Food, inglorious food

This is quite fitting because I’m actually hungry (which for this time in the morning is highly unusual). It’s a topic that comes up quite a lot at home, at work and out and about because I have a very strange relationship with food.

Transformer

What an absolutely sublime album. Say what you will about his recent dabble with Metallica, listening to prime time Lou Reed is hard to beat.

My first Hemingway.

I don’t know why it has taken me so long to read anything by dear Ernest, he fits perfectly into what I consider a great writer to be, he’s frank and courteous and at times poor and angry at the world.
