The board looks so weird from an iPhone! I hate that I can see ads too.

And my iTunes update made my computer angry. Please don't crash!

What did it sell?

^ That's weird. I can see "what did it sell?" when looking at all the threads but nothing when I am in here but my partially quoted post.

To answer: the novelty shop mainly sold sex toys, clown figurines, and toy monkeys with (curse you iphone) *cymbals*. The thrift store had numerous pairs of care bear roller skates.

Told you it was weird

PS- the roller skates were all circa 80 something and adult sizes. I bought a pair. Everything else in there creeped me out. Don't mix the naughty bits with clowns. I hate clowns.

My SO isn't remotely interested in The Hobbit either, which kinda sucks for him cos he's going anyway.

I haven't seen the LOTR films, well I saw the first and never got around to seeing the others, I have however got them on my wishlist for Christmas.

The books are brilliant, I was "made" to read them by a fellow student nurse many moons ago - he was horrified that I hadn't read them and had no idea who Gollum was when he cracked a joke about him. Loved them (quite liked the student nurse too)

I had no idea Richard Armitage was in The Hobbit. Be still my beating heart.

Perked up and considered seeing it if only to watch yummy Richard Armitage...

Discovered he's a dwarf and not at all attractively presented in it and lost all interest again.
I think he's GORGEOUS as Thorin Oakenshield! Mmmmm.
That he is....made me start rethinking if I like my men grimy.

He makes one hell of a dwarf king.

There one was scene that made me think "Damn, Tolkien; you sure know how to write some great heroes/kings."


Did someone say JGL?


Nah. He looks a bit grouchy and old and big nosed for me.

I've never read The Hobbit. I've never read LOTR. I tried once and was so bored I gave up. Pure torture. Besides its all very Christian, white male orientated. I like my fantasy to a) have women, and b) have a bit of diversity. I felt pretty much the same about the films. It's like they were never ending, they had some good moments, but I just didn't like any of the characters, except perhaps Sam, but I can take or leave him. I was hoping Frodo would die but alas...

And the whole time watching I was tortured by Sam hoping he'd fall off a cliff or on Sting.

I vaguely remember being bored by The Hobbit in sixth grade when I read it. I felt that Bilbo was using the term "adventure" far too often and rather loosely, because all they seemed to do was walk around, have some minor mishap and then...um. What was their goal, even? Like, Bilbo wasn't supposed to go into those mountains and trick Gollum and junk and I know he didn't start out all "Yes, Gandalf, I will do anything you ask!" but why did they go off on this voyage in the first place? It's been so long and I've cared so little, I really don't know. [ETA: Was there a dragon with a weak spot in his belly? That can't possibly have come from the same book, it sounds like it should have thrilled me! But I remember it in association with this book. ???] I didn't really get into LOTR either, but I read up to about halfway through the second book while trying very, VERY hard to make myself like it because a few of my friends were so in love with it, not to mention trying equally hard to make my friends believe I wasn't bored with one of their favoritest things ever.

The movies were pretty. I don't have overall impressions on them other than that they were there, I watched them and I enjoyed being with the people I watched them with. Oh, and that Sam totally did ALL the work, so WTF is with all the other characters praising Frodo and running into battle "for Frodo" and crap?! Not only did Frodo try to abscond with the ring and act all squirrelly about it on more than one occasion, but he hardly carried the thing to Mount Doom. He was just an unnecessarily heavy and person-shaped holder for the ring that Sam carried all that way.

Oh! And Smeagol likes his fishies raw. Tricksy hobbitses, they ruins it!!! I thought his utter joy in holding the ring (for that split second...) was oddly cute and actually felt bad for him afterward. He both bugged me and pleased me with his existence. Other than that, I have difficulty separating my thoughts on these stories from the fanfic my friends wrote for it and the random LOTR-themed silliness we engaged in. Because another friend gave me a random ring she found, I had to be Frodo, and I was NOT happy about it. But it's cool, because the ring disappeared in the middle of our camping trip, leaving a circular hole in the outer mesh pocket of my duffel bag. (Seriously, I doubt the ring made the hole, but it was totally round and it was there and the ring was not. It was amusing.) The one who always had a hairbrush to use in the locker room after gym class was Legolas, obvs.

When you try to watch some of your favorite scenes from a novela but all you find are the censored-for-US-broadcast versions.

iTunes I hate you.

But beating the hell out of shortbread is a good way to prevent further damaging my laptop.

To buy or not to buy, that is the question.

It's quite the price reduction!

Even though I'm on holidays for a couple of weeks, I just checked my work email. That's how much I don't want to go shopping.

I have to go to Walmart on a weekend.

Walmart. On a weekend. 2 days before Christmas.

The more I delay, the busier it gets.

I'll be so happy when this blasted 'season of joy' is over. Humbug!

Those boots are fantastic. Way more than I will pay for boots but hard to resist that sale price!

Jeepy (which I missed by Y and iPhone wanted to correct to Kerouac WTF), that was the last bit of enabling I needed.
