Miscellany

Today's annoying public transport person: the woman getting off the train at Moorgate in front of me who spotted a discarded hat on a seat, stopped to pick it up and consider it, then discarded it and continued in a slow zig-zag in front of me to the platform exit towards the Northern Line, where she stopped dead. GET OUT OF MY WAY! Also at this time of year, a curse on people waving big umbrellas around without the vaguest notion of who they might be poking in the ribs.

This week's Radio 4 book of the week is Family Britain. Listening to it every night has reminded me that I've had its predecessor, Austerity Britain glowering fatly at me from a bookshelf for probably somewhere over a year now so I stuck it in my coat pocket - I like that at this time of year I can wear my big coat with its capacious pockets - and I've been reading it on the train for the last couple of days. It's v good so far but man, it's disspritingly huge. I have little hope that I'll ever read anything else.

Taste London are giving away 2000 free annual memberships right now! Sadly, the website is obviously overwhelmed, as I can't get the page to load. Tsk.

What food are you currently slightly addicted to? I'm obsessed with lemon curd sandwiches at the moment. Morrison's finest lemon curd is excellent.

Addendum - those darn cats

When I got up this morning, I opened my bedroom door and found my toothpaste on the floor outside it. When I squeezed it, the better to clean my teeth it was like one of those play-doh hairdresser things. Grr.
