I'm a scientist, editor, non-fiction writer, fangirl, shipper (mainly Johnlock), and am old enough to remember Star Trek in reruns, Star Wars in theaters, animated Hobbit and LOTR films, and the Fourth Doctor.

I love Science!, language, fandoms, and artsy stuff, so that's what you'll see here. Random walks are random. And statistically satisfying.

Occasionally NSFW--you've been duly warned.

Headed home

Been on the road for almost two weeks. Still missing two manuscripts for the conference volume. Still have work to do on the ones I do have. I will be doing 80+ hour weeks to get stuff done, I’m sure. I’m getting too old for this kind if schedule.

I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.

Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc)

And people wonder WHY I complain about History/Art History periodization. Note how much overlap there is to the above “eras”, and how many exceptions and extensions there are to these categories.

Oh, and by the way…

Because you wouldn’t want to be historically inaccurate.
