Alert: Totally Nerdy Post

Monday, January 3, 2011

Today is J.R.R. Tolkien's birthday. Apparently there is a little tradition to celebrate his birthday by toasting him at 9:00pm (in whatever time zone you're living in). All Tolkien fans are invited to raise a glass and toast his life by simply saying "the professor."

So, being the nerds that we are, we're going to toast the good professor at 9:00pm tonight.

I'll leave you with a Tolkien quote from The Hobbit for your reading enjoyment.
"It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.”
