Vox Audita Perrit, Literra Scripta Manet....
The heard word is lost, the written letter remains...
Might be of interest to HP fans...
The Black Family tree, as drawn by JK Rowling.

Or at least, part of it. But I do spy a Crouch, a Longbottom, a Bulstrode and a Potter on there. Fanficcers will have a field day with that, I'm sure. :)

Two days of book selling at Ithaca so far. I'm three quarters of the way through the Cicero biography, which is fantastic. Everitt's offering a very concise and comprehensive portrait of Cicero as a orator, statesman and philosopher. If the writing wasn't so prosaic, it'd probably be a good text to use as a secondary resource for a research essay.

I saw an IT student at Ithaca today with an 'O RLY?' shirt on. It made me smile. Internet fandom can be so funny, albeit in a stupid way. Otherwise, not a lot to report work-wise. I've been staring at the screen for five minutes actually wracking my brain for something interesting to mention. And I'm coming up blank. So I hope that you are all having a more exciting week than I am!

And so to bed, since I have a 6:30 start tomorrow and don't nod off at work (Which happened three times today. Yikes.).

Current Mood: calm calm
Current Music: The Bedroom Philosopher- I'm so postmodern

I actually loathe that "There are many stories between the lines", it smacks of a careless dog owner throwing a withered old bone to her faithful friend and expecting the mutt to leap upon it with avidity. If we fic, we fic because of *character* and *situation*, and a few names on a family tree is not sufficient incentive to create characters and situations. Must try harder, JKR. *grr*
