This morning, I woke up and realised that the two fish tanks full of black and white fish in my bedroom were getting really full and the pipefish, especially, had gotten very out of hand. Also, a bunch of the goldfish (or possibly guppies?) were looking pregnant, again. I was wondering about the plausibility of putting pregnant fish on freecycle, when I realised Tim was still in bed, sleeping curled up under the duvet like a cat and he would (oh no!) be late for work and I started frantically trying to wake him (he was having none of it and continued to sleep).

Then it occurred to me that I didn't own a fish tank, and certainly wouldn't have it in my bedroom even if I did, and Tim had left to go to work, I distinctly remembered him getting up now I came to think about it. So I stopped trying to wake him up and just stroked him gently until he gently dissolved, like meringue into golden light, and I woke up for real.

In business matters, I have a few more Whores of Mensa #3. A few people expressed interest, but I didn't have any stock then. I've already asked over in jeremydennis but over here I can post polls!

You did, probably -- it was for sale there, but sold out and some people didn't get it.

There's a bit of an out of print problem going on with the first two. Are you coming down for spa w/end or couldn't you make it?

If it's one of the 2 middle weekends of October then I can make it. Otherwise not.

Fabulous line.

Re: Oh, also...
I see it as a mystical recipe - Stir the meringue until it disolves into the golden light. Or possibly a metaphor for life on my upbeat days - A sweet insubstantial thing gently disolving into golden light.
