9-to-5 nightmares

FULL-TIME employment is something I have always distrusted. It requires you to get out of bed at a respectably early hour each morning and at the same time as everybody else, which in a 30-floor chicken coop, makes a mockery of the water pressure coming out of the hand-held telephone receiver in the bath tub's shower.

Love and betrayal on Mother's Day

WHETHER today is what used to be called Mothering Sunday in England, or whether it is the American concoction to the greater glory of Hallmark greeting cards, I have not bothered to find out. All I know is I try not to think about it.

Begging to differ on street urchins

IN SAIGON recently, I was reminded of the irritations of beggary. It is advisable not to pronounce that in pretentious imitation of an upper class English accent or it could come out as something quite different. I saw no evidence of that in Saigon.

Visions through the vodka

DRINKING vodka in Yeltsin volumes does lead to hallucinations, but sometimes I wonder how prolonged they can be. That I drink the stuff will come as no surprise to familiars of mine who regularly call for stretcher bearers in the later evening to take me home. But I did have an unusual experience after an exotic evening at The Ritz Carlton a little while ago.

Sunday is getting bigger - and better

THERE will be no paper next Sunday, December 25, but we will be back on New Year's Day with a bigger, better, brighter Sunday Morning Post.
