Yes, it seems it is possible to summarise a weekend in just a few lines, but you miss any details. Perhaps you'll hear one example, but not many. Nothing about discovering I've made number 30 in the lj top 40, or that Viv and I looked at the science fiction and fantasy book lists lexin published and pronounced them to be -woefully inadequate-. You might not ever hear that, if I didn't type more than the bare minimum. Sometimes I type lots, sometimes not. And someone has put a battery in the bedroom clock.
