yup - i heard an interview with her and was so taken that i bought her book. now i am reading it.

game of crones (La Lechera), Wednesday, 20 June 2012 15:07 (eight years ago) link

I might check it out. I always thought it was interesting that it actually wasn't a sex thing and that (as far as I understand it) they were treated well and showered with gifts and that for most of them the biggest problem was boredom and being away from home.

(✿◠‿◠) (ENBB), Wednesday, 20 June 2012 15:22 (eight years ago) link

Oh, that's weird -- from what I gather it was definitely a sex thing. What I like about it is that she totally seems like a real person by virtue of how clearly she illustrates what was going on -- she's really good at writing about her own life and communicating who she is (or who she wants us to think she is) and also moving the story along.

bread crisps which appear to be a Polish snack. Hadn't seen them before about 3 weeks ago when I was looking around a local Polish shop and was introgued by this rack that seemed to be filled with different flavours of them. There's some I don't like much and some that I really love. There's a black bread garlic version that I can't get enough of, a Wasabi a couple of variatons of onion with sour cream and a few other things that verge on the garlic/spicy . Actually I think I don't like the ones that aren't that spicy but think I'll give another run through of the various flavours.

Clinton Walker's Styranded history of the Australian underground scene from punki to the mid 090s when it was originally released. IT now has some added footnotes where Walker can talk from hindsight. Some of them are quite extensive.
I wasn't aware of how poor the Australians in London were in the 80s. Do wish I'd read this at the time it was released and would have loved to know its contents earlier still. BUt 20/20 hindsight etc.
HIs Inner City Sound was pretty good too. Do wish I'd known there was a cd companion to the book back in 2005 though , looks like its contents are pretty great.
I've been listening to a number of the bands he mentions through Spotify . must get the Voigt 465 compilation physically.

Star Wars spin off animations which for some reason I'd never seen. I think I had watched a cartoon Clone Wars and nothing after now on season 4 of that and 2 of Resistance and finished Rebels which had me wondering if the timeline does actually dovetail with the Mandalorian.
exotic mixers or rather obscure flavours of pop with spirits. Vimto and gin last night, Tangoria with things. Fanta's mnore obscure flavours , Rubicon tropical fruit variations. BUt should be avoiding coca cola products cos they is evil.
Dunnes still doing specials on spirits which I guess tehy will continue to do but the comibiantion discount on beers has been outlawed recently.

Stevie, I do one of two or three routes, usually. The one I like best is my house (54 and Locust, more or less) through MillCreek and Mantua over to the Belmont Plateau via Belmont, Chamounix Drive down to the Strawb Mansion bridge, up into East Park past all the mansions, right at Coltrane's/the driving range, down to the museum...I used to take the river path back up through Penn and into west, but since there's that big detour still, I've been either going back via West River or giving myself an easier time and going back via Spring Garden. I also do the opposite ride, which is much hillier, but puts one out on the massive downhill near Parkside and the shopping center on 52nd...that downhill is one of my favorites in the city.
