The gooseberry.

Not only is the gooseberry bush covered in wicked evil spikes, but every individual gooseberry then needs to be ‘topped and tailed’ — have its end bits snipped off before freezing. To add insult to injury, I don’t even like fruit.

Okay. Well. Uncle B’s gooseberry crumble is rather nice on a cold Winter afternoon, but that’s a long way off.

One of the gooseberry bushes died this year (I didn’t pee on it, I swear! Remember the wicked evil spikes?), so it was only three pounds. I think it was eight last year. So there’s that, I guess.

Also, there’s a lunar eclipse tonight, but it’s all clouded over.

Today has been a day of off-pissery. You?
