*Sings Happy Birthday at the top of her lungs*

Seeing as I'm currently staying at someone else's house, I need to keep this post short. 

First thing's first. 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JOHN RONALD REUEL TOLKIEN!!!!!!


Today would be his 121st birthday. Tolkien fans unite and celebrate! I mean, without him we wouldn't have these books:


Or these movies



Be grateful.

FIVE RANDOM FACTS

1.) I know what Quadrotriticale is. 


2.) The word 'Whovian' has been officially added to the Oxford English Dictionary!!!!!



Huzzah!

3.) When I was little there was a massive cardboard/poster/thing at the grocery store. I was dead certain that it was the devil. It terrified me to the point where I didn't go to the store until it was gone. 


4.) Amy and Rory Pond are my favorite companions. 


5.) I am going to SOOOOOOOOOOOOOBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB when they have to go. 

AND SOB AND SOB AND SOB!!!!!

Cheers!

  1. Happy Birthday, Tolkien and thank you!!!!

    (As for Amy and Rory, out of all the companions so far, they get the best ending I believe. It is slightly sad, but also sweet. In other words, maybe slightly less bawling then Dooms Day.)

    1. Oh, really? Oh good. Because I've seen some pictures and I was getting pretty afraid for them. :) As long as they don't die.... or get trapped in a parallel universe, I think I'll be okay. Hopefully. I'm still going to cry though. ;)

  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY J.R.R.TOLKIEN! *runs around with a balloon and joins in with Treskie's singing* As I have recently come to love your books, your birthday is going to be celebrated most profusely. Hmm, I need to do a post on this, I think! (:

    1. Hehehe. S'true about the memes too. :) Um... between you and me and don't tell anyone, I've only read The Hobbit and Farmer Giles of Ham. Tolkien's style is very High Fantasy, and I REALLY need to be in the mood for it, or I just know I won't enjoy it. :)

      lol.. Rory and Amy... I just love how they're MARRIED and not simply boyfriend and girlfriend. They're such a cute couple. :D

  5. BAWHAHAHAHAHA! Your reaction to Howl is much the same as mine. I didn't think I'd quite fancied him that much till I went for a walk and couldn't stop thinking about him and realized I'd fallen for his charm. HOW CAN ONE NOT?! I thought all the girls he went to visit were being silly, till it happened to me. *Smirk* I loved the aunts too who would come and pound on his door 8-D I laughed when I realized where the rumors of him eating girl's hearts had come from.
