I watched the first ten minutes of Christopher and His Kind because I wanted to see how Matt Smith handled a role very unlike the one we know and love him for. Having ascertained that he does self-contained as well as he does daffy I switched off because I already knew the story. That's the trouble with being 60: you already know all the stories. Besides where was the atmosphere? Where was the Germanness? Why was that chuffer train chuffing through English meadows?|
Neutering hasn't yet cured the rabbit boys of their ambition to be top rabbit- or their love of a fight. It never cured Tosh either. Ailz worries about their short term well-being (one of them has unpicked his wound) and I worry about bonding three bunny Napoleons over the long term. This is why we wanted females, goddammit- and why I'm still a bit cross about the sales assistant sexing them wrong.
I did a bit of decorating yesterday- painting over some of the scars the workmen left behind.
