“a dogs purpose sm 52 Weeks a New York Times Bestseller! This novel, told from a dog’s perspective, has the highest reader-ranking of any recent New York …”
Clocks, Inty: the Uni doesn’t offer permanent contracts any more; this says open-ended, but funding only guaranteed until end of April next year.
Inty: that hot choc with marshmallows is what is known to my gang in St As as a “Gavin Special”. He’s partial to them as a treat. Unfortunately, one attacked me once and ruined a burgundy velvet dress. It was plonked down a tad too vigorously on the table by a waiter and erupted its molten marshmallowness on to me. I cleaned off the marshmallow gunk as best as i could, but the texture of the fabric didn’t recover.
Never trust a marshmallow.
Last Leg on 4 at 10.
oh silly waiter, velvet never recovers…”never trust a marshmallow” lol.
oh btw all, A Dog’s Purpose is not Beowulf, so if you are looking for deep reading, don’t go there.
But it is touching.
yes, they’re amazing, – here’s a better (?) one,
” It’s gone right through their fucking house “.
Justa, I had to read “A Handmaid’s Tale” for my Access Course Eng Lit, thought I’d hate it, not my genre, couldn’t put it down. Fab book, lousy fillum, though.
I’ve been wanting to read it for a while. Got a couple of her other books.
Current political climate spurred me to purchase it.
Which is impressive as I usually forget what I was after upon entering a bookshop and go into kid in a sweetshop mode.
To the pub! 🙂
Hope all are as well as can be…
Emms, I’ve just spent a few seconds trying to wipe your dot off my phone’s screen. Doh!
Evenin’ all !
I finished “The day of the Locust”, Nathanael West. The whelming is not very high there (that I borrow and adapt from that Scottish actor on QI the other day, Ronni Ancona).
It’s not great, is what I’m conveying here. It’s a confused thing which ends in greater confusion. And it’s not very wholesome either, and if I sound like that Telly woman crusader (what was her name?), well, that’s the way it is.
Don’t bother, is my advice.
It started out fairly well, but got bogged down in a morass of nothing very much. The best bits might be him walking through film sets, but that’s not up to much.
Here’s Teh Graun’s review from some time ago.
Right, now I’m off to watch “The Man in the High Castle”: a excellent book, by that find spaced out californian Phillip K. Dick.
Recently got and am enjoying David Bellos’ The Novel of the Century. Fascinating.
All good here:
Injection in bum, clips out, catherer out. Not much leakage due to strong pelvic floor exercises beforehand.
Hurrah. All paying off now.
G so smiley and much more able to walk so he’s been doing a little too much.
We made it to the cheap Greek but I advised G to come home after that. He didn’t disagree.
Now watching 4 Lions: Rather funny.
Lookit us, being all fillumy n that.
Good news, TD.
Keep on keepin’ on.
Arthur Askey in The Ghost Train. Class… 😉
V good Last Leg so far.
V good news on the G front, Sleeps.
Best to Tiger and Nuits on the jobs front.
best wishes to everyone – there, that’s sorted.
Ha! Have those pesky Brexiteers voted for the worst possible Eurovision entry?
We don’t want no part of your foreign songfest! 😉
Ha, didn’t think of that, Inty. I mean, I was going for the personal touch. Happy day off to you. x 😉 x
Xen, I like music, I can’t bring myself to Eurovision. 😉
And to think we could have had Nige & Don singing “Islands In The Stream”… 🙂
“From one lover to another, uh huh…”
Or, given today’s meeting, the don singing “I wanna hold your hand”, “Lady in red”, the rest of us “End of the world” ….
51, I’ve avoided the news today ‘cos I don’t like poodles. And I don’t like really stupid men with no sense of how thick they are… 😉
Nn, anyhoo… x
Fading fast, nn lovely et al. x
I don’t think I give a damn about the ‘real world’ any more, outside immediate family, friends and people in the same fandoms/fields of study.
A bit late (perhaps someone in admin can repost it on tomorrows thread) RIP John Hurt
