Manufactured event to meet the neighbours. It was a great day for it: 33.3 °C and 12.47 kWh of sunshine. Admin2 sulked. Admin1 went along and won a prize.
Admin1 is reading The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. by Neal Stephenson and Nicole Galland (entertaining froth, but overlong; Adam Roberts’ Guardian review got it right, in that it’s written like a comedy without actually being very funny). Admin2 is reading Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner. And we scored 8.5, thanks to generous marking, on the Guardian Weekend Quiz.
