I'm so glad we have him in custody, assuming it is him.
"But Bliss, why do you need to go all the way to Oxford to study the Fantasists? Can't you do that at home?"
Setting aside the obvious point that Oxford University employs some of the world's premier minds in literary studies, and that the fantasists to be studied are themselves from Oxford and therefore there is a unique history and perspective to be had... yes, I suppose I COULD read the fantasists at home, dredge my way through research materials, and construct my own knowledge nets among it.
But going to Oxford for a semester isn't just about the coursework (though that is in itself rather singular, honestly) - it's about the change in location, geographic and mental. I'll not be sequestered inside Wadham College for the entirety of my trip. On the contrary, I have discovered that the Roof Shark (properly known as the Headington Shark, or as Untitled 1986 is in fact IN Oxford. It is something that came up in my Modern Literary Theory class as an example of architectural Postmodernism, as we went through architectural styles as examples of theory movements.
Send Bliss Not Bombs - I assure you, I won't jump the shark! ;)

On the other hand... I'm tried.
I have nothing of worth to share.
Bs bs bs bs!
Time to be bright and shiny for a warm fun Friday :)
- The Purple GuysSystem Administrator, 2012 - present
I am also a wife and mother. I enjoy spending time with my family. I hold the title of network engineer at The Purple Guys. I love Astronomy and Physics and hope to learn more of the field, even if just to be a groupie. I enjoy reading mysteries and sci-fi, as well as drawing manga, and doing creative writing/poetry/songs. I love music, and am slowly coming out of the closet for being a metal-head. I enjoy playing games such as World of Warcraft, I did beta for Rift, and even spent some time in Aion. I am currently aspiring to write a non-fiction book about something I am very passionate about in which I feel that awareness and change needs to happen. I will not go into more detail, but for anyone who is close to me, feel free to ask. Overall, I am a passionately creative, heavy-metal, nerd.

Science/Scientists- This is for all of my astronomy and physic updates. I'm a wannabe astronomer and hope to be able to learn enough to carry on intelligent conversation. You will see me share news and updates in this area. This circle gets the most updates.
Writers- I am writing a persona novel, almost a documentary. I would like to connect with other writers with updates, etc. If you were in my NaNo circle, you are now in my writers circle.

Foodies- I cook for my family a lot, and I love showing off some of my homemade or thrifty recipes. I'll post a pic, descibe its scrumptiousness, and if you want the recipe, just ask :)
My life as a parent- AHH!!!- Bragging, ranting, blood, sweat, and tears, etc. I may give advice but will mostly be asking for it. HELP ME!! AHH!!!
