Went to the Irish folk night at the Fiddler's Elbow again, which had a star turn from one of the older gents who did some singing. The pub's pie and mash is also excellent.
We had the first event of Transform Brighton & Hove's summer programme; a debate about socialists staying in the Labour party which was chaired (very well) by CM; it was fun, and the pub afterwards was lovely—and they also had an Irish folk night, organised by our friend's mum.
CM's mum came to visit over the weekend, and we made her truffled almond alfredo for dinner on Friday, which I would recommend very strongly. Much like my favourite pumpkin risotto, it has a real richness of flavour (furnished chiefly by the truffle oil) which makes it feel... fancy? I'm not sure: either way, it's great.
Finished watching The Book Of Boba Fett, a very... odd show. I'm not sure how much I have to say about it, except that I think the replacement ship one of the main characters secured seems desperately impractical given their stated profession. Like driving a sports car if you've got three kids: you probably just want the people carrier. Also I need to rewatch Justified.
The Seagull continues to do well—we have very nearly 10x the number of subscribers we had a month ago, which is very exciting, and we're going to start publishing longer pieces very soon too.
We went along to the demonstration at The Level mentioned in this week's edition; I had to leave a bit early because I wasn't feeling great, but it was good to see so many people showing out.
