Biscuit Pixies in Birmingham!
12 November 2014
There are Biscuit Pixies in Birmingham! Mr Davies and I have taken our Grand Tour to the West Midlands, and the Biscuit Pixies have got there before us. Perhaps they are On Tour too.
I am particularly glad of the Birmingham Biscuit Pixies because their produce turns out to be the only thing I have for lunch: I spend the middle part of the day on a train to Cheltenham and the Lunch Pixies do not visit trains, not even to bring green things and floppy bits.
The train is full of drunken students. This is very bad form. When I was a student we only got drunk in the evenings, or occasionally during a chemistry practical. Getting drunk during a chemistry practical was of course purely in the interests of research. There were a lot of solvents around and you needed to know which one would work best for the brown sludge you’d cooked in your conical flask, so there was only one way to find out really. Also you could then have terrific fun pretending the gas chromatography column was a breathalyser, and this generated the most amazing spectra. You should try it some time. Only please do not let on that it was the Vice-President of CIPA who told you to.
