I just went through every drawer in the house trying to find my tape measure.
I mean logically not every everywhere, or I'd have found it, unless I somehow threw it out somewhen.
But everywhere I could think of.

Next time I am going to buy two and put one in my handbag and one in the sewing kit as all logic suggests I intended.

But for right now I have none
and so no idea which of the lovely dagger pattern waistcoat sizes I need.

Boo.

But I know which colors I need. All. And not just because they're all black. This time I will have black and red and purple and when fashion unaccountably fails to provide dagger print waistcoats in the future I will still be able to make these last for ages.


And I did discover a still sealed snack stash that, judging by the sell by dates, I packed somewhat before the last time I visited the UEA library. Which was before I left college. Which was in 2013.

So that's a useful and cleanly bit of searching.

Albeit somewhat overdue.



And my UEA library book bag contained several smaller bags and a spare pair of dancing shoes, so that'll be handy.

... how is it I own so much Stuff but not the Stuff I am looking for whenever I look for it?



Ah well, steady progress, that'll do eventually.

Just finished reading the last story in this month's Analog.
Plaisir D'Amour, John Alfred Taylor.
It... seems very old school to me, and I was unsurprised to find the author started reading Analog when it was Astounding.
It's about a sociologist studying a mining ship full of genetically altered humans. He falls in love with a woman with four hands and knows it's doomed from the start.

Analog so far is readable, but not wow this month.
There was plenty I liked, but I had to go check the contents page to remember that, because nothing grabbed me and stuck around.

Still, plenty of readable stories and some good bits is plenty to get out of a magazine. I shall see what next issue turns up.
