Curiosities and ephemera 3

Back in June 2007 I posted On Malcolm and his books… where I mentioned a rare edition, or comparatively rare, of Bertrand Russell’s A History of Western Philosophy which I inherited from Lord Malcolm. What is striking about it is the dust jacket, which recycles a wartime map of part of Poland.

Here it is.

Yes, that is Lord Malcolm in his younger days…

25 June 2008 – Three New Judges Appointed to the Federal Court: Delenio just forwarded this via Facebook.

One of them is (my I feel old, but pleased) a member of the class of 1986! See also here.

Legal too, but unrelated…

Planning a banquet with Lord Malcolm

Lord Malcolm and I had a wonderful lunch at Chinese Whispers in Crown Street, Surry Hills. The duck dish was the best of its kind we have ever had. Towards the end, Lord Malcolm raised the idea of a banquet for his 49th in May, and we agreed this was the place to do it, so that is what will happen, God willing. Read the rest of this entry »

Master and commander at last

This is what has been exciting us here in South Sydney lately.

A RELENTLESS 12-week campaign by Peter Holmes a Court – and the dramatic last-word intervention of the actor Russell Crowe – swayed die-hard South Sydney supporters to accept a $3 million privatisation offer at an extraordinary general meeting yesterday.

The bid scraped across the line. With a 75 per cent majority required, the suitors won 75.8 per cent of the 3936 votes accepted – a margin of only 30 votes.

Strawberry Hills Pub

Lunch with Lord Malcolm and Sirdan was here yesterday: warmish beer 😦 but good value food. And Lord Malcolm saw lots of cute — um — and we saw the sexiest car we have ever seen:

Marigold Citymark, Sydney, Sydney Restaurant Review – Eatability

We were disappointed, but not as much as this patron:

Food 2 Ambience 2 Service 2 Value 3

I went to the Marigold with some work colleagues for yum char. They had lost our reservation so they put us on a table next to the toilet. They place smelt awful, I think they must have just painted it or have a large smelly dog. The food itself I think was probably that frozen stuff that you get from the freezer and put straight into the fryer or steamer – yuck! The waiters were rude too. Never ever going there again!!
