That's from the preface of a book* I'm reading, where the author is saying that the publisher was awesome about the book being late ("bore with exceeding kindness delays in producing the manuscript"), and then rattles off a number of reasons why, and then ended the sentence with that. I think that's a terribly well-mannered way of saying, "dude, my shit was HOSED." And is in the running for my new LJ title.

*Pleasures & Pastimes in Medieval England by Compton Reeves, Alan Sutton Publishing Ltd, 1995.

I'd crib it, but it'd take too long to type out.

I sort of get the feeling he spent a little more time in the middle ages than was wise.

I wonder why you'd be spending time there too.
