Gone fishing–if by “fishing” you mean “working.”

Posted under: fluff, jobs

Good morning, friends!  Well, I’m off again on another “working vacation”–in which I work, and the rest of my family gets the vacation!  Oh well–someone’s got to catch the big fish around here, right?  (That’s us above–Dr. Mister Historiann, Historiann, and all of the mini-storianns, if in fact they exist.  To tell the truth, Dr. Mister is the real fisherman–I don’t have the patience for the sport, and he’ll readily agree with my self-assessment.)

I’ve got some research to do at the imposing-sounding Library of Michigan, meetups with other bloggers planned, and get-togethers with old friends, so it won’t be all work and absolutely no play.  The big news is that there’s a brand-new wifi connection where I’m staying, so you won’t have to go a single day without my sharing whatever new fresh hell I can find for us all to chew over.

Speaking of meetups with other bloggers–I had the opportunity to meet Another Damned Medievalist this week, the proprietor of Blogenspiel, who was recently in town for the AP history grade-a-thon they hold annually at Baa Ram U.  I heard all of the fascinating details about her current research and summer plans–jealous, aren’t you?  And I hope to meet Dr. Crazy and to see GayProf again–I hope his cocktail shaker is full, frosty, and ready to serve.  We’ve got a lot to talk about–and we may be cooking up something special for all of you!  Stay tuned kittens, and stay cool–I hear it’s supposed to stop raining soon, somewhere in North America…

    Happy travels, to you and la famille Historiann! It’s now a sunny afternoon in London…

    Susan — how long are you there? I’ll be arriving on Wednesday… FB me!

    And Historiann — it was a blast! Thanks so much. Makes me want to do the reading again, knowing there are such great folks at BaaRam U

    Rain said to be clearing here later this week. We’re installing wifi, stocking the nearby river, and we even have a bronzed tortoise in the pocket park down the street, if you can swing this way on your way back.

    Who knew so many of Historiann’s readers are in London? Though Susan, what part are you in? I’ve seen little sun the past few days! Historiann, have fun in Michigan. I am on the same “vacation” with the family, except I only have Sundays off. bon voyage!

    I’ll be in London in about two weeks…

    You all should have a meetup–say, at the base of Lord Nelson’s statue in Trafalgar Square. (There won’t be a lot of people there in July!) Squadrato can wear her wig, and the rest of you can find each other that way.

    I’ll be in London in about three weeks. It’s never rained much at all during my multiple trips to England, so this will be a big test. I have to say, a lifetime ticket for me would have been a whole lot cheaper than that translucent dome they’ve constructed down at Wimbledon.

    Well, I’m here until early August so would be happy to sponsor a Historiann Fan Club!

    Haha, I’m in London too…funny that.

    Well, I will be in the BL most days till I leave for a conference in Scotland…

    I’m at the Friends House on Euston road and I’m pretty much the only one there…
