Quick 2 mile run yesterday! I love sweating this way!! We hit the hot tub and then the steam room after my run. I about fell asleep there because I felt so relaxed!
Today The Hobbit!!!!
Poster above, Gandalf with shape shifter Beorn!!! Aaaaah!!!!
I cannot tell you how dear The Hobbit and LOTR are to me! I read The Lord Of The Rings a looooong time ago and I did not think it possible for it to become a movie! Peter Jackson however nailed it and the first time I watched The Fellowship of the Ring I was in awe! He just went beyond my wildest dreams and every time a character would appear I would be like, yes!! That’s Gandalf alright!! OMG! And so…
10 years later P.J. brings The Hobbit to life and I felt like I was young again! Only this time, it was surreal to bring my son and husband with me…
And because I am such a Tolkien geek and so so sentimental, I cried… These characters, I grew with them and it will sound so cliche but they all did help me through some rough times. Is that crazy to say? I am 37yrs old! Lol!
My husband says The Hobbit has too much CGI which I agree… But hey, even my imagination couldn’t handle every single detail that P.J has made to bring The Hobbit to life! Am I selling myself too cheap? Perhaps I’m not one of those hard core fans who disagree with every single thing because they think Tolkien wouldn’t like it either. But, what do I know-what-do-they-know.
I cannot wait to watch Desolation of Smaug! Legolas is back by P.J’s choice… I think I’m ok with that!
Although, who the hell is Tauriel? We shall see soon!
Oh yeah, it is 4am and I am sharing all this… There’s clearly something very wrong with me!
P.S do I come off too teenage because of this post?
