[cancer|movies] Mortality

I still don't have that larger post about mortality drafted, but it is coming. However, for an example of just how petty the human mind can be, one thing that's been bugging me the past few days is the notion that it's somewhat possible I won't live long enough to see both installments of The Hobbit movie. And that pisses me off.

Really, brain? This is what you find to regret about having cancer? That you might not be alive in December, 2013 to see part 2 of The Hobbit?
