    In the UK, the phrase fixing lunch would imply that the lunch was broken!

    In the US, particularly in the South and parts of New England, to fix something can mean both to REPAIR it or to PREPARE it. Like so many idiomatic expressions that we are so fond of using, "fix" requires the listener to view it in the context of the sentence to determine the intended meaning.

    Also, along that line, in many places the foodstuff used to "fix" a meal are commonly called the "fixings" or "fixin's".

    I have never figured out why some people call the act of setting the table (putting plates, silverware, napkins, etc. on the table) by the phrase "take up the table". The first time I ever heard that, I was really confused as to why someone would say they were going to remove everything from the table before the meal had been served!

    Well, I fixed my other Canonet's light seals, plus one on a Yashica Electro 35 GSN. And it's not even 3pm yet!

    Yesterday, I finished off repairing the lightseals on my Fujica GS645 whilst waiting for my Saturday-night hangover to clear. I also rebuilt the front of the Polaroid Automatic 100 which I converted with a manual lens.

    Hangover cleared soon after...
