It has returned

So the battery and memory card I ordered for my camera are here now, and — wonder of wonders — they both are exactly right.  Since I have very little clue about what I’m doing, and ordered them as best I could online, I’m actually kind of shocked that they both work.  And I’m perhaps even more shocked that my camera survived a four-storey fall, lost its battery and memory card, but suffered no other ill effects – since it works perfectly.  Amazing.

And it’s amazing how lost I felt without it…

    You are an American now, so you have to learn to spell words like story the right way, without superfluous e’s.

    See, I don’t think that’s one of those British spelling things. I think the e is there to differentiate storey from story. And I’m stickeing to it.

  3. Jeff says:

    Merriam-Webster merely lists “storey” as a variant of “story.” Interesting etymology follows:

    “Middle English storie, from Medieval Latin historia narrative, illustration, story of a building, from Latin, history, tale; probably from narrative friezes on the window level of medieval buildings”

    Very interesting etymology. And not a British spelling.

  5. Jeff says:

    Tangentially related etymology: veranda is from Hindi.

    Boring! More updates, please.

    I agree. You appear to be suffering from blog fade.

    Yes, well – it’s been a crazy couple of weeks at work. More soon, I promise – I still have the tell the story about the piano and the guy’s house that we took apart…
