    The aleatorical elements were overplayed, don't you think?

    Unfortunately, no :)

    I thought BITWC was a pretty conventional film at heart: an overlong and fairly predictable love story, notwithstanding the whack of lesbian porn in the middle. Plus some slightly clunky symbolism and a kind of reactionary subtext about how class will out. Amazing acting though, especially from yer girl Adele.

    Best pub to kill a couple of hours in Saxmundham?

    I cycled through Saxmundham the other day, lucky you. Not quite as pretty as Saxlingham Nethergate. Or maybe Saxthorpe.

    Why does everything have to be called "Great British" whatever at the moment? I suppose it's indicative of some awful post-jubilee retro nostalgic patriotic bullshit. What rot. I mean, pizza?

    Thanks! I've only really ridden it round Norfolk lanes; I think toe overlap might be a slight problem in the city. But I love it.

    Plurabelle, lets see some pictures. It sounds good. I would like to build something similar in the future, the sort of thing Rourke do really well, modern steel road frames.

    Yes, that was the idea. I wanted a modern road bike, but steel, and it's worked really well (though, as I said, I think some people would disagree: it's not your classic Mercian beauty). I'll dig some out when I'm back in the city.

    EDIT: I have this one, before I built it up (ie none of these bits are necessarily the ones I built it up with or in the right position etc). With thanks to Mike at push....

    I've had a Mercian for a while now, and it just keeps getting better and better. I made some unusual design choices with it*, so it doesn't really look like most Mercians -- it's not the prettiest but it is the nicest bike I've ever ridden.

    Nice. I've recently found a wild raspberry bush up the field behind my parents' house. (I clearly win.)

    I was reading Jackie Collins and Jilly Cooper novels when I was 12, if it helps. My mum didn't really mind. I think she was mostly pleased that I was reading beyond my age level.]

    I read Lolita when I was 12 by picking it off the shelf. I was a bit taken aback.
