Hello World!

Brrrr. It's Saturday morning here, and very very chilly. The weather's been so haphazard lately - it's cold in the morning, but then by 10:00am the sun's out in force and everyone's walking around in their winter clothes sweating because it's suddenly changed to spring.

I've got a fun-packed Saturday planned, with books like 'Elections and Electioneering in Rome' and 'The Constitution of the Roman Republic' to wade through. Political history is one of my favourite areas, but when people start rambling on about the "homogenity of its sociopolitical structure" I rapidly tune out and begin looking for other things to do.

Yesterday I sought solace in the Bryn Mawr Classical Review, a fantastic online scholarly journal. I must admit, I became quite depressed when I realised I'd probably find a book on irrigation and drainage in the ancient world quite interesting.

Edit: Er, I didn't think the server ticked over for another 45 minutes, but evidently there's been some time change. Pretend it says May 31 up there.;)
