Yesterday

Yesterday was spent doing this:


Yes, we made sushi. It is not as easy as one might imagine. But if you concentrate, take your time, pay attention to the instructions given in this excellent book, you can produce something like this:


Well, to be fair, they’re the ones my girlfriend made. Mine weren’t as pretty or, um, able to not fall apart. They were delicious.

Today has been a wee bit irritating.
Before I could make a start editing my ms as per the fabulous Anne Brooke’s suggestions, I had to sort out the random large chunks of text that Word had decided to convert into italics. (This involved deleting the Italics Style, creating a new one, and adding every single instance manually.) No logical explanation for it at all – I can only apologise to Anne – it must have made reading it a real nuisance.
Anyway, that’s done now so I can concentrate on the actual words, rather than what they look like.

    Wow, they look amazing! My laptop doesn’t have Word. It has Open Office which does weird things with text and is very annoying

    Thanks Lane! I think any word processing programme that thinks it knows best is very annoying. You have my sympathy. Aw, thanks Anne. Definitely better without italics. Definitely.Nik

    Seeing your startled expression in the photo, Nik, I guessed you’d been snapped rolling yourself a super-sized cigarette packed with illegal substances.I’m glad to know you were actually going for the healthier sushi option.

    Ha! Rest assured, Lexi, there are ni illegal substances in my house. I’m far too sensible for anything like that!Nik
