Don't Quit Your Day Job

For fun, because it's Wednesday and there's a two-foot snowdrift on my driveway waiting for me to shovel it: ever wonder what Charlotte Bronte and Franz Kafka earned at their day jobs? Find out here (link stolen from GalleyCat).

And for you history buffs, check out Brian Thornton's weekly posting of bastards (yes, you read that right). Anticipating the release of his The Book of Bastards in August, he's posting a weekly profile of a bastard in history. Such fun, and a history lesson too--which is great for me, because I sort of flunked history.

Anyway. Off to brave the snow.


  1. Bet it's not too hard to come up with a few.

  2. On TV daily :-) The book sounds fun, though.
