Thread of Today VI

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Today I managed to get some holiday gift-shopping done - at my favorite store in the world, Barnes & Noble.

It's Christmas Day!

Postby prmiller » Tue Dec 25, 2018 3:19 am

Then Scrooge looked out, and shouted,
"What day is this, my boy?"
And what Scrooge heard enthralled him,
and wrapped his heart in joy.
"It's Christmas Day!" Like trumpets,
the eager lad called back.
Then in that moment, wonder,
revealed there was no lack,
no dimming of the power
of heaven to restore
a heart turned hard, but able,
to change its state once more.
Oh, glory! Glory! Glory!
That I, like Scrooge have found,
my heart made warm and winsome,
when ice lay all around.
I shall keep Christmas always,
and cherish it each day,
to live with eager kindness,
to bless folks on my way.

Merriest of Christmases to you all!
Parm :)

Today I am popping online to say hi. I hope you all had a peaceful, relaxing Christmas and wishing you all a healthy, happy New Year. Personally, I am looking forward to 2019 - this past year hasn't been the best and I'm hoping that 2019 will bring better things.

Today I am feeling extremely tired, and I literally was so sleepy I ran into the doorframe. :blush:

Also today - I discovered, for the first time in my life, the Annie Lennox song "Use Well The Days" that was written for the RotK end credits but not used. And the way it uses so much of Tolkien's actual writing as the lyrics is just beautiful and touching.

Today I bought my cats a new bed. Wasn't actually expecting either of them to use it, because they're cats. Imagine my surprise when I found Molly curled up like a little shrimp. :D

Today I managed to temporarily distract myself from some unhappy stuff going down by watching March Madness. I'm mostly just rooting for upsets since Maryland is out and UMBC didn't qualify in the first place. Said upsets have failed to materialize more often than not, but I've been able to catch a number of entertaining games so I really can't complain.
