Favourite Lines I Wrote Today:
Lloyd flicked the side of the pot and it made a dull noise like a church bell being struck. ‘This was my pappy’s back in the war. He carried this big sucker to France and back. Made coffee every morning rain or shine or if he was being bombed or if he was waking up next to a lonely French girl.’
Lines I Wish I Had Written:
Bond insisted ordering Leiter’s Haig-and-Haig ”on the rocks” and then he looked carefully at the barman. ”A Dry Martini”, he said. “One. In a deep champagne goblet.” ”Oui, monsieur.” “Just a moment. Three measures of Gordons, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemonpeel. Got it?” ”Certainly, monsieur.” The barman seemed pleased with the idea.
