Still ill. And it’s still quite difficult to tell on account of the heat.
I finally email Nick the pages of his last biook and set to the current one again. During a break I stumble across the H2G2 site at the BBC. This was originally started by the late Doug,as Adams as an expression of the Guide in his books. However, after coming to rest at the Beeb, it has run into perhaps too much regulation and the danger that it merely becomes a nexus of special interests (so it has entries on Ayn Rand and a drinking game called revolver, but not, as far as I can tell, about George Eliot. But that may be because I’m spelling it wrong). That doesn’t prevent me from adding my own obsessions. And a lot of the entries seem a bit partial and unevenly written, but I suppose that’s the charm of the thing. I’m not sure that I will do any better.
Let’s see, which of my badly-thought-out opinions shall I dump on them first?
On the Archers, Ed Gurndy’s joyriding gets further out of control and he’s rejected by Fallon (so I was wrong there), even though she egged him on to begin with. There were several scenes with Simon Gerrard being wise and kind so I suppose that means he’s the one who’ll be it the wrong place at the wrong time. Current projection: he’ll be knocked downa dn fatally injured by Ed and Jazzer in a stolen car, and the question will be whether Fallon and Ed’s brother William are prepared to turn him in to the police.
Personally I’m still holding out for a conflagration, but that seems less and less likely. Not very Archers really (Grace Archer notwithstanding).
So it’s Friday for the Tragic Joyriding Accident.
Unless I’m wrong, which I usually am.
