Last night I arrived in Axminster around 5, waited 20 minutes for a bus, dropped my bags off, then went for a walk around town. My goal became to find a fossil walk I could go on today, but I also found dinner (steak, a rare indulgence) annd a movie (Inception) and got a call from shevek. My steak was fine, but Inception bored me 45 minutes in and failed to redeem itself for nearly 2 hours more. Rififi is a much better thriller/caper flick; all of Richard Morgan's books are more imaginative. Alas.
I'm set for my walk: it's at ten by the seaside. Later tonight I will see The Rat's Tale at the Marine Theater, a comedy about the arrival of the plague in Lyme Regis; at some point I will poke around in the very good used bookstore here for more Nancy Mitford and of course I will buy fudge. It will be a good day, I know it.
