Dolmio, March 2007

Easter weekend and very kindly received a ginormous dark chocolate egg from mother-in-law. As The Boy might say, it's mahoosive. Cracked it open yesterday as an accompaniment to The Daily Show on More 4, and barely made an impact. Walls as thick as Fort Knox and a high level of cocoa solids. Plus a dozen or so truffles on the side. You need a large cuppa Taylor's Rich Italian, then a 50cl bottle of Buxton. Meantime here's last month's Dolmio (Doings Of Last Month Innoparticular Order).

That is to say, an attempt to capture past(a) events before they slip... my... mind. March 2007 was spent:

  • rewatching the marvellous Three Days Of The Condor with Redford and Von Sydow
  • relishing BBC4's Reichenbach Falls, a treat for Rankin and Rebus fans
  • struggling through We by Yevgeny Zamyatin
  • welcoming the return of Life On Mars
  • loving the strong coffee and warm choccy cake in Felixstowe's Little Ice Cream Co.
  • catching up with the delightful Little Miss Sunshine
  • learning lots from Garrison Keillor's daily podcast, the Writer's Almanac
  • experiencing a lifetime's worth of interviews (er, that's two)
  • whizzing through Nick Hornby's Polysyllabic Spree and discovering he'd also read Raise High The Roof Beam
  • overplaying and overwatching Grandaddy's Nature Anthem

And that was March 2007.
