Just a short post today to try and keep up my goal of posting two or three times a week. I have a day out in Cambridge planned for tomorrow, ostensibly to catch up with a friend I haven’t seen for a while, but there will be some drinking involved, I have no doubt. Due to the appalling nature of the buses in the area I live I need to catch the 09:15 bus, which is the only bus that leaves all day (except the 07:30 one). This gets me into Cambridge pretty early in the day and so I should have the opportunity to visit a couple of book shops before I meet my friend.

After we meet up it will most likely involve a tour of the many pubs in town. I am going to take the advice given to me by shaunaborthwick and take along a notebook. I do usually try to do this but I generally never end up writing anything. On this occasion I think I will make an effort to use the notebook early on, rather than later in the day when there is a distinct danger of my never understanding what I have written. This should be the last weekend that I am out for a while. It always seems to be the way. You spend weeks without going out and then all of a sudden there is a glut of invites to go out, and after that nothing. I have enjoyed meeting all of my old friends recently, but now I shall be looking forward to getting a bit more order back into my life, more routine.

For those of you that have been following my progress with Proust’s ‘In Search of Lost Time’, you will be pleased to know that I have almost finished, and depending on how I feel on Sunday I should be able to finish this weekend. More on this when I have completed it. Have a great weekend!

    • I don’t go out drinking very often, but when I do like a bit of variety. I generally find it very dull staying in the same place all evening (or day in this case). I’ll have a drink for you 🙂


      • Thanks. I only drink during NY Giants season and that’s usually picking a sports bar to claim a table for watching the game. I think I’m at the point where I’m good as long as I have good friends to hang out with. 🙂


    • Thanks I will try to enjoy it, and I will have a drink for all the people commenting 🙂 The journey with Proust has been long, but I have enjoyed it immensely. I would like to try ‘Les Rougon-Macquart’ by Zola (20 books) but think I need a break from that sort of literature for as bit.


    • Thanks Ionia. Have a good weekend too. I am not sure what thoughts I will have to put down though. I think I would need to read it again a few more times to really understand what it’s all about 🙂
