Happy Birthday Bilbo and Frodo

In honor of Bilbo Baggins' birthday, I stayed home and watched all 11 hours and 15 minutes worth of the extended version of the Trilogy.

Yes, I imagine this does prove what a geek I am. Oopps!

I read The Hobbit when I was about 12 and I loved it. I read the Trilogy soon thereafter, but I must admit I have a VERY hard time getting through The Return of the King.

Kinda like today, when I had a heck of a time sitting through the final battles.

This life we live is a spiritual war, and I keep running from battle, or losing in battle, or not stopping to take time to celebrate the victories.

So today, for the first time, I took time off of work to celebrate the Baggins' birthday. I am glad I did, but I don't think I'll do it again next year. (11 hours and 15 minutes felt like eleventiy years!)
