Culture, various

Since last Thursday I've seen Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, gone to hear my friends D and M sing in the Mozart Requiem at St Peter's Cathedral (in Adelaide), and listened to an utterly delightful conversation on the radio between those two stalwarts of Melbourne intellectual life, Professor Stuart Macintyre and Dr Michael Cathcart.

All of these have been snuck into the cracks between the work, and I am determined to blog about all of them. Just as soon as the marking's done.

you have friends with the initials 'D & M'...very deep and meaningful!

DO you know, that had never occurred to me till this very minute. They're actually mother and daughter -- have known D since she was 17 and M since she was born. The Requiem was performed by AUCS, in which M is a hard-core stalwart among the First Sops.
