 Rincewind had grown up in Morpork. What a Morpork citizen liked to have on his side in a fight was odds of about twenty to one, but failing that a sockful of half-brick and a dark alley to lurk in was generally considered a better bet than any two magic swords you cared to name.

‘I’ll be off, then,’ he said.

‘Oook.’

‘To face who knows what dreadful perils,’ Rincewind added. ‘To lay down my life in the service of mankind—’

‘Eeek.’

‘All right, bipeds—’

‘Woof.’

‘—and quadrapeds, all right.’

He glanced at the Patrician’s jamjar, a beaten man. ‘And lizards,’ he added.

‘Can I go now?’

 ‘Pretty pointless, then. It may have struck you that I am not exactly gifted in the magical department? I mean, any duel is going to go on the lines of “Hallo, I’m Rincewind” closely followed by bazaam!’

 The trouble with gods was that if they didn’t like something they didn’t just drop hints, so common sense suggested that it was unwise to put the gods in a position where they had to decide.

Monday

So far today I have:

  • Done a significant amount of weeding and general garden maintenance.
  • Picked apples (this is the first time in 2-3 years that our tree has produced).
  • Made pastry crust.
  • Made body scrub.
  • Showered.
  • Done three loads of dishes.
  • Cut potatoes for french fries.
  • Made dog treats.
  • Made two apple/berry tarts (currently baking).
  • Cleaned bits and pieces here and there.
  • Did two loads of laundry.
  • Played two rounds of Command and Conquer 3 Kane’s Wrath over lunch.
  • Looked at some job posting sites for new jobs (I’m in the middle of looking at several more).
  • Drank LOTS of tea.
  • Ready many emails.

I still need to:

  • Keep looking at/for jobs.
  • Do two more loads of laundry (but it is getting stormy, so I may do those tomorrow).
  • Get gas, stop by the post office, and go to boxing.
  • Return some emails.
  • Queue tumblr stuff.
  • Take pictures of WIPs.
  • Make and eat dinner.
  • Clean off the dining room table.
  • Finish organizing the spare bedroom.
  • Prep stuff for a hike in the morning.
  • Shower after boxing.
  • Knit and/or spin a bit.

 ‘Er,’ he said. He waved his thin hands vaguely. ‘The world, you see, that is, the reality in which we live, in fact, it can be thought of as, in a manner of speaking, a rubber sheet.’ He hesitated, aware that the sentence was not going to appear in anyone’s book of quotable quotes.

 This is because the human brain is remarkably good at shutting out things it doesn’t want to know. His could currently have shielded a bank vault.

Every time I see one of these I things, I know that the person who wrote it obviously isn’t a cosmologist or quantum physicist.  Except maybe for a very loose definition of “accurate.”
