It begins. . . .

Well hello, boys and girls!

Here it is, the inaugural post. I'll be posting on this little corner of the internet during my upcoming year on exchange at the University of Bristol, letting the cool cats know about the hips and haps.

One of my dearest friends also suggested a quite topping idea this weekend while we were luxuriating on my dock at the cottage, which would tie together my love of tedious historical conversation, trivia, and "Can't we just talk to each other like friends would?". She suggested that before, during, and after my sojourn abroad I could take suggestions of interesting historical people, facts, time periods, trends from everyone out there in home-land, research them a tad, present them in a, hopefully, amusing fashion. You know how I often hate public history? Well then, I'll create some of my own.

So, that's the purpose of my little Beyond-Boundingly Forward space. Hope you enjoy.


Your friend Lina

P.S. The title of this missive depository comes from an "A Bit of Fry and Laurie" sketch, so I suppose all credit goes to them.

  1. you are exciting. however, while maintaining a blog is all fine and dandy, it does not in any replace your actual presence in montreal. which is where i wish you were going to be next year. even though Bristol will be great and everything.
