Vox Audita Perrit, Literra Scripta Manet....
The heard word is lost, the written letter remains...
Our plane leaves around midday tomorrow, I think. I'm just excited about going to Melbourne. Whee! Going to buy Steven's birthday present while I'm down there...going to find a really good book on the Habsburgs. Even have Borders voucher to spend!

Should be reading Name of the Rose. Reading Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason instead. How is that? You want to read new stuff all the time, and yet you end up reading books that you've read about a hundred times before, eg. the following in my case:

The War of the Worlds by H.G. Welles
The Troublesome Offspring of Cardinal Guzman by Louis De Bernieres
the aforementioned Bridget Jones books by Helen Fielding
Fortune's Rocks by Anita Shreve
George Pell's biography by Tess Livingston
The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy

I really should read more this year. If I have the time....bleh, have they come out with those translations of the Harry Potter books in Latin yet? Those could prove useful for my studies this year.

Ah, anyway. This is rambling at its finest. *clicks the update button*

Name of the Rose is really surprisingly good. Speaking as someone who only read initiated reading it because a) it’s a work of Literature and probably good for me and b) it had a pretty title, I found it really enjoyable. Hard to get into, but fairly cool besides that. Plus, very cool library. Anyone can be excused for reading The Scarlet Pimpernel over and over. (Oh, Percy, you crazy secret agent man.) And Isaac Asimov is lord and master of all he surveys so do not doubt him. Read I, Robot now, now I say.

Geekity geek geek. I’m done.
