Well there goes the neighborhood Ermm I'm sure she'll behave.... giggles

So I went to the movie tonight ... Desolation of Smaug. After seeing it, I have mixed emotions. First I will say that I wish that I had never read the book because it is so little like the book that if I had not known all the changes I would have enjoyed the movie much better. Confused

Not sure what was worse though, all the changes or the people behind me with their non stop unmovie related chatter and their baby!! Angry

Miah you know very well, that where one goes the other is sure to follow, and besides it is sooooo much more fun when she is here.

I've heard the new movie is wayyyyy off the books again. Though good reviews in general. Like you say, I think if we hadn't read the books or known the storyline beforehand we'd enjoy it a lot more. Not sure I'm in such a hurry to see it as I was before. Maybe after xmas...

As for the people behind you, they need a good hard nudge in the ribs. You don't take little babies to the movies!! Callum is three and even now I know he'd not still still or enjoy so long being stuck in the same place expected to be quiet. Some people have no sense nono

Oh yeah! a big hurray! I'm glad its over with Yesss!. Bah Humbug!  I spent more than I wanted but not enough to put me in the poor house til next pay day at least. I spent the day yesterday putting everything away and tidying up the house so there is no evidence it was even here, lol. Onwards! c'mon spring! summer! now for some green grass, full leafy trees, dry roads and shorts! Big smile

I've only not posted because every time I even think about it I get interrupted. I only have three more days on holiday so I'll have to try and make the most of it. I need my "personal" time and this is it so...

Yeah, that movie... still can't get over that couple bringing their baby to the theatre! Talk about Wacko I almost want to go see it again but I'll wait now for the dvd.

I thought the movie went through the chapters in the book incredibly fast. They made it seem as if Bilbo and the dwarves were only in Mirkwood for less than a day! No!
And...well I could go on and on but yeah I was disappointed that it is sooo little like the book and put to be made entirely for the fast action scenes. Legolas looked fat, lol and some picture shots made Bilbo seem as tall and as big as some of the dwarves, which seemed weird to me. No, I think PJ & crew must have been smoking crack when they perceived this story. Sure I admit the action and Smaug looked incredible, which was awesome, but it was not even close to being as good as say... The Two Towers.

Phurgh Phurgh Phurgh! *Wafts dust away* Dagnammit you're right! Where did that come from? I shall pull out my 'supermatic duster 3000gti with oomphomatic capabilities'and rid the city of such ickiness post haste!
I beg figiveness for my absence. Various RL issues have reared their ugly heads again and as much as I chop them off, the buggers just keep coming back! I am here now though and hopefully can continue to make my presence felt both here and *whispers* Over there ;)

No worries... I should probably do my income tax and GST too when I think about it... I have to find one more bill and the GST is doable in a few clicks  Yeah for quick books. this year I'll actually be getting GST back rather than paying it and I'm certain I'll get money back on income tax because it all went to starting a business. though I'll need to pay CPP likely.

Hoth will mostly keep me entertained in Evendim.  And I'll keep trudging along in the Streats of Minas Tirith :)

actually what i find that hinders me most is not being able to put to words what I am thinking... I think perhaps too much outside stresses is what is distracting me from furthering my story that I wanted to do here. What got me thinking the other day was the question: what kind of characters are my characters? I have yet to develop some kind of back ground on most of these characters I have that they all seem to be the same, which is what I don't want. So, in my planning thread I will need to further develop stories for each and every character (which is plenty enough work). So this is my motivation to get back in here and carry on. I'm stuck with the guy at the stables right now because I don't want to characterize him too much of being a boring/unintelligent guy that has no personality.... which is kinda how he's turning out, and I don't want that.
I hope that others that have wrote here will eventually have enough interest to come back and I'm sorry for going away for so long. flowers

It's okay I disappeared as well.  It's why I tend to stick with one or two characters so I can actually make them a bit more dynamic.  However it tends to mean they end up doing things like running the House of Healing, and the Army and the Smithy hahaha... or at least they use to.  Not enough activity really for that here.  Though I think I found an old member and finally dragged him back by his beard...

Just swinging by with a hello and a hug. RL has been seriously up and down lately and I haven't been able to commit either the time or the brain cells to any writing. Little things keep chipping away and every now and then I let them get to me and try and hide away, not good. I am currently in the process of trying to kick myself in the behiney so I can find the oomph to come and play again. I miss you Miah!! xx
