We were going to watch a Hornblower in the middle of the day! Now, if you are from a big family, this idea of watching something in the middle of the day which your younger siblings aren't allowed to watch is a very strange concept. Also it's holidays. :D
But we did it anyway. We sat ourselves in the study and devoted about two hours of our time watching it, and saying which characters we hated, cheering on Horatio and Archie and their men and generally booing the stupid French guy with his guillotine.
|Can I just say how much I love his hat?|
And after that, my mind went working again, and yeah I thought 'Hey maybe we can watch the next one tonight!' And Mum said that was okay as well!
Seriously that was about 5 1/2 hours of watching the story of a British Naval officer. And we loved every minute of it. Rogan and I were the only ones who watched, and I think hes little heart was broken when both Archie (*sob*) and Williard (*sob*) both died. Even so, though they are both some of my favourite characters as well.
And through all three movies Rogan was asking questions and I was answering and we were saying who was irritating, who we liked, and who we absolutely hated, or needed a spine.
Anyway, it was great fun to do that, and today Mum is taking all the little kids with her to do some birthday shopping for Eden. Sadly, Rogan is going as well, so I shall have to find something else to do, I wonder what?
