lom sam fu

crud

I'm wearing my best scratchy skirt and my best scratchy shirt today as I'm off to a gallery opening tonight. No, nothing posh or fancy - I don't get invited to those openings (and the Peanut Gallery will never, ever take me as his plus one).

No, this is a regional gallery so it'll be wall to wall Hyacinth Buckets, hence my very best Aunt wear (ie, vetted by Aunts). It's a vaguely terrifying prospect, being plunged into a seething nest of Hyacinths. I mean, Jane Austen squeezed several books out of that very horror. But one must, if one wants to appear open to invitations and social dos.
