The first blogger!

The redoubtable Englishman Samuel Pepys' diary from the 1600s.

And we think we have problems-he had the Black Death to worry about!


  1. "Up betimes, and knowing that my Lord Sandwich is come to towne"

    Oh. So that is how they worded "ate a burger" back then.

  2. Very good!

    I laughed at that one.

  3. Do you mind if I post on this too, and link back to you?

    "Lord Sandwich grumbled unseemly and took up residence in my cellar"

    Uhh. Sam, better get some Pepto-Bismol.
