Off to the Colour House Theatre again last night for the thoroughly enjoyable Importance of Being Earnest. Great night, you should go as well. (Also, from the small world department, I see that Peter Gill is doing it with Penelope Keith later this year.)

Apropos of this, I have been working on automatic procedures for generating Wildean nonsense this morning. Think of a word, pull a synonym and antonym out of a thesaurus and then plug into a standard phrase you happen to have about your person. Or make an assertion, drop in a conjunction, then reverse the words ..... etc

A charade being the last refuge of the candid, these days it is considered charming to be indiscreet but indiscreet to be charming ....... etc.
