My abstract has been accepted for the “Forging Folklore: Witches, Pagans and Neo-Tribal Cultures” conference at Harvard May 3-5, 2007. I’ll be speaking on Finnish magic and music which ought to be entertaining. Of course, I’ll find an excuse to bring my kantele along as well. I had planned to attend the conference anyway as it has a great set of folks, including Ronald Hutton who will be keynote speaker Thursday night of the conference.
The Joey Zone is happy: he got name-checked in Elena’s Goth Scout strip on Sunday!
Less good: lack of plowing on campus (and Albany streets) meant I could not find a place to park today, so I finally gave up and came home to work. Good thing I can do almost all my work from home — except for the office hours. Sorry, students! At least I don’t have any meetings scheduled today. Besides, I would have had to leave early for my doctor’s appointment anyway. Perhaps tomorrow I need to bring the snow shovel and dig out a parking space for myself. Let’s hope the melting starts soon!
