Yesterday (and today, but that's unrelated) I had the day off. So I decided I was going to do what I'd been planning for a while... and have a "Lord of the Rings" marathon.
I bought the trilogy a couple of weeks back off amazon when I was drunk, was watching a TV programme about the 100 sexiest TV characters or something like that, and saw Aragorn and Legolas mentioned. Which, rather than turn me on, just made me think "Oooh, I haven't seen those films in ages!" So I immediately purchased them.
And therefore my plan evolved from there.
Of course, I didn't take into consideration one thing . . . the LENGTH of those bloody films.
Deciding to start the marathon at around 2pm was my first major rookie error. Considering the first film is ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY ONE MINUTES LONG!
Secondly, the dvd was busted and kept freezing, which necessitated me having to reload the whole thing and then find the point where I'd left off.
Which was kind of hard as I kept getting distracted by Facebook and therefore wasn't paying enough ATTENTION to know what point I'd left off at.
I FINALLY (at half past six!) reached the end of the first time, peeled the cellophane off the second film, popped it in the dvd player . . . and then took it straight back out and replaced it with "The Inbetweeners".
I physically couldn't sit through anymore of it.
I guess I'm not as much of a geek as I thought. Oh well...
