Excellent. Um, very concise list and with all those shoes you are ready for action. With, say, a Canadian. I'm sure they're easy to find in Bath.

Margaret said...

Will you just make out with a freaking Canadian already?!

Alison said...

The only Canadians in Bath I know are female (a surprising number of them though). Will that do?

Jessica said...

You can do it! (The book, not the carrot cake, because really, carrot cake is mostly evil.)

The Gap is completely evil though, imho ... what were you doing in there and who brainwashed you into it?

What's the deal with all this talk of my countrymen/women? Bath is teeming with them, or something?

Hello Jessica

Someone kissed a Canadian in Bath twenty years ago so now apparently I have to too. I am not doing well on this part. Words, a little better.

Sure Alison, Female is fine, but they mustn't be grossed out by DISGUSTING FEET. said...

think 18 tweets is brilliant. i don't. because i can't understand how to. hope bath means you are soaked in literary inspiration?

I thought that Deutsch for Rabbit was "Hasen", or something similar sounding possibly completely differently spelled. Grandma used to make cookies she called "Hasen Ohren" because they looked like bunny ears.

I will shut up now.

If it helps at all, remember that Jane Austen detested bath.

Martini Restaurant is terrific and a very cheery place. You could even take your laptop / ms. (They have a website if you'd like to look it over.)

No. 1 Royal Crescent is a gorgeous, bite-sized museum - a completely restored Georgian townhouse - I visit with delight every time I'm there.

These days, there's some kind of 'not a rabbit' spirit in the air: earlier today, while walking Mr O the dog, I suggested to a colleague in the park to let his dog run free (with Oscar) and he replied "My dog is not a rabbit"...(the shit gmail password forgotten = I am anonymous)
