Full house

Despite an image that only shows four of us, and some 3 months later than we expected it might be, we were full house on Friday night. The first time since last October. Met in King's Cross at some pub whose name escapes me, adjourned to the Paolina thai cafe and back to the pub.

I don't have the time I used to have so, in short, under discussion:

Book - Gabrielle Garcia Marquez, My Melancholy Whores (BC)

DA hadn't read it!
And I can't remember what anyone said about it.
Oh yeah, I said it would have been better as a short poem.

CD - Elbow, Leaders of the Free World (DA)

BC thought it was sub-Coldplay.
PG said Elbow one of most underrated bands in the UK.
RE liked it.
DB liked it but couldn't find it to refreash his memory.
BA loved it , as did DA.

A new innovation is to pick the next nominators by playing stone/paper/scissors.

Next up...
