Pickle Me This

March 5, 2006

Weekend

Our weekend was fun, in that we spent Friday in the wonderful company of Natalie Bay (whose URL I entered incorrectly before), and then Saturday night with the Lui/Doerings and we got to see Walk The Line at the Varsity! It was wonderful, and I’ve spent the hours since lusting after Reese Witherspoon’s hair (not to mention Joaquin).

On cyberlibel. I find it odd how threatened people are by these “unsophisticated publishers”. A more sophisticated publisher urges us to boycott Google. He uses the old, “It’s the authors who will suffer most” line. Ha ha ha. An interview with Leah McLaren in The Star. She says that “she TRIES to provoke debate” which is “her job at a columnist. I fear she is confusing “debate” with “venomous wrath”. This article makes a case for literary imitation. On being a writer in Zimbabwe.

I am still absolutely adoring “Reading Lolita in Tehran” and plan to finish it in a hot bath this evening. I also baked an absolutely perfect lemon almond cake yesterday afternoon. From a different cookbook of course.
