The Roommate and I just rented a video from the video store like in the olden days.

And it turned out the rental was free because she hadn’t rented anything in a long time. Because it’s 2014 

And the girl at the checkout counter was like “Any reason you haven’t been in here in a while?”

And we were both like “Uh…”

Because again, it’s 2014.

But then she looked so perky and clueless that it got really awkward. It was as if we were kind of afraid to tell her that the internet exists?

Like, I’m so sorry I have to be the one to break it to you, Video Store Girl, but there’s this thing called Netflix and… Yeah.

Maybe don’t count on a long and storied career in the lending people physical copies of media industry.

The Seven Daily Hobbit Meals -

Elevenses is apparently an actual thing in the UK and Ireland. It’s described as being like afternoon tea, but in the morning. A little less savory than brunch, served at 11:00 with coffee or tea.

As for the Middle Earth elevenses, I’m assuming the food served is similar. But it’s one…

The Roommate and I insist this leaves off one of the most important meals: the one you eat around 2 a.m. when you’re drunk.

You KNOW Hobbits have that one.

Drunksies?

Idk if anyone cares or not but I found this great website that lists over 5000 historical novels by time and place
