a Hobbithon..!

This Friday, my friend Larry and I are going to lock ourselves in his home theatre (a real home theatre, huge wall sized screen projection, surround sound, home theatre, not one of these little fifty inch tv jobs)light a roaring fire in the stove and watch all three Lord of the Rings movies back to back. Extended versions. Thirteen hours of Middle Earth. Food and drink and pipeweed and sleeping cats in your lap; Bagels, cream cheese, lox, jellies, fruit and coffee for breakfast; Spiced meat, cheese, hummus and sardine sandwiches for second breakfast and elevensies; Mordor Chili, Hobbit Stew for lunch. Inn of the Prancing Pony Pub fare for high tea - Scotch eggs; marinated mozzarella balls; pepper shooters; shortbread; cheese (Irish Cheddar and, of course, Brie); exotic nuts (ok, California pistachios, but they're fun to eat!); punctuated with bouts of good tobbac and pipeweed, all washed down with various libations worthy of The Fellowship... And that's what it's all about. We're a fellowship of two - beyond friends.
pearls before swine...
