I am going to be busy over the weekend attending a conference here in Philly. I will be out to dinner with grad school colleagues and all that, so I shan't be posting for a few days. Tonight was the plenary session followed by a reception. The food was really heavy on the meat and cheese (surprise, surprise) so I spent my time drinking beer and eating garnishes. To be fair, they did have some very mediocre grilled tofu cubes and some fruit skewers. It's always hilarious to get a group of historians together--picture a bunch of ill-dressed, socially awkward, introverted nerds trying to socialize.
