“If you’ve done 6 impossible things this morning, why not round it off with breakfast at Milliways, the Restaurant at the End of the Universe?”
― Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
A day late but hopefully not a dollar/pound short. My week consisted of a series of increasingly difficult tasks that at one point veered far out of realm of probability before I managed to drag them back. And I was not alone, the whole of the office team was well and truly snowed under and tempers were high, eyes suspiciously bright, and everyone was ready to burst. In short, a weekend was needed. Desperately. Here are your links and tell me what you’re getting up to!

I shan’t trouble you with the story of how this came into my presence, but I thought all and sundry needed to know it existed.
A long history of courtesan culture in Japan featuring beautiful kimonos, the male gaze, the rise of the shogunate, and more.
If you build it…someone somewhere will want to keep on building it.
Sometimes I don’t think we comprehend how incomprehensible it was, not that long ago, that practically everyone in the developed world (and a surprising number of the undeveloped world) would have personal phones. That we carry around with us. In our pockets.
Bring these back, I want to brunch in one of them.
One thought on “Saturday Links”
Fun links! You CAN brunch in a guinguette — as I did in Paris recently; there is one at the Porte de Clignancourt flea market. It’s a hoot.
