It's springtime for Glaukopis!

Firstly, Glaukopis does not like blogger's change that forces her to associate this account with a gmail account. Glaukopis is sorely displeased.

Glaukopis also offers apologies for not updating much lately, but Glaukopis has been busy (and jetlagged last week) since her return to the UK.

Also, it's springtime, and you know what that means? It means Glaukopis' allergies are acting up. Fortunately, they are not generally as bad in this country, because it's not riddled with cherry blossoms the way the D.C. area is. You laugh, but Glaukopis has a cherry blossom tree outside her bedroom window at home. You do the math.

However, despite the fact that Glaukopis is using some Claritin equivalent (so says the pharmacist) here, the pollen allergies are now making her sensitive to books. Usually, her book allergies are only set off by ~200 year old books (as she learned when she wrote a paper on John Quincy Adams), but in SPRINGTIME, Glaukopis is apparently sensitive to books printed with bad quality paper. This means Glaukopis is sniffling in the library and bothering both herself and everyone else. Glaukopis would, of course, be indebted to anyone who could offer a medicine that might work against these accursed allergies. Benadryl is not an option, as it puts Glaukopis to sleep!

Anyway, as a reward for reading through all that whining, Glaukopis presents you with a clip found by a friend of hers--an animated version of the Bayeux Tapestry! Glaukopis bets y'all are jealous you didn't think of this first. Glaukopis sure is.

Poor Glaukopis... glazed and rheumy eyes, not bright at all, except in a feverish pinky sort of way.

So how about a face-mask, Japanese style? Swimming goggles? Plastic sheets to cover the pages? Very mechanical mood here today. A Burqa? Stuffing your nose with cotton-wool doused in whisky?

Sympathetic hugs from Sweden where the pollen metamorphoses into Dementors and sucks your soul from you...

The Blogger Gmail thing is a bit confusing at first - but I find Google Notes makes up for it, and if you can remember to sign in before trying to comment on a blog you're OK. If you don't, the world is probably none the worse off for what it won't see... :-)

Haha! Y'know, it wouldn't even bother me *quite* that much (I mean, I've had allergies all my life, and meds rarely fix all the symptoms), except that I sit in the library sniffling and thinking, "Gods, everyone must hate me right now for making so much noise!" :-P

And I'm really just not fond of forcing people who want to comment to have a gmail account. I had one already myself, but it's rather annoying having to be logged into that also! It smacks of google taking over the world . . . which it is, but sometimes I don't like to be reminded of these things. ;-)

Thanks for posting that video; definitely the best animation I've seen in a long time.

I stumbled across your blog earlier today while I was searching for various epithets for Athena. I'm impressed! I admire and agree with your dogmatic insistence on the importance of learning the classics (as well as the other "great books" of the West). I'm a soon-to-graduate philosophy major and classics minor, and your blog has definitely made my day. Thanks, Glaukopis!
