Obviously I’ve been running on some kind of deficit: I was out cold for 15 hours last night.

In other news, within about 20 minutes of each other, I ran into two American bloggers yesterday at the BL: Scott and Meg. Add that to the list of advantages of having a Flickr account and relatively unusual hair.

Sundays are my only days off–the other days you’ll find me hunched over a desk in the library, reading at breakneck speed, ruining my back–which means laundry and some sightseeing. Unfortunately for me, Westminster Abbey and Wesley’s Chapel are not open for such shenanigans on Sundays. I’d like to see the stained glass window at W.A. commemorating eighteenth-century novelist Frances (Fanny) Burney, but that will have to wait for another trip. Maybe I’ll head to the Tate Modern, instead.

I’ll meet Meg for a beer later this afternoon.

just a few life/blogging notes

  1. Barring unforeseen circumstances, it looks like we’ve found a place to live in the city to which we will be moving in August. Close to the university, 60% of our current rent, a house in a subdivision. I have never lived in the suburbs before. No, really.
  2. I’ve added a list in my sidebar called “This week’s 10.” It’s a list of blogs I intend to visit and comment upon relatively regularly for a week through web browsing (rather than an RSS feed). Someone–I’ve forgotten who now–suggested doing this in a recent blog entry.
  3. I’m going to paint myself into a blogging corner with promises of two forthcoming posts:
    1. A post on working in the archives.
    2. A post in response to Scott Eric Kaufman’s on teaching literature and history.

Off to the library…

World of Whiskeys

I’ve uploaded a bunch of my pix from last year’s trip to England and France. I think I’m going to go ahead and get a pro Flickr account ($24.95/year) because I’ve already exceeded my month’s allotment of free bandwidth, and I’m inclined to take a lot more pictures if there’s an easy way to share them online with others.

I bought a bottle of 18-year-old single malt Scotch in this shop at one of the London airports (Gatwick, I think, although I also used Heathrow).

I am still in love with Flickr, by the way.

thanks for not being a zombie

Inspired by Jill, I’ve created a feed that comines my blog entries with my Flickr pix and my links. Alternately, you can subscribe to my Flickr photos as an RSS 2.0 feed or an Atom feed
