Bon soir, mon cheri...

Gooooood Morning! Hoe-lee crap, y'all. I just woke up like, an hour ago... and granted, I was up until 3 a.m. sipping tea, knitting, watching FotR, and taking shots of NyQuil in an attempt to get my head to clear, but I was out. I woke up thinking something about how it must be 10 o'clock and isn't it lovely that I have so much time to myself before I go to work tonight... and no. No I have until 6, at which point I continue to "train the new guy." Training, minus the free food, kind of sucks for me because I can't be doing my homework in my downtime, which I was kind of counting on. Ah well, at least I'm not physically exhausted anymore.

Seriously though, watching FotR made me re-realize how much I absolutely love LotR. Nevertheless, Mt. Doom is totally the lamest name ever. C'mon. Tolkien can come up with entirely new languages, but he can't come up with a good name for the site of teh ev0l?

Whatever. I feel like Bilbo... "thin, like butter stretched over too much bread." I need a break. I need a day, just a single day to myself. I didn't have one last week, I haven't had one this week, and I wont have one next. It's taking its toll on me. Health-wise, I just can't seem to get better. Mentally, I feel restless and caged. Emotionally, I feel stressed but drained. I don't want to be running on empty at the beginning of the semester, but I have literally no time to refuel. As it stands, I feel like a shell of myself.

I wonder if it's the time of the year. It seems like no one can get enough sleep; everyone I know feels drained physically and emotionally. I hope you feel better though, it'd be nice if someone did.

yep, if you name your mountain Mount Doom, it's no wonder bad things happen there!

"thin, like butter stretched over too much bread" oh I love that line. I love how Ian Holm delivers that line.

Ohhh I know! Sydney and I watched FotR the other day, and it made me so nostalgic! *_* LotR...

*hugs* I know how you feel, kind of. I've been feeling really stressed out lately, too, trying to figure out this college thing. It's fun, yeah, but so very draining. I hope you get a day to yourself sometime soon!! ♥♥

Other Tolkien idiosyncrasy that annoys/ed me:

I understand that the Elvish and Rohan languages were based off Celtic stuff but honestly, did he realize how confused first-time readers would be when trying to dissimilate Eowyn/Arwen and Sauroman/Sauron?! Theoden/Theodred. And why does every character have about 30,000 names? (Aragon/Strider/Elessar, Gandalf/Greyham/Mithrandir?) *head explodes*

That, honey, is why I really enoy the movies more. To be perfectly honest, I can't even make it through the books. It's such a slog.
