Help me, internets, you’re my only hope. (Sorry, it was a gimme, we’ve had Episodes IV and V on since I got home from work.) Anyway, I’m reasonably good with photo editing software. I’m self taught, I can do interesting and useful things like remove items, clean up red eye, change brightness and contrast, etc. I have, however, run into a problem that I can’t solve.
Most of you know that Geoff and I met on the internet. Most of you probably don’t know that Geoff had some very particular questions for me before we first met in person.
Buying things off the Internet can be fun and economical. It can also be infuriating, frustrating, maddening, and make you want to throw furniture.
This December, the first of the two new Peter Jackson films based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s book The Hobbit will be released. It will be called The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey and needless to say I can hardly wait to see it. I have been a fan of Tolkien since I was in middle school, WAY back when. I remember (and used to own) the animated versions that were put out when I was a kid. So yeah, I am totally a geek about Tolkien. And of course Kelly likes him too, else we would not have included a little Tolkien in our actual wedding ceremony. No, we did not have anyone dressed up in costume or anything*, but we did use the Song of the Entwives instead of a traditional psalm.
My new e-mail address is eleventhma AT gmail DOT com, NOT net. I am smart. Not.
