Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Syndrome, o rly

It’s so strange not being in the office. Not having a routine. Not starting my day with a barrage of emails and phone calls and greetings from colleagues, no morning trip out for tea-and-a-scone.

It’s relaxing and one has this pleasant sense of freedom. Now, how is that conducive to getting anything done?

And I have many things to ‘get done’. I’ve done my critiques for this week and I’ve read Remains of the Day, but I can’t follow the course notes on it. For example, “Primacy of secondary characters, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern syndrome. Political and social implications?” I don’t get the reference. I see Googling ahead. Hurrah for the Interweb, that’s all I can say, or it’d be a day in the library for me.

Ah. They are minor characters from Hamlet, brought to the fore by Tom Stoppard. http://www.sff.net/people/mberry/rosen.htp
