Medieval Weblogs & Wombats in the News

I didn't realize I was linked on this list of medieval weblogs. There's a meeting at Kalamazoo this year on medieval bloggers; naturally, I am chairing a panel at the same time. But pal Scott Nokes will be there, so I'm sure he'll pass along the news. There's also a meet-up for anonymous medieval bloggers put together by the author of Ancrene Wiseass. Although I am not anonymous, I am thinking of attending (dependent always on other various social engagements).

And without transition, I almost forgot to mention the full page ad in the NYT Sunday from a large international coffee seller that listed among the wonderful things on the earth (you guessed it) wombats! Of course, we agree. While cute and cuddly, one should also remember that "these animals are not to be taken lightly and should be treated with a great deal of respect."

Only if I can have yours, Ms. Radio Star and famed collector of New England Weirdness!

Not too surprisingly, there is another so-called "Wombat's World" blog -- naturally enough, it is in Australia. Here is a painting (I think it is anyway) with the same title. Actually, I'm surprised there aren't more!
