Just thought I’d let all you folks know that
Lynn Lynne Truss (of Eats, Shoots & Leaves fame) has a new book out: Talk to the Hand. The subtitle is, “The Utter Bloody Rudeness of the World Today, or Six Good Reasons to Stay Home and Bolt the Door” and I’m liking it so far:
Speaking of books, I was talking to my prof about the Lahiri book I mentioned recently, and she agrees with my assesment – it’s really not prize-worthy. So there.
Nevertheless, it’s an interesting read. Ask me if you’d like to borrow it. Or either of the Truss books, for that matter.
And here’s a little music from Melbourne. Listen to this album if you can.
Architecture in Helsinki
From the album, In Case We Die
Choking on a wishbone,
In the firing line of lovers,
Who will never slow down.
And I won’t let you steer,
Comandere the atmosphere,
Since you suggested running away,
Hit the redial,
Maybe we can sigh a while,
Save our second wind for sentimental warm weather.
We’ll play dead,
We’ll play dead.
Should we make believe you remember me
From a holiday delayed by a storm?
Should we chance our arms alarms
To set high noon until the shiver in the river is gone?
Hoping you might whistle,
Get all dizzy ’cause I found the reason why you’re around,
If I won’t stay sincere talk you through the tangles.
Can you chase me till you my feet touch the ground,
And go dancing,
Tambourin style walking in a single file,
You whisper half thoughts to me.
Still too much work for this here student.
Pip, pip and cheerio and all that. Hope everyone’s well.
