Yikes. Well, in my case I've got a quote-heavy post entitled "Quote of the day 6 October 04: Canadian submarines and The West Wing..."

The post is on the selling of some rather duff submarines to the Canadian forces by the British Navy. Reminded of a scene in The West Wing from one of my favourite episodes, the 5th sentence is actually a line of Sam Seabourne's dialogue - "Don't buy these ships" - a phrase I felt could be easily adapted to the real-life scenario on the news.

And you thought my blog was all about the ramblings of me: most times I just take the words of other writers. And the following post? Well, of course, it was back to Joss Whedon...

Who next? Volunteer yourselves folks; I've had a busy week!

From July 2000, on the occasion of the opening of Tate Modern on the South Bank of London. Oh, what memories...
