Carelessness

So, um, I'm supposed to be going to LC's wedding this weekend in Manchester. Knowing that it would be hard to find accommodation over the bank holiday weekend, I booked a B&B before I left for America (that is five weeks ago). I wrote down the details of my booking on a piece of paper. You can see where this is going, right? I've lost the piece of paper, and now I have no memory of where on earth I've booked. I'm trying desperately to reproduce the searches I did to find this B&B and I'm completely drawing a blank.

Also, I have somehow managed to delete my entire bookmark file from Mozilla. I have no idea how I did this, maybe pressed the wrong key combination at the wrong moment? This is a minor pain and most of it can be recreated with google and duplicated versions of it elsewhere. But just, argh.

Misc notes

I never found the piece of paper with my crucial information. But I was able to reconstruct the searches I did to look for a B&B and identify the correct place where I do, in fact, have a booking.

Last night, someone I'm very fond of but whom I hadn't talked to in ages messenged me. This made me very happy indeed.

I need a few more icons, I think. One to cover general geekiness, as opposed to linguistics- and biology-related geekiness. I think one for pretty things and culture, other than the alphabets one I use for that purpose at the moment, and possibly a separate one for music. I could consider one for travelling and tourism, but it would probably end up being a picture of a specific place which isn't really what I'm after. And one for talking about food.

For the last category, monanotlisa took a photo of the high tea we (Mona, darcydodo and I) enjoyed in San Francisco. She made me an über professional icon which I'm not using because I don't like looking at pictures of me in profile. But instead I made this icon from her photo. Comments and constructive criticism welcome.

Also, I've put up reviews of Neil Gaiman: American Gods and Bruce Sterling: Zeitgeist.
