Brendan and I spent two hours discussing day trips out to Pompeii/Herculaneum/Naples. I'm rather settled on GuestinItaly.com, as it's cheap and they're also going out to Tivoli as well. I swear, we've looked at least one slide of Hadrian's villa every week in Art and Architecture. I'm desperate to see the real deal now!
The Pompey paper crawls along at a slow pace. Marcel's expectations of what he would deem a good essay are proving to be a bit constraining. The good news is, it seems like no one else is doing this paper, as the essay's due in two weeks and no one's requested the books I have out (which is an extremely odd occurrence).
I swear, all these boring entries are going to be entirely made up for by my Rome trip. ;p
