w00000000t!!!!

A HAPPY DANCE!!!

I just got back from the library, where I picked up my latest ILL:

_Gesta Normannorum_- chronicles of the 11th and 12th century by William of Jumiges, Orderic Vitalis, and Robert of Torigny-

IN FACING-PAGE TRANSLATION!!!

My pitiful lack of Latin skillz will no longer hold me back (in this place at least) ! I may finally be able to find out where Henry Plantagenet was in August and September of 1154, and what he was up to!

Can we say Kinko's? Yes, we can! (Actually, probably my favorite local copy guy- he's cheaper than Kinko's.)

I may finally be able to move on and get the research and writing going again! Yay!

And I had a German Pancake with blueberries and raspberry couleƩ for breakfast. Yummy! I like feast days...

UPDATE:

FAIL! AARRGHH! The Chronicle ends just before the time period I need! There's got to be more somewhere, but not in this copy! I am SOOOOOOOO frustrated!

I miss Calvin and Hobbes...

So do I! Of course, once Rosalyn entered the Realm of Understanding in Calvin Ball, everything changed...

Woot! I totally approve of the gesta normanorum. I used that as one of my primary sources for my senior thesis. I completely approve of books that post with a facing translation page.
