We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

One of Maudie's odd little foibles, besides sticking labels on anything that doesn't move so that you know what it is, is a habit of finishing people's sentences with them. For instance, Maisie's talking Maudie through one of today's admin. problems:
Maisie: "So the problem is that they're asking us to pay the invoice but we haven't received the"

Together: "train ticket."

Maisie: "And I can't go paying invoices unless we've received"

Together: "the goods."
It's a really peculiar little tic and reminds me most of "The Desponds," the family of miserable northern sociopaths in Les Dawson's old radio series.
