Pinging @AspiringLuddite. Donno if you've heard, but Llewellyn is in NYU Langone and his cancer has progressed to untreatable.

Fuck cancer. Hugs.

Conversations with hubby produce books for me to read. Love that hubby!

Today is a good day to read Irish medieval histories.

Hubby poached eggs this morning. Apparently, there's a Dutch 15th century receipt he's contemplating.

Hubby loves me. Sent me two papers to read - one on irish medieval literature, the other a paper on the Annals.

I'll be in my reading nook for the near future. <3

Cast is gender-swapped....

Heraldry class:
On the Construction of Names of Various Cultures

Gulp. Okay.

Latin translation for the fun at EK Bardic Champs - donno how good my translation was but I made the judges giggle.

So, I wrote....something. Am not sure what I need to do next.

It's a draft article. "Heraldic Art: Why Tattoos are Problematic Source Material"

Now what?

And, after quite some time, I think today is back to trying to write. It might be about tattoos and heraldry, and it might also be trying to wrangle data. We will see what my fingers want to do.

My Peer is trying to get me a paper on Irish charms used in childbirth in the medieval period.

This sounds really INTERESTING. Yes, I am THAT NERD.

So, after FINALLY a night of good sleep.... writing.....

Argh. More coffee.

Sipping yet another cuppa, debating how to parse out data and the wisdom of doing so without much sleep.

Medievalists and Medieval-adjacent. Sort-of.
