The reign of Aragorn has begun...

First of all, those who have not seen ROTK, get thee to a theate now!! While there was much that I wish has not been left out (Christopher Lee for example), it was still one heck of a thrill ride. Aragorn and Legolas were as hot as ever, Orcs are about as effective as stormtroopers when it comes to fighting, and Eowyn is my kind of woman. And if that isn't enough, the new HP:POA trailer also blew my socks off. Black is going to be an awesome character, and I can't believe how much those kids have grown. Oh and if that wasnt' enough, Jackson put 12 endings on the film, and we finally get to see Aragorn after he has been introduced to shampoo! I could go on and on.

Now if I could only get as into the books. Tolkein is a genius, and a great storyteller, but he has also got to be the wordiest writer in the English Language. Beautiful prose, but one just drowns in the details.

But on to other subjects. I've been thinking again, and that is always a scary thing. I tend to poor a lot of my heart out in my diary, as do many other diarists. I put things in here I don't normally share with many of the people in my realife. While it may seem wierd to many to keep a private journal in such a public place, for me it is a kind of therapy of sorts. Much of what I write I would never want people at work or my family to read.

Often in reading other peoples diaries, I find people doing things or having opinions that I just don't agree with or in my mind I find wrong. In otherwords, I form judgements of people based on this, which may not be totally acurate as, reading entries in someone's journal is hardly the same as knowing that person, though it does give you a pretty good impression. I have kept my opinions to my self, because I know that these same people could easily find many things in my life by which they could also judge me, and leaving annoymous comments is just cowardly, stupid, and mean.

I'm not sure exactly what I am trying to say, except that sometimes I wonder if I come across in my journal to other people anything like how I see myself, or if I come across something totally different. I know how people come across to me, when I read their journals, yet in 99% of cases I have never met these people and have nothing to compare my impressions with.

Even in a journal one never gets the whole story. Even when people are putting their heart and soul out, they still censor themselves even if it is uncounsously, somettimes they betray their own inner feelings, and trueselves, when they are trying hardest not too. That is you can tell alot about someone by what they don't say, as you can by what they do say.

I am not sure exactly what my point is in this ramble, except that it is so easy to look at one piece of what someone says or is doing and point fingers or judge badly, while still not realizing that there is always more to the story, and that others could point that same mirror back at us, and we might not like what we see in ourselves.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
