The Wellington Impact
January 16, 2012 in Blogs
In today’s installment in the Examiner temporal anomalies series we examine the impact Blackadder has on history when his time machine has an impact on the Duke of Wellington–quite literally. Blackadder Back and Forth part 7: Wellingtons suggests that this would have been significant, but not in the way expressed in the movie.
Meanwhile, I have completed the draft of a short series on Watchmen, and posted the anticipated episode titles to the index site.
Friday we had an interesting meeting at a diner whose bar crowd was too loud for our preference and whose prices reflected the fact that they drew a clientelle there for the nostalgia. Most of Collision was in attendance, plus a few family members of the members. John, the drummer I had hoped to introduce to the rest who chose the location, did not appear and has not been in contact with me since; I am again beginning to worry about him. Hopefully it’s nothing serious.
We have illness in the house, and already my effort to get my work completed has raised ire that I should be able to skip work and attend the sick; but Monday is a bad day for that, so here I am.
