    Hehe! Don’t want to meet her in a dark alleyway!
    (Wonder if she’s in any way related to Rufus’s ideal woman Anya Gladitsova in Skin Deep?)

    Thanks, Verity. I appreciate it.

    Neville, I remember Skin Deep but didn't remember that name, although that's the same kind of wordplay I was going for. I wanted to make a modern, stereotypical leftist American woman, which would be my nightmare date.

    No worries Christopher. It was just a throwaway joke in the final drabble of the story, but ’Macski’, the super-smart machine didn’t get the joke... but then I’m not sure what kind of sense of humour one might reasonably expect of a bit of electronic gizmo.🤔

    I remember that electronic gizmo. And I remember an old man hiring an assistant, and then a whole bunch of crazy stuff happening! I'll have to go back and re-read it. I recall the overall story but major details are a bit cloudy. A lot of my brain is a bit cloudy these days.

    I missed out a comma when reading Turn-ons. It became "Recycling Tree Huggers" Which is probably a Freudian slip on my murder-hobo side.

    Hehe! That sounds like a great drabble on its own, Recycling Tree Huggers.
