Fishy Circumstances

The third ring circus

From a BBC article on the opening of the third Lord of the Rings movie props exhibit:
"The exhibition culminates with a face-to-face encounter with the central icon from the films - the One Ring itself."

In contrast, when the first exhibit was shown in Toronto, the One Ring was placed inauspiciously, in a case full of other random Hobbit hole goods and heirlooms. This time around, the show won't be making a stop in Toronto - Boston will be as close as it gets.

Library goodies

The library book I checked out today came with a bonus "One ring to rule them all" temporary tattoo in Elvish. Not many books come with bonus gifts - let alone library ones.
