In the last fortnight I read something which said fortnight wasn't an American word (in the sense it is now creeping into regular usage over there). Is this true? What do you call a period of two weeks then; just two weeks? And I thought our differences came down to pants and suspenders (only suitable work attire in America to give you a clue).
So onto my incredibly British fortnightly recap. Despite having a week off work, I didn't really get much more reading done although thanks to Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon, I am now a bit behind in review writing. I'm pretty sure it's Australian Masterchef that's eating into my reading time! I seem to have a lot of half-finished books lying around which is quite unlike me. Planning to sort that out this week. However, there has been quite a lot going on blogwise, including my new Catalogue Spotlight feature.

It was probably your cat and not a medieval cult but you never know...
