I have been remonstrated with about my silence, so a brief recap of my exceedingly unexciting life over the last few days:
Saturday morning, grouchychris invited me to breakfast on the inaugural waffles from his new waffle iron. Waffles from scratch, no less - more impressive by the fact that they involved beating egg whites until stiff by hand . Very tasty.
Sunday in part consisted of a trip to Barnes & Noble to use a gift card. New York Times Crossword Puzzle calendars. Also, much later, retrieving surlyben from the airport upon his return from the (further-than-Portland) south.
In between I've been indulging in an orgy of Dorothy L. Sayers novels: Have His Carcase, Busman's Honeymoon, Gaudy Night.
