I'm on a boat

For the record, forensic research by the estimable Toby Manhire confirms that is was I who coined the word "Tupperwaka" to describe what might otherwise be called Sharples' Folly or even Pita's Posa. I am recording this contribution to the architectural discourse in the 'major achievements' section on my Doctoral Annual Report.

Meanwhile, the estimable Graham Beattie reprints a section of my essay on bookshops in the current edition of Metro, which you really should rush out and buy. Of course, had I known that this would be Metro's Sex Issue, I would have scandalised the book section by writing about the joy of sex in the library of the New Zealand Association of Rationalists and Humanists.

Since it is Friday, here is a special treat: the Fundy Post Spot the Architect Competition. Answers on a post card to the usual address.

I've been to that library but I never had sex there. What was it like?
