Despite the title of this blog, and the usual tone, there are some human activities that do lift my spirits.
May I recommend to those of you able to take advantage:
The South Bank show with Kevin Spacey, about what he is doing at the Old Vic.
(No, the theatre, not me, you dull twat)
Cranford with Eileen Atkins. Orgasmically good.
Big Fat Quiz of the Year.
The Karelia Suite by Sibelius.
The books of James Lee Burke.
Mississippi John Hurt.
(That's enough cheerful things, Ed.)
Normal bile pouring will resume shortly.
