Murder!!!!!

MOUSE FOUND DEAD IN CAMBRIDGE SITTING ROOM.
Resident cats deny all knowledge.

An mouse was found dead earlier today in the middle of the floor of a Cambridge sitting room. The body showed signs of an attack. Resident cat Miss Telzey denied all knowledge of how this had come to pass. "Kill my own food?" she told our reporter. "I would never do that! I am a Princess, and I expect my food to be properly prepared and presented to me on suitable plates by my human servants. Perhaps it had a heart attack or something. And anyway," she continued, "I was upstairs asleep the entire time."

Her fellow feline residents Horus and Random were unavailable for comment, but sources close to this journal report that at both of them were recently involved in an assault on a juvenile wild rabbit. The household is continuing to investigate.

Skirt of the day: blue tiered.

Ah, but the ref. is the empyrean of literature: Bored of the Rings.

Oh, is that where it comes from? M'wife is always cring "Look, the Winged Victory of Samothrace!" when she needs urgently to distract me. Indeed, when we were in Paris we made a point of pilgrimage to see her. Which was when the scales dropped, and I saw that she had been mischaracterised all this time.

It's the ultimate bad attempt at distraction, is the way it's used in The Book. (Which is only funny if you get sixties American humor, otherwise I suppose it's a curiosity. But I was eighteen when it came out, and my fellow Tolkien nuts used to quote long passages at each other. " . . . making enough noise to wake the dead, if they hadn't already been marching at the rear.")
