I’m going to Hay on Wye in half an hour.  I’m not dressed and I haven’t decided what I’m going to talk about when I get there.  There’s something about the Hay literary festival that makes you want to up your game, say something new and exciting, roll out a new theory.  Maybe I’ll announce that in order to get more women and minorities (Americans) involved in British politics, I’m running for the leadership of the labour party.

Last time I was at Hay, I talked about the importance of the potato, in a philosophical, literary sense. If I don’t get moving, they’ll have to get that potato back in to speak in my stead.

    you’d get my vote Meg… thanks for the spud idea, that can be the theme for my event next week. Mashed.

    Not so fast Cathy! I’m thinking I want that spud idea, and I believe my talk is before yours. However, you can have mashed, and I will stick to baked.

      Oh guys, don’t fight over my spud. Get your own vegetable! I hear aubergines are a bit neglected these days.

    Get dressed, woman! The talking will look after itself. It always does. But naked I’m not sure about.
