I had a smashing headache for most of yesterday, along with a strong desire to just curl up in my bed and sleep for about 12 hours. I was feeling better by the evening though. Just took some food and Aleve.

I rented up the Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring DVD at Blockbuster and I was a little peeved to discover that another DVD is coming out in November with all the extra “Special Edition” footage and extras. Bummer. I still can’t wait for December and the Two Towers. I liked The Fellowship of the Ring, but it is lacking the detail of Tolkien’s books. Some things needed to be sacrificed in the translation though, and I think the director did a right good job of conveying the timbre of Middle Earth and the struggle between overwhelming evil and oppressed good.
