We have to do it, apparently, there's a law.

http://m.newyorker.com/online/blogs/books/2011/03/hug-a-medievalist-day.html

Well, maybe not a law but internet tradition demands it!

So, Medievalist... this one is for you *hug* :)

Hugs to Medievalist!

I'm just confused the poster didn't get:


What do Scandanavian Fisherman play to accompany their odes to Odin? The Lutefisk!

I note that I am NOT the only medievalist on AW.

James D. Macdonald is one, though I suspect he no longer actively practices.

And there are at least five others.

Step up folks! Collect your hugs.

There's actually a huge overlap between Ph.D.s in medieval history, music, art or lit and the SCA.

Really huge.

To hug a medievalist one must use the proper font, size and colo(u)r:

I tried to hug Lisa once, but things got out of hand and we started making out: :e2kissy:

It's a moment I'll never forget. :heart:

Personally, I do prefer to hug Early Modernists and my personal Early Modernist does get snitty when I go round hugging experts from other periods... but I did get to hug a medievalist (well, an Anglo Saxon specialist) last weekend while she was wearing a regency gown.

No, this is not an April fool... I was also wearing Regency clothing.

Step up folks! Collect your hugs.

Since 1) I happen to love Medievalists, and 2) this hugging is directed at ALL Medievalists, I won't close the thread for being a shout-out to one member.

It's a technicality, I know... but I'm a Mod and I can do that.

:Hugs Medievalist and Uncle Jim and walks sedately out of thread:
