Sorry - I've had a lot going on this week, including me being a wretched, mostly ill ball of stress. I should be back with some interesting news early next week.
Until then, let me just say this: I am a massively wussy geek. I've seen Return of the King eight gazillion times, and yet I still cry like a baby when the hobbits have to say farewell at the Grey Havens. (Wuss, wuss, wussy!) I'm still destressing over some recent events, and, so Ms. Insomnia 2005 once again is unable to sleep tonight. And, what's on Encore at 1 a.m.? Why, it's Return of the King - just in time for me to get all weepy all over again. (Dammit.)
Oh, and ladies - is it just me, or is Viggo Mortensen much hotter with the long straggly hair, beard, and cinematic filth of Middle Earth? Hell, maybe it is just me. Generally, I'm not into guys with visible dirt layers and hair that screams "Led Zeppelin Roadie", but in Middle Earth, it's quite nice.
In a completely unrelated note here at Non Sequitor Blog Theater, Marvel Comics announced today that Stephen King will be telling more tales of Roland Deschain, the Gunslinger, in comic form, starting next April. I swear to god, hearing this was like winning the lottery. Last night, the Sasquatch told me this (news had leaked prior to the official announcement) and, once I determined that my bigfoot bubba buddy wasn't pulling my leg, I had the biggest grin on my face.
If you read my blog early on, you know that I took a very emotional journey reading all 36 bazillion pages of the Dark Tower books over, basically, a two-week period this spring. I was totally wiped out when I finished the last book (which had me blubbering like a idiot at least four times), and I still find that the Gunslinger haunts the back of my mind. Damn you, Stephen King!
What is it with "guy" things making me lose it? The Lord of the Rings? The Dark Tower? Apparently, I flunked out of Girly Girl 101 a long time ago.
By the way, I just found this weirdass nightmare thing via Google Images. WTF, man? WTF?
