Lovely sunny weather today, so ambled down to the Blue Cherry (local milkshake/smoothie emporium) with Emma to share a cooling drink. I happened to be wearing my Claude Cahun-inspired "I am in training. Don't kiss me" t-shirt, and the guy behind the counter (who was looking very sleep-deprived, poor dear. They're open till midnight 5 or 6 nights a week, and he seems to work by far the most hours there. And he doesn't even own the place.) charmingly asked if it was a play on "I'm working- don't pet me", which apparently some guide dogs have printed on their harnesses. I was a bit baffled, but amused none the less. Maybe I should tell people that this is what the t-shirt is referring to from now on, rather than it being a slightly pretentious reference to some gender-bending political 1920's lesbian artist.

We then trundled on to Chloe's house, where her and her charming new American friend Claire were making 6 (!) pizzas, all from scratch, to be eaten that evening. They were delicious (a choice of two sets of toppings were on offer- pesto with sundried tomato, and goats cheese and red onions), though I felt rather full by the end; like I had eaten so much of the stuff, it had filled all available room in my stomach upwards and was in danger of coming out of my eyeballs. Also, I learnt that apparently, in America,  you don't have to choose the major subject of your university course until you actually get there. I can see some potential major advantages to this, though how do they ensure there is enough places on popular courses to meet student demand? It's a very interesting idea, though.

Good quote in the Times today from an unspecified model: " I don't want to be attractive to men, I want to be attractive to gay fashion designers!"

Lastly; I know I'm a bit late with this, but have you lot seen the artwork for Kelis' new album? I don't really follow her music, but the cover is pretty wow-worthy: . There is something about it that reminds me of the promo posters for Fritz Lang's Metropolis, with the evil Robot Maria, which is obviously a Very Good Thing.
