-Douglas Adams, Cookies: "This actually did happen to a real person, and the real person is me."

-Interview with Anita Brookner at the Telegraph:
There is a delightful story of Brookner arriving at a publishing party, lingering for a few moments with a friend before disappearing in the crush. Two minutes later the friend was surprised to see her making her way back out. 'But Anita,' the friend protested, 'you've only been here five minutes.' 'And I'm so happy that three of them were spent with you,' Brookner replied.

-Juliet Jacques on football:
If I want a poetic take on the inevitability of death I’ll read Beckett, and if I want a critique of Judaeo-Christian values, I’ll read Nietzsche. (You can put your own Joey Barton joke here.) Neither offers the joyful unpredictability of a football match, though, nor any opportunity to tell a small assembly of Grimsby Town fans, through song, that not only are they rubbish, but also that they stink of fish.x
