In less distressing news, Annie Proulx has been complaining about being sent Brokeback Mountain fanfic... so the Guardian has helpfully followed up by linking to a selection of the "best" such material. (Wouldn't that have been a great journalistic assignment?)
Also, Michael Rosen is on the ball again - as always. But this time it's in Walthamstow! Just around the corner from where excelsiora and I live! (Although not after next week, sadly.)
Meanwhile, we had a holiday! The Red Beast was staunch throughout, including DRIVING ON THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA. Photos are on facebook.
