How could I have forgotten to note Tolkien's eleventy-first birthday today, when I had particularly mentioned Two Towers below?

Only three days left of my holiday. Then it is back to the grand concerns of the information industry. Next year, I must remember to take the week off *after* New Year's Day. That way, I'll have a real set of days during which to relax. What with Christmas, wrapping presents, blockbuster movies (like Nemesis and Two Towers), New Year's Eve, the boys' schedules of parties and other fun stuff -- I didn't feel like I could sit and veg until yesterday.

However, we did buy the DVD player on New Year's Day. Pat immediately sat down and watched 1776 which he'd gotten from Rich as a gift.
