F is for Fun! (and Fasionably late)

Today is F-day for the A-Z Challenge, and as you can see, I'm Fashionably Late making my post. That's because I spent all night on an Amtrak train traveling to the Northern Plains Conference on Early British Literature.

If the train hadn't been 2-1/2 hours late so that I boarded at midnight, it probably wouldn't have been quite so bad. But now I'm at the hotel and I think a shower, food, and nap are in order before the Festivities begin.

Going to be lots of Fun times with all those wacky medievalists!

And for G-day tomorrow, in keeping with the early brit lit theme of the weekend, I may just post on Grendel...who knows. You'll just have to come back and find out!

You can NEVER go wrong with a good nap! :-)

Hope you have lots of fun! I'm thinking Chaucer...

Whan that Aprill, with his shoures soote
The droghte of March hath perced to the roote
And bathed every veyne in swich licour,
Of which vertu engendred is the flour.

Can you believe we actually had learned to read Middle English in high school so we could read his poems? And I STILL remember the opening lines!

Oh, but I wish I were at the conference. It's April and Chaucer reigns!

Hope you're rested up and have a great evening!
