One small unobtrusive piece of jewelry to rule them all.

Or something to that effect.

Currently re-reading The Lord of the Rings for the first time since I was seventeen. I forgot how tedious it can be. But it's still highly enjoyable and worth the dull moments. Thus far the most tedious scene involves the jolly character of Tom Bombadill. Not a favorite charactor. I was disappointed when he was left out of the movie, because I was curious to see how he would be portrayed, but it's no loss in my mind. I can't see that he really helped the plot at all.

One of my favorite things about the book is the poetry sprinkled throughout the pages. Some of it is long and drawn and a lot of fluff, but some of it is pretty damn awesome.

Mildly irritated at the moment. I am WAY behind on the Terminator and series, and what does Crabtree put on as soon as he walks in?? Yeah. And then he's sitting there spoiling it for me. Thanks, buddeh.

Anywho, just thought I'd write about something other than my lame life. At the moment I am on Chapter III of Book Two of the Fellowship of the Ring. The company has not yet left Rivendell.

There are 6 books, they changed it to a 3 volume set because of paper shortages and to keep the price down. Refer to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lord_Of_The_Rings#Publication
Anyway, I love that series and have read it about once a year since I was 12.
