Friday the 13...my NOTHING day

So, as it seems to be common knowledge due to my overwhelming need to tell you people everything, I basically have the entire day Friday off. I do a little thing in the morning, then I sit on the couch for the rest of the day. My wife is taking the kids to the Grandparents' house all day!

I need your advice. Answer the poll, then give me justifications.

Just don't try to do that thing you usually do when no one's watching.

I put in a vote for LOTR because that option was getting lonely. You can make a beer drinking game of that also if you like. Just drink whenever a hobbit appears on screen.

Actually, I have drank (drunken...drinked) whenever I am made to feel inadequate by Legolas. I get hammered by the time they reach Moria.

Oh. Oh. Hmmm. I don't know, but I think I'd just spend the morning drinking heavily if I was having the "snip-snip," but that's how I handle recovering from any surgical procedure. Not particularly creative, I realize, but it works in the numbing department.

+1 - I was watching the end, and there he was...I shouted, "How in the hell did he do that!" Boonen was left flat-footed, and it was friggen hilarious.

McEwen is my hero...well, for about 30 seconds yesterday. Awesome final sprint. Seeing the aerials of Cantebury Cathedral made me giddy....architecturally, historically, and artistically giddy.
