Not only does Geoffrey Chaucer have a blog, but he is now selling tee shirts, and I may succumb to temptation on this one. Or this one, or this one, or well... decisions, decisions. But I must have one!
In March, I posted this excerpt from an entry and think several of these would make great tee shirts. Especially this one:
Oh newfanglenesse! Y have learned the privitees of the manye abbreviaciouns ywritten on the internette.
OMG: "oh mine ++DOMINUS++".
ROFL: "rollinge on the floore laughinge".
IRL: "in reale lyfe."
From the garden to a vase.
There is a new Lincoln Rhymes novel out called Cold Moon that I must begin checking the library for. I've enjoyed Jeffrey Deaver's series and look forward to this one.
The library called and two of the books I asked for on inter-library loan are in... the Gwen Marston book on liberated quilting and Kingsolver's Small Wonders.
I'm a little more than half way through May and Amy and am enjoying it very much: Victorian period, Burne-Jones the Pre-Raphaelite painter, May Gaskell and her family, with guest appearances by Gladstone, Kipling, William Morris and other famous Victorians. Non-fiction, the book depends largely on letters written during the lifetime of May Gaskell and is accompanied by wonderful family photographs and funny drawings that Burne-Jones included with his letters.
Today I got hung up in traffic returning to work from Tai Chi in the park as the movie people were shooting downtown again. I've yet to spot a star, but find all of the equipment, trucks, and crew pretty interesting. May as well enjoy it as you are simply waiting for them to let the traffic flow again.
