In Borders this afternoon I was stopped in my tracks by a sign - Speed-dating - sign up here.

I read the whole notice. Twice.



I am not interested in speed-dating, OK?

But Borders is a book shop, I mused, while flicking through magazines, so attendees will be people who read books. Hmmm, possibly not such a bad idea....

I sauntered casually past again, but this time I noticed a second sign.

Borders' Book Club - this month 'The Five People you Meet in Heaven'

Christ Almighty. I ran.


  • Move away from the speed dating...

  • The very fact that you considered it means you should immediately seek therapy.

    How odd - George Bush was just on the news saying exactly the same thing...

  • a wise woman will learn from GSE and LC's respective suffering!

    p.s. I read that book, I don't know what all the fuss is about, I gave it to my Mom.

  • Bizzarely, my boss bought me that book for my birthday last year. It's DREADFUL.

  • I got made to read it at the book group thing we used to go to. Book groups (especially not the one we went to) are not a good place to meet men.
