Wouln't it even have been nicer if all Tolkien fanatics toasted at the same time of the day, say at 9.00 PM GMT?

I thought the same thing, but I guess the Society didn't want people chugging beer at 4am in Australia or whatever. I think I have an appointment that night, so I might need to do it earlier or later.

PS. Why did SSA delete her post here about the Professor's birthday being listed in the birthday thread? []

I don't think the Australian bosses would be appreciative of their workers chugging beer at that time of Wednesday, either. []

I could do a toast at 11am Tuesday. [] [that being the time when the UK says hello to JRRT's birthday [] ]

My impression was that the Ozzies drink beer like normal people drink water or milk. Or is this impression wrong?

Today's the day! Happy Birthday, Mr. Tolkien!

I see some other MT members have signed up for the toast.

Oh, do anything you want with it. If you are hosting it, you can decide what to do with it, I think. I was surprised to see you were still doing that - it was several years ago when that first came up, wasn't it?

Back to the topic at hand: 114 years ago was the Professor's birthday. It's rather mind-boggling to think of all the changes since then - as well as all the changes in the collective Western psyche that the Professor was himself responsible for.

Vodka-O is just wodka+orangejuice. And since DK and DE are in the same timezone i figured it wouldn't matter... []
