Two wholly non-psephological matters - Wemyss's Appalling Hobby:
From the Party Guilty of Committing 'Gate of Ivory, Gate of Horn'
Two wholly non-psephological matters

Firstly, that books thingummy.  You know the drill.


·        Grab the nearest book.

·        Open the book to page 56.

·        Find the fifth sentence.

·        Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.

·        Don’t dig for your favourite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.


RESULT:  ‘But now, Miss Minnychip, consider.’  (Sir John Appleby, in Appleby and the Ospreys)


Secondly, I will write of Saturday’s party a little later.  I will say that – particularly on a youth such as Amin Khan, with his colouring – an incredibly-pale-green cashmere jumper is scrumptious.  (And would be still more so were, and when, it were the only thing he’s wearing, but one must have certain standards at parties.)  Whether it is something a man who’s not at least a trifle bent could wear, is another question entirely, one complicated by cross-cultural considerations.
