DIM

I can do restaurant reviews.
I can.

*****

A nice thing to do is go out to eat.

We went out to eat at Panda Dim Sum in Leytonstone.

It is not dim sum made of pandas.

It is hot.

The food is spicy and hot and the place gets steamy.

The food is delicious.

You bring your own wine.

*****

You must not do your business on the floor when you get home.

JOLLY

Everyone just joins in and it turns into a jolly nice discussion.
Philosophy for All Saturday seminars @Bishopsgateinst.
The topics are really great.
They do other things and the place does other things.
And it feels all wonderfully clever and londony and it makes you want to read and Google things.
