About this card: bright sideI dislike funerals 'cause afterwards you have to go and mill about at someone's house and there is always potato salad covered in plastic wrap. And I really hate potato salad. But my job requires that I write Sympathy Cards, so I have to brush all the nausea under a metaphorical rug and be professional about death. Today's card? Consummate professionalism about death right there.
@JonnyGeller Tim Allen is also former drug dealer; caught with 650g of cocaine he ratted out 21 colleagues. Not a terribly nice individual.
The Theory of the Leisure Class, Thorstein Veblen. Maps for Lost Lovers by Nadeem Aslam. Tigerman by Nick Harkaway. It's a fun list.
I'm in the south of Spain making a list of the next hundred books I want to read. The most immediate: The Silk Roads, by Peter Francopan.
