merry christmas!

Oh Christmas Tree

As usual, I have been scant with the Christmas cards this year (um, I’ve written two) but I did get you some library books – just if you decide you want to get them out, you’ll have to go to Cambodia.

Hope everyone has a lovely Christmas/general festive period with terrible amounts of overeating, plenty of booze and snoozing on warm sofas. We have a lot of cheese tonight, Beef Wellington tomorrow and I will be cooking up a storm of a roast lamb on Boxing Day (I hope.)

Be well everyone ♥

the lrb personals

How have I never come across the Personals in the London Review of Books before?

Actually, that’s a silly question. I’ve almost never read the LRB and even less often do I read Personals but having now come across them, they’re an absolute joy to browse:

Female, 34. All own limbs. Seeks man with low priorities.

What I really want is a workshop with a lathe, but my flat’s not big enough. Desk worker M, 51, seeks F for turning.

Attractive 40 something F seeks solid, suited, salaried M. Fortunately I am none of these.

Sadly, I only discover them when apparently they are to be no more.
