Walked to work this AM, which took exactly the length of time as the 2nd disk of The Hippopotamus. Walking to work with Stephen is quite pleasant and this may turn out to be the first ever book I ever finish listening to this way. I'm tempted to call it "book on tape" but that seems so dated. Audio-book, I guess.
Congratulations and Jubilations to Eve Myles on the birth of her baby, Matilda.
I'm sure baby is as lovely as mummy. (To the extent that any newborn baby is lovely and does not resemble either a sack of turnips or Winston Churchill.)
