Morning all and welcome to bloggers old and new. Well done for making it this far. I love Thursdays though I have little evidence for why I should feel like this. Is it the proximity to the weekend? It's Bob Harris day? Maybe a decades old reaction to Blue Peter day(and I think Robinson Crusoe) on TV. Maybe a bit of all those. Anyway, hooray for Thursday.
Top blog contributions yesterday. What an education experience this blog is, I'm sure Lord Reith would approve. At this point I would sing you "Northern sky" by Nick Drake, our showstopper from yesterday. Then read you in Just by e e Cummings which has the line 'And it's spring, when the world is puddle-wonderful.'
A wonderful phrase no? Let's try and use it at least once today...
Here's hoping your world is 'puddle-wonderful' today...
Loved Jon Ronson yesterday, he really is a one off. No one else could write a book on psychopaths and make it as entertaining and engaging as Jon does.And as he mentioned yesterday, a movie has already been agreed. Check out "The Psychopath Test" should you get the chance.
Nige does his thing with lentils and aubergines today. Matt will not be looking forward to it but I love the aubergine so I'll happily have his portion unless Sally gets there first.
And songs today please for KING ARTHUR AND THE KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE. And that includes CAMELOT MERLIN, EXCALIBUR, GUINEVERE, LANCELOT, THE LADY IN THE LAKE and all that lot. New series coming on Channel 4 starring Eva Green and Joseph Feinnes. Enough already.
Have a noble and chivalrous Thursday, see you after 5.
