The one thing I hate about vacations is going to work again after. It doesn't help that you've forgotten half the thing you're supposed to know, and your computer refuses to start up again....ever. God, I need a vacation!

Caffeine deficiency 

In lieu of my New Year's Resolution, I've decided to go on a diet. This diet was recommended to me by a family member, so you can't really say no, can you.

Anyway, this 5-day diet consists of eating nothing but vegetables, tea, and the diet supplement drink provided. I could live on vegetable, the problem is I can't drink coffee, at least, not the way I like it. It doesn't help that this is a "Monday Suicides" day. *sigh* Maybe I need a diet that let's you drink coffee.

If I don't blog within the next few day, say a prayer for me as I have gone into coma from caffeine deficiency sysdrome.

New Year's Resolution 

Well, this is a first for me. I've never made one before, but since I have a blog, I figured why the hell not.

So, here goes: Nick's 2004 New Year Resolution ( in no particular order)

1. Lose some weight
2. Try to remember's more friend's birthday
3. Try to meet more people. (Online doesn't count )
4. Make more money.

Well, that's all I can think of. Looks simple enough. I wonder why so many people have trouble keeping them. *rolleyes*

Monday Suicides 

There's this thing that I do, which I call the "Monday Suicides". Every Sunday night, I would delay going to sleep for as long as I can. I don't know why I do it; maybe I'm trying to hold on to the weekends, maybe I'm insane, but the results are always the same. A very, very bad Monday. Last Sunday was the worst. I stayed up till 4 in the morning doing God knows what, and come Monday morning, I downed 3 cups of coffee in the morning just to keep awake. I need to stop doing this. *sick*

Return of the King [Don't read if you haven't seen the movie] 

Before I start raving about the movie, let me give you some advice. Never watch a 3 1/2 hour movie on a weekday at 12 in the morning, no matter how good or how much you can't wait. It's even worst when you're driving and the cinema is hours away. Driving home that night was one of the worst experience ever!

Anyway, on to the movie.

Return of the King was a blast. I had extremely high expectations for the movie, since the third book was my favourite of the three. Suffice to say, I was disappointed. A lot of the parts left out of the movie happened to be my favourite parts in the books. The Denethor-Faramir subplots were way underplayed. Eowyn and Faramir's romance we're not even touched. Sam forgot to wear the ring. The scouring of the shire didn't happen. And on and on.

But don't let all that deter you from watching the movie. It's farking brilliant. The good parts outweigh the bad in so many ways that you don't even start to think about it until long after the movie's over.

The movie started of with a chilling tone, the retelling of the transformation of Smeagol into Gollum. The descent into madness was one of nightmare, a masterpiece of cinematography and storytelling. Other great scenes include Pippins song, Eowyn facing the Witch-King, and Sam's line on the slopes of Mount Doom; "I might not be able to carry the ring for you, Mr Frodo.......but I can carry you!".

The hobbits really come into their own in this one. No longer do they have to live in the shadow of Elves and dwarves and kings. Though I have to say, the ending where everyone kneels to them is a bit overdone, IMHO.

*sigh* Time to re-read the books.

First Blog 

I'm starting a blog cause I've run out of place to rave about Return of the King. Sad, isn't it.
