Anyway, the cruise has hit Greece now. It's halfway through the trip and I have managed to co-exist with the parents, so yaaaaay. Got some pics of the Kirk bear in Mykonos. He is, of course, as popular as ever. :) But man, I miss traveling by myself. I am so much more relaxed when it's just me and the Kirk bear.
I have battled my way through The Last Continent, and yes I know it's supposed to be based on Australia but I'm just....not seeing the point, still. Maybe I'll re-read it later... I just don't feel the wizards very much, even Rincewind.
Have also been watching "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" in French and German. Ahhh Legolas. I mean, Legolas!. I would have been perfectly content if the whole film was just him hitting the orcs with his bow + sword + yes, head.
