Actually, a blue whale is bigger than an elephant, but whatever

I finally saw Return of the King yesterday, so I can show my face in public again. It's no surprise that I loved the movie. I was surprised, however, that Misty enjoyed it so much.

Because of her pregnancy, Misty tends to go to the bathroom 700 times a day. I was sure she wouldn't be able to sit through a 3½ hour movie. She only got up one time, though. She kept whispering that she needed to, but she didn't want to miss anything. The baby also enjoyed the movie — she pounded on Misty's belly during the battle sequences.

Afterward, I had the audacity to suggest that, while I loved the movie, I still thought Finding Nemo was the best film of 2003. Misty was incredulous. "What?!," she ranted. "Are you crazy?! Didn't you see those elephants?! 'Nemo' didn't have anything nearly as cool as that!" This is from the same woman who saw The Two Towers last year and hated it because she thought it was going to be a movie about the World Trade Center.

Legolas now graces our computer monitor's background. Apparently, he's a hottie.
