LOOK AT ALL THE CORGIS
IT ALMOST TAKES AWAY FROM WHATEVER THE HECK AWFUL FACE PRINCE WILL’S GOT GOING ON OVER THERE
Medieval books were incredibly expensive. When placed in a public place, for example in a cathedral or public library, they were often chained to the lectern or bookshelf on which they were placed (as you can see in this blog about Zutphen’s chained library). It turned the book into a prisoner. The chain and the book-attachment are almost always clunky, the chains usually rattly. Reading a book like this was a challenging and particularly noisy affair! It was not exactly contributing to the silence that was to be obeyed in a library - that jail filled with noisy prisoners.

- January - The unemployment and medicaid welfare programs in this country exist, but are next to worthless because a man whose condition was literally so bad he died the next month was deemed ineligible for any sort of benefit.
- February - It’s very hard to cry when there are still things to be done.
- March - Not all homecomings are happy homecomings.
- April - Socializing is harder than it used to be.
- May - I really miss clear night skies.
- June - Indigo Girls music makes me even more emotional than it used to.
- July - I learn something fascinating from everyone I meet, even if things end badly.
- August - Bad movies are more fun in big groups with inflatable sharks. :)
- September - Sometimes splurging on myself is okay.
- October - I have a lot of people depending on me for a lot of things.
- November - Many of my memories hurt very badly, but neither the memories themselves nor the people associate with them are the “enemy”, so it’s important to try to replace regret and frustration with acceptance and love. After all, these are people that I cared for immensely, and ultimately only I have any power over how I felt or feel about things.
- December - The backward-apostrophe symbol that shares a key with the tilde on American keyboards is called a “grave”. [grahv]
hello yes see the thing about ‘reverse racism’ is that by saying that it exists you are literally equating hundreds of years of systematic abuse, oppression, slavery, murder, etc. to a few jokes told on the internet and idk i may not be good at math but even i can tell that equation does not add up
see reverse racism doesn’t exist. any kind of discrimination of an individual based on race is racism. period.
this is??? exactly what i was talking about??? equating hundreds of years of systematic abuse, oppression, slavery, murder, etc. to a few comments on the internet??? no??? that doesn’t make sense???
If I were a more clever man I’d make a hard-hitting and educational post about the difference between racial prejudice, racial discrimination, and racism, but for now I’ll just pointedly acknowledge that there is a difference and hope someone else is in rarer form than me today. ;;
I would like to give a sincere thanks to the unknown wonder trader last night who gave me an pokemon that, with a little bit of careful breeding, allowed me to hatch a perfect-IV HP/Atk/Def/Spd Axew that is probably going to get EV-trained while I’m in line waiting for The Hobbit tonight.
Thank you, anonymous stranger!
