Ode to Sir Ian McKellan!

Today’s the birthday of a most esteemed gentleman!  Link to pictures: http://kiltsandlollies.livejournal.com/856922.html#cutid1

Sir Ian McKellan’s Birthday Shall Not Pass!

 

Today SHALL NOT PASS!

without raising a glass

to Sir Ian the Gray.

It’s Gandalf’s birthday!

 

Balrogs and hijnks shall go down-

Find a hobbit to buy the next round!

This knight errant we can’t overrate.

Let everyone go in awe and celebrate!

 

Today will be good-I can tell

If Ian grins it’s even Friday in Hell.

So think of the man and know good cheer,

for Sir Ian’s a marvel.  McKellan! Hear, hear!

 

(And if the party should go overnight

we’ll just call it for Ian the White!)

 

Incidentally, today is also International Geek Day.  Apparently it was chosen for the first premiere of Star Wars, but I hereby declare that it is today to coincide with this famous wizard’s birthday (and I mean that in both the Tolkeinesque and McKellan-is-an-acting-wizard ways).
