About Me

I am a Girl Friday at a non-profit foundation in NYC, but my heart belongs to the Greeks and the Romans. In 2003 I read the Odyssey and it changed my life. I am now two thirds of my way through a degree in Classical Studies and have my eye on graduate school.But until I get my BA and a few dead languages under my belt I am stuck juggling the day job with the ancients.

When I don’t have my nose stuck in a school book I love science fiction, cosy British mysteries, yoga and baking yummy treats for my husband, Alex.

    I stumbled onto your blog via Bookishly Fab’s blogroll. Nice blog ! I will have to drop by on a regular basis. I admire your willingness to pursue a degree in Classical Studies. If you haven’t already, read Rome Inc: The Rise and Fall of the First Multinational Corporation by Stanley Bing. It was one of the best books I read in 2009. I reviewed it, albeit only briefly on my book blog:http://maphead.wordpress.com/2009/02/16/friends-romans-countrymen-lend-me-your-corner-office/
    Anyway, glad I stopped by your blog. I am also a big BSG fan and although I don’t have cable, I have watched the pilot for Caprica and enjoyed it.
    You might have also inspired me to dust off a few classical era-related books from my personal library ! IF Stone’s Trial of Socrates and DF Kitto’s The Greeks have been sitting unread on my shelf for far too long !!

    Hey… just wanted to stop by and say that your blog is awesome! Having meandered over from Twitter out of curiosity, I’ve just managed to waste a considerable portion of my working morning having a browse! Keep up the great work x
