(As it's still January 3rd here) To the Professor! :cheers:

I hope, wherever he is, that he knows that the world is full of people who love his words, still—not in spite of the films, but not because of them, either. The faithful! :cheers:

Saw this and thought I'd post it anyway as I wouldn't remember it next year!

"I am in fact a Hobbit in all but size. I like gardens, trees, and unmechanized farmlands; I smoke a pipe, and like good plain food (unrefrigerated), but detest French cooking; I like, and even dare to wear in these dull days, ornamental waistcoats. I am fond of mushrooms (out of a field); have a very simple sense of humor (which even my appreciative critics find tiresome); I go to bed late and get up late (when possible). I do not travel much.”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY J.R.R. TOLKIEN - January 03, 1892

Errrrmmmmm. . . . was this meant for the translation game, or is it simply a gnomic utterance?
