we're all going out to a nice gastro pub for a lunchtime meal. my immediate family and some friends. i hope it's nice. it's a place we've been many times and he loves it and the owner loves him or is at least a good enough host to make like she loves him and it should be good
i hope it isn't too much for him though. he gets so tired so easily these days. but i spoke to him tonight on the phone and he sounds in good spirits and i think it should be good


it was my book group on monday, and i think it went well. fathers & sons. everyone except one person loved it and everyone had things to say. BUT i feel in a way everyone liked it too much? because the book debate/discussion died out after an hour and it went onto other things and honestly, f*ck other things. i just want book discussion. but no one was contentious enough to get a real good conversation going

then on friday it's my xmas work team group's meal we organised at the local indian place which should be nice. christmas already seems like a million years ago and even though it's been like a fortnight since i saw some of them it'll be so nice to catch up. nice, and weird. the way you're in this intense environment with these people and then it's all over and now what holds you together? most of them have left now. it'll be interesting. i hope i don't get too drunk


talking of which because i don't have to work tomorrow and it's not january i'm totally drinking.
and listening to the national which goes hand in hand with drinking for me

actually the song i wanted to post was empire line but for some reason the only versions of that one are live ones i don't care for as much
but this is good too
i love the line 'i was walking around like the one who found dead john cheever' so much

i wonder how many posts until i'm warned

Happy birthday, grandfish!

Happy Birthday to SkyGrandPaFish!!

Are you going to organize a shunning of the lone person that didn't like Fathers and Sons?

I guess that's fair...

if anything i'm annoyed she wasn't more outspoken with her opinions, stimulating stronger discussion

Sometimes it is good to have a dissenter in the ranks...

Although, F&S is a hard book to not like.

i'm glad you feel that way
so do i

i picked it specifically to be nice to everyone after picking satantango the previous year

this one lady didn't care for the young people at all and found them obnoxious and it tainted her enjoyment of what she thought the book was
but personally i also found bazarov obnoxious but relatable to how it is to be a know it all young man and it felt like story about how the other guy escapes his stupid influence and grows up and becomes a nicer, wiser person and there's so many other characters besides who are interesting and richly and sympathetically drawn apart from the 'sons' and uncle pavel is clearly the best tbh
