Didn't think I'd be doing this as an adult.

I'm almost embarassed to admit it, but on the way back from Almaden Quicksilver park this afternoon, I stopped by a Burger King for no good reason other than buy a Lord of the Rings glass. Yeah, I know, I probably haven't done this since Star Wars came out back in the 70s, and even then it was probably at my brother's request. However, something as inherently cheesy as this just couldn't be passed up. Besides, the last straw was reading on Ian McKellen's Web site that this particular tchotchke is in fact Sir McKellen's "favourite" "merchandising curiosit[y]" from all of the LotR stuff produced as of last summer.

And how is it? Well... it's, um, pleasing. Of course, I don't know how long it's going to take up space in my house before I find somewhere else for it. The only glasses I've kept for a long time are actually earthenware beer mugs from Switzerland, from a festival back in 1998.
