This Saturday happens to be Hobbit Day, which is the birthday of the hobbits Bilbo and Frodo Baggins. In case you missed the memo, Bilbo and Frodo are two fictional characters from J. R. R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit," and subsequently characters in the movie series staring Orlando Bloom and Elijah Wood.
The series happens to have an extremely high mark on the geek meter and a very special place in my heart. I wouldn't say either character can really hold the "geek" torch, but the impending day of celebration got me thinking about who I admire most in the geek world.
I've been obsessed with unmistakably geeky Bret and Jemaine from HBO's Flight of The Conchords recently. In last season's "The Actor" episode the two actually dressed up as hobbits when shooting a video for their song "Frodo, Don't Wear The Ring." We're probably lucky Bret eats "Lasagna for one" instead of real hobbit food like Lembas Bread. That might lead to geek overload.
