Edible Books and Bernard Black

I went to the Edible Books Festival in Boulder - read more at the library blog. I can say that I learned an awful lot about the artistic properties of phyllo dough

On a more exciting note, I went to see "Run Fatboy Run" yesterday - an silly movie, really with one major exception - the divine Dylan Moran played best-friend Gordon - while not so misanthropic as Bernard Black, Gordon (and his delightful bum) reinforced my belief that Dylan Moran is, without a doubt, the funniest man alive
Customer: "Excuse me, those books, leather bound ones... "
Bernard: "Yes, Dickens. The Collected Works of Charles Dickens."
Customer: "Are they real leather?"
Bernard: "They're real Dickens."
Customer: "I have to know if they're real leather, because they have to go with a sofa. Everything else in my house is real. I'll give you 200 for them."
Bernard: "200 What?"
Customer: "200 Pounds."
Bernard: "Are they leather-bound pounds?
Customer: "No"
Bernard: "Sorry, I need leather-bound pounds to go with my wallet. Next!"
