I understand, that is the same that happened to me: now I feel this is my home...

I've only been in Jutland when travelling through to go some other places. It's so expensive to travel inside Denmark... so when I have the money to travel, I prefer to go other places...

I was crazy at that time and I wanted to learn Danish :-D So I moved here and learned the language, and in that process I met a Dane... and I'm still here! How about you?

Hi there! Nice to meet you :-)

Well, it doesn't feel like summer today. But April was OK, don't you think?

Thanks for your comment, Ian -- progress is slow but it is progress nonetheless, and it beats the hell out of drinking! =D

...*male or female*...I love to correct my grammatical errors!! I should be an editor. That is my calling!! :)

I can honestly say that I did not find it sexist at all...I understood that love in itself can be devilish for all. Male of female. I love her name. I would never have thought of that as a shortened version of Susanne, but it works very well. She sounds delightful. Good for you. I wish I could find someone who is a geek-nerd like me, and is atheist. I just cannot even imagine being with someone who worships a god, or is involved in organized religion. Alas, I shall be single the rest of my days...sigh.
The boys celebrate their b-days all month. We are all in great spirits right now. Have a great day!!

A British ex-pat born in the fifties, named Ian and living in a largely religious area while working in a human physiology related career and writing for fun... and I just got round to transferring Fleetwood Mac's Albatross from vinyl to CD. Nature and nurture similarities produce some funny old results. It probably comes from a childhood of learning to make things out of old washing up liquid bottles at the direction of Valerie Singleton and Peter Purves on Blue Peter (Get down, Shep!) I'm off to watch my DVD of the prisoner because I'm not a number, I'm a free man. I enjoyed your HMS Hood poem. As if this wasn't coincidental enough, I used a model of HMS Hood in a recent short story.
Cheers,
The other Ian

I know the feeling--before I studied literature full-time, I used to go on reading 'splurges' when I found an author or genre I liked. Now my reading list is mostly dictated by the modules I'm doing, but I'm not complaining--I have experienced books and authors that I wouldn't normally have approached.

I must admit that I'm not a Shakespeare fan--Drama has never particularly interested me, and I prefer Marlowe and Middleton anyway--they always seemed so much grittier and more exciting. But I'm heartened to hear that I'm not the only person whose reading choices have been influenced by Star Trek! :) How did you find Gilgamesh, by the way? Which translation did you read?

My MA dissertation is going to be based around poetry, probably that of Amy Levy although I have yet to decide for sure. I will also be taking courses on Psychoanalysis and Victorian literature. I hope to specialise in Victorian-era poetry for my PhD, but unfortunately my plans aren't any more specific than that at the moment. Exciting, though!

I like your poetry--the line in Whetherland about Westboro made me smile and "Start" stands out as very striking--how long have you been writing? Have you ever been published?

Mild and grey, so pretty much the same. I visited Denmark once when I was very young, but unfortunately I don't remember it at all, except that I had to wear a snow hat and my ears were cold :)

You mentioned you were a former literature student--do you have any particular areas of interest?

Thanks for the welcome :) What's the weather like over there in Denmark?

Hi, Ian Mason. Thank you, very much.

Thanks for your comment, but I didn't Understand anything.
Can you tell me what your talking about?

Hmm, moving place to place sounds fun and like a good experience, though where they don't speak English would be difficult (for me). :D

In Michigan? Eh...I live in a suburbian area with many immigrants so it's diverse. Though, I don't like certain types of people which makes it difficult to find friends. It's definitely not a small town and neither a city like New York.

Where do you live now? :P

They should have been more aware of the dangers that arise when the noble bean is withheld from being mixed with estrogen! That is truly dangerous!!
