“If I were going to watch all the extended edition of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy in one day, would anyone be up to watching them with me?” So the query was posted and so people replied in the affirmative and so the Lord of the Rings Butt-Numb-A-Thon came to be.
Laurie and Burt provided us with three meals which was good, because we were watching movies from 9:00am to 10:00pm. Here was the spread for Breakfast. We also had sandwiches for lunch and tacos for dinner.
And we begin.
And we continue. And some of us discover that sitting on the top part of the couch is preferable to the couch.
And so it ends, and I take a picture of the liquids that got me through my day. Tea in the morning, water through the day, hot chocolate to get me through the last two-hour stretch.
I confess, I didn’t really know what I was signing up for, and it was rough going in the middle*, but I’m proud to say I did it. There were nine of us (if you count Lily the dog) who watched all three movies. We should get tattoos.
*I actually left to feed the cats simply so I could get up and walk around. I even did lunges, my legs were feeling so dead. Since I stand at work now, I really never sit down for long stretches any more.
