my hermit mantra

Holed up in my room while five friends watch "The Fellowship of the Ring" in the other room. The one movie I cannot watch and the one movie I want to watch most of all.* I've loaded up on drinks, chips, cookies and extra water; I've had my dinner, but if it comes down to using the bathroom or getting ice cream, I'll be forced to don headphones to block out the dialogue and magnificent film score. My plan is to combine the following: 1) watch "Winter's Bone", 2) watch "Misfits", 3) play "The Sims" and, 4) read Part 6 of Robin's fic accompanied by loud music. It should turn out to be one of the saddest nights of my hermit life.

*I’ve promised to watch all three Lord of the Rings films with my twelve-year-old nephew, who has never watched them, but I have known for years that he’ll love them. He finally asked me a few months ago to watch them with me, and I told him that I would wait to watch them with him if he would wait and watch them with me.
