  1. abv
    • 2009 September 5, Victoria Moore, “French wine: there's plenty of life in the old dog yet”, Guardian:
      This tells me that wine lovers are still entranced by French wine, so here are three to be getting on with: Cuvée Fleur Rosé 2008 Vin de Pays de L'Herault (£3.89, Waitrose ; 12% abv) is a rustic rosé with bite, freshness and character, more charming than many a more expensive bottle, and one I'd swig from a Duralex tumbler.

    • 2009 September 5, Simon Hoggart, “Simon Hoggart's week: Whatever happened to snollygosters?”, Guardian:
      It's by Adam Jacot de Boinod, and it's about the words in the English language we didn't know about and shouldn't have lost – such as "applesquire", the male servant of a prostitute, "mush-faker", one who repairs umbrellas, and "stadge", the date of issue stamped on a coin.

  9. chucklesome
    • 2009 September 5, Charlie Brooker, “Charlie Brooker's screen burn”, Guardian:

      So far, so conservatoire, but what sets Limelight apart from a bangin' night down at Wigmore Hall is that the artists will be taking a leaf out of the big book of rock'n'roll, bantering with the crowd, chatting about their choice of music and stagediving at the end of the every tune.
