Things to do while watching LOTR. And update about plans.

Stand up halfway through the movie and yell loudly, "Wait... where the hell is Harry Potter?"

Block the entrance to the theater while screaming:

After the movie, say "Lucas could have done it better."

At some point during the movie, stand up and shout: "I must go! Middle Earth needs me!" and run and try to jump into the screen. After bouncing off, return quietly to your seat.

Play a drinking game where you have to take a sip
every time someone says: "The Ring."

Point and laugh whenever someone dies.

Ask the nearest ring-nut if he thinks Gandalf went to Hogwarts.

Finish off every one of Elrond's lines with "Mr. Anderson."

When Aragorn is crowned king, stand up and at the top of your lungs sing,"And I did it.... MY way...!"

At the end, complain that Gollum was offensive to Ethiopians.

Talk like Gollum all through the movie. At the end, bite off someone's finger and fall down the stairs.

When Shelob appears, pinch the guy in front of you on the back of the neck.

Dress up as old ladies and reenact "The Battle of Helm's Deep" Monty Python style.

When Denethor lights the fire, shout "Barbecue!"

Ask people around you who they think is the next "Terminator" sent from the Middle Earth of the future to assassinate Frodo Baggins.

In TTT when the Ents decide to march to war, stand up and shout "RUN FOREST, RUN!"

Every time someone kills an Orc, yell: "That's what I'm Tolkien about!"

During a wide shot of a battle, inquire, "Where's Waldo?"

Talk loudly about how you heard that there is a single frame of a nude Elf hidden somewhere in the movie.

Start an Orc sing-a-long.

Come to the premiere dressed as Frankenfurter and wander around looking terribly confused.

Remove the top off your drink, then proceed to light the straw on fire and tell people in the seats around you about a great battle that took place in your cup long ago.

When they go in the paths of the dead, wait for tense moment and shout, "I see dead people!"

Imitate what you think a conversation between Gollum, Dobby, and Yoda would be like.

Release a jar of daddy-long-legs into the theater during the Shelob scene.

Wonder out loud if Aragorn is going to run for governor of California.

When Sam holds Frodo's hand (or otherwise), start singing, "The Ambiguously Gay Duo!"

When Shelob comes on, exclaim, "Man! Charlotte really let herself go!"

That's your amusement for the day. For note, the current count of people going to be at the premiere with me are: Heather (my date), paisleychick, (kragen will be with us for dinner, but not the movie), hatchling and her date, kryscat and her husband, whiskeypants, suesquarepants, and of course myself. We will be working out the details for dinner soon. As is, Heather has to work until 6pm, and it looks like hatchling and her date will be in town that afternoon a bit earlier to hang out with me. paisleychick and kragen both have daytime jobs and will probably not be available until about 6pm as well. So I think we can set a tentative time for dinner as about 7pm or 7:30. 'Where' is still to be determined. There are many restaurants around the theater, and I'm open to suggestions as to what kind of food we are all going to be in the mood for. I can't quite manage a Middle Earth cuisine, but there is good food around none-the-less.

    Please go watch it. Completely work safe, only six-and-a-half minutes. YouTube video featuring Keith Olbermann's standpoint on California's…
