It’s Tuesday, time to find out what Miss Plumcake is…
Reading: Travels in the Scriptorium by Paul Aster. A slim but dense novel in the style of both Beckett and Bradbury.
Watching:Equus starring Richard Burton. Saw this on the West End with Richard Griffiths and Dan Radcliffe, one of the most powerful plays of the contemporary theater.
Hearing: Doolittle by The Pixies. If you’re young and like Nirvana, listen to these guys. Cobain admits The Pixies did it first.
Smelling: Cumming the Fragrance by Alan Cumming and Christopher Brosius. Dirty and Scottish and deeply perverse, just how I like ’em.
Loving: Health Alliance for Austin Musicians. A great local charity that does what it says on the tin. See if they have one in your city.
Hating: Pears. Pears can&^%$ right off. I’ve had a half-dozen organic, hand-picked, college-educated pears in my possession for 5 days now and they REFUSE to ripen.
Wanting: Green Hermes foulard. I think this one is from the Jardins Creole collection, and virtually impossible to find. I don’t know how, but I blame pears.
Buying: Cantaloupes. UNLIKE those pomaceous bastards the pears, I have been just spoiled with the best cantaloupes EVER this year. I’ve been eating a half a melon a day. Excessive? Perhaps. Do I care? Not in the least.
What’s watering YOUR melon this week?
