See what I did with that title there? Pretty clever. So what are you up to this weekend? It's Hallowe'en, obviously, and I trust you will all be ignoring it.

I'm doing as little as possible, with the aim to relax and spend quality time with my reading pile. To this end, tonight I'm having a Thai massage and hopefully having the living bajaysus pummelled out of me. Tomorrow night, dinner out to celebrate my stepfather's 60th birthday. We're going to Nuraghe, a Sardinian restaurant in our hood that we've seen go from one (lovely) woman and a bare room, to bustling, with tables spilling out on to the street. The food is great. Seriously, go if you're in the area!

Sunday, we're going to see José Feliciano play at the Jazz Café. I've seen him before and he was awesome, what a classic voice. And he tells bitter stories about his ex-wife. Can't wait. Have a good one, peeps!

  1. 'm going to see Arsenal play Tottenham Hotspur at 12.45pm then concentrating on remaining sober enough to give me a fighting chance of playing records at a Halloween party about 14 hours later. It has a ‘villains’ theme. I wanted to go as a Somalian pirate but alas, the host has beaten me to it.

  2. Hello Oliver.

    That sounds fun. Where is the party?

    I think you'll find you have to go as Carlos the Jackal.

    You're welcome.

    Cycling in this morning, I did think that I'll carve a pumpkin tomorrow. Bcs I've got one on my kitchen counter I need to use up.

  3. I will be attempting not to drown amid scary 6ft+ surf off the village of Croyde, Devon. Nothing too Halloweeny.

    Sorry I haven't come round and seen your cats yet - will do v.soon!

  4. Make sure you do, dude! They're getting bigger and not so cute anymore. They'll be off to the canal, soon.

    Enjoy surfin'.

  5. I'm going for a swim in the freezing cold lido tomorrow then off to see Devon Sproule at the Southbank Then I am doing nowt.

  6. Hm, finally I will remember to look her up!

  7. Halloweekend. Clever, very clever.

    I'm planning on doing two thirds of fuck all this weekend.
