St. Martins publicity department said today that Gosh TV wants me to answer some questions on the book. Happy to oblige, I said, even though I don't know what Gosh TV is - yet. I am sure I will soon.

"Gosh" is an expression that went out in Britain years ago, meaning "wow". I still catch myself using it sometimes. I used it today, when Kath said that she'd had a totally unsolicited letter from Camden Council's parking department, saying that they'd decided they had made a mistake with the parking ticket they gave her a while ago - so they were refunding her fine.



These are the people who put parking tickets on ambulances on emergency calls! Or on cars parked one inch outside of the white lines.

I think I just saw a pig flying past the window.
