Tolkien Thursdays

I’ve been doing something for a while now, and I was completely unconscious of it until this morning.  Every Sunday I post the next chapter in the Middle-Earth quest for my Silmarillion Blues project.  You’d think I’d start reading the next chapter on Sunday or even Monday.  Nope.  It always ends up being Thursday.  The morning commute is spent listening to the tunes of The Tolkien Ensemble to put me in the zone, then I spend the morning over coffee reading the chapter and breezing through a first draft of the post for Sunday.  During lunch I do some reworking, then I’ll finalize it sometime Thursday evening.  I’m not sure how this turned out this way.  It’s like I’m useless on Fridays, and Saturday is almost always a random thing, so it’s Thursday or nothing.

This morning, after The Hobbit and the first five books of The Lord of the Rings, I finally realized it.  As Sherlock Holmes would say, I see but I do not observe.  Today of all days I observed, and I find it infinitely amusing for no reason whatsoever.

    • The week’s a mixed bag, but I’m taking the moments where I can. The good ones have been really good. I’ve got more blog-worthy stuff today on that front, but I have to wait till later so I can do this up right.

      • Good. This week has been really busy with stuff. Not all bad, not all exciting, but all exhausting. However, I look forward to catching up on your posts when I get home.

        Btw, tonight’s coin toss:

        – Heads: Tosca
        – Tails: Don Giovanni

        • I’ll look forward to writing some posts. lol. I thought I’d get to do so last night, but not so much. I remembered I had the season finale of Vikings to watch, and then the cliffhanger spurred me down some research rabbit hole, and… yeah.

          Hard to beat that combo. You win either way!
