spam is annoying, yes. but every now and then it'll come with a title such as 'may the foreskin be with you' and raise a little smile.

i said smile.

***

there is a magic tube that leaves finsbury park just after 8.15am. i caught it today. it is somehow always practically empty.

my commute is so much happier for knowing this.

(and also because i have finally charged my ipod and meatloaf and weezer accompanied me on my journey.)

books read so far this year )

13. the algebraist - iain m banks
oooh look, the first author repeated on my (puny little) list... i love iain banks's books. this is my first foray into his iain m banks catalogue. because i am scared of sci-fi. not sure why. it's quite my favourite thing to watch on television. reading it is somehow different. i think it's possibly plunging yourself into a world of 'other', made up aliens, planets and galaxies. things you can't quite picture. words you have no idea how to pronounce.

(funnily enough i've read plenty of fantasy. but then, we're brought up on tales of fairies, elves and goblins, aren't we? they're all REAL.)

anyway. this book is EXCELLENT and i loved it. it caused me to almost miss my tube stop several times, and have to do that embarrassed leg-it-off-before-the-doors-close thing. there's all sorts of intergalactic war nonsense, and the race that hold the key are beings that have been around pretty much forever, have lifespans of billions of years, and live on most gas giants across the universe.

words are slipping out...

my favourite surprise of the WHOLE book was in fact these creatures. they are called Dwellers. spoilers if you care )

anyway, there's no point me even trying to review books, i'm rub at it. and not much point me bimbling on about made up places and things, for they'll mean nothing to you unless you've read the book. and if you've read it, you'll know it's jolly good indeed.

***

so, i'm quite in the mood for sci-fi. WHAT SHOULD I READ? nb: - i don't want anything that's part of a series. that's one step geek too far. stand alone novels only. (i think d has another stand alone iain m banks somewhere.)

apart from deciding i am a Dweller (oh don't worry i'll explain at some point. book i just finished.) and trawling the internet for fan art (which doesn't exist) i am also trawling the internet to try and find a recipe for scaltheen, which is the whisky and butter concoction the (dublin based at least) hell fire club used to drink.

"In Ireland, before the days of Father Mathew, there used to be a favourite beverage termed scaltheen, made by brewing whisky and butter together. Few could concoct it properly, for if the whisky and butter were burned too much or too little, the compound had a harsh or burnt taste, very disagreeable, and totally different from the soft, creamy flavour required."

this sounds fascinating.

i have some cheap (not irish) whisky.
i have some butter.

what's the worst that could happen?

(and wouldn't boiling whisky remove the actual booze?)
