Hello World!

A few completely unrelated points today:

  • I had one of those "You know you're a Classics student when" moments the other day. Cinescape reported that writers had been hired to pen the upcoming Elektra film, and I immediately thought they were referring to the play by Sophocles. Alas, they weren't, but at least the film has Jennifer Garner.

  • Thank-you for your emails on the jaffle iron question. I am now confident that the US has not in fact been deprived of this wonderful electrical appliance.

  • Gilmore Girls is finally returning to Australian screens on Tuesday nights. Not only is this my "day of hell" when I don't get home to nearly 8 p.m. courtesy of a Greek history lecture, it also happens to be the night of CSI and The West Wing. Oh well, I guess that's what they invented VCRs for.

    I hope you all have a Happy Easter and don't eat too much chocolate. I certainly have.
