How I feel about it all: energetichobbity
Soundtrack: Led Zeppelin - The Battle of Evermore
The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

On January 3rd Tolkien fans around the world are invited to raise a glass and toast the birthday of this much loved author at 21:00 (9 pm) your local time.

The toast is "The Professor".

For those unfamiliar with British toast-drinking ceremonies: To make the Birthday Toast, you stand, raise a glass of your choice of drink (not necessarily alcoholic), and say the words 'The Professor' before taking a sip (or swig, if that's more appropriate for your drink). Sit and enjoy the rest of your drink.

More info here.

Thanks to rakshi and pegkerr, among others. *cheers*

And hey, if you missed the toast? Toast anyway, whenever. He's worth it. *g*

So toasted, with a nice glass of white Bordeaux: "The Professor!" Cheers! :)

I have Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut. And I wish very much that you lived closer, devotchka. We really, really need to plan a Meetup.

*admires really really slashy M/K icon* Agent Mulder is looking rugged and tasty there, and I'm not usually a big Duchovny kinda chick.

Yes, we do definitely need to plan a meetup. *adds to list of IMPORTANT THINGS THAT MUST BE DONE after comps are finished* (First one's Monday! Wish me luck!)

I cannot believe I don't have a booze icon.
