I was rather hoping that Nigella Lawson Queen of Gastroporn would accompany me to the Willow Manor Ball this year but I haven’t heard from her.

With hostess gorgeous pouting Tess Kincaid one is guaranteed an evening of shining wit and sparkling conversation, as well as unlimited alcoholic refreshment, and as she herself once pointed out, the ball mysteriously lasts for 24 hours.

Still, I’ll be getting the Jag fixed up and arriving in some style to drink and dance and flirt outrageously with all of the women and even some of the men. Cheers!
