Belated Happy Birthday. I trust a good dinner was involved?
Ephemera and whimsy
Radio 4 is serialising a reading of Elena Ferrante's new book The Lying Lies of Adults. I've not read any of her stuff, although I've heard radio readings and dramatisations - it seems OK, although I can't see what people get so excited about really. Unfortunately the current reading is ruined for me by the reader adopting the voice of Marge Simpson for Aunt Vittoria, I can't get the blue hair out of my head .
Yes thanks. Another one next weekend - we're thinking of the Hawksmoor at Home steak blowout to go with the bottle of self-vintage Barbaresco and one of the bottles of self-vintage port I was given.
Took my multitool out of the pannier today for the first time in months, and found that one end had disintegrated. I'm none too sure I've retrieved all the bits - and there are three different size washers and I've no idea which goes where....
I am going dark here, and possibly too far into David Croenenberg's back catalogue, but that looks like props from Dead Ringers.
