Morning Medieval Miscellany

I've had lots to write of late, but no chance to do it. Tonight I'm scheduled to be on the Geekerati radio program (where we'll be talking about Christmas fantasy) and I'm supposed to be writing the keynote address for the Areopagus Lectures in Orlando this February, so I've got lots of things flitting about my head, pestering to be blogged about.

The good news is that I haven't written much lately because I was getting my computer upgraded. The bad news is that the sound doesn't work on it now, so that's what I've been doing with all my free time -- loading applications, patching applications, and trying to get the sound working.

  4. I'm pea green with envy of Elaine Treharne! Izzard is brilliant and a wonderfully thoughtful about language and its flexibilities. Cake or death? I'll take cake (Frisian or Anglo-Saxon)!
