On Hobbits, Wednesdays and eh…. me being back.

So this is a blog post I’ve been meaning to write for a while now. I’ve written a few notes in a few drafts but I never actually got down to doing it.

EDIT: I just realised that this post is exactly a month since my last post (minus the image, as that technically wasn’t a post) ๐Ÿ˜€

Yesterday, I had a half hour to spare so I went to the library (yeaaaaaaaaaaah), and decided to go on the computers and blog instead of looking at weird books about Radio Propagation or Ancient Sumerian history.
I gave up on the idea of my coming back post and decided to go to Google news to fins some story yo blog the shit out of. I did, however, find an article on the website for the British newspaper, The Independent on the 2011 census. It had some surprising results on a number of things, mainly religion and ethnicity, however. I did post a link to it here, but for some very very weird reason, it hasn’t seemed to have been posted, or even saved for that fact, but oh well, I’ll hopefully have that done by the weekend if I’m not already busy (which I shouldn’t be).

I can’t remember exactly whether I’ve mentioned this before or not, but Wednesdays are my day off, so all day Wednesday I effectively, have a day off. That’s probably the reason why I’m writing this now, and come to think of it, in the future, it would be a very good slot to assign to such things. Best make a note of that.

So the Hobbit will be out on Friday. I’m sure numerous WordPress people will be out in flock to see it.
I actually bought The Hobbit, or There and Back Again) by JRR Tolkien about a year ago and started to read it, but I got bored around chapter 5, Riddles in the Dark. I started reading it again the other day, deciding that instead of starting at the beginning (which will mean I will probably give up again) or go from where I left off. So I started chapter 5, and ended up reading it all.

After going through all the weird riddles Bagginesย and the creature, which was a quite interesting part of the book, I went online to find out how far in the first film will actually go, as I then planned to try and read ahead to catch up for when I go and see it. I then find out they are actually making three films, each coming out a year after one another. WHAT COULD BE BETTER ๐Ÿ˜€
But seriously, the first film is meant to be based around the first 6 chapters, which is pretty convenient considering the fact that I have one chapter to got to get that far ๐Ÿ™‚

I plan to read on a bit more though, to maybe get ahead as to what is next. I hope the film is not a waste of time. Weirdly enough, my dad wants to go with me, which is probably the first time he’s actually asked me if he could come with me for something. Amazing.

And remember kids, drugs are bad. Stay away from bad. If you are bad, however, don’t get caught. Michael Jackson didn’t. ๐Ÿ˜‰
