While doing a little research on JRR Tolkien for a recent post - even though I didn't notice I was off by more than two weeks regarding his birthday - I came across a note that The Hobbit is going to be coming to theatres in Christmas season of 2011 and 2012! The movie will be in two parts, which means I will have two Christmas gifts to look forward to.

Cate Blanchett, who was luminous as Galadriel in Peter Jackson's trilogy, the Lord of the Rings, will be back to reprise her role, as will Hugo Weaving as Arwen's father, Elrond, and Ian McKellen as Gandalf the Grey. Filming is scheduled to start in March/April of this year. Who will star as Bilbo Baggins is yet to be seen, but Tobey Maquire is one of the names being mentioned. He'll have to add some girth to his Spider-Man physique to pass for a meal-loving (second breakfast, anyone), homebody Hobbit.

Guillermo del Toro, director of Pan's Labyrinth, which received glowing reviews from Catholic film critics for its religious themes, will be directing the film. Peter Jackson, of course, will be involved, too. He is executive producer and a co-writer. Hopefully, he'll be smart and use much of the dialogue that Tolkien wrote, and not stray too far from the wonderful story.

My sister and I had talked about using frequent flier miles to go to New Zealand, but that won't be for quite some time, so there's no chance of me being an extra elf - or orc.

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew.
