"Approximately.  Jacquelyn's is self-study and that's quite usual for someone of her age and especially of her birthday; lots of people are vocational artists and musicians - how do people parent small children if all their time is split between sleep, occupation, and self maintenance?"

"...I mean, I guess if you put it that way the answer is 'with more difficulty'."

Permalink

"I understand it to be quite difficult to begin with."

Permalink

"I've never had small children, I couldn't say."

Permalink

"That would tend to limit one's useful commentary on the subject.  Well, if this counts as an economic blindside I'm happy to have reset your counter sooner rather than later."

Permalink

"It is, yeah! I don't know if it's a particularly material one but it is is one and they sure do keep happening."

Permalink

"What's the most notable one so far?"

Permalink

"Geminis. Being a thing. Instead of everyone getting a random personality independent of birthday. It's competing with 'some cats are people' but that seems like the sort of thing that might be true somewhere, if you checked lots of universes, you know? The birthday thing didn't."

Permalink

"Seems lonely without.  Or at least confusing."

Permalink

"We're accustomed. I can see the appeal, it just hadn't occurred to me to wish that a substantial fraction of the population were my personality duplicates even though it sounds great now that I've been prompted to think about it."

Permalink

"Some people here - even aside from the obvious and even among my geminis - don't prefer the existing setup over being unique.  But I personally am quite comfortable with this arrangement."

Permalink

"Anyway, was that a silver's worth or do you have more questions?"

Permalink

"As I said, it's at your discretion.  But if I were allowed precisely one more I would use it to ask for your best guess at a recommendation tailored to me."

Permalink

"A recommendation for what?"

Permalink

"Something to accept from you in exchange for a large sum of money."

Permalink

"...I don't feel like I know enough about your tastes, like, do you go in for food or music or chachkas or what?"

Permalink

"I do like food.  Although - I may be uncreative, but while I can imagine spending a few gold on food I admit to having a hard time seeing how I could reasonably spend eights of gold on it on a timescale relevant to you."

Permalink

"I can make things that cannot be conventionally cooked but I am still getting used to your monetary system and don't know how much it would be reasonable to charge for a tasting menu of demonic comestibles. If you wanted to throw a decadent party I could cater it, I suppose."

Permalink

"I'm not quite the throwing decadent parties sort.  How well do your most interesting and delicious options keep?"

Permalink

"Depends if you want, like, weird candy, or doctored salmon, or what. There is some weird candy that keeps fine."

Permalink

"Hm.  I'll mull on the question and write you tomorrow, I suppose."

Permalink

"Sure. Note that my cash flow problem is almost certainly short term. Because of, among other things, the appeasement fund situation, which my assistant assures me I qualify for."

Permalink

"Naturally.  I'd have taken a different approach if I expected to be notably useful over a longer term.  Would you prefer to have a way to contact me as well or is that unnecessary."

Permalink

"Wouldn't hurt. I have a local phone now."
