The Couple That Snarks Together . . .

Just finished watching the extended, super-duper-long version of Return of the King (one of my Christmas presents to Jeff). We love The Lord of the Rings trilogy, honest. But the movies can get a bit ponderous in spots, and we find that a series of well-timed snide remarks makes the viewing experience that much more enjoyable.

Jeff and I work well together that way. I can't say we're especially clever, but I love our inside jokes and completely disrespectful allusions to other movies. During one of those Frodo-reunites-with-the-gang scenes, for example, with the Hobbits cavorting and erupting in joyous laughter, Jeff begins mimicking the maniacal laughter scene in Austin Powers. Ha! Dr. Evil and Frau Farbissina in Rivendell.

Okay, it was more funny in person, but still.

Happy weekend!
