What is it about cell phones in libraries? Why, unless you are a world renowned surgeon, who may be called upon to operate in a moment's notice (which begs the question of why you are in the library in the first place, really) do you need to have the cell phone on as people try to work around you? I particulary hate the people who leave their cell phone on, then answer it with 'oh, I'm in the library, I'll have to walk outside' and then walk out talking happily. Because they obviously know they are doing wrong and still do it. Even worse are the people who take the call, then wander off to the window and have their conversation, like moving five feet makes it okay. Bastards, the lot of them.

My mood was not improved by massive amounts of reading on the sad condition of Greek women in antiquity, which has given me all sorts of useless remedies to fix your wandering womb (you really don't want to know). Living in Athens in the classical period for a woman seems akin to living under the taliban, but without turbans and public stonings. Go, cradle of democracy! Your men were free, and I guess that's all that counts.

This cranky post has been brought to you by the combined efforts of Aristotle, Aeschylus, and Hesiod.
