Gosh! It's the 10th of December already?!!

It has been a week already - seven days of utter laziness and unproductivity. I woke up very late in the morning, spend the few hours awake playing computer games, visited my mother until 3.00 pm and returning back to my friend's rent house to wait for his return from his part time job at a waterworld resort.

Yes, I am staying with a friend until the 20th December for now. His house and my mom's are not that far, scant 4 km apart. I stayed with him because his housemates can only return after the 20th, and he doesn't like to stay alone, especially at night.

Anywho, we got to cook our own meals - mainly because I am against eating out frequently, and got to talk to each other untill bored stiff and surprisingly, sleep early every night.

We watched Narnia; The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (3D) earlier this week and although I found it was decent, I was simply a bit annoyed because the film makers had strayed much from the original plot.

I've read all the Narnian books; from 'The Magician's Nephew' telling how Narnia was born till 'The Last Battle' where EVERYBODY died and go somewhere 'pleasant'.

So when somebody said "Eh, what happen? Is that the end of the story?" at the end of the film, there goes another ignorant who never bother to seek / read the books.

I look down on ye people from my high pedestal of fantasy; those thrill seekers who never bothered to read the entire Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Narnia etc series - and yet dared to comment that the films were mediocre at best. If you don't read the books, don't you ever dare telling people how much you understand the flawed story you watched on the silverscreen.

Sorry. I was simply vexed by the prejudiced reviews regarding a few of the best fantasy books I ever read by some ignorant movie-goers who never set foot in a bookstore (I blame FaceBook for spreading this).

On a happier tone; happy Friday! :D

Best part of this post: You said "anywho". Awesome.


Hey, did you hear that the Hobbit will start filming in February, be chopped into two films and they are bringing Legolas and Galadriel even though they aren't at all in the book?

Can you believe it!?

I really like the Narnia stories. I know you are enjoying staying at your friend's place for awhile. And cooking at home means you eat better food. Hope you are doing well.

Ooh, cant wait to check out the movie. I'm trying to get out of the chick-lit rut and read something interesting for a change.
I read the entire Chronicles of Narnia by C.C Lewis some time ago and it's good to see someone else who read them too but I should re-read them. Also, go into a corner and start rocking myself rapidly, remembering the good old days when I used to devour books.

I read all the Narnia books when I was a kid, long time ago. I remember that I enjoyed them, read the first one a few years ago and it was okay, but these are great books for kids, not old farts like me.
