I feel like I should clarify... my birthday is always going to be December 5th. However, in the northern hemisphere, December is always in winter, and in the southern hemisphere, December is summer. Always. Hopefully my extraordinary powers of weather control will extend to Australia.
Yes, I met a hobbit. Okay, so he might not have actually been a hobbit, but he was short with curly hair and a hobbity face. He told me that even his friends back in Germany called him a hobbit. I also got a photo with Gollum.

I'll pick up a kookaburra for you when I'm in Australia. We don't have them in NZ.
Xena is very much around. I don't know if she's actually living here or in the States, but she's doing all sorts of "stop climate change" commercials with Greenpeace. Sign On to reduce greenhouse emissions by 2020.
