Ernest's Plans for Tuesday

He has decided to have a Lord of the Rings Extended Version marathon tomorrow (Tuesday) from 8 a.m. to 8.p.m. I vaguely recall that these are the approximate lengths of the extended versions:

FOTR - 3 hrs
TTT - 4 hours
ROTK - 5 hours

He said...I can't turn it off for bathroom or snacks. Obtuse mom said, why not? Because I'll go over the time limit. I didn't know it was a race.

I promised to provide ROOM SERVICE because I don't want him to starve. The bathroom business he will have to deal with on his own. I am not providing what the truckers use.

Can we meet for drinks? The Matron is also providing room service. But she must point out that your child has better taste in film!

Nice Mommy! I think its terrific he wants to do this. And yes, the whole "pausing" bit would make it take forever, but he's young. A couple of hours wouldn't kill him.

We watched all 3 in the theater at once (Return of the King was not the extended version) on Trilogy Tuesday. I think we were there 13 hours. It was splendid.

I am cracking up! I was just going to point you over to Minnesota Matron's blog for her similar post.

Have fun!

Matron, virtual drinks are on me! California wine, margaritas, or Oprah's pomegranate martinis. Ernest has always had good taste in films but he also loves Simpsons and South Park (the older brother influence).

Louise: 13 hours? What other Trilogy Tuesdays have you been to?

Cheri: It's freaky, these kids wanting to spend a glorious summer day (or three) watching TV! But Ernest has been spending 5 days a week at the zoo so I'm OK with him having some indoor vegetative time.

Because there are many of my Secret Boyfriends in those movies.....
