Laundry and bread done, dishes... not yet. I MUST take the dog for a good walk today, for both of our sakes. We went on quite a trek Friday, but did just a token walk on Saturday, and nothing at all on Sunday.

I did see the Hobbit on Sunday, and enjoyed it enormously, though it could have used someone to haul in the reins a little. (Rock giants with no plot purpose, doing the same tilty-rock-shelf-scary stuff that we saw in the LotR? Meh. It looked like robot fight movie stuff someone applied some fake rock veneer to and then went WILD with the crumbly, crushy CGI. Also, Jackson really LOVES his flight scenes across rickety catwalks, doesn't he...) LOVED Gollum. Loved the trolls. The setup stuff for LotR was an understandable addition. Radagast... eh. He was sort of adorable, but unnecessary. The rabbit-sled was too much stretch of the imagination for me. It just... rabbits don't... it doesn't work... just, NO. (Giant eagles, though? I was fine with that. Go figure.)

Have a cute baby photo. I think we could all use more cute baby photos on today of all days.

In fact, have two. But imagine lots of giggling with this one:

Hello adorable rainbow baby!

IIRC, the rock giants are actually in the book, but so was Tom Bombadil and PJ sensibly left him out, so. And yeah, PJ and his fight scenes. I started humming the Benny Hill theme under my breath during the Goblin Town breakout.

Somewhere on the internet there is a dog sledder's analysis of the rabbit sled.

I don't think they've gotten to Tom Bombadil yet. He's sure to be in the next one I imagine.

EDIT Never mind, confused him with Beorn. Whoops!

I liked the stone giants just because I remember reading the book and thinking, "Wait, what now?" when they were mentioned.

The bit with the Goblin King on the bridge made me laugh just because it was a nice sort of foreshadowing for the Balrog confrontation. Gandalf should stay off bridges.

In other news, dang you've got a cute little guppy.

The Hobbit was the first movie I watched in a theatre after 3 years--I hadn't been in a cinema since Slumdog Millionaire! It was enjoyable and not as hurl-worthy as I thought it would be (I saw it in 3D and expected nausea). Then again, I love Martin Freeman.

The guppy photos are always welcome. She looks rather pensive in the first one.
