Triple Threat

The Lord of the Rings, introduced by the cast, with a talk by Peter Jackson.

And it's on a Saturday.

Now I'm experiencing the true meaning of conflict: I've always been Shabbat-observant my whole life. Okay, in college I probably stretched things a little (sleeping through Shabbat dinner and then feasting on cheese popcorn at 3 AM doesn't necessarily scream sabbath spirit to me), but even now that I'm breaking some of the rules it's all for the core purpose of celebrating Shabbat as a time to step away from the needs, demands and stresses of the week.

I'm not sure I can justify going to watch LotR as a Shabbat activity.

Hence, conflict.
