Me to my 5 year old: What’s up?
5 yr old: I’m in a bad mood.
Me: Oh no. Why?

The trouble with dating a poet @DaniCugini is that you come home expecting to find that they've written a rhyming sonnet with flower imagery and instead they show you the first two lines "george clooney has never fucked / a coffee machine" and I just

When sending drafts to your supervisor:

Option 1) Respond to all your supervisor's comments; ensure all relevant bibliography is read; add introductions and conclusions to make your argument clear.

Option 2) none of the above but put your work in Garamond so it looks polished

What can Latin teachers do about racist & problematic narratives in their Latin textbooks? Tom Di Giulio has a way to use those stories to build racial competence in the Classics classroom. Excited about this resource. Huge contribution. #ClassicsTwitter https://medium.com/ad-meliora/five-tips-for-teaching-racial-competency-with-racially-biased-textbooks-708706aa04cc

I really enjoyed this thoughtfully critical review of the @AshmoleanMuseum #LastSupperinPompeii exhibition by @annapjudson - especially her important point about the dangers of treating exceptionally lavish households as "the typical Roman house"https://itsallgreektoanna.wordpress.com/2020/01/07/last-supper-in-pompeii-at-the-ashmolean/

“I want to spend 90 minutes filling in forms to get my £120 travel expenses back”

“I want to spend 7-8 years hopping between temporary jobs”

“I want to keep having to justify my existence to a world which doesn’t value arts research”

Am I doing it right @AcademicChatter https://twitter.com/AbuIlboudo/status/1214815981903761408

ADDENDUM: I was also impressed that @britishmuseum included a trigger warning at the start of their exhibition: this is a really sensible way to handle potentially distressing subject matter.

- you get to see Alexander Pope’s copy of the Iliad which includes his HAND-DRAWN DIAGRAM of the SHIELD of ACHILLES, which somehow deserves a tweet to itself (3/4)

- vibrant and varied material on the reception of the Troy myth across the ages: I learned *loads* about medieval Europeans’ retellings (and Iliad-related self-portrayals) and a diverse range of modern artistic and literary responses to the Troy myth (2/4)
