When I got back, I watched The Fellowship of the Rings with Al. I realized that I missed (or had forgotten) numerous plot details. I'm a little sad that the second movie isn't still playing somewhere in the area. The DVD-viewing was interrupted for a brief visit to Al's neighborhood tavern where pitchers of Rainer were consumed.
Today I mostly went to the office to work and havesome meetings about ongoing and upcoming projects. Later: Ellen's big send-off.
