Morning Medieval Miscellany

I have never had as much attention paid to my birthday in my adult life as I got this year. Are people just happy to see me getting closer to the grave?

While we all await the embrace of death, why don't we fill our days with wine, women, and a world of medievalism?
Heavenfield points us to Senchus, a newish blog on early medieval Scotland. Update RSS feeds and blogrolls accordingly!

    Ooh, Senchus is a find, thankyou. Very much my sort of thing; if I could write that clearly and briefly, I would, and my blog would be much the better for it. Thankyou also for the link to my latest wordspill however...

  2. Happy (belated now?) berfday!!!

  3. I fear I'm late too....Happy Birthday....thing is, Scott, the closer you get to the grave indicates that I'm closer yet, being a step ahead and all! So do me the favor of stopping this aging thing.

  4. Larry,

    As the Anglo-Saxons might have said, "We're not getting eald, we're getting frod!"

    And as a little bonus to my Old English students, anyone who brings me a sheet of paper explaining what the above sentence means will be given an automatic pass on our vocabulary quiz tomorrow (Thursday)!

  5. So, anyone get the pass?

  6. Yes! Four students! Now, of course, I have to think up other Easter eggs to place around the internet.
