I donated blood Friday morning, and the phlebotomist asked me which color of band I wanted to keep the gauze in place on my arm.

"Octarine," I answered, pronouncing it to rhyme with "pine" as at least some British would.

He didn't get it, alas, but I explained that I had made a literary allusion to the late Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels, where octarine is the eighth color, the color of magic.

My yellow self-sticking tape proved satisfactory enough.
I didn't get any amendments this week, and I didn't do Office Actions on any, although I started work on one, so I'm still at the same five as last week.

I did get out an Office Action on my oldest Regular New case.
