DC Bound

My cat-tacular cat ring courtesy of ModCloth. Isn’t it just the cutest?

Ignore the terrible state of my nails....
This Wednesday I'm getting the heck out of New Haven for a quick trip down to Washington DC for a conference. I haven't been back to DC since living there for three months back in 2009 while doing research for my dissertation and I happen to be presenting on the same panel at the conference as one of my old housemates from my time at the Folger Shakespeare Library (a delightful Scottish gent now based in Sheffield) so I am really excited to be able to catch up with him. I've also got a dinner, a lunch, and cocktails scheduled with several other old friends and fellow historians/literary scholars currently scattered around the US and Canada (including a good friend from my days at the University of Alberta) - it's shaping up to be a brilliant trip!

Finally, I shared these (and more) images on the Facebook page over the weekend, but these stunning shots of Kate Moss from the April issue of Vogue deserve to be showcased again. To. Die. For.
