Like You Do

Thought it was going to be a damp squib tonight what with people away on holiday or lecturing at Syracuse university ( like you do) but you know what - it turned out to be a really good night. In fact for the first time in ages, we didn't get around to hearing everyone read.  Sorry Lily - you are first up on September 6th,  if you are back from sailing around Menorca and travelling around Siberia ( like you do ).
We heard Clare's continuing children's story which is reaching a thrilling climax and Steve's Irish family saga, told in his inimitable style. Newcomer Su read a fantastic short story set within the Sri Lankan community which, with some slight adjustments, will be a stomping good read, and to finish we had a poem that has a lot of potential from another newcomer, or should I say 'returner',  Abina.  Then off to the pub until eleven thirty to discuss, amongst other things, biros, propelling pencils and vomit ( like you do )


Tonight, 2 Aug has been cancelled

Olympics/summer/dance fever has spread through the regular members like a... er.. olympics/summer/dance fever.

The only person that can make it did say that she thought my shirt bright and my remarks brighter (which is basically the nicest thing that anyone has said to me this decade), but that she did not have anything to read.
