So, I was browsing around the movie channels this afternoon on this Christmas-eve eve, and I stopped on the last 45 minutes of the first installment of The Lord of the Rings. Now I am going to unabashedly and unapologetically claim to be an all things LotR fan. If it's got Tolkien, elves, dwarves, wizards, taverns & inns, etc... I'm all in it. The scene where Boromir dies... weeping. My son watches it with me every time, and is nearly as big a fan, but he was looking at me out the corner of his eyes as I wiped my eyes and sniffled my way through the scene... I cry at scenes that I've seen 100 times. I reread the first Harry Potter book... teared up at the end.
