It has to be admitted that this thread title is better than the one I tried to bring into being.

A busy day here at work! As well as selling a book or two we have discovered that the legendary Shalott in Alfred Lawn Tennison's poem is, at least according to Geoffrey of Monmouth, Guildford.

Korean Sandwich - Toasted bun, shaved smoked brisket, lettuce, kimchi, gobuchang, Korean BBQ sauce, cheese sauce and green peppers. Filthy but yum.

Legendary Shallot.

To be fair, Geoffrey wasn’t noted for his accuracy. He probably meant Swindon.

Nobody means Swindon.

I’ve been in bed with bastard labyrinthitis all day today.

'Tennyson'.

You'll be saying Wimbledon next.

It was a joke from 1066 and All That, MacP, probably misremembered.

Actually it seems to be Joyce who came up with the 'Lawn'. Stately plump Buck Mulligan, probably.

Macpaddy - 16 Aug 2021 17:46:23 (#18 of 2017)

Ah. Damn I did 'misremember.'

Hope you're better soon, Holly

I accidentally kicked FosterMog up the bum, and she is now exacting revenge by sleeping on my shorts and throwing cat fluff around at an alarming rate. I may have to re-think my evening plans.

WHOLESOME EVENING NEWS: I'm working on that jigsaw puzzle again.

Cordelia - 16 Aug 2021 19:50:20 (#22 of 2017)

I had to clean and tidy when I got home as I have a viewing tomorrow. Annoying. He better bloody buy it!

What is your wholesome jigsaw picture?

Sabacious - 16 Aug 2021 19:54:56 (#24 of 2017)

I've been doing some super-resolution confocal laser-scanning microscopy followed by a spot of deconvolution to fill the afternoon. Fun times.

Cordelia - 16 Aug 2021 19:56:48 (#25 of 2017)

The latter thing I understand. Confocal though?
