This time last week, Zoesmom and I were stuck in traffic heading towards the George Washington bridge and realising that, if our heads were not almost entirely full of Madonna lyrics (including backing vocals), the power of our combined awesomeness would ensure world domination. Then we went back to singing ‘True Blue’. So this explains not only why the silly men are still in charge, but also why last Friday was a little lacking in the visual treats department.
As compensation, here is a random selection of my latest objects of desire. You, are of course, free not to desire them (although that would defy all comprehension in my world).
Sports cars, high heels… It’s a natural progression to Bond, James Bond. Not just this one book of course. No no no. Penguin have reissued all of them in sexy new covers. I want the set. What do you mean, I already have a complete Bond set? What on earth has that to do with anything? Next you’ll be saying there was no need to watch Casino Royale three times. Which is not true. What is true is that there was no need to watch Quantum of Solace even once, but we can take the argument about the reinvigoration of the Bond franchise offline. And in any case, can we not agree to differ about those two films in shared anxiety that the third is on hold and Daniel Craig may not be in it?
Ah, a little bit of Tiffany. I don’t care much about jewellery and I’m fairly resistant to incessant marketing (not having TV helps). But, I’ve been thinking about the keys for a while, and yes, this one is on the list. I think I’d wear it.
So, my poppets, what’s your heart’s desire? We’ll take world peace and a cure for the common cold as a given and get straight on with the interesting stuff, if you don’t mind.
