Happy birthday, J.R.R. Tolkien!

The legendary English writer, poet, linguist, and Oxford university professor, best known as the creator of Middle Earth and the author of many books about its inhabitants—including the The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion—was born 121 years ago today in Bloemfontein, South Africa. Incidentally, today is also my sister’s birthday, but she’s not nearly as famous.
