Re: Meanwhile...

Cycling through Hampton late last night, I hear music. The music keeps getting louder though, so I am still approaching the party and it's very loud.

My thoughts:
  • That's some party
  • Oh, it's not a party, it's a concert.
  • That sounds like 80s music
  • It sounds like ABC.
Indeed ... https://www.tickettailor.com/events/ham ... 19/229454/

So I messenged a few seconds of it to a friend I had seen them with back in the day.

I walked down (ahem) Dukes Head Passage and was only a few metres from the stage, albeit with a 8 foot fence in between. Still, it may have been better than being inside because it #40 cheaper, and I could imagine Martin Fry was still a sulky, floppy haired young man. Oh, and I could really dance like no one was watching.

Is the grey one called Archie or is he a LotR's wizard, Archie the Grey One?

Meanwhile, my phone is misbehaving because I don't have enough free space.

Turns out I have 2 GB(!?) of unlistened to episodes of In Our Time.

I want to listen to them, but just not now™

Yep. Breed like anything....


..so definitely not a Regulator.
...or an Iris.

Which are tricky plants to propagate.

Our cat can hear them moving around upstairs but has no idea what they were, now she knows. No issues all seemed ok.

Out of the three of them, guess who was most scared.

This comes from this week's Cycling UK weekly email. I find myself prey to two strongly conflicting emotions. One is an intense distaste for people who find fault with other people's grammar or spelling (grammarnazis! elitism and classism!) The other, which is clearly winning at the moment, is my delight at finding anything with which to find fault with CUK ("it wouldn't have happened in Chris Juden's day...")
