So my student emails to tell me that when he searched "American history" (looking for a documentary to watch) (which is required) (I mean, he's a normal person, not just someone who searches for history documentaries for no reason on a Wednesday night) this is what Netflix offered him.
In other news, Iain decided to try artichoke tonight. He liked it. I'm happy, except that he ate half of my artichoke.

Doing so right after your birthday.
Did Mrs. Mama Hauss make me shan tart? (AKA Pavlova, AKA Schaum Tart) Yes, she did. Did Miriam find a beautiful pewter bracelet with daffodils carved into it? Yep. My favorite flower and the flower of my birth month. Did dinner include corn pudding? Indeed, it did. Was I forced (forced, I tell you!) to sample a wide range of bourbons? So tragic. But yes. Yes, I was.
I recommend birthdays Chez Hauss.

Miriam selflessly sacrificed her grosgrain ribbon belt so I could tie it on myself and thus achieve proper amplification. Problem solved.
But anywaaaay...there I was, in the downstairs reception room and who did I see? Why, it's Daniel Boone. It's the portrait on the cover of John Mack Faragher's biography, a book I assigned this year to my biography seminar.

Makes me re-think my approach to class. Perhaps more stripes and a nice pair of goggles would help me convey the nuances of...the Great Depression. No? Why not?
