I think I christened Sundays Odds & Ends Sundays a bit ago, so I’ll just babble today.
On a side note: Dear lord. It is so flippin’ windy today. There is debris just flying everywhere outside. I mean like 20-feet-up-in-the-air everywhere.
It’s been such a weird winter. In Minnesota, not having any snow on the ground in mid-December is disconcerting. In a good way. I hate snow.
Well, it’s not snow I hate, but driving in snow. Because when you get a fresh snowfall, it’s a thing of beauty. When you get Minnesota drivers, it’s a thing of car crashes.
New topic: So what did you want to be when you were growing up? I’ve been thinking about that lately.
I had a few occupations I considered. Mainly, I wanted to be an Egyptologist. I was fascinated by pyramids. Or I wanted to be a detective. I even set up a detective office in my basement. I have no clue what I did to… you know, actually detect. But it was quite the set-up.
In later years, I wanted to be an historian on a PBS documentary. I thought that it sounded cool:
But alas and alack, I most likely will not ever get my doctorate or PhD. I’m too lazy. And the publish-or-perish world of academia doesn’t appeal. my senior thesis was my last paper I will hopefully ever have to write.
But yo, if you want to know anything about the relationship between Queen Victoria and Albert, let me know.
