Shiver me timbers!

Happy birthday to delenn1960! May you have a wonderful day and year to come.

And to everyone: happy Talk Like a Pirate Day! Arrr.

In other news, Michael Drout has a terrific post here about the announcement that HarperCollins is going to be publishing J.R.R. Tolkien's Children of Húrin as a stand-alone volume next year. (Incidentally, "Of Túrin Turambar" is my favorite story in The Silmarillion.)

Thereat Glaurung stirred for the last time ere he died, and he spoke with his last breath saying, 'Hail, Nienor, daughter of Húrin. We meet again ere the end. I give thee joy that thou hast found thy brother at last. And now thou shalt know him: a stabber in the dark, treacherous to foes, faithless to friends, and a curse upon his kin, Túrin son of Húrin! But the worst of all his deeds thou shalt feel in thyself.'
- J.R.R. Tolkien, "Of Túrin Turambar"

Thank you very much, dear Eldritchhobbit, for your good wishes!!! This evening I'll go with my husband for a delicious dinner in a nice Italian restaurant. I love pasta *yummy* ;o))

Brilliant!!! I adore the skull-and-crossbones "Pirate" one. I may have to adopt that, if it's okay. :) Thank you!
