Telynor here aka That Old Bat in NY

Post by Telynor » Thu August 28th, 2008, 5:04 am

Hi all! Very glad to see the list back up, and going strong. I have to say, I was sweating through withdrawals while there wasn't anything to connect with my reading friends.

Voracious reader and reviewer (go to http://www.epinions.com/user-telynor to see what I think about things), and game for nearly anything. Artist who lives in the bucolic and occansionally overrun lower Hudson valley in NY. Very fond of good food, cats (and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels), travel, and period films. Will yak on endlessly on nearly anything that takes my fancy.

Somewhat former SCA member -- any other Society for Creative Anachronism members out there?

When I finally go, I intend to haunt the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the rest of Eternity, alternating with the V&A...

Hi Tely! Fondnesses for cats and spaniels is right up my alley. Travel and good food are too when I can afford them. Good to see you here!

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Good food, cats, travel, and period films... couldn't have said it better!! Especially the period films. I find a lot of them are made abroad and can be found in the foreign films section.

Welcome back. Well, I don't think I was having sweating attacks but I did feel like something was missing from my life...
