And on it goes... the festive season... my, how it can drag...
I try to read something really unseasonal at this time of year (a form of escape!) and right now I am ensconced with Quentin Crisp and his "The Naked Civil Servant" (1968). A friend left it here for me to read a couple of years ago and I've only just managed to reach for it recently. It looks something like this:
Crisp is eminently quotable (and not for the tiny-minded...) but so far my favourite quote is in the first chapter:
"... keeping up with the Joneses was a full-time job with my mother and father. It was not until many years later when I lived alone that I realized how much cheaper it was to drag the Joneses down to my level."
I've missed one Poetry Bus but might make the next one at the weekend (prompt here).
