Riffing off one of Leonard Cohen's more unfortunate poems:

The summer pants
I bought fifteen pounds ago
I can wear them now.
It is never too late.
I advise you all
To become high cholesterol pre-diabetics.

Of course autumn and its teen C weather has come back again, and of course these are still billowy trousers unsafe for biking in. But still.

Am also now in possession of Susannah Clarke's Piranesi and will hunker down with it in these next few rainy days, once I'm done with the books on the go.
