Thin Lizzy, Dazed and Confused, fresh cut grass, endless summer (not the movie), a Pretenders song; the sensations that I associate with these various artists or themes come to me strongly with Do You Have An Innie Or An Outtie?

The frost of Viennese winter has broken and a May summer, brought by global warming, arrived in late April. 

The lines of the plot are not exactly clear but I asked friends to throw a party.  They knew they had to bring in the out of town talent. I was expecting extra beer and maybe some Chippendales dancers, Tostitos®, and the 100ml bottles of Crodino.

I heard June’s Hamper’s talisman should arrive, Anna wrote a beautiful post card saying she just found some records and oversized inserts from The Lemonheads; Kah Bee emailed to say that “orbs better than ecstasy will roam the winter garden,” whatever that means; and Peggy hired venetian acrobats. I heard the twins from Italy are bringing an inflatable pool.
