Who knew you could be a Tolkien scholar? If I had known, I could have spent my career reading and re-reading Lord of the Rings and writing about it. As it is, I had to stop after 6 times.
Here is an interview with a Tolkien scholar at the University of Vermont. What a life! Live in beautiful Vermont and study and teach Tolkien. Instead, I am in an office in the basement of a public hospital, next to the morgue, waiting to see if my contract will be renewed. If not, I may move to Vermont and study under this guy.
