Eleventy one

Filed under:General — eric @ 3:21 am

Today, JRR Tolkien would have turned Eleventy One. For the Tolkien Society, today is a long awaited party. It is the society’s tradition to toast Tolkien on this day every year, at 9pm, by raising a glass and saying “The professor.”

I’ll make sure I have a full glass handy when 9pm rolls around.

UPDATE: Looking back at an entry from a year ago today, it looks like someone forgot to remind me to have a blow-out party at my place today. Too bad, really, because I could use a good party.
