Have been ill. Not certain about number of eggs, but about 9.

Weather clear & fine.

Second cylinder of Butagaz ended 27.12.38. Exactly 3 weeks (same as last time.)[1]

[1] The previous cylinder lasted five weeks; see 24.11.38. Peter Davison

    wHAT!? 9 EGGS! Wow. I honestly did not see that coming.

  2. Martin says:

    Odd that the entry for 26.12.38 notes that the gas cylinder ran out on the 27th. Perhaps his illness caused the entries for these days to run together and there are two or more days of eggs.

  3. Zamboge says:

    This entry is covering 3 days 26/27/28 – don’t get too excited about nine eggs. Perhaps it is due to his illness that Eric has not mentioned Christmas – or more likely – due to being an atheist to the core.

  4. Clint says:

    holy F*CK hoiw is this possible?!?! NIINE EGGS?!?!?!?!

    HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?! HOW!!!

    THIS IS HUUUGE, folks.

    Zamboge —> I’m an atheist to the core and still enjoyed Christmas gifts and meals O:)

    What strikes me much in this entry isn’t the number of eggs but the sentence NOT CERTAIN ABOUT NUMBER OF EGGS!!!! How painful those illness days must have been!

  6. logrus says:

    Yeah nine eggs over three days is not terribly significant in itself. I agree with Yokozuna that it is much more telling that George is uncertain of the number. He must have been sick as sh*t! Also, of course, he was totally wrong about the gas cylinder correlation. Perhaps he couldn’t read his own handwriting? I know I can’t.

    Christmas? ftw I was much more interested in the number of eggs than I was in presents

  7. I hope he elaborates on his illness. Was it a flareup of TB? An allergy to eggs, maybe? God forbid!

  8. I insist on immediate, unfettered access to Orwell’s medical records.

    I also want copies of each and every CCTV recording for the aforementioned 72-hour period, plus the 96 hours preceding and the 96 hours following it, from each and every CCTV camera within a 100-mile [160.9km] radius of the Chicken Coop.

    I’m not kidding.

    The modern illness,
    Is information disease:
    Cannot be certain

  10. Those concerned about the lack of exact egg figures should remember:

    Ignorance is Strength

  11. Or should that be Eggnorance?

  12. Meanwhile, on the 28th, in a city known simply as “Berlin,” Minister President General Field Marshal Goering, Commissioner for the Four Year Plan, produced [Warning: Creepy. Big time.] THIS secret document.

  13. David says:

    Counting with chickens
    Can not keep track of the days
    Screw it let’s say nine

  14. David says:

    I’ve been thinking about this all day. I think that George is lying about the eggs in order to make his journal more interesting. I’m on to you Mr. Orwell.

    Anyone know when he actually recovers from the illness?

  15. On a lighter note, that same day (the 28th), the Iranian government severed diplomatic ties with the French government.

  16. Ken says:

    Poor guy

  17. Steve says:

    He dies of tuberculosis in about 15 years. He’s been some 55 years now and today’s post still makes me feel sorry for him. Too sick even to keep track of eggs has got to be pretty sick.

    Re JL3’s creepy link, I think that’s the kind of thing GO was referring to (along with, perhaps his beginning to feel ill) on the 25th when he commented about the chill over all the world.

  18. Steve says:

    That is, he’s been dead some 55 years….

    Eating some passable scrambled eggs on board of a KLM pぁlane bound ふfor Osaka, I thought of ぽお¥poor George and his eggs. Now I read this entry at a Complex Cafe X-Time and feel very sorry for him. Well,伊f用コメへif you come here and try to use Internet in romaji, as they call the Latin alphabet, be prepared to getれあllreally nervous.Oh,my、ティうsthis isのtをrきんgnot working at あat all,so I wish 世よyou all the best for 2009.

  21. Uncertainty about the number of eggs is what you get for naming a hen Heisenberg.
