Random bits and pieces
Ahh, Libby gave me the login and password for the Tacitus course notes. Woot! Something else to pass the time at Ithaca.

Honestly wish there was more exciting news to report, other from the fact that Manchild is going to be on UKTV in about a week (Ahhh, Nigel Havers and Anthony Stewart Head) and House is back on this week (Ahh, Hugh Laurie).

When I am working at Ithaca, the mundane and boring becomes wonderful and amazing. Possibly because I'm dealing with people who can't see the book shop signs/books everywhere around my desk and STILL ask 'Is this the bookshop?' *facepalm*

At some point in the near future, I really need to learn Italian as well. Or at least, enough of it to get around Italy. I should go to Borders before Lent begins and pick up a tape/book set. If only they weren't so expensive. *grumbles* At least, there's an itinerary emerging out of my discussions with Brendan. Currently, we're going to Rome, Assisi, Naples, Tivoli and Florence. Which is probably all that could be squeezed into two weeks. Damn not being able to go up north to Venice or Possagno. Still....any excuse to travel back is a good one!

Don't try to do too much - but make sure you enjoy every second of it!
