Mentioning that the first Blade Runner film was set in the "savage world" of November 2019 and asking if they think it is savage today, only for the younger ones to be mystified there was a 1982 Blade Runner film.

For anyone who remembers me tearing through the old place shouting "DONE, DONE, DONE!" after finishing my first novel ever and then clapping my hands, falling on the floor and then falling asleep... THAT WAS 12 YEARS AGO.

Was that one you did for the NaNoWriMo? Are you doing one this November? That's quite an accomplishment, Ollie. I seem to recall you drinking lots of diet soda, or am I mistaken?

I'm having fun with your grandkids, Geoff and I've never even seen a picture. ;D

Haha. So am I. I'll be with them tomorrow teaching the Blitzskrieg checkmate in 4 moves. It'll be fine with the 10-old but the younger one has moves best described as "Duck!"
