So we're coming down the other side of the hump this week. The Ring has been delivered to Mordor. All is well. Time to just get back to the Shire... maybe those eagles who appear in the most convenient situations can help us get to the weekend faster so we can more quickly enjoy "La Cucaracha."

But what's that? Another winged creature of Sauron comes!

Dammit! Why couldn't we have destroyed their habitats a little faster? Crafty little devils want Apocalyptic Revelry all to themselves!

Well don't fret! It's nearly here! And to tide you over, here's another tidbit to tease ya.
