>Edited to add a query to the internets: If you had to choose between MA programs in Medieval (or Medieval and Renaissance) Studies at the Universities of Leeds, York, and Durham, which would *you* choose? (Obviously this a question for the medievalists — all disciplines.)
Woah. I really didn’t mean to go silent for a week and a half there. (Random note: I typed “hlaf” for “half” at first, which amused me, as that would me “a week and a *loaf*” in Old English.)
Since we’ve been back from our Turkey Day weekend road trip, I’ve been running around like an acephalous farm fowl, but without any real reason for feeling so busy, at least not that I can think of at the moment. Hm. How does that happen?
The trip, by the way, gave me lots of food for thought about the zombification of the past, which, if I can find the time and space, I hope to write about. It also presented me with yet another Jesus, Son of Godzilla — or maybe it’s the same one and I just forgot which interstate highway it was on — and I have things to say about that, too. I don’t which is weirder, it or
Jesusland Jerusalem in Orlando.
But now, a quick little story of academic happy happy joy joy. One of my favorite former students in the whole wide world just got word that she got into all three UK medieval studies MA programs for which she applied, and she forwarded the comments of one of the program directors to me. They’re *very* impressed with her. She thinks it’s all because of me, but really, she was fabulous all on her own. Anyway, I’m so very excited for her! I love it when good and exciting things happen for my students.
