I have a friend who got through a few trying years by obsessing over Legolas. Not Orlando Bloom, who is cute enough. But Legolas the Elf. In fact our conversations were peppered with 'Not the Elf' and 'sooooNot the Elf'. Until her very special someone came back into her life. Then even the Elf was second best. So as a fond memory of some good times, some bizarre road trips, and a reminder that life does get better, here is a picture of He Who Was a Darn Cute Elf. Happy New Year, Friend.
