Well.

Jus took the marked-up PDFs to work yesterday. Mark was very grateful, and the corrections were made, and the revised PDFs are the ones that will be printed. That makes me happy.

I keep returning in my mind to the discussion griffen and I had a week or so ago about whether writing's an art or a craft.

Today I go to see my new orthopaedics person.... no, no surely, not! I can't believe 'orthopaedics'. I'd have to construe that as from orthos, 'straight', and pais, 'boy'. I don't wanna be a straight boy! Surelysurely it should be spelled 'orthopedics', from orthos and pous, 'straight foot'. Surely. Lexicogremlins, fail me not! but I look at the letter and see 'ORTHOPAEDIC DEPT, BLOCK B, C&W'.

Oh well, straight boys here I come... I guess I'd better go buy some beer :)
