this book is giving me fits.

I have to revise something. I don’t have to do it now, because it’s not structural for the book, but rather for the series. But the damned book is giving me fits, and I wish to hell it wasn’t.

We had a quiet day today, only going to the Citadel again to do some souvenir shopping. I ended up with a bunch of pottery, which is really my favorite thing for mementos. :)

At the local bakery today I encountered an American woman speaking increasingly loudly, in English, to the staff. “Spoons? Do you have SPOONS? WELL THEN HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO EAT THIS?”

Well, you embarrassing excuse for a countryman, you could have bought something that didn’t require goddamned utensils, if you didn’t have any of your own.

I did my best to order everything in French after that. Given that I learned French from Gambit, this … went slightly better than you might expect, actually.

I have gotten a Fitbit. I forget if I’ve mentioned that, but anyway, I quite like it. If you’ve got one and use the Fitbit site and want another fitness friend, you can send me a friend request at cemurphyauthor at gmail dot com (I refuse to connect it to Facebook).

  1. I’ve never heard of Fitbit, but after checking out the website, it’s going to the top of my wish list. When I get one, I’ll friend you!

  2. When I travel out of the US I’m often mistaken for being Dutch…even when I mangle my tourist French or Spanish. It is the one situation I’m completely unpatriotic, because it is a compliment to not being that Ugly American Tourist.
    Hope the rest of your working vacation is awesome!
