Why I feel guilty for watching episodes of Waking the Dead when I ought to be transcribing interviews for my dissertation. Or am I the only one who sees a resemblance?
(Photo on right is my advisor, but about 10 years ago — she looks even more like Sue Johnston now)

It’s one of two “Waterloo”-days (and since I can’t do it tomorrow, have it today) - 3 years and I still miss the show. Badly.

"Waking the Dead" - you were like a fishnet at times  - your plots full of holes, but many times, you were absolutely brilliant. And I love you still :D

Argh! I promised myself I wouldn’t get sucked in, and I’m getting sucked in, thanks to amazing fanfic by joodiff and gemenied.

Got S1-4 on my computer, getting the rest now.

Since Sue Johnston looks so much like my dissertation advisor that I feel guilty for watching, watching WtD counts as thinking about my work, right?

Students want everything shelved by title, but then they freak at the idea that articles are shelved within the journals they were published in (by title of journal). “What?” they ask, “don’t you pull apart the journals and shelf each article by title and by author?”
:::Facepalm:::

All these WTD photos…

are freaking me out. The actress looks a lot like my dissertation advisor, and everytime I see WTD pictures I remember that I’m at least 20 pages behind where I want to be…

    ↳The Last Lights of the Day

After several years of slavery, Charilaos (Jim Carter) a forty year old Greek man, is set free by his Roman owner. His master’s daughter, Aelia Rufa (Phyllis Logan), has been in love with him for years.

Thanks to his emancipation, she finds the courage to declare her feelings for him and they start a relationship. 

However, when things don’t go as they were supposed to, Charilaos decides to return to Greece. Will Aelia Rufa follow him?

** I chose the nomen Aelia for it was the most similar Roman name to ‘Elsie’. Also the cognomen Rufa means ‘redhead’. 

** Charilaos was the most similar Greek name to ‘Charles’.

inspired by this (x) . 

my thanks go to frakcancer and chelsie-carson.

This is absolutely gorgeous!! <3

I need this movie in my life. Everyone, in the Tardis for a short spin back a few years!

Lame librarian costumes

So today was Purim, when it’s traditional to dress up, but I just had no energy for it. So I put on the bun and the cardigan and the glasses and went around, pointing at people and telling them facts about their familial and work connections. Why? because I was —

wait for it —

a relationship designator

My exam starts at 14:00 and is supposed to end at 17:00, so I hope you’ll still be there when I finish.

And I’m glad you like it. :) 

I do! I’m working evening, so I’ll be in Hall 3 and lonely when you’re done. Come and keep me company for a while.
