About me

Gender FEMALE
Occupation Some time poet, and international woman of mystery
Location United Kingdom
Introduction I'm Candide Peel. I have, variously, had breakfast with an Orang Utan, served dinner to a Monkee, and travelled across Bristol on a bus with an armadillo. I once saw a zebra with a surfboard driving up the Edgeware Road in London in a Citroen 2CV. There were no drugs involved on my part. I can't speak for the zebra though. I've done a bit of being a poet. And even more of not being a poet. Oh, and I have Opinions. Lots of 'em. This blog is a dump for them; for random thoughts that entertain me; small events I feel a need to record somehow; and other stuff that grabs my attention in the moment.
Interests Stuff. And some other stuff too.
Favorite Movies The Draughtsman's Contract, The Leopard, Die Hard, Predator, Calamity Jane, anything with Fred Astaire dancing, Frost Nixon, and usually the last film I saw (with the notable exception of Prometheus!)
Favorite Music Oh, all kinds. Depends on what I'm doing; what my mood might be; and even what the weather is!
Favorite Books See music. Although I have to confess a grand love of 'The Glass Bead Game' by Hermann Hesse. God, how much do I want to see that game being played?!

Chicken monkey shoes?

Chicken monkey shoes are absolutely the best means of getting to the apex of mascarpone without crampons.
