My After Hours

I bought some VCDs and DVDs and then packed them in my Suitcase.
Since I shifted I hadn't opened them, there are still some work going on the bathroom and i have left a key with the Builder so I just kept my Suitcases Unopened. So when I was going through my Credit card bills and saw some entries marked Planet M, I rememebered that I had some movies unopened.. so last two evenings have been spent watching The Lord of the Rings I and II, the third one I will watch maybe on Monday evening. And Since I hadn't bought a TV yet, for the same reason that I don't stay home when the worker come and work on the bathroom, I watched them on the Laptop.. the 12" screen though great for mobility and gives no problems on excel-powerpoint-Wordpad-explorer and Messenger, But for the movies, I would have preferred my old 15" Sattelite anyday. But still, it wasn't a problem as I watched from close, very close. But what made all the difference was I had to watch with earphones. I have pair of good earphones from Sony.. and watching with earphones made me realise many things I might have missed when I first watched LOTR. I don't know if I missed them or have forgoten( my memory is pretty low on the long term faculty). But watching with earphones made me take each and every word. And it was good. I didn't even know that the real name of Gollum was Speagol and that it(sic) refererred to itself(sic) as us/we.

By the way, whatever happened to that Blog on LOTR. There was a pretty popular blog maintained by someone who called himself gandalf white. http://gandalfwhite.rediffblogs.com, he had been dormant for more than year now. I will just check out if he is back. One of my early Blogger circles..
