CC: The Reason for the Season

When you wake up this Christmas morning, make sure that you don't lose sight of the true meaning of the day. It's not about Santa or presents, shopping or cooking, family or Jesus. December 25 is the anniversary of the day that the fellowship of the ring set out from Rivendell (at least according to wikipedia). So this Christmastime as you're enjoying your time with your family, spare a thought for poor Legolas embarking on a dangerous mission against the hosts of Mordor.

A happy Christmas to you all from all of us here at There and Back Again: An Elf's Endeavour (except for Dan who doesn't believe in fun)!

Keep checking in next month for my final preparations before I set off on my adventure.

CC: Daisy, Daisy....

I'd just like to congratulate Dan on discovering the most boring possible arrangement of 41 words that the world has yet to see in the previous blog post. I know he's been spending a lot of time lately working on becoming even duller than ususal, and it just makes me so happy that he's decided to share the fruits of his labour with us. Look out HAL, the world has a new sentient computer that will soon take his place in the history of cinema. He wouldn't hesitate for a second to cut out my life support systems either if he could.

DV: An editor is me?

I shot a documentary the summer before last.
I'm making a longer cut.
This has nothing to do with Elves.
