Just to let you know that I have added a small section to Chapter Two of A Journey With Frodo - "A Far Green Country". As far as possible, I'm trying to keep everything in chronological order and I believe this little episode took place during the six week training period.

The hobbits and their scale doubles have a dress rehearsal - in the car park!!



Elijah calls over to Dom's scale double, in a perfect English accent "Martin, you look just like him".



Dom: "You lucky, lucky man!!"
They conclude that Martin is very flattered by this remark!!



A contemplative moment for Elijah:


PJ: So, can we just strip everybody ... (I'm saying nothing)
... everybody down to their jackets please - you can keep the trousers on!!
Spoilsport!!!



Elijah appears to have invented some sort of game to keep them entertained.
"stand in a line, like you're waiting for the bus ...


and when I say 'mingle!!' you mingle ...


but don't cross the line 'cos then you lose points."
Well, at least Billy looks interested!!


PJ: "Ok, if you could just do some walking around."


Elijah asks Billy, "How's the missus?"




Elijah: "What's your problem?"
Dom: "Whassup?"
Elijah: "Whassup?"


This reminded me of ...


this - many years later at Collectormania!!


PJ giggles - "It's very bizarre, isn't it?"


PJ - "That's a good one for the old dvd!!"


I'm really hoping to get Chapter 7 ~ "Playtime" posted before I go into hospital on 27 April - but considering that's only 2 weeks away I don't hold out too much hope!! I'm going in for a knee replacement operation - I'm not sure exactly how long I'll be in but I know it will be at least a week. I'm well on my way to becoming the bionic woman - I've already had both hips replaced!! I expect to be off work for around 3 months so I should get a lot of extra computer time during that period (hee hee!!). I only work two days a week now but I still enjoy my time off - though a less drastic way of getting it would be preferred!!

Finally, I'd like to wish frolijah_fan_54 and harukameko a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Hope you're both having a wonderful day:)

Thanks so much!! I am having a fabulous day and you have helped to make it even better!!

I love your Journey with Frodo chapters so much - what a gift you have given to us all!!

Hope all goes well with the knee replacement - and that you can really enjoy the 3 months off afterwards!! You really are the bionic woman.

Thanks for this lovely edit to Chapter 2, Pauline.

Finally, I have the Limited Edition FOTR DVD (I'm going to have to get them one at a time I'm afraid), and loved the extra hobbit sequences. Still not nearly enough new Frodo/Elijah material, but I'm grateful for anything - and I also noticed how Elijah spoke to Martin in his Frodo English accent in this clip. I'm sure I remember reading somewhere that PJ encouraged the actors to use their character's accents in RL, such as when they were ordering in restaurants, etc, to help it become more 'natural' to them, I suppose.

I'll try and drop you a line before you go into hospital - I hope the knee surgery goes well, and that you'll be all the better for it. I'll be thinking of you.

Take care.
Love, Blossom.

You're welcome, Blossom. Glad to hear you have at least one of the dvds at last.

I remember reading somewhere that PJ encouraged the actors to use their character's accents in RL, such as when they were ordering in restaurants, etc

Funnily enough, I'd been thinking about that exact thing when I was doing this post, and trying to remember where I'd seen it!!

Less than 2 weeks to go now til the op - it's getting scarily close, although I am impatient to get it over and done with:)

Oh wow, I hope the knee replacement is a complete success. I'm just starting to get arthritis in one of mine, so who knows what the future might bring.

And thank you for these fun pics, especially that last one! :D

*hugs and snuggles you*

Many thanks. I believe when the arthritis isn't too advanced it's possible to have an injection that will relieve the pain for a few months, so if yours gets any worse (which I hope it won't) you'll probably be offered that first. So many people (mostly women) seem to have this problem.

Glad you enjoyed the pics:) *many hugs*

Those last two pics always crack me up.

Thanks for the wonderful addition and best o' luck with the knee operation. Bionic woman...hee. I wonder if they can make a person look like Farrah Fawcett Majors, too.

Your surgery will be the day before I leave for Tribeca, so I'll be looking for an update about how you're doing when I return.

Thanks Yeux. If I do end up looking like FFM the first thing I'll do is change that hair style!!

Have a wonderful time at Tribeca - you'll probably see Elijah!! Can't wait to hear about it:)

Oh, these are such great screencaps! These were from the FotR Limited Edition? They came out so well.

The best ofluck on your surgery, Not Alone. And the recovery process, too. You sound like a surgery veteran!

Thanks Mechtild - yes they are from the Limited Edition.

I am a surgery veteran - but so far only of hips. A knee op will be a whole new experience!!

Thanks for this, I really enjoyed seeing the pics again and reading the captions :)

Collectormania... ah, memories, sweet memories!

Hope all goes well for your knee op - didn't realise you were already well on the way to being *Bionic Woman* ;D

Many thanks Jane. I've been thinking about Collectormania recently and feeling really nostalgic - I remember how Elijah was bubbling over with the excitement of it all - ah, those were the days!!

Oh yes - the bionic woman has nothing on me:) *hugs*

Your journal is so great !!!! Thank you for doing such a good job ! All this makes me a bit sad...it reminds me that it's been a REALLY long time since the Fellowship of the Rings came out in theaters...I miss this time sooo much. I wish I could go back to the time where I knew nothing avout LOTR and Elijah, when all his carreer was something new for me. Now I just know everything there is to know about him and I just have to wait for things new ! Oh well...I'm sure you guys are just like me so you understand !
Thanks again and I wait forward for Chapter 7 !!!!! :)

Many thanks - I'm so glad you're enjoying 'Journey'. I feel exactly the same as you, I wish that somehow the making of these films could have gone on forever - a new film every year!! At least working on this project gives me a way to relive that time - hope it won't be too long before I'm able to post Chapter 7:)

Oh, wonderful -- more pics! Thanks so much for these. There's something kind of surreal about hobbits & traffic cones together in the same pic, isn't there! ;-)

I wish you good luck with the knee op! I just wanted to say that *if* you're going to be in hospital for quite a long time, and *if* you get bored & have an internet connection & e-mail me, and *if* it's not that far from me & RL doesn't interfere, I could maybe visit you & bring along ... erm, something LOTR-related though I'm not sure what! ;-)

There certainly is - and what an odd sight for any passers-by to be met with (although I suppose round Wellington they were getting used to it!!).

I went for a pre-admission appointment at the hospital yesterday and they told me I'd been booked in for 7 days. It would only be longer than that if they felt I wasn't ready to come out for some reason. I so hope I will be ready - I doubt very much that I will get to see the internet during that time and I will be gasping for Elijah info!! It's very nice of you to think about coming to see me - it would be great to see someone from my 'other life' while I'm there - but hopefully it will only be a week - should it turn out to be longer and I do somehow manage to get access to email I will certainly get in touch. Many thanks:)
