Not dead (yet).
Frankly, I'm swamped in another Latin Exam of Doom and a paper (that's not really "of doom," but it is yet another thing to have done) and work yesterday on top of not feeling so great this weekend.
Normal activity should resume Monday or Tuesday afternoon.
I shall, however, leave you with an article snurched from rogueclassicism on HBO's Rome. I have hopes that this will be better than The Empire. I don't have cable, but I have a wonderful friend who will be taping this for me. So I should have a review, but there will be a lag time.
Oh, and Sarah Pomeroy is my current favourite person. Just because. Everyone should read her Spartan Women book. I should reread that too (well, when I have time. Medea knows when that will be).
