    Because it was describes that way in the bookses. Hobbit holes were warm, well lit, holes in the sides of the hill, and the walls were vaguely cylindrical,* so nothing was perfectly square and everything was an engineer's worst nightmare.

    *in my head, it came out resembling a wood paneled, book covered anthill.

    These things are SO old school... glad they are coming back though.
    My great aunt had hanging beds on the summer sleeping porches off of each bedroom. Hanging beds get less bugs than beds with feet on the floor was the way I got the explanation... Still... there were big globs of vaseline spread around the anchor points above. And the porches were screened for mosquitoes and other flying things.

    Also, Booter... since you discussed proper pronunciation of Ark'en'saw...
    How do you say Missouri...?

    I was always taught it's Miss-oor-ee or Miz- ore- ee. I'm Texan though, I could be wrong because I don't live there.

    Hmm..that's just Missu-rey. I don't like Missu-ra, that's too much like warsh.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    Since I have family from Missouri... it's Missu-ra or even Ma-zur-ah
    All others are evil evil offences in their eyes... kinda like Flo-rIda.

    But... but... *shudder* that's so damn REDNECK.
    (and where's this FlorIda you're talkin about? I only know florihda.)
    And while we're on the topic, it's Dall-iss or Dall-ass, not Dal-lass or D-Town or any of those other abominations. And the next person to pronounce Mexia with a 'ks' sound is getting shot. Same goes for saying Wacko instead of Wake-o and it not being a joke. Houston is pronounced Hyoos-ton.

    Remind me to never open my mouth if I go to Texas. I can, and do, mispronounce anything.

    And I was thinking about a hobbitish house that I'd build. Level floors are only necessary if you have multi-legged furniture on it

    Ahhhhhhhh!

    Flo Rida (like Ore-Ida), in addition to a really horrible way to pronounce Florida, is also an awful hip hop band. Bleh.

    What Niadknight... You don't like the folks who come to town and say 'Hooo-ston'. LOL
