In other news dinner was fabulous and free (woohoo)!
I wore earrings tonight for the first time in two years.
So anyway, part of the audio-post was reading "George Crabbe" by Edwin Arlington Robinson. For those who don't know, Crabbe was a Romantic poet who has kind of dipped into obscurity. The poem is especially odd because it seems that Robinson foretold his own criitcal fate in talking about the dismissal of Crabbe.
Anyway, along with "Miniver Cheevy" (which is my absolute favorite)and "Reuben Bright" (which I also like very much) George Crabbe is among my favorite of Robinson's poems.
