One does not simply watch The Lord of the Rings

The ultimate sweaty, unkempt, non-alpha hero
... one also has to eat massive amounts of homemade butter popcorn, wasabi peas, blueberry muffins and toast.
Yesterday we watched all three Lord of the Rings movies, directors cut, in blue ray format and surround-sound, on the biggest feckin' TV we could find.

14 hours, including breaks.

Now that's a birthday party :-)

Nice! I think this may answer the question I sent you on fb. Sorry I didn't see this first!

Jennifer Denys said...

Exactly what I intend to do - one day!

Janine Ashbless said...

LMAO - yes, I think that does answer your question Jo!

Jennifer - this is something we wanted to do before The Hobbit opened. It wasn't anything like agruelling as I feared - I loved it all the way!

Mmm, Aragorn...

Oh yeah. It's funny how self-effacing he is (the movie version, not the book version). He's really not a traditional alpha hero, and I noticed that a lot this time. People are always having to chivvy him to speak up and take the lead.

It's quite right too - a human raised by eleves really would have a massive inferiority complex!
