AND AND AND Q brought me a SF book to cheer me up and ALSO a few sheets with it that outlined what has happened in the series of the book so I would know where the book fits in...... !!!!!! THANK YOU Q! That was SO sweet of you. (Seriously expected you to look like Matt Smith (because of the avatar
) Q, if your writing is in any form as good as your "quick synopsis of the book series" I can't wait to read your published books)
It was just an impulse I had last night. You'd been through a lot lately, I had a couple of surplus copies of A Civil Campaign
, which is a romantic comedy (and science fiction intrigue story as well), and I thought, well, Del may need a laugh and maybe something new...and because that book is relatively late in the Vorkosigan Saga, I printed off a primer that I had written for my mother so that she could understand where the story had been.
BTW, my current avatar is NOT Matt Smith. It's Adrian Edmondson, specifically a screenshot of him as Eddie from Bottom
. The sequence I got the screenshot from is this one. The moment is at about 49 seconds in
. It's the look on Eddie's face that sells it. Very funny, but not for those who hate violent slapstick.
For the record, I look more like the mutant offspring of Gareth Thomas and Neil Gaiman.

Uh, yeah. It had a certain inevitability. But we also discussed Discworld and other reading material.
Four minutes? That's ages! What if I get bored? I need a television, a couple of books. Anyone for chess? Bring me knitting.
