O, the shire

Okay, I may be singing a different tune in a matter of weeks, but tonight, I looove Early English literature. Maybe it's just the professor. It's hard to contain myself. However, I do foresee a required twenty-ounce coffee dosage for these night class sessions.

In other loosely-associated things, I am beginning to realize that I have a problem with fashionable things. Tonight, we had to fill out an information sheet on which one of the questions was about our favorite work of literature. I do have a difficult time pinning this one down. It's easy to just go with the Chronicles of Narnia. But it kind of bothers me that they are now fashionable texts to read. Why does that bother me? It is similar to this complex I have about "ripping off" music from other people. I think I have a fear of being a copy cat. How irrational of me.

Ah! I got my Spanish dictionary and thesaurus-y thing today. Thank you, UPS. It made my day a little bit brighter.

So I haven't ever really watched 24, but tonight, Mom told me over the phone that Sean Astin -- you know, of LOTR fame -- is on there and that I should watch a little bit to see him. She seemed to be impressed with how "cleaned-up" he looks, which didn't make a lot of sense to me. Then I realized what she meant. Mom. He's not really a hobbit.
