A Little Note of Joy

I apologize for the cryptic nature of this post, but it can’t be helped.

There is cause for some rejoicing in the Frenz household. Oh, it might be premature for me to say this, but I have to say this somewhere! Something which has weighed heavily on this family since September 2010 may be alleviated in the near future. It’s not a sure thing yet, but it’s looking pretty good, and if it happens, we will be spending lots of time at this place in coming months:

And my laptop will go with me.

Whatever happens, SO and I are learning in a way we never knew that it’s a waste of time to sweat over all the things you should have done, could have done and would have done. Just do something.

New Meaning to ‘Unexpected Journey’

The One Ring is hosting an Oscar party in 2013 for ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,’ and I think we might be invited. Check it out here.

The Art of the Tease: Waiting on The Hobbit Trailer

I thought I knew about teasing, but the building of expectation for ‘The Hobbit’ trailer has taken teasing to new levels. The last time I was this tightly bound, I was watching a pregnancy test stick but that never gave me a tic! Now if I even hear or see a word that looks or sounds like trailer, I jump. Early this morning I was working on some business issues and reading about possible marketing strategies. I caught site of the word trailer, uh, I mean mailer, and my heart sped up. A few minutes later, one of the kids said they were going over to see trailer, uh Taylor, who lives next door. Phew! I’m not sure how much longer I can stand it. And really I don’t understand why I’m so jumpy since the trailer won’t be shown until this evening. Won’t it? Yes, I’m paranoid I may miss it, and I want to see it as soon as it comes out!! I dare not tell you how many times I’ve visited various websites. My poor browser has never worked so hard trolling the web. ;-)

And I want to hit something! Which puts me in good company since the comments I’ve read around the web have threatened bodily injury to someone if the trailer isn’t shown soon. Not being the violent type, I would never threaten bodily injury — not verbally anyway. In my head, there are all sorts of violent things going on.

Until further notice, this is a possible link for watching the trailer.
