"You're cynical. I thought you would be. Can you sneer?"
"With terrifying effect."
"Oh, do it please! I want to see it!"
"I'm afraid you're much too young to withstand it. I should be accused of stunting your growth--perhaps even sending you into decline."
"I wouldn't go into decline--I'm robust. My governess says so."
The above is from Kate Ross's Cut to the Quick which AMA finally got a hold of on Friday. Joy! The first Julian Kestrel mystery. I've been laying about reading it all afternoon.
Earlier today AMA and I went in for our final brunch with the out-o-towners. We had a delightful meal at Chelsea Market, consisting of cappucino from Buon Italia and various breakfast-y items from Amy's Bread. Then we saw Thomas in Love, the new film from Pierre-Paul Renders. Amusing--some very plausible concepts about life in the near future, mostly in the houseware and hairstyle departments. As for love and agoraphobia--those stay just about as aggravating as they are today. A life in front of the computer with no human contact....why does that sound so tasty to me just now...?
