busy, busy, busy

Saturday, December 06, 2003

I woke up at 2:30 AM, and it's been all downhill from there, a mostly wasted day. I did help Maggie clean the house, and I did go pick up our new bed, so I guess that's something. I had planned on going to dinner and a movie with Maggie and a friend tonight, but I made the grave error of reading in bed and ended up falling asleep around 4:45 or so; when it came time to go, I opted to stay home and sleep. My punishment: being rudely awakened by sirens and screeching tires around 6:00. Wide awake not even a half hour after everyone left to go out. Lovely.

I have been waiting for December 17, 2003 for the last two years. My enthusiasm remained high until the past few weeks, when early reviews of The Return of the King started to pop up. Though The Two Towers left me somewhat disappointed, my personal threat level for ROTK being just as unfulfilling remained at "Low." However, with the recent reviews it raised a notch to "Guarded." Now, after having just read this new review it has jumped over "Elevated" straight to "High." Please note: there are major spoilers here, so if you haven't read the book (or have) and don't want to ruin the experience, stay away.
