So we got back to her home very well-stocked: comfortably fed, prepared for Thanksgiving with her parents, and a little bit warmer all around and, for me at least, braced against the California Plague through a minor clothing purchase. bunny_hugger went to bed early, hoping to sleep off the Plague, and that worked nicely as that gave me the chance to prepare a little surprise.

Trivia: The first academic position held by Georg Riemann, who would prove the mathematical self-consistency of non-Eucliedean spaces, was a lectureship at the University of Göttingen which he gained in 1853 and which paid no salary.

Currently Reading: 3 To The Highest Power, Editor William F Nolan. Novellas by Ray Bradbury, Theodore Sturgeon, and Chad Oliver. And yet it's a Chad Oliver story I've already read. (Grand story, though, still, despite the non-technology natives are better than humans motif.) And I didn't know Ray Bradbury was a fan of then not-quite-so-old-time radio series Vic and Sade; he's got great taste, though.
