I was supposed to be in London this week. Instead I've got the client from Hades to pacify.
Will you be posting pictures?
Ali: Too bad you couldn't make it. A good time was had by all.Duck: Not. A. Chance.
Brit:Was he wearing a baseball cap and holding a book on neuroscience with no pictures and a lot of really big words? Yeah, that was David.
Are you bringing back the Appleyard books?
Peter: I did get to use the phrase "Hegelian dialectic."Duck: Yes, I hope to, though I haven't bought them yet.
Yeah, it was all polite chit-chat til David managed to pack the womenfolk off to a show, and then out came the Hegelian diaclectic and the Judeo-Christian tradition before you could say "Darwinism is trivial".It was a great evening. David talks a lot faster than he blogs, but maybe that was just the unique pint of Guiness/bitter lemon chaser combo.Ali: Pity - next time, then.
It has become almost impossible to get Bitter Lemon in the states. It's a miracle I'm not spending the entire week in a pub swilling down the stuff.
Drink some Irn Bru before you go.It's the UK's answer to the sweet nectar that is Mountain Dew.
