1. I finished Blackout. Aieeeee! It's the first part of a two-part book! It's a bigger cliffhanger than "Is Snape Evil"! How how how will I be able to wait until October to find out what happens? Is Mr. Dunworhty OK?

2. Here are my Blackout musings, under a cut in case anyone else is still reading the magnificence that is this book.

- Does anyone else think that Marjorie, Polly's friend from the department store, is a historian? She came out of the hospital not once but twice to check on Polly, plus she was in an abandoned building and didn't explain why when Polly asked her. I know she hasn't *told* Polly that she's a historian, but I'm imagining a scenario where Marjorie is from a different future, or a different lab, or something, and either doesn't know that Polly is also from the future or knows but is part of some kind of secret rescue team.
- What happened when Polly was at V-E day? At first I thought I had missed something, but then I read that little chapter and realized that it had very little detail. In fact, you can't even tell for sure that it *is* Polly because it never uses names. At the end of the book she's really worried about it, but why?
- What is Mr. Dunworthy doing at St. Paul's in 1950?
- Does Colin suspect something about Polly's drop being unlikely to work in the first part of the book, or is he just worried about her because he has a crush on her? My hypothetical money is on the first option. Sure, he'd be worried about her if he had a crush on her, but not just because she's going to the past. He's the one who's so convinced that the Crusades would be safe!

3. HtB went to observe the police dispatch office last night. He had a great time. He's thinking about applying for a job as a dispatcher if one comes open. It's four months of training, but you get hired before you get trained, so he would be getting paid during that time. Now there just has to be an opening.

4. Got Dad's car back from Lady Friend and over to his house for the estate sale yesterday after aikido. HtB generously drove it back, all tobacco-smelling as it was. He got it detailed before he drove it, but it only seemed to add air-freshener smell on top of the tobacco smell. No one but a smoker is going to want this car.

5. DtB's Lady Friend really really wanted Dad to go to a Super Bowl party with her. I tried my best to find a way for this to happen, but Dad has gotten much weaker and less mobile. He took a header on Friday trying to get himself from the toilet to his wheelchair and ended up with a black eye and sore ribs. I knew HtB and I had no business trying to get Dad into or out of a car, so Lady Friend said she could get her step-grandson, who we will call The Thug, to do it. In vain did HtB and I try to explain that it is not just a matter of being able to lift a certain amount of weight, but being able to move DtB without hurting him or throwing your back out, and that The Thug did not have the necessary skills. I tried to hire one of the CNA's who was off duty to go get Dad to the game and back, to no avail. I had resigned myself to letting Dad go off with Lady Friend and The Thug if he wanted to, but The Thug was not available. *sigh*

6. I started feeling sick last night and thought it was just because I was tired. I slept thirteen hours and woke up with a really bad cough. So far today I have had inhaler, allergy meds, Advil, and cough syrup. I really hope that I'm better tomorrow.

I hope everyone had great weekends! Olympics start Friday, yay!

Thank you! There are way too many people already out at work. I'd hate to have to stay home when I'm already supposed to be filling in for people. I never get sick at times when I *don't* have a desk shift...

*hugs* I skipped all your musings on the book, because I didn't want to spoil myself--care to give me a quick blurb? Perhaps I shall look it up in the library.

Poor DtB and Lady Friend! I'm glad it all worked out for the best with The Thug, though!

I hope you're feeling better!
