Not quite what I had set my mind on, but interesting nonetheless. I enjoy just about all sorts of documentation of the past there is to find. In many ways we are wiser now than what we used to be, but in many other ways we think about and ask ourselves just the same questions which we did many thousands of years ago.

His Macedonian troops forsaking him,
and manifest their preference for Pyrrhus, —
Demetrius the King (a great-souled man
he was) did not at all, so people said,
act like unto a King. For he then went
and took off the majestic dress he wore
took off the purple shoes; and hastily
slipped into plain attire, and stole away:
behaving as behaves a common player,
who, having played his part upon the stage,
changes his dress and leaves the theatre.
So, Shakespeare just stole all that stuff from the Greeks, huh?

I knew you would love that one. I was saving it for your appearance.

1815 is perhaps arbitrary. I'm not sure. But it does fit in with the early nation forming quite well in that it was when the European powers backed off. So far we are dealing with the Jeffersonian revolution and republicanism. It's not chronological but is organized around topics.

I'll try to find Keller's The Story of My Life to read soon. It should be interesting to see her own take and perspective on her childhood.

The DC tie is going to be in Novi Sad. Maybe you can go.

Nole won't be there.

I don't think we've ever categorized your cat.

I would like it to be a Norweigan Forrest Cat, but I'm open to other types too.

Also isn't it a bit cold up there for your cat to be out at night? Aysha has only deigned to set a paw outside in the last 3 weeks.

So here's the list:
Name
Gender (I say this only to piss off WG because gender is really just a cultural construct. )
Breed/short/longhair
coloring, be specific
eye color
number of years the cat has owned you.
