Necrothreading much?

Article content

Article copy

Alice Bachini has taken my recent Crystal Nights post as a stepping stone to bring the issue home in such an insightful and pertinent way that it would be superfluous to add anything else but go read it now.

As a matter of fact, although we both attended the last Blogger Bash at the Samizdata HQ, I missed the pleasure to enjoy her conversation: I believe she was the lady whose attention was egotistically monopolized all the evening by Brian Micklethwait, even though on these pictures he's acting as if he's not.

Alice Bachini a pris mon récent post Nuits de Cristal comme point d'appui pour amener le sujet dans notre contexte d'une manière si pertinente et efficace qu'il serait superflu d'ajouter quoi que ce soit d'autre que allez la lire maintenant.

De fait, bien que nous ayons participé tous deux au dernier Blogger Bash au QG de Samizdata, j'ai manqué le plaisir de jouir de sa conversation : je crois qu'elle était la jeune femme dont l'attention fut égoïstement monopolisée toute la soirée par Brian Micklethwait, en dépit du fait que sur ces images il feint de n'en rien faire.

Hehe, well let's see if I can turn a Californian green then: If I had been sitting in that tree, you'd have a whole bunch of reasons to BE jealous Papertiger. Trust me. Don't know about Val, but I pretty much enjoyed your joke. No apology needed as far as I'm concerned. Made me wonder if you'd been talking to someone tho. Turning green already?
Time to take sides
