I'm on the Hume heading West at present. Will be back in Sydney on the 27/1.
3 The Man Who Wasn't There by Michael Hjorth & Hans Rosenfeldt Third book in the series. A combination of personal, psychological and political intrigue weaves a complex web with a multi strand narrative with sufficient twists and turns to keep the reader engaged till the end. Quality Scandi Noir. The only issue is that the next book isn't available till June. Merde!
A quick top ten Casablanca Rififi Seven Samuari Marx Brothers go West Forbiden Planet Groundhog Day Blade Runner Pulp Fiction Heat Chinatown Saw it with MrsGF interesting emotionally charged film dealing with the aftermath of the assassination of JFK. Portman delivers a great performance at times like a lost ghost wandering an empty White House and at others angry and tragically traumatised by Gods bad sense of humour.
Terre D'Hermes EDT 2016 currently a strong mix of orange and pepper. Great pick me up on grey hot day.
Last ten days in Terrigal have had aircon all day while not at Avoca beach. No sign of the sliver bodgie, probably Olli scared him off. Haven't slept properly and I thought the quinine was supposed to help. Effing hate the humidity. CD you talking about 'the change?'
Another cultural quirk of the English language.Wikipedia;In French cuisine, as well as in the English-speaking world (save for the United States and parts of Canada), it is a dish served before the main course.

Washed down with a WA clean skin sauv blanc and a Tasmanian Pipers Brook Pinot Noir 2013. Desert Mango coconut ice cream...

2 The Thing Itself by Adam Roberts Complex SciFi which blends Kantian philosophical concepts, why AI/is and will be essentially different to human consciousness. Throw in time travell and a touch of manic mayhem to create an unpredictable narrative. And to top if off a government conspiracy at the highest level and a demented killer. It made for an interesting and highly recommend read. One of the best SciFi stories I've read in a long time.
A very cold schooner of Four Pines summer ale.
