Back in DM, I was indoors feeling vaguely productive. I've finished the Gothic, Romanesque, and pre-Renaissance bibliographies, plus some highlights of the Renaissance one, since it went on for too many columns to bother doing properly. Who knows, I may someday regret not doing so, but I doubt it. I have an article I specifically want to read tomorrow, something my parents have a copy of. I located my copy of David McCauley's The Way Things Work which I kepts coveting while TAing in the past year or two. It not necessarily as informative as I remembered it being, but it's informative enough I may bother lugging it back to Toronto. At some point in the next week or so I should do a little Latin review. I have no intention of being able to pass the PhD exam this fall, but it would be embarassing to do so poorly that it looks as if I should be back in MA latin despite having passed it already.
I haven't been skating again yet since my fall, but my knee is healing nicely so it's probably safe to go out again. That and my cold is basically gone, give or take a few sniffles, so if it was an inner ear imbalance (as haggisthesecond thought possible, and may indeed have been) then hopefully that's been resolved as well.
I have a party to host this weekend and am wondering if ice cream sundaes would be a feasible thing to have for it. C. thinks it would be too messy and melty. If I only had one tub of ice cream out at a time though, and left all the supplies in the kitchen it might be okay. Then again, it could be disastrous if it was dropped inopportunely on anything and (sadly) we do have a white couch. (It was cheap and comfortable.)
