Books, movies, games, TV, football with friends, hanging out with friends & family etc.
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
It was a hot summer. I used to read it in my room with the air cooler blowing through the window, so that room stayed very cool. I used to read the book in the afternoons.... and it was bliss.
Favorite Tolkien character:
Legolas. Because he was so noble, pure, serene and yet... badass. He was a brave fighter and a loyal friend...
Which can be seen (book) by how he took Gimli with him to the West... and (movie) by his little exchange with Gimli at the Black Gate.
