I’m off this weekend, the first true weekend off in at least a year. I don’t know what to do with myself
At work today I thought what if Douglas Adams had written the Lord of the Rings trilogy. So I decided to give it a go and wrote this.
This is the story of ‘The one ring’. Perhaps the most remarkable, certainly the most successful source of absolute malice and hate ,ever to come out of the great forging volcano of Mount Doom. More popular than ‘The nine rings of man ’, better smelling than the seven rings of the dwarven lords’, and more beautiful than the three rings of the elven kings: Narya the ring of oh my god my hand is on fire: ‘Nenya: the ring of whats so great about a ring that’s always wet anyway?, and Vilya: the ring of there’s a wind storm flowing out of my hand!’. And in many of the more relaxed cities of man on the western coast, the ‘the one ring’ has already supplanted the great ‘power hungry king’ as the standard repository of all pain and suffering. Because although it has the ability to change size, contains much that is evil and dark - or at least wildly fun to wear when trying to hide - it scores over the older, more pedestrian work in two important ways: first, it is slightly more golden, and second, it has the words ‘one ring to rule them all, one to ring find them; one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them’ inscribed in small, friendly letters on the outside. To tell the story of the the ring, it’s best to tell the story of some of the minds behind it. A hobbit, from middle earth, was one of them, though as our story opens, he no more knows his destiny than a Ent knows the history of the East Moria trading Company. His name is Frodo Baggins, he is a nearly four foot tall hobbit, and he’s uncle has just given him all of his possessions.
People are crazy. Glad I’m not people. Finally away from the madness.
Shopping at a grocery before a, according to the common man, apocalyptic snow storm is like seeing pure anarchy for milk,eggs, bread and cheese and wondering how the human race ever survived without grocery stores.
Heading out on an adventure. A day of relaxing and fun I see in my near future.
After 10 days of work, I finally have two days off. Thank god because I needed it.
