Last Minute.

Local Yokels:

For those of you that don’t have day jobs and might be interested in a fast and easy way to fall asleep, I’ll be guest lecturing for M. Anderson’s British History class tomorrow afternoon on the lovely, leaf-washed campus of Dominican University. The topic: Jacobitism and its genesis in the European context, coupled with the myths and realities of the movement in Scotland, and throughout history.

Dominican University, Library Room 204
Monday, Nov. 6th, 12:50 PM

    I wish there were some way that I COULD make it. I will be on the oposite end of the bay. Congrats, on the lecture.

    Thanks for that, and you can get your own private lecture whenever you like. You've got quite enough to deal with at the moment.

    Ooooh, wish I could make it! I'm impressed by the gig, and after reading your LJ I'm sure you must be one of the best lecturers in the world. Enjoy!
    Now, who are the gents in the picture? I assume the center one is probably Bonnie Prince Shortbread himself, but what about the others? Such is my lack of education in proper subjects, that I don't even know what Cameron of Lochiel or Lord George Murray looked like :(.

    Best, nothing! I'll be lucky if I don't get moldy pumpkin seeds chucked at me.
    You're right – that's our man in the middle, flanked by Elcho on the left and Pitsligo on the right.

    Nonsense, it's Marin — all the pumpkin seeds will have been duly baked into healthy snacks by now! 😉
    Thanks for the photo ID. Funny, I'd imagined Elcho and Pitsligo as much larger cities…
    Hope the lecture went well!

    I don't suppose you can tape it for us lesser mortals? 😉

    Re: Fall asleep?!?
    Oh, you don't want to see that. Unless you watch it backward, which could be quite amusing. 🙂

    Fall asleep?!?
    It was one of the most interesting lectures I've attended in years. 🙂

    Re: Fall asleep?!?
    You, sir, are very kind to say so. Watch for my next post, wherein I explain, in no uncertain terms, how an entire class of undergraduate students failed to agree with you!

    How did it go? Don't leave us hanging!
