One of my RSS feeds is Samuel Pepys' diary, which is being posted on a day to day matching basis by a website. Some days it is all politics and great events, but some days, well...

About three o'clock this morning I waked with the noise of the rayne, having never in my life heard a more violent shower; and then the catt was lockt in the chamber, and kept a great mewing, and leapt upon the bed, which made me I could not sleep a great while.

...it's clear that things haven't changed that much, in cats and humans, from Restoration England to Livejournal today.

Doesn't that just *sound* exactly like a typical livejournal post? I'm pretty sure I've posted nearly that exact one!

It's a pretty fun read most days. Nice detailed look at life at the time.

It certainly made me laugh!
