(08:40:36) I've always considered myself moderately erudite, but the word "dissimulation" appearing on @superalora's spellings today had me mystified!

(12:47:58) RT @ShakespeareSong: Alas, firstly; allow me to taketh a self portrait.

(12:51:09) I am fairly sure I heard someone's mobile phone with "Blurred Lines" as the ringtone. Baffling.

(23:11:15) Not quite enough achieved tonight.. the usual Monday evening gym, and then watching the end of Moone Boy. Soldering and Photoshop will wait.

(23:12:04) To bed, then... goodnight!
