Well I'll raise a glass of Champagne to the man who has brought hours and days and weeks and months, even years of discussions to our ears.

He is truly a great man. And I respect him in the utmost way.

COME ON EVERYONE!!

You have ten minutes to find something to toast the Prof with! When the time comes, stand on a chair, raise your glass, then say "To the Professor", and drain your glass.

Happy Birthday Dear Professor!

I looked on the Tolkien Society's page. It's at 9pm GMT.

Yup, thanks for the correct time, Tal... luckily I went back and checked the page before it was time. I felt rather stupid standing outside with my coke in a champagne glass declaring "The Professor!" But then again, I'm a geek...

Darn. I'm late. :(

Oh well! To JRR Tolkien! May his books always give us geeks something to do! *Rosie stands, spills her glass of chocoate milk, runs to get another glass and drinks it all in one gulp* To Tolkien! :D

It's probably a good thing my mom and sister were out when it was time. I was probably an odd sight to see standing on my comp chair with a glass of milk toasting a dead guy....:D
