      Bar-stewards! I see I’m talking to myself here. Why can’t others be in front of their computers on Easter weekend?

      At home in Italy surrounded by the Puglian side of the family rabbiting away in Pugliese, of which I am blissfully ignorant and therefore free to surf the web with impunity. This evening to an Orthodox Easter service - not that I’m Orthodox (or will understand the Greek) but of the Christian services it’s the most beautiful - singing, icon-kissing, crossing and standing up (which means you can sneak out easily when you get bored). Highly recommended.

      Auguri tutti!

      Weather’s lookng a bit iffy, but I’ll be getting the bike out and heading to Allendale bakery for lunch.

      I’ll go along for a look at this tomorow.
      At the GPO in Dublin.

      I shall be braving the weather to go to the local funfair today.

      Also, I shall be cooking a lot. Just because I can.

      I hope there’s somebody there to sing “Kevin Barry” for you. Take extra tissues just in case :)

      Personally I’ll be here in The Chair dividing my time between Samurai Su Duko(almost complete), The Internet, Harry Potter and one of a number of detective books that I’ve started.

      Sun’s shining, sky’s blue, birds feeding happily on the bird feeders, La Fluffita asleep on sofa, and Otis prowling and miaowing.

      Chairwoman - I’m going to the shops to buy the new Mark Billingham soon - maybe you know him already but if not - as you like detective stories - I recommend his DI Thorne novels.

      If it’s new as in out in paperback, then I already have the hardback. I must be one of Amazon’s best customers. If it’s a new hardback, I demand that you tell me immediately!

      I love Tom Thorne and his yellow BMW :)

      May I recommend Martin Edwards? His detective is a Scouse criminal solicitor called Harry Devlin. I first looked at his books because there was one called ‘Waterloo Sunset’. The Late Chairman was a Scouser from Crosby, and I know Waterloo pretty well. I enjoyed the book, and was surprised at the denoument.
      All the Harry Devlin series titles are song titles from the 60s. I’m currently reading ‘I Remember You’.
      I bought them all from Amazon, but some of them cost as little as 1p.

      Heading down to the Natural History Museum now, to check out Wildlife Photographer of the year exhibit then a bit of KICKASS tomorrow!

      Looking for easter eggs, not much going around in beijing, should’ve amazoned it across for my little nephew who is visiting - though it’s been a very religious week all around, went to a passover dinner on Monday. Went furniture shopping today, which seems to be what the foreigners eventually do, sure i got ripped off, but it all looks very pretty compared to Ikea - though ikea is the rage with all the Chinese - despite the amazing heritage in the country! I also bought a copy of Martin Jacques ‘When China Rules the World’, which i am looking forward to reading, however daunting it’s size…

      The sun is shining and I’m off to the beach (if I can drag the kids off the Wii) :)

    15. Rumbold — on 3rd April, 2010 at 1:02 pm  

      Merry Easter to one and all.

    16. Sarah AB — on 3rd April, 2010 at 2:01 pm  

      Just the new paperback I’m afraid Chairwoman - thanks for the tip about Martin Edwards whom I don’t know!

    17. chairwoman — on 3rd April, 2010 at 2:02 pm  

      Just checked Amazon. New Tom out in August. Have pre-ordered!

    18. Abu Faris — on 3rd April, 2010 at 2:15 pm  

      Job hunting, thinking of England from far away in Africa…

      In my reverie, recalling how “Waterloo Sunset” used to run through my head every time I took a 6:10 out of Victoria, across the Dirty Old River, to Southwark and beyond when I first started teaching…

      Time flies.

    19. Abu Faris — on 3rd April, 2010 at 2:17 pm  

      Southwark, the LEA - for those geographically inclined.

      Bah, I’m a young person, I’m supposed to be doing ‘rad’ things - but everyone else here is doing more interesting stuff! :-(

      I will be cranking up the nutjob-o-meter for extended family time over Easter, missing my fella and doing reading for Master’s dissertation/essays. There was already an incident of pure, frothing nutjobbery from siblings yesterday, but I am still traumatised and unsure about whether to blog it up or not.

      Happy Easter, everyone - peace, goodwill and chocolate eggs/rabbits/whatever to all.

      Back from lunch, feeling achy but self-righteous. We cyclists are a smug bunch. Got hailed on on the way back, but otherwise fun. Stuck some tasty bread and a couple of bottles of Golden Plover from the brewery in my back-pack, so I’m settling back with some bread, cheese and beer to watch Harry Potter on telly. Simple pleasures.

    22. earwicga — on 3rd April, 2010 at 4:01 pm  

      I’m not back from the beach because I was informed by the kids that they have seen the beach plenty but not the new level they had got to.

    23. Jai — on 6th April, 2010 at 10:57 am  

      Happy Easter.
