I'm still in Victorian London - it's 1850 now, and funnily enough it's November, and very foggy.

I'm in 1950s rural England, in my old family home, and I've just found a body in the cucumber patch.

Not sure if that's better or worse than looking under the gooseberry bush! :D

I am at Dartford Priory and hunting for a precious relic during the dissolution of the monasteries, and I'm in deep trouble.

New York, 1860. At a ball in honor of the Prince Albert Edward. Even got an introduction, but he must dance with the matrons instead of me.
At home with a good book and the cat...

In Bag End. Meeting a fellow named Gandalf, and some Dwarves.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Yeah, but they were nice enough to do the dishes.

Only because Gandalf was there, I bet. That's the only reason Merry and Pippin did the dishes at Bilbo's birthday party in the first movie. ;)
