I am waiting and waiting for a copy of the manuscript I ordered from the British Library.  I wonder when it will get here.  I wonder if I’ll be able to read it.  I wonder if it will give me any insight to what people were doing in period (any moreso than just seeing the text).  I wonder what it will be like to own an image of a period recipe that is not only authentic and relevant, but controversial to boot.  I wonder if “pomace” means apples or “crushed honeycomb”. I wonder how I can verify any of what people are telling me.  I wonder what if the person who recorded that recipe had any idea that people 500 years in the future would even care.

I am waiting and waiting.
