notice Pi labels

Notice board.

I am glad that I have read The Life of Pi. Now if I see the widely praised film I won't wonder what the book was  like unaffected by the screen interpretation.

How's this for labelling? In Cameroon two men, I read, are found guilty of being gay on the grounds of their effeminate appearance and on the evidence that they were seen drinking Bailey's Irish Cream.

I loved the book, Life of Pi and our son loved the film, but I'm going to see the film in expectation of it being stunning, but quite different. Same as I'm going to approach going to The Hobbit.

Just returned from seeing Life of Pi. Has become a must read now.

And the labelling doesn't end there. Suppporters of David Cameron, the British prime minister (a diminishing band) are known in the Guardian, if not elsewhere, as the Cameroons. As a result I had some disentangling to do when I first read this post.

Can't quite decide whether to see it, couldn't quite decide what I thought of the book either, though I did enjoy it. I've rather mixed feelings about these films with lots of really snazzy computerised effects.

I wonder if it was the original Baileys or the mint flavoured one?

through a straw, instead of from the bottle like real men ?

AW and E I'm now looking forward to seeing the film. Book and Something to do with letting the wild into out lives.

RR Cameroons, though ambiguous, is a good idea. It's been around in The Independent too.

L Have you ever tried the stuff?

CC It is more than just a gimmick I find. Remarkable how much you can do. And a Happy New Year to you
and to all the cat tribe.
