Good one!

I'm doin the happy grad dance .... I met with a prof today because I
want to learn cartography so I can map and correlate henna traditions
with drought(If you've heard the lecture, you'll know why this is so
crucial)(.. and then map with climmate, religion, economy, migrations,
wheat agriculture, polygyny, etc, etc, etc, ....its a way of applying
scientific rigor to henna so even arrogant primadonna boring middle
aged academic white men will stop and take notice). Anyway ... this
most excellent lady prof (the 13th woman to ever be certified as a
cartographer) is a firm believer that there is such a thing as
"women's geography" .... is very keen to help me map henna over the
next long haul. And .... remember hearing that the Salem witch trials
can be demonstrated to have been a real estate coup manufactured for
purpose of seizing women's property, and the subsequent demonstrations
that many of the European witch accusations and trials may have been
similar property seizures? This lady I met with today to talk about
mapping henna did the primary research and work on that! Oh baby I am
soooooooooooooo lucky! Nothing like having goddess drop a primo-prof
in your lap! Better than a bucket of gold!
