Hello World!

Yes, the day I've been waiting for since before I made double figures and pulled the book off a shelf in the library is her tomorrow: the first Lord of the Rings film opens in cinemas.

I'm wondering whether to go along tomorrow and chance being able to get in to see it. After all, it will probably be booked out... unless I go early enough. I refuse to book online since Warner Village messed up my booking for Harry Potter and charged me twice. According to my bank statement, I apparently booked tickets in a place called Acton. Uh, yes, right.

Either way, I hope I get to see it soon. If I can get all these spots of purple paint off my arms, that is. I can't go looking like some strange Trek alien now, can I?
