I was wondering why you were on Booklikes at 3.00 am...

Peter Wimsey's "Piffle" is the reason.
How come you were still up at that time?
My sleep-cycle isn't what it should be...I'm fairly sure I was asleep by 6.00...

Piffle is going to continue occupying a starring role in this book. And while this particular scene is great, it is easily bested IMHO by one occuring later.

It is? Damn. :O
Can't wait!!
Such a great book.
I'm not going to say "I told you", but -- oh, heck. I told you! :)

Truly glad you're enjoying this.

There seriously will be a book hangover after this. :(
Sigh. Yes. Which doesn't mean one shouldn't enjoy it while it lasts ...

I just stumbled over the word piffle in Strong Poison and I had to look it up. Never heard of that word before, but its definitely what Lord Peter does ;).
I want to read a couple of chapters when I‘m getting home tonight. So there is not much of a good nights sleep for me either :D
Lord Peter's image should be in the dictionary right next to that word. Then again, it's a good thing this is not the *only* thing he does.

^^^ Yup.

@Lillelara: You caught the bug, too?

Yeah, I did. I´m going to snuggle up in bed with my book in a minute :). Not sure how much I´m going to read before I´m falling asleep, though ;)
Since when was "piffle" a verb??? It's a noun where I come from!
It *is* a noun (in Sayers's writing, too). The full expression she uses is "to talk piffle."
Ok, that makes sense, then.
