There I was, innocently eating a solitary breakfast (it's the mid-term break and everyone else was in bed) - when - BOOM! - an unsolicited Bright Idea shot into my head. Suddenly, I'm at the laptop, mini-Weetabix to one side, hastily typing away this bijou little insight of mine. So I only just had time for a shower, if I was going to get to work on time. Thanks, Ladies Morgan and Nairne. True friends, as I've been saying. I made it on time, anyway, and no thanks to the Subway for not having a single ticket machine OR credit-card machine in operation.
Anyway, that was it until I got back from the colloquium this evening. Back to Chapter 5, where I got the new paragraph comparing Ladies M & N, into the appropriate place, and then to Chapter 4 to clarify another point that had been preying on my mind. Well, I say 'clarify'. Actually, what I did was confess that the authorship of certain prefaces wasn't as clear-cut as one would think. Authorial honesty is a great thing. (I would ask Lady N to back me up, but she's in no position to do so, and I won't ask her to compromise her already compromised position.)
