This post on the young fogey movement in G.B, linked the other day by Christine, suddenly planted in my mind a strong desire to dash back into the works of Mr. Wu again.  In the last forty eight hours, I’ve polished off Decline and Fall, Vile Bodies and Black Mischief, none of which I had read in the past few years.

How wickedly laugh-making.  A glass of wine with you, Christine, for the inspiration!

(And for those of you thinking to yourselves, “You’re something of a young fogey yourself, aren’t you, Robbo,” I would simply say that based on the increasing gray in my hair, my need for bifocals and the way my knees are aching this morning, “fogey full stop” is probably closer to the mark.)

The eldest gel, under her own steam, was actually out of bed, dressed and ready to leave the house before I was this morning.

How creepifying…….
