Well, the guy whose computer this is didn't come in today after all, so i got all caught up on LJ people and e-mail and did an errand for my mother (first time i've ever been in Children's Hospital, i think) and bought myself lunch at Au Bon Pain and came back and read my Secret Slasha fic and got anxious because my Secret Slasha hasn't said anything about her gift fic in her LJ and worked on lilithchilde's fic.

Return to Smith will mean copious posting.

Anyone know any sites with good information about Saturnalia? I found the two below, but the Net has been generally unhelpful.

*remembers tendollarwords and goes off to post there as well*

edit: Working further on the Saturnalia thing, i have an additional question. The websites i found give a good basic overview (though i'd like confirmation from someone who knows that they're accurate) but i was looking for origins and development, putting it a bit more into context. But working more on this, i'm also curious as to whether similar festivals (reversing the natural order of things) existed outside of the Roman Empire.
