The Unspeakable Car
Driving through Dulwich, made the following observation:

'I see people in the field, playing cricket. I can tell because they're all in white and standing about doing absolutely nothing'.

Off to Banksy vs. the Bristol Museum.
  • WOO, yeah, visit the HELL out of that country! ;)

    (I have no idea what I'm saying, I should be in bed...)

    But! If I recall your love of Scotch correctly, you might ask the lovely expat nanila, since I recall a photo of her somewhere in England staring hypnotized at a bottle of some kind of single malt. ;)
    • I've only briefly dipped into Scotch country, and my host fears the Scotch, so I didn't actually... have anything interesting.
      Ah well, I know what I'm buying Duty-Free on the way out the airport.
  • I love how you travel, man. You are hitting all the high points.
    • Thanks! Some of this is me knowing London better than some relatives. I can skip the 'must-do' stuff and go to just the 'want-to-do' stuff.

      BTW: if you're going to be in the UK, Banksy's exhibit's at the Bristol Museum until the end of September.
  • Also, I keep misreading this as "Dunwich", and am now picturing the Dunwich Horror Cricket Side, which distresses me and makes e giggle. (Know how regular cricket bowlers always look a bit odd because of the red streaks on their crotch? I think their ball always comes off greenish no matter what they try.)
    • Pitches and wickets and creases - dire stories of Paul Collingwood and the Twenty - may reproduce themselves in the brain of the avid cricketer - but they were there before. They are transcripts, types - the archtypes are in us, and eternal.
      • *gurgles distressingly from laughing too hard*

        I was trying to come up with something in which the cricket game was in fact an ancestral memory of a summoning spell, but you win.

  • You've hit on the main difference between England and Australia. Here you'd see people in a field wearing white with beers in their hands standing about doing absolutely nothing but drinking.
