An Exchange at Gresham College
If the two knaves who had espied him earlier had known his business, they might have taken more than a passing interest in the cartographer, who now strode up to Gresham's College as though he were Sir Thomas Gresham himself or some similar person who could lay claim to the place.
Within moments, Samuel Pepys himself had hurried to Arch's side and greeted him enthusiastically—never a good sign that.  "Arch!  Just the man I want to see!" exclaimed the president of the Royal Society.
Arch grunted.
"Sir Christopher advised me of your return, and I have to say this comes not a moment too soon."
Arch grunted, and the two men continued along the hall.
"Yes.  Well.  You heard of Herr Leibniz's work, yes?  It's sent the whole Society into a bloody uproar, it has, and I have to admit—though I'm no sensationalist—the whole affair has me surprisingly tickled."
At this Arch's interest was actually piqued, and he stopped to face Pepys.  Th

is dying of consumption prettily
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
She is voluptuous, audacious, wanton and can be a bit of a libertine, but well-behaved enough for all that. Usually. When she remembers. She is insouciant, capricious and easily distracted, but of a warm and willing heart, hot-blooded and quick-witted, emotionally generous when emotionally engaged. She can sometimes become melancholy, but is naturally of a sanguine temperament, artistic and passionate.

She is wordwhore and strangegirl, and makes too many, if any, apologies. She maintains an astonishing fondness for adjectives, and likes to gather them and twine them about herself like word-garlands. She feels strongly about punctuation; the matter has led to fisticuffs.

Current Residence: somewhere between here and socks, I live in a dustbunny home, much cosy
Favourite genre of music: sounds of burning
Favourite photographer: take pictures of stones in pain
Operating System: wake walk about look taste listen sniff touch sleep
MP3 player of choice: music for ears and muffins for tongue
Shell of choice: snail, O snail, my little whale! you swim so nice in my garbage pail
Wallpaper of choice: I should like one with mulberry leaves and paper clips and chocolate creams on
Skin of choice: the one I'm's got all my marks and scars and life on it
Favourite cartoon character: meeeeeee
Personal Quote: today? such a thing cannot be imagined! No. No, I declare myself to have no quote.
Listening to this song that Q says reminds her of Necro (hers) and Storin (mine). They have something really fantastic, and I love it. That sort of love/hate that's prickly and intense, with both of them incredibly drawn to one another, even as they constantly circle one another, looking for chinks in the armour, for weakness.

It's pretty hot!

Right! So I'm in SF right now, it's lovely. I'd planned to just spend these two days walking about and such, but it looooks like instead I shan't be leaving the hostel much, as walking on crutches is annoying (and gives me sore armpits) and yet I worry about maiming myself if I don't use them. DILEMMA! I do really want to figure out how to get to Kaplan Surplus in Tenderloin tomorrow, though...I heart it.

When I get home, I expect to be working pretty intensely on my website. I need to put some more art up, update flickr and such, make sure the RSS things and various feeds are as they ought be. It's exhausting! I also need to install Storytlr, but it's a bit technical and intimidating, as I'm paranoid about touching databases. Wish Bébhinn was around to help me out, but then she'd expect to tinker with her hands. Ooh, I want to draw her now.

OH! Almost forgot. There are two series I'm planning to do, when I get back. One will simply be drawings of outfits I have that I like. That's all; I just like drawing pretty outfits. The other I plan to call 'Narcissism', and I'll say more about that when/if it actually happens. It's an idea/project I feel pretty conflicted about, which likely means I need to do it, but it's also hard to start. Wish me luck!
