Thursday June 24, 2004. Annual allergy check-up. (Summary: I'm allergic to indoor air and outdoor air.) Everything is working okay, so my prescriptions were renewed for another year.

On to the temporary Minneapolis central library. Got: A collection of essays by Isaiah Berlin. SF/fantasy collections by Theodore Sturgeon, Cordwainer Smith, and Fritz Leiber. Ursula K. Le Guin's Changing Planes.

On to Steeple People thrift shop, which is having a sale: clothing fifty percent off, everything else twentyfive percent off. I got a large basket for carrying cooking stuff, a frying pan, and a pot. 38 cents each, plus tax.

Across Lyndale Avenue to the Wedge co-op grocery. And then home.

***On rec.music.filk, Kip Williams responded to "Fair Eleanor and the Cyclops" with this:

"Here's to the charmer whose dimples we prize,
Now to the maid who has none, sir;
Here's to the maiden with three pretty eyes,
And here's to the nymph with but one, sir.
Let the toast pass,
Drink to the lass,
I'll warrant she'll prove an excuse for the glass."

***On rec.arts.sf.fandom, Matthew Tepper reported the death of Allen Rothstein. Damn!
Writing: Daily exercise -- done.

"Well Met, Well Met, My Own True Love" -- One small bit of conversation added.

"They Might Be Windmills" --

"History Line" --
