We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

Field-dressing a moose

"I'll be decking him!" mutters Bronwyn.

So far this week she's done an author visit and two reading groups' Xmas parties; done reader support visits to two Social Care Learning Centres and to a homeless shelter; and unpicked the orders that can't be sent after T.Aldous took the money out of what was left of the book fund.

Arriving back from the shelter at lunchtime she was accosted by T.Aldous who berated her because the display window upstairs hadn't been updated since the beginning of November.

"We should have a Xmas display in there now!" he eventually mithered.

And so we should. Except:
  • The display window's got nothing to do with Bronwyn.
  • The Library Assistants who were planning on updating the window haven't had the chance because they've spent the past two weeks out of the building, providing cover for people who are no longer there.

We'll miss this if he ever goes.

"...if he ever goes"? You mean he might be there to stay, like the fixtures and fittings, or a disembodied spirit??

T. Aldous could be censured by the Council; Christmas displays in Public buildings are largely banned for fear that they offend multiculturalists and minority religionists who weren't born here but have a right to be cosseted.

He does sound a real charmer - and thick with it.

Gadjo: let's just say that we'd need convincing.

Affer: and the laugh of it is that the local Asian communities love Xmas - they see it as an extension of the joys of Eid and Diwali.

Pat: he's nice enough, just a little odd.
