Some Days...

I like to stay busy. Very busy. I'm a workaholic. 

Most days I keep busy, even if it's just researching stuff online, or working on a manuscript, or magazine article. But I generally do try to stay occupied.

And then there are days like today.

I don't think I did anything constructive today, beyond the bare necessities. The weather outside couldn't decide if it wanted to rain or be sunny, so it flipped back and forth betwixt the two; which maddens me to no end. -_- I was also feeling tired, and more than anything I just wanted to curl up on the couch with a warm puppy and watch the extended version of Lord of the Rings. First episode, if you please. ;) Although the second one ain't bad at all, but I was in the mood for hobbit birthday parties. 

There was just one problem: I didn't have a puppy, or a LOTR movie. Phooey. I thought about improvising with a goat kid and a Youtube version of said film, but I couldn't find that either (the youtube that is; goat kid was easier to find). 

So in the end I spent 15 minutes watching all the LOTR trailers ever created and then crashed for a one hour nap. I didn't realize how badly I needed that nap until I woke up!

Most days I'm an Energizer Bunny that is always moving... But some days are nothing but "crash and burn" days where all I want is a long, humorous movie and a furry companion beside me.

Today was that day.

I know, isn't it?? ;) I love the faces on the little kids while Bilbo's telling the story. Makes me smile EVERY time I watch it! LOL.

LoL! Sounds like fun, but I'm not sure if I could have sat through that many movie trailers! :P We should watch the 3rd movie together, I still haven't seen it this year!
