What's on the nightstand

by H. Rider Haggard


a fifty degree change in temperature

Tuesday, 23 March, 2004

We came. We saw. We trolloped.

Trollop Fest 2004 was - as expected - a riotous adventure. Steph drove down to Philly from Ithaca Thursday night. She is a teacher at Cornell's Hotel School and quite a "foodie", so Gary spent the evening preparing dinner. She got there about 8:30 and just as we sat down to eat - roast duck, garlic potatoes, white asparagus with homemade bearnaise - Gary's beeper went off and he had to go into the hospital to do an appendix. Poor guy. But Steph and I enjoyed the food, drank a Red Zinfandel ("Cardinal Zin") that Laurie sent for Christmas and watched Caddyshack and The Holy Grail.

Our flight was at 6:00 a.m. the next morning - I'll post some of the pictures and the Trip Report soon.

Another one of those amusing "Who Are You" quizzes - this one is about poets. I'm this guy . . . who just so happens to have authored the quote at the top of my home page:

Walt Whitman

You are Walt Whitman! Champion of the
Transcendentalist American Ideal, Walt Whitman
is one of the first poets to use the "free
verse" form in America. He has been
imitated, but will never be duplicated, just
like you! Except for by everyone else who gets
Walt Whitman ;)

Which famous poet are you? (pictures and many outcomes)

Quote du jour:

"Do I contradict myself?/
Very well, then I contradict myself,/
I am large, I contain multitudes."

-- Walt Whitman (1819 - 1892) US poet
