As happens more than you'd suppose, both Nerdy History Girls have deadlines looming at the same time.
Since one of us can't fill in for the other, we will, for the next few days, be blogging only sporadically, if at all, and writing desperately so that our editors don't hate us and cast us out upon the cruel world to find a real job.
Please bear with us—and expect our regularly scheduled blogging to recommence on Sunday, with new, fresh breakfast links!
There’s a big difference in how we use history. But we’re equally nuts about it. To us, the everyday details of life in the past are things to talk about, ponder, make fun of -- much in the way normal people talk about their favorite reality show.
We talk about who’s wearing what and who’s sleeping with whom. We try to sort out rumor or myth from fact. We thought there must be at least three other people out there who think history’s fascinating and fun, too. This blog is for them.
