I used to hang out by the food table at PARTIES because you don’t have to talk to anybody. If you do then you can talk about the food. Jennifer Jason Leigh.

The Evening Star goes down across the camp, among the white gum trees …
Far away, in these places near Milingimbi
Goes down among the Ngurulwulu people, towards the camp and the gum trees,
At the place of the Crocodiles, and of the Evening Star, away towards Milingimbi …
The Evening Star is going down, the Lotus Flower is on its stalk …
Going down among all those western clans …
It brushes the heads of the uncircumcised people …
Sinking down in the sky, that Evening Star, the Lotus …
Shining down on the foreheads of all those Sandfly people …
It sinks there into the place of the white gum trees, at Milingimbi.
Sung by the Wonguri-Mandjigai people, translated by Ronald M. Bernd

Chip the glasses and crack the plates!
Blunt the knives and bend the forks!
That’s what Bilbo hates –
Smash the bottles and burn the corks!
Cut the cloth and tread on the fat!
Pour the milk on the pantry floor!
Leave the bones on the bedroom mat!
Splash the wine on every door!
Dump the crocks in a boiling bowl;
Pound them up with a thumping pole;
And when you’ve finished, if any are whole,
Send them down the hall to roll!
That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!
So, carefully! carefully! with the plates!
THE HOBBIT. JRR TOLKIEN.
