So goes the refresher

Comments

Finally, finally, finally! B. and I are going to see The Two Towers tomorrow, so the first order of business after getting home from the airport was to pop in the extended version DVD of the first film, and, safely cocooned against the elements under flannels and blankets, immerse ourselves in the flavors and sounds of Middle Earth once again. Secondary goals: mortadella, lambic… lots of vitamin C as well, as the dreaded specter of illness has also struck.

It was a wonderful plan, in theory. Alas, the reality of time zones worked against our idealism, and less than an hour into the film, I’m the only one awake. No matter! Tomorrow will still be great! There’s something to be said for going into a new experience cold.

As for tonight, lovely readers, sometimes there are more important things than blogs. Sweet dreams!
