  • I’m not really sure what to make of this article about a French novelist who faked his entire autobiography and pretended to be an imaginary person so that he could win the same award two years in a row, but I’m going to leave it right here anyway.
  • Last week, Sørina Higgins‘s Christmas present to everyone was a (fictional) story about Charles Williams and C. S. Lewis going on an impromptu road trip. They talked Romantic Theology, they debated the nature of the Arthurian legends, Williams flirted with a barmaid, and the whole thing was recorded on the @Oddest_Inkling Twitter account. You can find the compendium of those tweets here.

That’s all for now. Happy New Year, everybody!

  1. Yes to the last one! I thought it was like the (to-my-child-eyes) amazing-looking prepackaged strudels I would see in the grocery store. Something involving a yummy crust and jelly and frosting and a sprinkly topping. I was in my 30s before I got to try some actual Turkish Delight, and I was not delighted.

    1. I had some Turkish Delight once (a friend of my aunt’s got some straight from Turkey), only instead of the usual fruit, it was flavored with pistachios. It wasn’t bad, but I certainly wouldn’t sell out my brother and both my sisters to get more. 😉

I love the movies, which is why I like to blame them for everything.
