Events Of The Past 36 Hours

I had meant to go shopping yesterday afternoon, but I had the TV on for Wimbledon- and Federer's opening match against Alejando Falla- instead of being a walkover- went to five sets and was a damn near-run thing so I never did.

BBC 4 had a programme last night in which very old people remembered how lovely their fathers were. It was very moving.

It was noisy on Meldrum Street last night. I went to the bathroom shortly after midnight and someone was shouting hysterically at someone else to "get off my fucking bike". I listened a while and it just went on and on. Thankfully Meldrum Street is entirely inaudible from our bedroom.

There was a butterfly in the bathroom first thing this morning, flapping against the frosted glass. I got my hands round it and helped it through the open window.

My friendjorrocks_j sent me Warren Zevon's "Don't Let Us Get Sick", which I'd never heard before. It's beautiful. I expect to be singing it in my head all day.
