Monday 26 July 2010: BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE
I am beset by wonky wires at the moment as this morning the wire to my telephone handset sheared off (I wondered if the cat had been chewing it during the night) and now I cannot receive or make telephone calls via the land line. Add that fact to my existing laptop problems (wiggled wonky wire is still working) and I am soon to be incommunicado.
It has been a dull and overcast day here and so I am not too unhappy that I have to stay in to await the arrival of a visitor. However, that has limited my blip opportunities but, for some reason, Phillip Marlowe's play Bell, Book and Candle has been in my mind (I don't know why as I have not read it) and so I decided that I would experiment with the 'ingredients' of the play.
Something was not ringing true with attributing the play to Phillip Marlowe and so I had a look on the internet and discovered that it was written by a guy named John van Druten and not by Mr Marlowe at all (I am not a great film buff but I think Phillip Marlowe was a character in films - thanks for the tip off, Matt).
