Thanks to The (Hopeful) Librarian, I was reminded that today is Hobbit Day aka the birthdays of two fellow (albeit fictional) virgos – Bilbo and Frodo Baggins.
It’s no big secret that I love Hobbits or that I am happiest when I am attempting to be one. My favorite Hobbit remains Samwise Gamgee, but I ended up naming my pet mice Merry and Pippin and obviously Sam would be among the first to celebrate Frodo’s birthday so… there you have it.
Thankfully Hobbit activities are very easy for me to pick up without a moment’s notice because, again, I pretty much am a Hobbit. So since I already did the whole good friends, good alcohol, and good food last weekend, I shall be spending a quiet afternoon/evening at home with Wildwood by Colin Meloy and a cup of tea. And possibly my knitting.
Then, in keeping with what I imagine to be Baggins Tradition, tomorrow I will wake up early and go on an adventure sans dwarves, wizards, and dragons but with plenty of YA authors. Huzzah!
