Beware the pooping palm pigeons (aka rats) of LA.
So I never really liked Palm trees (at least, not the pretentious sort we end up with in California), and I don’t like rats that live in palm trees and leave splattered droppings on the sidewalks that the palm trees hang over. Apparently I’ve got both here in LA. :/ Oh well, there is lots of other good stuff here, like awesome Korean food and work so that I can afford food.
I am a recent PhD in Scandinavian Studies. Just spent 2 1/2 years teaching courses in Old Norse literature, history, and mythology, + Scandinavian Folklore at UC Berkeley, and most recently a Visiting Professor at Gustavus Adolphus college in MN (and now crossing my fingers for another position soon). Also a published poet (small time still), with recent pieces in Ideomancer and Everyday Poets. I've started a blog (Vikings, Books, Etc) where I've been writing book reviews, posting pictures of vikings, and other things. Working with iPad art programs and now with a Bamboo tablet and Photoshop elements (still learning how digital art works). In addition to DeviantArt, here are my websites:|
