iCicero

(no subject)

I kept meaning to post this update all week, but whenever I sat down to review the last two eps of Rome I'd seen, I couldn't think of anything. And you know it's dire when you get writer's block when attempting to write a simple blog entry that's mostly tv show squee.

Hopefully the worst of the early semester rush period is over. I want to go back to uni and, you know, work on my thesis. I did manage to get to Borders yesterday though, while there was a discount sale for students and picked up 'Constantine and Eusebius' by Timothy D. Barnes. It's a book I wouldn't buy for retail, but with a 20% discount it was worth it. Might be able to use it in the thesis, though I'm more keen on reading it for leisure, strangely enough, since Constantine doesn't feature that much in my study (though Eusebius does, since he wrote Historia Ecclesiastica, one of the more complete early church histories).

I got tickets to Persepolis for next Friday night with Amy too (it's showing here as part of the film festival), which I'm very excited about. I've read both parts of Marjane Satrapi's memoir and really enjoyed them, so I can't wait to see how it translates to film.
