    I'll have to give this some thought, but I have been one of the women coming and going, talking of Michelagelo.

    Possibly
    But only if you count the plain ones
    Those fancy creations with enamelled bowls are not much use even if they are ornamental.

    I like coffee spoons - they're so dinky - but I don't own any and rarely come across them so I wouldn't say I measure out my life in them.

    Cereal boxes maybe.

    I inherited a nice set of 12 silver Aspreys coffee bean coffee spoons but I've only ever used them once when I was pretending to be posh. I'm no good at poshness so they went back into the dresser and I just use a teaspoon now. If, then, I'm to measure my life in coffee spoons then I'd come up short.

    I have now finished my second coffee of the day and the caffeine coursing through my veins is encouraging an alternative response.

    I am Prince Hamlet!!!!!!!


    Except I'm not that dithery. So that's not right either.

    Gosh. I am really thick - Prufrock is Prince Hamlet in all his dithering glory, isn't he? He just doesn't realise it.

    Right, I'd better go and do something productive with my stunning literary insight.

    I grow old...I grow old...
    I shall wear the bottom of my trousers rolled. (* makes note to ask Vince if he will do this with his new ones once he's bought them*)

    Ok I've looked it up now but don't feel up to it this morning. I'm enjoying Joan Bakewell's memoir on R4 though. On Midweek she said she wants to continue to get up each day and do something worthwhile in her old age. Define "worthwhile" Joan. I'm spending a day walking with my husband and seeing friends for an amdram performance tonight. I don't know if that lives up to the Bakewell criterion but it does for me, particularly as one of the friends is rather ill.

    it in ladles the masses get it in coffee spoons. Or probably not.

    Sounds alarmingly close to "worthy".

    When I go I hope I will feel that I have contributed in a small way to the future of humankind ("small" .. OK??!!), through various routes.

    But most of my money is on life being a joke, so enjoy, do ,be, take NOW!

    And it is never too late to change or be bold. A day is a day; a week is a week; and so forth.

    Analogous to the nations wealth perhaps? Some get it in ladles the masses get it in coffee spoons. Or probably not.

    Messed up an edit hence the re-write.
