September 22, 2014: So I haven’t read the Lord of the Rings books (and please, don’t recommend that I do; there’s no interest there), which means I had no idea that Hobbit Day is the shared birthday of both Frodo Baggins and Bilbo Baggins, 78 years apart. Please visit the link if you want to know more information; I got a little snoozy while researching.
On the side of enjoyable things, it’s Ice Cream Cone Day today! Celebrating not the frosty treat, but the delightful baked good that holds it. I’ve seen that they make gluten-free ice cream cones, but I’ve yet to try one. I’m just happy that they’re the cakey kind, and not that bitter, crumbly “sugar cone” style.
