Monday 4th April
Today Sandi was mostly worried about getting Creosote off of her hand (she'd just shaken hands with Robert Kilroy-Silk) Also why the diaries of Pepys, Hans Christian Anderson, Joe Orton and Kenneth Williams all had records of how many times they had self-abused? Sandi also spoke of Pope Joan, who pretended to be a man and became Pope, unfortunately she gave birth during a Papal procession and her disguise was compromised. In amongst this madness was Stella Duffy and author of 'Tales of the Country' Brian Viner. (Simon and Schuster) oh and
The Pudding Club of Great Britain and The Bakewell Pudding Shop.
