About me

Halloween

What’s happen to the apostrophe? Was it stolen? I think we should be told. I for one want it back. I’m all for evolution of the language, but this is blatantly nonsensical.

And in other news, the Grauniad have surpassed themselves in today’s edition:

A panel accompanying an article about past Booker prize winners (Booker prize’s long-term fame lottery, page 11, October 21) was wrong to say that Peter Carey’s novel Oscar and Lucinda sold just 13 copies in British bookshops in the previous year. In fact, its sales were more than 3,000. Apologies.

Angry Little Men: A Response

Here’s something strange: I was in the Stephenson halls at Durham last year. And whilst I have no idea what a ‘house manager’ is, I’m assuming it’s like a porter – who thought that I was insane. And still does.

As for lifts, I can’t believe that getting stuck in one made the papers. It happens all the time here. Just get everyone to jump at the same time. People do it all the time.

I got fined £15 for leaving stains on my carpet. Which was actually nothing to do with me, they were there when I arrived. But never mind.

Anyway, now I’m snuggled up in my Happy House instead of halls. It’s SO much nicer and more comfortable. Even if it does mean I now have to get up before ten to nine.

Anyway, it just seemed weird that there was a freaky LBSC connection there.

Lynda Lee-Potter

I think my feelings about her have been fairly well documented on this site, but it’s still sad that she’s dead at just 69.
