Hobbit Forming

"I am in fact a hobbit in all but size. I like gardens, trees, unmechanized farm lands, I smoke a pipe and like good, plain food -- unrefrigerated -- but I detest French cooking. I like -- and even dare to wear in these dull days --ornamental waistcoats. I'm fond of mushrooms out of a field, have a very simple sense of humor (which even my most appreciate critics find tiresome). I go to bed late, and get up late, when possible."

- J.R.R. Tolkein, who was born this day in 1892
