My uncle (who’s in his 70s) was here with his dog and he knows I have dogs and I like dogs too, so he showed me a lot of pictures and videos of his dog on his new smartphone (he has always had an old Nokia). Talked about how he goes to Ikea only to buy plushies for her, he takes her to a pet store a couple of times a month to bathe her and lets her pick out new toys and treats, takes her to dog play dates every week, etc etc
The Hobbit DoS is on TV right now and as I watch it I am reminded how much ‘Hollywood’ is in this. LOTR was made as a beautiful tribute to the source material and handled with such care. Now, while I believe the Hobbit movies were handled with care, these movies were made more for the money and it shows in the bloating of the story so much that they turn it into three movies.
I’m not saying there aren’t great things about the Hobbit movies (Thrandy) and beautiful moments (Thrandy), but it doesn’t pull at my heart like the LOTR movies did. The LOTR movies for me were truly magic and were near perfect for me even though things had to be changed/cut out of the film.
Penny’s carrot eating process. She eats about a pound of raw carrots a day. I used to peel them and cut off the ends but she eats them whole and doesn’t leave any bits behind. I was worried the carpet would turn orange but she always eats them in the same spot and it’s fine.
