Both manners of eating and sleeping are of great interest to us. Just recently I finished the audio course, Food: A Culinary Cultural History. And despite the ubiquity of electricity I’ve managed to—or rather my body has stubbornly maintained—a pattern of first and second sleep. It always fascinates me to see references to this in literature…

“Woman, what are you doing? The servants are already after their second sleep!” I read that years in a story written in 1901, astonishingly enough, but I cannot recall the title of the work… I think this is great fun, I do not understand how others can find the honest pursuit of the narrative of human history boring or pedantic. —Anatolij

I had no idea they made a new Carmen Sandiego cartoon. When I saw her design in the thumbnail I was disappointed—“Hey, she’s not as cool as I remember!” That’s more a reflection of my own attractions than of the quality of the new Netflix show. They “diminished” something I liked (Tolly says it’s the shoulders…), so gut reaction.

I haven’t seen the show, but from what you wrote, I do like the spin. Sounds like Saint Tail. As for historical time capsules, in 2010 we were still using Geography textbooks that floated the idea of a European Union. Gotta love the impoverishment of American public education. —Ansel

the history of food (and all manner of normal stuff people did) is of great interest to me as well, but I can only overpromise so much writing! one day perhaps

as for the sandiego cartoon, I liked it but it's nothing incredible or anything like that, just a fun little show
