Cross-eyed

Oh my giddy aunt.

This will be the fastest Crazy Term EVER! I’m teasing and carding wool, creating tapestries, dying silk, making garments, doing research and writing a senior thesis! Oh, and I’m still active with this whole archery club thing. I’m only the coach, though, and I’m getting better at letting Tyson do everything.

I received my first textile-related injuries for the term today. I blame Miriam. I was doing just fine until she showed up, and then I kept scratching myself on the carding machine. Although, I did technically stab myself on the Teasing machine (“Picker”?) before Miriam got there. Still, I’m sure it was her fault. Besides, I can blame her for anything I like ‘cuz she’s never online anymore. (Mock mock mock!)

The other day Kelly brought over a delicious chocolate cheesecake. Mom and I are still eating our way through it. You just have to keep trudging on… 😉

Speaking of trudging, I came across this very cool website during my research yesterday. It’s Chaucer’s “Canterbury Tales” available in a couple formats. You can read it side-by-side with a modern translation, and you can also read it with the middle English words hyperlinked to a glossary at the bottom of the screen (so no clicking back and forth between windows, even!) Clever, no? Check it out!
