I think I may need to stop this blog... I just noticed that the last post I published was my 144th. We only did up to 12 times tables at school, and since that is the result of 12x12 it is the biggest number I know. It sort of feels like New Years Eve 1999, when we all sat around wondering if our computers would work when we woke up, and if they didn't work then how could we warn people further along the national date line.
To be honest, that last part is a bald faced lie. I actually spent NYE in 1999 being slightly raucous in a rented mansion by a river, smoking cigars, wearing a silver sash that was supposed to be tied around a chair* and consoling my friend whose new hot pink dress that she was supposed to wear to her sister's wedding was ruined.
