Dental Anguish

Two dental appointments, two cavities filled, a very unpleasant cleaning, but it’s good to have this done before moving. Thank goodness it looks like we’ll have some real dental coverage once we get to Sackville, thanks to my wife’s doctoral fellowship.

Relocation

Well, it certainly has been a long time since I’ve blogged. And this is a bit of a tease really because one of the reasons for this post is to say that I may not be able to blog much over the next few weeks. I’ve also taken this opportunity to update the sidebar. But first of all, an update…

In just over a week, my wife and I will be moving to Sackville, New Brunswick to teach at Mount Allison University. I’ll be teaching in both the Department of English and the Department of Classics. I’ll try to write more about my teaching in a later post, once we’ve installed ourselves in our new place.

In any case, suffice it to say that I’ve been very busy this summer preparing to move, getting ready for my new courses, teaching a summer session of Chaucer at U of T, and generally enjoying Toronto and seeing my Toronto friends before we leave.

Anyway, I’ll do my best to keep everyone updated through this blog as we move and get settled, and hopefully once things are back to normal I’ll get back to blogging on matters medieval, linguistic, academic, gastronomic, etc.
