[looks up from piles of black-and-white photos, archival documents, notes scribbled in the margins of books, logic puzzles attempting to place fragments of evidence in a timeline, recollections of academics, collections of academics, disconnected letters, maps, newspaper clippings, webs of causality all leading to tragic consequences, inventories, mysteriously missing accelerants, problematic personalities, suppressed suggestions of betrayal, suspicious deaths, and the conflict between idealistic pursuit of knowledge and self-interested ambition]

You know, sometimes I think about all the mental gymnastics I did over Lemony Snicket in the early 2000s, and wonder when I'll ever find a practical application for those skills.

Oh, it's not the same *at all* ... Our Guys were voyaging far distances on a mission of valuable fantastic discovery in a vast frozen desert. The merry crew included your favourite virtuous faithful doctor, Griff the verbose fidgety dude, and Teddy the vexing foolish dullard for whom Silas had vehement full-on dislike. A winter (and a Cape Crozier journey) of vile frightening dark ended with vivid fine dawn and very frisky dogs. Sadly, the final Polar Party's journey ended with a very fatal delay ...

Nah, there couldn't *possibly* be any transferable Snicket Skills involved in studyng that business. (/s) ;)

(stretches after that vocabulary workout)
