Rain and LOTR




Well, since it's been gloomy and gray all week, I thought I'd talk about the rain. One of my favorite things in the world. Actually, any type of precipitation: rain, snow... hail, etc. Don't forget thunderstorms! I have no idea why I like them when so many people don't. I've always been fascinated by them ever since I can remember. I used to freak my parents out by laying down on the grass in our backyard staring up at the thunderstorm for hours. Although I have no backyard where I live now, I compensate by going to the balcony instead. For some reason, rain gets me all spacy and slightly homesick (I have no idea why). You gotta admit, the pre/during/after-rain smell is pretty delicious. Of course, the weather forecast has been predicting rain for days in Spain yet I've been sorely disappointed. I would say there has been about ten minutes of rain in total this week. Just a lot of chilly wind and leaves fluttering down (annoyingly) onto your head.

On another note, I've been reading the first book in the Lord of the Rings trilogy for a few days now. I have to say, it is quickly becoming one of my favorite books. Of course, even though I was an avid watcher of the movies since I was a kid, I never got to the books (I am ashamed to admit this). I remember how "magical" LOTR was when watching it as a kid; while I'm flipping through the pages the same feeling rises inside me. I really look forward to finishing the books and watching the movies again! I'm also very excited for The Hobbit, which is coming out next year. 

Oh yeah! Speaking of, is anyone surprised at how quickly the year's passed already? It's almost November!
