Good luck to all the Kalamazoo bloggers ...

... and I hope that after the conference has come to its brilliant conclusion someone will offer some thoughts about the bloggers meet-up and the blogging session. [Weblogs and the Academy: Internet Presence and Professional Discourse among Medievalists (A Roundtable)]

Don't feed the geese, may you never meet the mystery person with whom you will share the bathroom in your dorm, and wassail!

I never met my bathroom buddy, but I did hear his fluty baritone the first night I was there, when he expounded to 2 friends about circumcision and the size of Irish genitalia. I couldn't tell whether he was pro or con on either account, although I heard every word clearly for about 45 minutes.

I took great comfort the next morning in peering at his hairbrush and noting that the clumps of blond in it suggested to me that he was rapidly balding.

File that under "ONLY at Kalamazoo."

My pet theory on medieval studies, by the way, is that the greatness of a medievalist can be judged solely by the greatness of the hair that medievalist possesses. Sounds like your mystery dorm mate is rapidly on his way down the scale.
