Listen in, listen Ian!
A Spot of Bother by Mark Haddon at the moment, and inI'm reading |
the bit I was reading on the train this morning one of the characters ate a
Chinese takeaway in the bath. What madness is this? The concept of eating
in the bath is an entirely foreign one to me; surely nobody actually does
this? And Chinese food in the bath? Supposing you drop a bit of sweet and
sour chicken in the bath, that would make the water incredibly sticky and
unpleasant wouldn't it? No, this is nonsense.
Staying with the kind of decadence that saw the end of the Roman Empire,
there's a discussion just gone on in the office about underfloor heating.
Underfloor heating? What's wrong with wearing a pair of socks?
Lily Allen last night was excellent. In reply to damnspynovels's question in the post with the picture, I don't
think there were any new songs - there were some I don't know but I only
have her album and I assume these were B sides because most of the audience
seemed to know them. And yes, sevenwindmills I did see Jack
Penate, and I thought he was good. Lily was joined on stage at one point by
one of The Specials, whose name I've shamefully forgotten to play a cover
of a Specials song, the name of which I shamefully don't know. Because I
have a good in depth knowledge of a fairly small set of bands/artistes
people always think I have a good general music knowledge but I don't
really. I couldn't, for example, name one song by Prefab Sprout. There were
covers of Heart of Glass and Oh My God as well, and
warnings of the dangers of crack.
While I'm on a roll of answering questions in subsequent posts rather than
just in reply to the comments they were asked in, mrs_leroy_brown, is "You magnificent b@stard." not a Seinfeld
thing? They may have stolen it from somewhere else, but I can clearly
picture Kramer saying it. And then racially abusing some black people, etc.
