Sometimes you get your wish [Nov. 30th, 2004|06:39 pm]
[Current Mood |bouncyexhuberant]

My flist was dotted with squealing fan-girls and -boys today, raving about the new Return of the King preview, but as our computers at work do not have Flash or Quicktime, I was unable to see it. And I had class tonight.

Boy, I wished I could go home.

My wish was granted. I walked to school, shucked off my coat in the Law Review office, and walked past my classroom on the way to the restroom. Class Cancelled. I glanced at my watch. The last freeway bus of the evening was due in about a minute. I grabbed my gear and ran out the door, getting to the bus kiosk just as the bus rolled up. Got home, booted up the 'puter, and went straight to the video. Watched it four times in a row.

Damn. This is gonna SO rock. Much great stuff restored. I'm sorry that we don't get the scouring of the Shire, because that really is Merry and Pippin's chance to shine, but the rest of it looks great.

14 days. Meep!

I had a big puddle of drool on my lap, and geeks everywhere were mass jerking off.

I want it now!

And, yes, I'm screaming like a fangirl (on the inside).

...And meanwhile, I'm cursing, screaming, rattling equipment and generally being surly in the next room as I work out my technical issues. Excuse me.
