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.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.
