Emma is contagious. I seem to never want to go to bed anymore.

And it's not like i'm doing any of my interesting and productive work anymore tonight even; i'm just wandering LJ.

However, i was telling Emma earlier that i am so going to grow up and be That Girl Professor who posts "Dear LiveJournal: help me with my syllabus" (because i am already That Student) and lo, what did i find while trawling LJ tonight? Homosexual Desire in Shakespeare's England.

And pulling that up on Amazon also got me Queering the Renaissance, Homosexuality in Renaissance England (which i actually randomly came across at Trinity Library when i was in Oxford), and Figuring Sex Between Men from Shakespeare to Rochester, just for starters.

And i searched the library and yes, Smith owns Homosexual Desire in Shakespeare's England (i stopped myself for looking for the other ones), and even has Subject headings: "Homosexuality and literature -- England -- History -- 16th century" and "Homosexuality and literature -- England -- History -- 17th century"

This and Emma's Victorian porn Sexualities books are totally going to constitute my j-term. I've been anxious for the j-term course listings to go up, but really, who needs institutionalized classes when one has a library and a geek-complex?

Okay, bed now.
