"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


days like these

A couple of random links at the end of a very long day of far too many whining, irresponsible students (OH MY GOSH - WHY would you email your professor 2 weeks before the exam asking for a make-up due to a tennis match, then not reply to the professor's email until 30 minutes before the time she told you you could make it up to say that you couldn't make it up then?!?). Days like this make me question my life choices.
  • Liz Phair's Exile in Guyville will be re-released this summer. And half a million women in their early thirties just sighed in memory of their riot grrl days. (I saw her one summer in Nashville and I have to say, it wasn't as impressive as it should've been.)
  • Abstinence as a feminist stance? Only at Hah-vahd. (Seriously. This is an interesting take on what it's like to be a person of non-mainstream conviction at an elite university.)
  • I bet Mom and my newly-retired Daddy can almost taste the Tennessee-UConn match they'd love to see in Tampa next week.
  • I am so tempted to go see this show on Thursday.
  • I already wanted to read this book. After reading this review, I want to read it even more.
  • How is there not a newer Bradt Guide to Peru than the 2002 edition? Bradt Guides are the only country guides I like, because they are comprehensive and are written by outsiders who have lived and worked in the countries. These are the people who are giving us a guide to the Congos! Why can't they update a place as simple as Peru?!?
  • Yeah, so I'm planning a trip with friends for late summer...
