If you live in Britain and you follow this journal, you may wish to go and get yourself this week's Spectator and look up the 'Dear Mary' column for your amusement.
I am not sure whether the little picture will be readable. If not, double click. It is all thanks to my old pal Jeremiah, who ran into Dear Mary at a London cocktail party. He drew her attention to an old blog post of mine regarding Offending Feet on Tables.

All hail - for once - the fatuous London cocktail party circuit. The diplo-mate's tentacles are everywhere! And I do think your statement of the dilemma is worthy of a literary award in itself.

Do hope you're coming in December after all.

Ah, Davide!
I am not coming now!
I would have loved to see you but in the end I could not justify spending British Library Funds on a London visit since the problems have ironed themselves out, at least for the moment.
Let's plan something fab in the spring! Have you ever been to St. Petersburg?
lots love

Have I ever been to St Petersburg?? Shto ti (what are you like), Sofia!

I think the south-coast Iceland experience would be just the thing, though - but not until late May or June.

Ah, yes indeed. What AM I like? of course you have been to St. Petersburg... Is that where Shosta..ooops! Prokofief came from?

Sophie I think Mary's suggested solution of a bespoke footstool for 'the feet on the table' problem is an excellent suggestion'!!
