gondor. Even Gandalf will do as Kristen has suggested that he would make a good shopping buddy, and I'm inclined to follow her intuition in this matter.

I'm looking forward to the film festival as I will hopefully be able to do a little star watching as well as film watching. They're even going to be showing some old musicals on the big screen including my favorite Fred Astaire movie, Top Hat. If you're interested in what else they will be showing at the festival click here.

But don't forget to wish me luck on my hobbit hunting. I'm hoping to bag one and bring him home with me. Silly little hobbits. *GRIN*

Whatever. Ady has celebrity sitings. I have wishes and then near misses. She gets all the good stuff.

But not this time! I will get a hobbit.....probably not but a girl can keep wishing for one.

what day are you going?? what day are they supposed to be there? i would love any excuse to go up to SB, but LOTR sightings definately put icing on the cake!

you kicked the back of kirsten dunst's chair that one time and stole her panties. that was a definite celeb sighting.

ady, i am so jealous of you! did you actually talk to them?

nuala: bag me one too! sweet honey!

I coulda kicked her, but the only reason I saw her was because I was with my sister and she had the invite to this thing.

Jade it's for January 31st (or whatever that saturday is) and the film festival goes on till the first week in February.

yeah...i talked to them. Dominic Monoghan is really funny, Elijah is as adorable as you think he is and Orlando is very sweet.

but i only talked to them for a few minutes, they would never remember..but that will all change soon.

See this is why I should move to New York and mooch off my sister's star sitings so I can meet these people, because while I WANT to meet them and kid about catching a hobbit, she's already talked to them. *le sigh*
