So...last night, MDH and I made up some uber-foot-long-sandwiches, and then we settled in front of the TV to enjoy our latest purchase.
Hooray for the Lord of the Rings Extended Version DVDs with hours and hours of extra behind-the-scenes documentries!
We've been wanting to get the films for ages but decided to wait until the set was going really cheap before buying...I think we must have saved about £40 so it is definitely worth waiting for.
MDH and I are going to watch the films in one hour instalments over the next few days (weeks?). We'll have to pace ourselves otherwise we might suffer from a surfeit of Tolkein and then go into Obsessive Fan Mode (very bad thing because then we'll fight over who gets to reread the books first).
MDH is not so interested in the commentaries and learning about how the film was created, so I ended up watching that by myself into the wee hours of the morning (MDH had to be up early today anyway).
So now it's noontime and I'm sleepy - which is good because now I can have a long enough nap this afternoon to keep my resources up throughout the night.
