Elizabeth, in a rambunctious mood, put her head through the door of one of our glass-doored bookcases. She is OK, except for a very small cut on the back of her head. I have a few small cuts on my left hand from reaching into the glass to pull her out. (Typical of that kind of mother injury, I didn't feel a thing. Carl pointed out that there was blood on my fingers.) Even the books on the other side of he glass are fine.
Having cleaned up the broken glass, I am calming down at the computer with a cup of chamomile tea and am finding much on the web to distract me from the rush of adrelin and maternal hormones:
- Much to my surprise, Mark Thatcher is expected to enter some sort of guilty plea in the Equatorial Guinea coup scandal. It appears a few too many of his minions turned state's evidence. Yee haw! (Thanks Jan!)
- CNN reports on an article in Nature to the effect that some mammals ate dinosaurs: Fossil shows baby dinosaur in mammal's belly. Very cool.
- And over at Crooked Timber, Henry Farrell holds a "seminar" on China Mieville's Iron Council.
Now back to my regularly scheduled workload.
