    "And you, Brutus", quote from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, here used to mean "Same to you"

The Ruba'iyat of Omar Kayyam. If I read it aright, the philosophy amounts to "Life is short. Who know's what's next? Have a drink".

    It's lethal if not treated with respect - especially if you go for the local hooch rather than the commercial stuff.

    I love his arguments with his God about sin and punishment:

    What, without asking hither hurried; Whence?
    And without asking wither hurried hence.
    Oh many a cup of this forbidden wine,
    Must drown the memory of THAT insolence.

    My absolute most favourite poem :)

    I read Fitzgerald's translation, but I gather he was very much creating an interpretation and re-ordered many quatrains. I'm not sure if there's a more literal translation out there.

Just when you think you've got the plumbing sorted, half the upstairs lights refuse to illuminate. More money for the tradesmen...

    Nah. Rather to the disappointment of those who found the concept of my having an "invisible little friend" utterly hilarious.

Went to Islington on Monday to see the play Ink at the Almeida. On the way back someone stopped me in the street and said I'd got lovely hair. True, he was both gay and drunk - but a result's a result!

    No reason why a gay man can't appreciate another man's hair. And alcohol has been making people appear attractive for centuries...!

It appears university has been a successful experience as I will be graduating, and with an Upper Second Class degree with Honours! So close to a First, but I am still incredibly happy to be graduating at all this year - especially after all the things I've had to battle through :)

My dad is on holiday in cornwall, I get a message saying "I've found your shop! It's full of witchy things! I've got you a pressie!" Such a cool dad lol :D

    Amethyst is my favourite gemstone. Basically it started when i noticed an Amethyst necklace in a window & was drawn to it soo strongly! Everyday I stopped to look at it, in the end I bought it & basically havn't taken it off, I have no idea why I feel so connected to it, I just do... :)

Why do people have headphones in while driving? I get that they may lack a handsfree set for the car, but it just doesn't look right to me.

    Perhaps they work for GCHQ. Don't let them know you've seen them. In fact, best delete the status update and end your internet contract asap! :)

My father is in hospital for the 3rd summer in 7 years. I drop by daily. His movement is still very restricted and he's extremely bored. However, if they discharge him in this condition it will be to a full care package and less physio than he has access to in the hospital. But they can't keep him there for much longer. Watch this space...

    Nope. No easy answers. It's partly the emotional drain plus I spent a week away, last week.
