January 31, What was it that I ate for lunch? I had a tasty lunch today: But what the heck was it called? And I've done extensive web searches on possible names and ingredients. I guess I'll just have to call the restaurant, but that seems embarassingly low-tech.
Meanwhile, I'm wondering if Chopsticks moved or closed in Squirrel Hill, as I was reading Munch's lastest culinary adventure in the paper.
I hope it is still open, as I have a bogo coupon. If it has been turned into an Indian restaurant, I'll be a mixed bag of emotion. I do love samosa, but the cuisine as a whole is too tomato-heavy, thus rendering it inedible and frightening.
Then I wonder if their samosas would really be that good anyway; my sister-in-law made some rather tasty ones for Thanksgiving one year and may have ruined me forever. Speaking of food, how do they make mustard relish at Steak and Shake? Is it really just mustard and relish?
If so, is it sweet relish or dill? A quick search showed that Chopsticks is atand Indian Oven is at They must've moved before I knew that they existed. Posted by Julie Young at The MyDoom worm is mildly frighteningmainly because it has taken an interest in my delightful acad email account.
I got several of the "undeliverable" messages, and the appropriate virus attachment. I didn't open it, yet I'm still freakishly running a virus scan at least twice a day the at start-up one, and then my paranoid "did it work? I do feel like I'm in on the ground floor though, since my virus messages came on Monday.
All this talk of medieval bookslanguage and Chaucer makes me think of Robert Cotton, my favorite librarian in history second only to my lovely sister, the cataloger extraordinairre.
Cotton had, I think, one of the most interesting methods of cataloguing books: Of course, he was apparently a walking card catalog, so it didn't really matter that his collection was organized in such a strange fashion.
Wright of the British Library says this of Cotton's library: The Library of Sir Robert Cotton is arguably the most important collection of manuscripts ever assembled in Britain by a private individual.
Early on in his career, Cotton had advocated the foundation of a national library of which his collection would form a part Which leads me to wonder about other notable libraries in Britian, of roughly the same time period.
I did a quick search and came up with Cambridge and Oxford. Oxford's Bodleian Library has an interesting site with scanned images of manuscripts from the 11th century to the 17th. Cambridge's library has an interesting retrospective of it's past yearsand gives a short description of a library during the s.Patrick's Cathedral in New York City: A historical and architectural overview Patrick's Cathedral is a 'working' cathedral in the U.S.: it stands both as a historical monument but also offers the function of a place of worship to parishioners.
Quoting the Spanish Jesuit Vaninus, Tonge interpreted his description of a brother who was sent to London, where he labored forty-nine days "in cutting stones," as an allusion to the Gun Powder Plot to blow up "the Walls under the Parliament House." Such false stone-cutters then arranged the murder of Charles I and the Great Fire of London.
Carver was influenced by James Salter, but unlike Salter who created a world from the everyday moments of a single family, Carver's stories are vignettes into the lives of the American diaspora.
Like his characters, Carver's career was overshadowed by alcoholism, poverty a broken marriage and cancer. Myth is a body of story that matters—the patterns present in mythology run deeply in the human psyche Why writers echo myth—because there’s only one story (see #4) Odyssey and Iliad.
Carvers Cathedral Platos Myth of the Cave and Carvers Cathedral provide insight into parallel words. The protagonists in each story are trapped in a world of ignorance because each is comfortable in the dark, and fearful of what knowledge a light might bring.
