Fix some popcorn and put on your mithril pajamas
Since I'm taking a fairly long holiday break, I figured I'd devote a day next week to a DVD marathon of epic proportions. My first thought was to watch the fifth season of "The Sopranos," but decided I'd wait until just before the new season starts next year. Then I considered watching all six Star Wars movies, but I'm just not feeling it right now. Band of Brothers? Nah, I did a hardcore viewing of that over the summer. And then it hit me: all three extended editions of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I've been wanting to watch the series back to back for some time now. Plus, given the theatrical release schedule of each movie, they remind me of Christmas time. It's going to be a test of will, persistence, and ass-durance, I'm sure. But I'm just geeky enough to do it.
