ROTK EE DVD Indy Moot! *G*
What a great weekend!

First off, Kisa came down on Thursday night and I got to show off my house - squee! *S* It was late enough (about 8:30 pm?) that it didn't make sense to start ROTK EE - at least not start it and enjoy it. Plus, I found out that Jack of None would have some time between her exam and her flight after all, and we didn't know if we'd end up watching some of the movie together. So we watched "Wilde", which I hadn't seen before. Hey! That's ALL we see of Orli? Just one line as a rent boy soliciting work on the street? Sheesh! Lots of Jude Law, though. *S* But then I got to show her Fry as Jeeves... perhaps we'll win her over to the Jeeves/Wooster luuuuuuv! *S* Had pizza, stayed up late, and Kisa stayed up later doing writing.

Got up nice and late on Friday, watched a couple of hours of special features (geeksquee! Great job on the Tolkien info! the image of the nightmare makes it in! lots of nice info on little bits of dialogue put in from the book....). Drove down to Bloomington (about an hour) to pick up Jack of None at 2:30. Saw her room (Giles... *heeheehee*), had a yummy burrito, got the quick tour of Bloomington (just as beautiful a campus of limestone buildings as I'd heard!), and headed up to Indy, listening to Guster and "Wicked" - and a little bit of CoRo? Not enough time to get up to my house, so we geeked out at a bookstore (finally got the Billy SFX) before sadly taking Jack to the airport. But we made her read her great kid's book (that she drew for class) called about a little girl named Valerie (squee! *L*) who fights monsters. I'm hoping she'll scan it and put it up, but - hey - why not send it in to a publisher, JoN? I mean, you never know!

Got chicken curry and stopped at a CD store (got a Travis DVD!), then back to Guilford Smial and the ROTK EE DVD [OW - sorry, Kisa, Jacksonville just upped the score from 21-17 over Green Bay to 28-17 - sorry!] and... *sigh*. It was good. Just about everything seemed to benefit from and resonate more with the additional scenes - like how Pippin's song and tears mean more once you know he's talked to Faramir on a personal basis, and a bond is suggested. Still not happy with the portrayal of Frodo and Sam (Frodo is too piteous, and Sam too violent!), but, my... what a beautiful job Peter did again. *G* Listened to half of the commentary, with much squee over Dom wanting to "comfort" Elijah after the stairs filming, and Orlando being willing to do anything PJ would want - hell, he'd tongue Aragorn if told to do so - *L*! And, of course, cracked up over the Dom/Elijah interview. What a talent Dom has for mimicry - and for practical jokes! Finally... to bed!

And another nice late start - *G*. A little lunch, a little hanging around, and then a great time at a nearby gaming store, where I think I spent as much as Kisa! She picked up some great reference material on wars and the Navy that her characters are involved in; I bought puzzles and such. A little shopping in the street shops, and then - MOVIES!!!! "Neverland" followed by "Lemony Snicket". A strong rec for the first, a mild one for the second, which was neat, but didn't bowl me over. Plus, I wanted more Billy Connolly! *G* Strange similarities, though... Dustin Hoffman is in BOTH (!); a troupe of actors; Victorian era (sort of!); orphans... and so on. I told Kisa I thought she liked Neverland for not only having Johnny Depp, but in how it loves writers and blank books. She's really into her writing (yay!) and I think her series was playing out in her head the whole time she was here as she was picking up stuff to use in her stories. *G* Then a very productive hour at Barnes and Nobles (whoot for gay cowboy sex!), came home and screamed very high and loud when I found out Cal and barbary coast had found a Glen/Glenda for me! (*mwah!*). Finished the commentary on ROTK, watched a bit of Wooster and Jeeves. Then bed, and up the next morning (snow!), and goodbye. *hugs*

Kisa, thank you so much for coming down. It's a hell of a drive (8 hours?) and then 5 hours to Detroit today. Hope everything went well on the drive, with lots of good music. *S*

Oh! And wish you could have been, too! (((((((((hugs))))))))) Have you watched it, then? Silly me - I should check my LJ! You've probably posted already, and I've probably commented and forgotten. *G*

I wrote you a long email but forgot to ask if you're involved at all with Billy's "Loon" group. If so, they're having a get-together at ORC. I can give you details if need be.

Happy holidays, love! <3

Elijah's territory, but Billy's king and all three of them know it. He's got them by their dicks the second the door snicks shut. When he finally reaches for them it's one hand on each, fingers twisting in their hair as the three of them meet in a messy, wet, triangular kiss. Dom's back is harder and more angular; but Elijah's spine goes hard and straight when Billy's hand slips, cupping him hard through the denim of his pants. There is no moment quite like this; no other time when they are this close to what really makes them tick.
