Disclaimer: I am not the BBC.  I am not making money from this.  (I am, however, having a great deal of fun.)

A/N: Wow!  Has it really been that long since I added to this series?  Thanks to wendymr for the Britpick.  I am leaving Saturday evening for a week in London, and will have only occasional 'Net access, so I may not respond to some comments until my return.

This isn't the gap year I planned.  At first, it was brilliant.  I played guitar in Barcelona, picked olives in Provence, learned some Arabic curses, and washed dishes in a Venetian trattoria.  That last bit saved my life after The Day, no lie.  I would've been sent to a slave camp, but they needed someone up here who could operate a temperamental WKT1200 and scrub fifty-litre stockpots.

It's not bad.  I'm about as safe as any human can be, but I want to get Earthside again.  What I learned during my gap year: cleaning up messes is an important job.
