Holiday post number 05

I own a nightshirt, which I wore last night. It bears a quotation from Oscar Wilde: "Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast". Well, last night bedtime was at 4am: this morning at half-eight, Robert and I were the only brilliant ones here. Is this a bad sign?

Today we went to the quarry used for the location shoot as Ancient Magrathea in the HHGTTG.
Absolutely brilliant. Included JonJo taking a photo of Simo with the Heart-Of-Gold not in the background, for the "ground-breaking web campaign" which is going on for some owd book or other.

We followed this with a trip to the Eden Project, also very good.

Flick asks two questions in a response to an earlier post:
- Yes, we are having fun.
- There are fifteen of us:
Mr and Mrs Simo, Mr and Mrs JonJo, Mr and Mrs Kevin Kevin Davies and his son Liam (not Proven), the other Liam (lproven), Robert Newman, Leon McCavity, Jerry Thomas, Poppy, Erika, Grant Cribb, Alan (Zaphod) and Myself.
