Here are a few places to stop today around the blgosphere if you are a Shimerian -- and want to see some Shimeriana:
1. At blog.shimer.edu Maria Gomez has an entry about interning at Haymarket Books. My view is that all academic types, and thus all Shimerians, have a fantasy about working in a bookstore. (I did in my youth, and worked in a place in Harper Court in Hyde Park for a while.) And Maria is, like some of us, actively pursuing that fantasy! Her's her post.
2. In case you are not paying attention and believe everything Shimer is about Shimer College, try this site, and learn about a family named Shimer, and a connection to the town in which Cinderella Gregory died. (And from which this blogger came!). As far as I can tell, this is one of those bloggish coincidences and has absoltuely nothing to do with Shimer College. But, you never know.
3. I am a fan of Historypins, and there is a channel devoted to Shimer College. Hurrah (and I suspect we all know who did that!). Click away and enjoy the view(s).
