"Are you going to Scarborough Fair?"

[Advent day 18] Isaiah 52:7-10
7 How beautiful on the mountains
      are the feet of those who bring good news,
      who proclaim peace,
      who bring good tidings,
      who proclaim salvation,
      who say to Zion,
      "Your God reigns!"

8 Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices;
      together they shout for joy.
      When the LORD returns to Zion,
      they will see it with their own eyes.

9 Burst into songs of joy together,
      you ruins of Jerusalem,
      for the LORD has comforted his people,
      he has redeemed Jerusalem.

10 The LORD will lay bare his holy arm
      in the sight of all the nations,
      and all the ends of the earth will see
      the salvation of our God.
Prof was at meetings most of today, so I got to have a relatively veg day.

Our irregular mail guy did an impromptu rendition of "Blue Christmas" which helped break up the afternoon.

The e-mail about today's NOM talk said: Michael Jensen from the Strategy Department at the University of Michigan Business School will present “Legitimizing Illegitimacy:  Creating Markets for Socially Illegitimate Products”.

Listening to the speaker talk with Andy afterward, I would say that an alternative summary could be: Danish film buff talks about porn.  If I'd known that beforehand I might have weaseled my way into attending.  (I think the talks are open to anybody, and it's not like I had anything to do this afternoon.)

I have a meeting with Jessica and Bianca tomorrow, which may or may not be useless; we shall see.

P.S. Mmm, the heat just came on.  Additional incentive to go to bed nowish.
