Maybe I Should Resist. I'm A Fool, I Know...
Spent all my book token money on things I didn't want all that much. Thing is, I can get them much cheaper online, so I tend to go to Foyles and buy posh  stationery, like a notebook  to take to Riga.
I think there's something wrong with the filling I got on Wednesday. Maybe it's just  sensitive because of going in right next to the new crown, but it keeps giving me little 'electric shocks' Fap!
R was bending over the pathway rescuing worms. I walked next to her...Suddenly, she let rip with this brain-busting shriek, like in INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (Cartoon to come...) and leapt at me and the trolley, trying to push me off the pavement. I was terrified, thought a wind-blasted tree was coming down on us. She angrily replied I'd nearly trod on one of the worms she was trying to save. Then she did exactly the same thing again, nearly shoving me into the mud, and griping about how I wasn't listening to her, and had almost fatly flattened another (quite dead!) worm... I wish someone had filmed this.

Rescuing worms. FFS. After all these years she continues to surprise me.

I went to see Peter Grimes last night, BTW. The two main singers had been struck down with bronchitis (as had their understudies) so we had two substitutions, who were actually both excellent and very warmly received. I'm curious to see the proper cast though, so may go to the live broadcast on Sunday the 23rd. Apart from the "nieces", I actually thought the people of the Borough were well within the normal range of small-town weirdness. Maybe they're just underplayed in most productions. People *are* odd (I mean, look at R!).

I don't know what FFS means.Yet another dementia symptom, no doubt!
Good idea, actually, to re-visit PETER GRIMES, and see what the usual cast members are lik. The tenor obviously wasn't giving it the throttle at the rehearsal, and was still pretty powerful, although Philip Langridge is still best evah, to my taste.
I hear you about the secret weirdness lurking in isolated communities. I'm sure there's any amount of 'Fred and Rose' horror going on unnoticed. Te strangest, to me was the apothecary/pusher who's usually a jovial, slightly naughty Jack the lad, but seemed outstandingly creepy, to me, in this version.
Re:worms, R thinks they 'deserve' to live more than most people.

FFS = "For Fuck's Sake". A useful acronym where R is concerned, though not one used by "superior" people, obviously.

The apothecary was very creepy, from the first moment he comes on stage. I've been mentioning the broadcast to musical friends, so we'll see if they go, and if we get to compare notes.
