November 4th, 2021 – 1,135

I always laugh on this day, because it reminds me of an I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue round on Historical Headlines, where Tim takes a swipe at the Guardian. The event is the Gunpowder Plot: “The Guardian: ‘Remember Remember, the Fourth of November'”. Being a dumb kid I sometimes forgot that the 4th was stuck in my head because of Clue and would get the date wrong. I’ve been thinking a lot about what was going through my mind when I was a kid these last two days, though I’ll admit not so much what my thoughts on radio comedy or gunpowder plots were. Not sure I’m ready to talk about it here though.

HOR is still going well, and I cut 400 words from WHT today so I am quite happy about that. I think the edit is going to take a lot longer than my optimistic ‘two weeks’ prediction a short while ago, but that’s ok, I’m still making progress. And more than that, I’m enjoying editing again. Can’t put a price on that; that’s good because if there was a cost, I’d have to forgo it to get my “Spend-Free Day” XP.
