Never. And last of all from you!

Quote:
Fear fell upon all who beheld [the Witch-king]; but he singled out the Captain of Gondor for the fullness of his hatred, and with a terrible cry he rode straight upon him. Eärnur would have withstood him; but his horse could not endure that onset...
The Lord Of The Rings, Appendix A: Annals of the Kings and Rulers, (iv) Gondor and the Heirs of Anárion

Hey, I had a birthday to attend! Anyway...

There's a day when no month ever starts. Which one is it?

Friday.

Quote:
It will be noted if one glances at a Shire Calendar, that the only weekday on which no month began was Friday. It thus became a jesting idiom in the Shire to speak of 'on Friday the first' when referring to a day that did not exist, or to a day on which very unlikely events such as the flying of pigs .... might occur.
LotR, Appendix D: Shire Calendar, footnote.

Gimme! Gimme!

What type of verse does Strider cite to the Hobbits--after Samwise asked--when they're heading for Rivendell?

Ann-thennath.

Quote:
'That is a song,' (Strider) said, 'in the mode that is called ann-thennath among the Elves, but is hard to render in our Common Speech, and this is but a rough echo of it.'

Correct again! Here's... Oh, I lost the bell... Well... Let's just pretend I gave it you already.

"I tell you," he said, in an effort to remain loyal to his friends and to keep his end up, "that gold was only an afterthought with us. We came over hill and under hill, by wave and wind, for Revenge. Surely, O Smaug the unassessably wealthy, you must realize that your success has made you some bitter enemies?"
