Whew, lots of deep thinking this week. Time for a frivolous post. Last night I knitted and watched the first Hobbit movie, and it made me super sad because the whole sequence with the Dwarves at Bag End is just so absolutely perfect, it makes the second movie seem even worse. It’s like at some point Jackson stopped trusting the source material. But for at least that stretch, he nailed it.
I’m knitting a shawl, and the section I’m in has increases, three stitches a row for something like 50 rows, which is going to take forever, but it also feels very zen. All that repetitive action and at the end I’ll have this giant thing.
I also need to go do laundry and water a tree. (It is so dry here right now…) And I hear there’s a Muppet movie opening this weekend… (I haven’t been to a movie in ages. Two weeks ’til Captain America!)
Have a good weekend, y’all.
