When you see this, make a post in your journal or in a community. It can be anything: a crosspost of something you've posted on Tumblr, a few words about the last thing you read/watched, or just a "Hi, how is everyone?" Then go read your f-list and leave at least one comment.

Okay, so we finally went to see Hobbit yesterday. It was sort of ridiculous but entertaining. Remembering LotR (the film), I have now decided that Thranduil had two sons: he just liked the name Legolas so much that he named each of them Legolas. Also, the 'saving Gandalf' scene was WTF, but I don't care, I just ship Gandalf/Galadriel and like seeing the Big Guns out and about, however unreasonably.

I kind of want to reread LoTR now... and I agree with everyone who said that since PJ isn't allowed to film Silmarillion, he's sticking as much of it into Hobbit as he can.

Reading now:

Hobbit - yes, yes, I went to see the film. Rereading with it still in mind, it's fun to compare. However, I only have it in Russian translation, and now I rather want the original.

Gavin de Becker, Gift of Fear - rather interesting observationss, though I know people who'd find them self-evident.

Have recently finished:

Nothing since last Wednesday.

Am going to read next:

Probably return to Corrigan's bio of Wellington, or to a rather charming mystery called Nun in the Closet.

Oh dear

“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs”
