regndoft: (Vestal {Ab Antiquo})
I am ridiculously late with... everything I should have finished during the weekend, both fan-wise and school-wise. I don't have any entirely good excuses for this.

Was supposed to work thursday-friday last week, but as I had to meet up with a classmate to plan a presentation on the Presocratics and she didn't have time any other day of the week, I had to prioritise that. Not that I'm complaining about not having to work - but it does make me feel guilty, and I need the money.

But even more importantly, met up with [personal profile] stalkerbunny in the afternoon. We had Indian for relatively reasonable prices before going to the Mediterranean Museum; they arrange several seminars and open nights every month, and last week the theme was non-binary gender identity in ancient Greece and Rome.

So obviously, we had to go! I even dressed up nicely for the evening (that's how rarely I get out, folks). There is visual proof of this.

Other stuff that happened this weekend:

- the books I ordered a while back arrived. Images of Classical Myth for uni, but also John Ajvide Lindqvist's Lilla Stjärna and The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I'm looking forward to reading both of them, but right now I'm caught up with The Life of Pi and Seeing I (for henriettastreet).

- Daphne Ashbrook (who played Grace Holloway in the Doctor Who TV movie) has a Tumblr. I have known this for a while, but this weekend it was taken over by Daleks. My show, you guys. There's nothing quite like it (or its cast, presumably).

- Am currently doing the history of Greek literature at uni. Not entirely unsurprisingly, it just makes me want to write fanfic.

(If I wrote about Doctor/Master in relation to the purpose and narrative devices of the Greek tragedy, would that be fun or just super pretentious? Hmmm.)

- I'm a bit busy atm so the drabbles have been put on hold, but I promise they'll happen. As soon as I've finished the summary for my presentation on wednesday. :)
