I love Eddie Izzard and this is one of the best bits of his “done” as Legos! :D THANKS!!

So I decided that I was definitely have something smothered in arabiata tonight, but my grocer let me down. It’s back to plain old marinara on the rocks, with a chaser.

Amazing what you can do with Legos. A site of substantial interest for one of my research projects, in the 18th century near Windsor Castle, has become Legoland U.K. in recent years. Too bizarre for me.

I give my final exam tomorrow night; I shall be murmuring “death by tray,” I’m sure!

There’s also a clip of Izzard himself running through the dialogue, but, for me, the Lego version is better.

I’ve met that canteen worker, by the way. He changes jobs, though. Sometimes he’s at the DMV. He’s been a TSA agent, I swear.

(I’m still laughing as I write.) And now, having left academe, I ain’t grading, either. (Make that a diabolically self-serving laugh.)

But please know I do miss some of my old life as university-based historian. Thank goodness for your blog, Historiann!

This year’s innovation: some students just didn’t bother to write one. One question baffled almost everyone and I thought it’s a give away.

Now is time to watch foreign movies (Netflix), read and make and send to my kids my late mother’s cookies. Too cold for other things.
