The History of English

Because I'd like to read some actual comments which are not links to cool new escort services, I thought I'd post this video, which my Cousin Walter sent to me.  The reason you haven't been hearing much from me is that I've been up to here in getting settled into my first reasonably long-term (6 weeks) teaching gig since I quit teaching full-time in 1993.  It's a cushy gig:  teaching writing to MA students in the Hollins University Children's Literature program, 12 students, 6 hours a week.  Now, going into the 3rd week, I've finally got most of the lessons planned out,  handouts organized, office hours posted, and ancillary exercises written.  Now I can rest on my laurels, drink mint juleps write the second draft of my current WIP and finish the proposal for the sequel.  I worked out the main plot problem I'd been having with it yesterday, on a long walk through Hollins's beautiful, rolling, green campus. 

OK, I have coleslaw to make for the potluck tonight.  Here's the video.  Should be catnip to the Anglophiles and word geeks among you.  I certainly enjoyed it.
