Be a scribe! Your body will be sleek, your hand will be soft . . . You
are one who sits grandly in your house; your servants answer speedily;
beer is poured copiously; all who see you rejoice in good cheer. Happy
is the heart of him who writes; he is young each day.
--Ptahotep, 4500 BC

Thank you, Sarah. It's all true of course. Well, the soft hand bit, anyway.

I knew there had to be a good reason I took up this unstable profession. Let the beer flow copiously!
