I have internet in Uppsala!

The internet-free weekend was pretty hectic without any distractions-- looked for Christmas presents in town on saturday before gf went with me back to Uppsala. Most of yesterday was spent cooking and baking (look at these nerdy gingerbread cookies we made!. But I had fun. Yesterday I went to Kalmar nation's choir's Christmas consert and had dinner at an Indian restaurant with friend from the dorm. (∪ ◡ ∪)

I'm more than a week behind on questions (ugh). Let's see how many I manage before I have to go study some more and make dinner...

[livejournal.com profile] lost_spook asked me about my favourite companions. I wasn't sure how to go about this question - did I want to mention my favourite favourite/s, or just companions that I like better than others? Doctor Who is a cornucopia of memorable characters. At the same time I'm not sure where to start. I considered doing my favourite companion for every Doctor, but that would get very long very fast and I'm not even sure who to choose in some cases.

So. My absolute favs and a couple of runner-ups.

Went shopping for Christmas presents today and still haven't found enough. Not to mention I haven't shipped any of the ones that needs to be mailed internationally. I am the worst at Christmas shopping, especially since I managed to talk myself into buying one for myself before finishing anyone else's (and paid by using PayPal for the first time. Praying to whatever god willing to listen that I'll actually get what I ordered and didn't just throw money into the deep end of the internet).

Following up last week's post on queer stuff in ancient Egypt, here's a fun thing I found in a book just a couple of days before I wrote that post! I was thumbing through a book on ancient Egyptian magic that was dropped from the course lit list after I'd already bought it when I stumbled upon a reference to this spell made in passing. Frustrated with this lack of information, I decided to look up the book used as source in the university library.

Thus I now present: a lesbian love spell from Graeco-Roman Egypt, third century BC.
