I bet that headline was irresistible.
I love b/w. But there is something to the angle at which RA has lately been shooting his selfies, that distorts his face. And not to his advantage. But well, including it here for completeness’ sake, right?
And because I need a reason to post and complain. I have been mostly absent over the weekend – and very late in replying to comments – because of my visitor. She is off this lunchtime, though, so expect me to be back to my usual mo soon. Talking of ‘off’ – my bandages will finally come off my leg this afternoon. My leg has been bandaged and encased in a medical support stocking day and night for the past 7 days. Which meant that I was not allowed or able to take a shower. I can’t tell you how much I am hankering for that bathtime later today – followed by a shower.
In other news: I finished The Daughter of Time and thought that the last quarter of the book was much better than the three quarters prior to that. An original premise – and a convincing case. But for an insight into the life and times of RIII, I’d recommend The Sunne in Splendour. Yes, fully fictionalised (and thus to be taken with a grain of salt), but wow, Richard is a bit of a dreamboat… Plus: The Sunne in Splendour convinces with Sir Guy on the cover.
ETA: UM, more importantly to silly earphone photos, RA tweeted a RIP for his cast mate Michael Thomas.
