My soul is off in realms of trying to understand the Compte-rendu, Passage to India and Horace, and I am writing timed essays. Therefore distract me, please. The following quiz is stolen from pretty much everyone, and mildly adapted by me. If anyone can stop me being haunted by Forster in my dreams it would help too.

1) Post a comment to this entry saying anything at all something random and I'll respond with something random about you.

2) I'll tell you what song/movie reminds me of you.

4) I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me. Or maybe just me.

5) I'll tell you my first memory of you.

6) I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.

7) I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.

Kindly remember that life does rely somewhat on eating; without food you will die, and you have not yet written your great work, so dying is still a bad thing.

That is all.

Seriously, does the spirit of Forster have nothing better to do then haunt your dreams? Is yours the only psyche in the entire world willing to accomodate you (or do you think he splits his time between you and Stallybrass...) Also, eat, sleep, and try not to spend the whole of the next month working. Time off is nice. (Can we tell I don't trust you to look after yourself?)

1)Whiskey and coke, however, is far worse for the world in general (dead trade union leaders) than not eating.

2) The boxer by Simon and Garfunkel

4) That song does make sense, because he doesn't get the drugs.

5) First clear one: mock election. But confusing you with Austin when I was in the LVth

6) Probably a tortoise.

7) Precisely which denomination, and view on transubstantiation/ nature of faith?

JE,

i) I do not envy you the forthcoming summer of desperately attempting to learn that bloody alphabet

ii)film "Lord of the Rings". Song "Homesick subterranean alien" by Radiohead (points if you know why)

iv) Intone! Intone! (works for Euripides as well)

v) being told you were fluent in Elvish by Evie

vi) vole (or a water-vole)

vii) keeping to the religious theme: Wicca? And are you still?

Hello. It is M again. I am sure there were not 4 comments here before supper, so I assume people are still commenting on this one (am slightly unsure of blogger etiquette).
Random comment: I am looking forward to watching the chelsea flower show in 55 minutes.
Right, should stop procrastinating now.

The Wicca thing you can put down to having very odd influences when I was ten. It is mostly a hazy memory now (ah, those happy days when I was less theologically confused...) I fear I am never going to get over the Lord of the Rings thing.

Vole, eh?

I don't know the song...

I am beginning to wonder exactly what some people's perception of myself actually is.

First Eddie, now a tortoise - I know I can be somewhat slow but... oh fine. I shall merely grin, bear it, and play to the role.

M,
(am procrastinating)
i) Please shoot me if I ever try to write a PhD on Oz, and your Leonardo T-Shirt's brilliant

ii) Song "There is a Light", and probable "Just Friends" by Flanders and Swann, film, well I doubt I'll be able to watch Passage/The Da Vinci code without being reminded of you.

iv) "...wouldn't get Epicureanism if it jumped out of a tree festooned with wine cups" any chance of us getting that line into the novel? (not of H, obviously, but M?)

v) Seeing you and C. leaning against a table in Allen during the briefing on the Sunday. And then the fire drill.

vi) well, I do think of you whenever I encounter a Bouvier de Flandres, and indeed if I ever encountered a lion on a cheesegrater, but you don't actually remind me of an animal.

vii) how often do you check this? And why did you start watching the Chelsea Flower Show?

Do you want to ever watch The Da Vinci Code or Passage to India again? Really? Seeing as you don't own one of them...

I have been thinking about this and I acutually don't know when/why I started watching chelsea. Have just gone and asked my dad. Definitely not before secondary school (it hasn't actually been televised for that long). 2nd/3rd year? I went first when I was in the fourth year. I have also no idea why I started watching it. Possibl because I used to watch Groundforce sometimes. Or possibly because my dad was watching it (Dad used to be rather keener on gardening). But probably because I was a rather dull 13 or 14 year old and that was the sort of thing I did.

I am desperate to find a lion on a cheesegrater.

Yes I am sure we can get that line in, but would it be rather inappropriate in H's voice about M.

I check your blog quite a lot. Often when I have turned on the computer to check email. More so now than I used to. Am worried this is making me sound rather like a stalker, though it really shouldn't.

Sorry this is long.

Shall I do this for you?

xM
