Hee hee - somewhere between the Welsh cauldrun of rebirth and human flatworms :)

Ahem - 'caldron'.

I love Méliès. Alex and I just watched his Voyage dans la Lune during the Apollo anniversary coverage. He has such a wonderfully strange, playful and exotic sensibility. I want to live in the atmosphere of his films.

Crystal, I just thought Cauldrun was the Welsh form of the word.

I see that some of my spiritual time cells have escaped and are UP to their 'old tricks' again! Will they ever learn? :)

Liam, have your classes started? What are you teaching?

Liam said...

Yes, I started yesterday. I'm teaching Western Civilization from 1500 to the present (College of Staten Island) and Global Civilizations until 1500 (City College)... basically all of history.

Liam, for some reason, I've never been able to get the year 1066 out of my head. I know that our history teacher was talking about the battle of Hastings but God only knows why I've forgotten almost every other dates but for some reason, I held on to that one!

I hear ya! Don't worry 'Bout' "IT" Victor, I'm sure that sinner vic will send one of his many spiritual cells to investigate "IT" all during Eternity.

Do you really think so? :)

Peace
