My Lord of the Rings Trilogy FINALLY arrived Wednesday. While I was disappointed that the case was so damaged (poor packaging), the books were in fine shape. (And yes, I'd get a new case, but of course I ditched the packing slip before I knew. That part of the rookie mistake is entirely my own.)
So - The Fellowship of the Ring is DONE! My laundry (that normally would have done on Sunday) isn't done, but the book is. :)
And I've pretty much decided that I want to be an elf when I grow up. I mean . . . look at this . . .
"But mortals have not been our study. We have other business."
". . . for we dwell now in the heart of the forest and do not willingly have dealings with any other folk."
"Indeed in nothing is the power of the Dark Lord more clearly shown than in the estrangement that divides all those who still oppose him."
Yeah, yeah. It's old and you've probably read it, everyone else has. I tried to before but just could not get it going. This time around is a lovely thing though. And yeah - I'm pretty sure I'm going to be an elf when I grow up.
