One Impossibly Quick Note Before Breakfast

h1 August 1st, 2011 by jules

Mmm. Coffee.I’m out of town. May not be posting for a few days.

Seven apologies before breakfast.

But please carry on without me. Um, in the immortal words of Linda Richman, Ralph Fiennes is spelled neither rafe nor fines. Discuss. Alternately: The jelly bean is neither made of jelly, nor is it a bean. Discuss.

Until later….

(Where ever I may be at this exact moment, I very likely have a cup of coffee in hand. Hence, the image, though that coffee pictured there really needs some half-and-half. Quite possibly, a drop or two of Baileys Irish Cream. Also, I don’t think I’m capable of doing a post without an image. Discuss.)

  1. I am not certain Bailey’s Irish Cream is either Irish or cream, but that’s another story altogether.


  2. Hah! I was just going to say what Lady Jane said.

    Well, I will instead bemoan the expense of Jelly Belly jellybeans in this country, and the fact that people here eat jelly babies, which are oddly neither a.) jelly nor b.) babies.

    It’s a strange world.

  3. Hope all is well.
    Have fun! Be safe!

  4. On, How to prounounce ‘Ralph Fiennes’ (or He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Phonetically-Said):

  5. jelled sugar and water in the shape of a little bean = jelly bean. my favorite brand & flavor are jelly belly’s watermelon…i can’t get enough of them. i pick them all out of the big costco container!

    ralph fiennes — i liked him best in “maid in manhattan”

  6. Hope you are having a great time in NYC! If/when you return to your new favorite city, let me know. If the traffic gods are smiling, we are only half an hour from the city- it would be fun to get together and talk books!

  7. Thanks, all.

    Stacey, that would have been GREAT. Thanks. Maybe next time. This was a rather whirlwind trip.

  8. If I come to your house and ply you with doughnuts, will you tell me who won the competition? Please please please. Just so curious. At least with Caldecott, it’s just two days of secrecy. 🙂

  9. Robin, but then I’d have to kill you after ingesting the doughnut, and we can’t have a Robin-less world.

    Wow, that was all based on the oft-muttered “if I tell you, I’ll have to kill you” that everyone always says, but it came out sounding mighty violent and murderous.

    One of the Society folks really did say they’d have winners up by week’s end. I’m thinking any time now. I’ve been too busy scrambling to get caught up on everything else (if you’re reading this, ANYONE, and I owe you an email, I AM SORRY) to look at the site today, but I guess it’s not up yet. [TIME INTERLUDE]. Just looked. Nope, not up yet. But any time, I’m sure.

  10. It’s a bean!
