I have finished The Difference Engine and must echo Kara's reaction of 'Errr- what?' Maybe if I knew more of the period and its figures I might be blown away, or just amused, by the alt.hist aspect; but as a narrative with a plot, it was a tad lacking.

However, this morning I discovered missing mitten under the front porch table. No idea how it came to be there, but now I have a pair and my hands are toasty warm again.

Otherwise I ache severely from walking everywhere in boots and (possibly) *not* working eight consecutive hours a day in Babies (bodies are weird that way.) So shall have epsom bath and curl up with a good book and sleep in tomorrow (ha ha) which I didn't get to do Monday or Tuesday.

Yeah, that is 100% the way I felt about it. :/

Sorry you are aching :( :( :( I hope you feel better soon.

Not sure what the burbling blurbs were on about. I mean, sectionsof it were fascinating, but the thing didn't hang together as an entty.

Thank you. Epsom salts cure everything. Didn't use them last night, and see what happened? ^_^

No early phone calls would help. Let's pray for telephone silence.

I didn't have a doubt that you would fine it. (You were so certain you brought it back) It may have just slipped and fallen and sometime one can't just see for looking. (Whatever that means but the Brits say it a lot! ^_^)

Like I nearly lost my camera yesterday ... but I wasn't actually too worried as it was gone so quick and where I was it could only have been picked up accidentally by someone I knew ... and it was! ^_^ Downside is of course now I have to arrange to pick it up. But I'm happy for it not to be lost at all.

Wishing you a most relaxing day indeed. *hug*

(OK, LJ, *don't* email me comments.)

We have two staff at work who are forever forgetting their cameras when they leave. It's something about those machines that eludes the memory circuits.People don't forget their cell phones, you notice.

I did get it back ... a Tolkien Dwarf picked it up. HUbby says it's because they are filchers and cannot help themselves. ^_~

Ahahaha you'd be surprised at the number of times my mobile has been forgot. Then again ... I don't have the relationship with my phone that many others do, fortunately. I'm quite happy to be phoneless sometimes. Again, hubby says its my subconscious trying to get away from it.
