It's been a tired time here in Froddoland. I've been on cleanup duty at work mostly and it is kickin my butt. I need to get a pedometer and figure out how far I walk each day. It has to be 4 or 5 miles easy. *sigh*
I picked up a new copy of The Fellowship of the Ring. I had totally worn out my old vhs copy. I'm too cheap to get the series on dvd. I was able to pick the vhs tape up for under $4. Watching it again has reminded me about my conundrum with Frodo. I've been using the names Frod and Froddo since well before the live action movies came out. Frodo had always fascinated me. But with the Peter Jackson movies, I came to realy dislike Frodo. He just seems to be a whiney little bastard that always needs saving. The real hero of the movies is Sam. He is always covering Frodo's ass. But still I use the name Frod. I just can't see myself as a Sam. hehe
That whole argument seems so stupid though.
Today Steve Irwin died. It bugs me that the death of a celebrity can upset me so. I really have enjoyed his various animal shows. His upbeat outlook on life was very appealing. My heart goes out to his wife and kids. I do think it was a blessing that he went out doing what he loved to do. I just thank god that it wasn't a croc that bit his head off or anything. lol
I'll have some actual knitting updates later. I've started a pair of socks with some Cherry Tree Hill mill ends I got off eBay. I have some issues with this yarn.
I need some rest though. Allergies are kicking my poor ass yet again. sniffle
