I’m watching Dames, a 1934 Busby Berkeley musical. The dance numbers make me think that Berkeley would have loved fractals and playing with them.

I just got the newest edition of Glorious One-Pot Meals. (My spiral-bound version is from several years back.) Man! has she added a lot of recipes. I suggest that this is one book to buy new rather than secondhand.

Sorry for light blogging today, but I stayed up last night and developed a first outline of the book. Quite a relief—the story has so many strands, I couldn’t figure out how to present it. And this morning I slept in—I’ve been waking up at 4:00 a.m. and having trouble getting back to sleep. I guess my unconscious was at work on the outline, but now it seems in pretty good shape, so I can get some sleep again.

The pleasure of a smooth face

with 5 comments

It’s very nice to get rid of the stubble. Skipping the shave for the entire weekend is a bit too much for me.

Everything worked as it should: a great lather from the Dovo, thanks in part to the Rooney, then the Hoffritz Slant Bar smoothed things nicely with just three easy passes. A splash of Tabac, and I took The Wife’s car in for service (including a manufacturer’s recall to replace the water pump, thus saving $525).
