Last night’s Geek Corner was particularly lovely, partly because I could afford to be an exceptionally poor host and rely entirely on Alex bringing wine and Saoirse bringing her latest and possibly greatest baking creation yet. (Yup, four years later and I’m still getting food out of this friendship.) So, partly because Amber requested some photos and partly because it was amazing and delicious, I present the ironic cake:
Wait, that slogan rings a bell…
Don’t cha wish your corners were geek like me?
(For the record, we watched a great deal of trashy television.) Today, meanwhile, was the March For The Alternative
against the Coalition’s cuts – something which, I have to admit, was partly just a bit of an opportunity to have a nice day out with Grace, Oliver, Alice, Melissa and a wider bunch of Queens Park good people. No, we didn’t smash any windows. Yes, we did have a bit of a picnic. Yes, we are middle class. But still, the protest felt broad-brush enough to comfortably incorporate a lot of different points of view united solely by the belief that this isn’t the right way forward. (Because it isn’t, really, is it? I mean, honestly, even if you support every cut, you can’t possibly really think that free schools or a massive splintering of the NHS are great ideas. Can you? Answers on a postcard.)
Oh, and very excitingly, I got home to discover that I’d been spotted by a Seriously Prolific Blogger who I rather admire. What celebrity! By all means guys, bring on the long-focus lens and the cellulite circling – I’m totally ready for it.
Also, I think this photo is cute. (Even though I’m in it.)
Look at us, not smashing anything
