440 years ago, this woman let M. Clouet into her personal space to create a memento for the family. Chances are her husband hung this portrait in his study so he could admire his wife and her virtues. And by "virtues", I don't actually mean "boobs." The admiring husband of 1571 would be interested in the fruit of his wife's womb before her bust came into the picture.
berangere posted in archaeology: Legislation : preventive archaeology, which answers "I would really like to learn more about archeology in cities. They're building a new library here and they're letting the archaeologists in to do some work before they start building.

raven wrote a Cordelia-centered Vorkosigan fic which I quite liked: Fic:: Walking Away From Omelas [Vorkosigan]. There's so much good Cordelia-centered Vorkosigan fic, I'm beginning to wonder if my issues with the series were more the time & place I read it in.

Today I am feeling that all the energy inside of me cannot possibly be contained by my skin. This is a very uncomfortable feeling. And I am going back to the archives in the hopes that there will be fewer people on the good microfilm machines because I got quite ill yesterday from the bad ones. So many things to look at. I'm trying not to be distracted by the trespassing & the cows.
