Still doing Milton research. I think I may hate him now. I’m not sure.
I find myself wandering on the web when I should be working. I haven’t started cooking pickles yet so that’s a good sign.
I found a site called The Literature Network. They have “over 300 full books and over 1000 short stories and poems by over 90 authors.” On-line works are kind of crap to read, but they are a God-send when it comes to research. The ability to do a word search alone makes it worth while.
The Online Etymology Dictionary is also kinda neat. This is a list of the sources that comprise their database.
The OED it’s not (although it is one of their sources) it’s still incredibly impressive. And it’s free. Always a big plus.
eBay never ceases to amaze. The person selling this car was described on one web site as using “skewed batman camera angles,” and while I agree they are as wacky as Batman and Robin are homoerotic, I prefer to think of them as something Michael Bay would have shot while on high on angel dust. But that’s just me.
Back to Milton…
