It might actually hit freezing tonight. Fucking mid-April for fuck's sake. 🥶

What embarrasses you the most?

@RickiTarr Managers that tell me to add a specific sentence to a report they're reviewing, when that self same sentence is in the very first motherfucking paragraph.

Bad day at the office.

@bookstodon For context, I read all but two of this man's books maybe 8-10 years ago. For some reason, always hesitated to immerse myself in the last two. Time I did.

@RolloTreadway @bookstodon His other books were very specific about particular theatres, or individuals. I expect this is more sweeping. I should've read it years ago tbh.

Only about 20 pages in, and already it has set out aspects of Russian history from the time of the rise of the Mongol Empire, that seem to resonate to this day, particularly with regard to Putin's position on NATO. Think I'll enjoy this one. 📖 #books #bookstodon @bookstodon

Next book problems. Thinking of doing something old school.

@ianRobinson It's been on my shelf for two years. 😳

Started another book today. Was hairy bollocks. Put it down. I'm on a heinous run lately. 📖 #books #bookstodon @bookstodon

OK, quiz time for the learned amongst you. I'm trying to work out all the busts high above the bar at The Partridge in Bromley. I reckon I have Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, and Plato in a leather Village People cap on the first. Possibly also Count Ugolino from Dante's Inferno too. On the second, just Shakespeare so far. Any answers?

Four more marble busts.

Looking forward to the Liz Truss book getting remaindered at The Works in a month or so. Sounds like the finest work of comedy since Airplane! The Movie. 📖 #books #bookstodon @bookstodon

So, people who know more about #cricket than me, are Compton and Gay, amongst others, signs of the renaissance of the opener, or are the pitches just too tame? 🏏 #CountyChampionship

@ianRobinson I noticed this at the Oval on Friday. I was right behind the bowler's arm first session.

@ianRobinson Seemed to be movement for the first ten overs or so, after that, very little.

Moved to the Laker Balcony for a bit of sun. I had a scarf on in the Pavilion! My favourite A82 seat. 🏏

Last boost: that Cass Report sounds fucking mental. Proper amateur job. Five years ago, I'd have been confident it would be dismissed as obvious nonsense. Now, not so sure.

I'm over halfway through this one, and I'm still not really sure where it's heading. Two Black women on a mental health inpatient ward, one quite acute still, the other more settled, but prone to outbursts and setbacks. Their stories have touched once or twice but mostly weave separately. Feels like there's going to be a twist at some point. Intriguing. #books #bookstodon @bookstodon 📖

Just a normal morning, drinking my coffee, eating my croissant, staring at some bloke's arse. 😬

The truth is I've always been an old lady, I want to go to a bar at 4 in the afternoon, and listen to great music, but it can't be too loud, I want a couple good drinks, and leave before it gets too busy, so I can have dinner, and get back home. I need to have plenty of time to watch Godzilla movies in my PJ's, and snug before my first pre-bed nap.

@RickiTarr Blimey, this is my pub routine. Pub 4 till 7, food at home or takeaway, film or CD, bed around 11. Far more civilised.

Do eclipse tracks repeat on a set timeline? Will the 2026 one that will cross Cornwall and Devon be on the same track as the 1999 one?

@ianRobinson I read somewhere that the next full one in the UK will be South West England too. About 70 years away.

@ianRobinson It's strange though isn't it. Wonder if it's coincidence or something to do with the planetary rotation.

I was in the Gower Street Waterstones today, asking about where to find books on neurodiversity. Got told they could be in any of three or four places depending on the type of book it is. Made me wonder, when a bookshop is that big, wouldn't using Dewey decimal be a better option? #books #bookstodon @bookstodon 📚

@pretensesoup @bookstodon It's a one person elevator only! Generally viewed as bad form to use it unless you've lost use of at least one leg. 😬
