Incident At Wainscotting Manor #66

by

Lavinia made no response. Not five minutes ago she realised that she had come to see Mr Grimper in an entirely different light, though where that light came from and whether it would be left on or turned off remained to be seen. But for now she had made plain to him that she found him strangely attractive: whether he appreciated that she could not be certain, though it appeared that he did. For now, better to leave the ball in his court. A man in his own court soon tires of playing with his own balls, she had learned.

    Haha. I think I understood algebra in school better than I understand women. And I flunked algebra.

    Anyone For Tennis reminded me of an obscure song by Cream.

    Haha! I think that's the one where the live version starts with a frog chorus (not Paul McCartney's!). The first time I heard that song I thought it was Caravan (very Land of Grey and Pink), I remember being shocked it was Cream.

    Yeah, it was actually done for a biker movie called "The Savage 7". Or featured in it, anyway. I'm not sure if it was specifically recorded for it or not.

    Pretty certain I've never seen that, so I'm going to check it out later :)
    It also reminded me of the movie Freebird, which I saw many years ago - another biker/acid movie which I remember being pretty good and very funny in parts. Must dig that one again soon too. :)

    I just looked it up. It was done specifically for the movie. I haven't heard that in years and I forgot how incredible those lyrics were. Or maybe I didn't appreciate them when I was younger, but it is amazing poetry.

    It is, I agree. Very surreal, but it makes a point in a powerful way.
