Ye gods. He's a Nobel prize winner who once managed to beat an 8 year old (my brother, years ago) at "Star Wars Monopoly", but got whupped at "Lord of the Rings Trivial Pursuit" by a 21 year old (me). Not a god. Although if he were a god, he'd be a very nice (and smart) one. And I suppose this makes Betsy a sort of domestic fertility goddess, as all the great divine consorts were (Eve, Fricka, Hera, etc.)
Off to New York with the Pitches. My hellish (but fun) semester is over, and I hope I have finally shaken off the spectre of Orfeo and can start blogging again next semester. These big projects are fun, but they do wreak havoc on your academics, long-distance relationships, job search (so far completely unsuccessful), other extra-curriculars (like blogging) and most especially your health. Ever since Orfeo I've been continually sick, although that could have something to do with the horrible Boston winter.
