Back in Middle Earth

I had been listening to audiobooks on the way home from work. I listened to Bonfire and Darth Plagueis and The Exorcist. 

I started listening to Book of Swords but it kinda put me off after a while. I'm not sure why. Anyway, I got out of the habit. 

The original idea was to read stuff that's new to me. Recently, though, I decided I needed some Tolkien in my life again so I started Lord of the Rings (unabridged, not one of the dramatized versions). 
I'm in the midst of one of my favorite parts, the Old Forest / Barrow Downs bit (and the Shire-to-Rivendell journey in general). Pure joy.

It's probably the best thing happening in my life right now.

Death to DST

Adjusting all the clocks for Daylight Saving Time always makes me feel like a collaborator. Like, did I really do everything I could to fight this abomination before I recanted?
