Daily Commute March 4 2011 002

Tea today: Tindhari Estate Darjeeling FTGFOP1 CL. At least the first cup. Then I'm switching to Chun Mee
Teacup today: Shadow Unit

Today's Daily Commute photo guest stars MY BREAKFAST.

Plans to make chili and anadama bread* and watch the Benjamin Bagby Beowulf tonight with The Jeff, so I need to get as much novella under my wheels this morning/afternoon as possible. Lost most of the morning to errands (prescription pickup, you know the drill) but got some writing done in bed before roustout and some more at the pharmacy.

This novella seems to want to be written to KT Tunstall and Garbage, which makes perfect sense for a story set in Bengaluru in 2050 or thereabouts...

All right. Words. I leave you to your internets, Internet.

*Like Boston Brown Bread, I suspect this started off as a thrifty New England way to use up the scraps.


My old yankee cookbook claims that the bread recipe was obtained from a long-suffering husband. When asked to name his bread recipe, he said "For Anna, damn her." It's good stuff.

There's three or four versions of that story, all probably apocryphal. My favorite is the tombstone one.

"Anna was a beautiful Bride:
Anna, damn her, up and Died."

All we know for sure is it comes from somewhere near Gloucester.
Pineapple and cottage cheese?
Agreed-- his performance really is excellent.

Kindle tyop in Grail

At 62%, Cynric is fencing with Danlaw. "She smile now, as if confident she had one."

One? Won.

There's a random hyphenated word earlier in the book, I misremember where...

Re: Kindle tyop in Grail

Telling me this accomplished absolutely nothing, you realize.

Re: Kindle tyop in Grail

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to offend. Please delete, as I can't from Blackberry.

Re: Kindle tyop in Grail

Oh, you didn't offend. But there's absolutely nothing an author can do about a typo in a published book, except for when there's to be a format change that occasions new page proofs, such as the mass market paperback being issued.
