Woke early. Went bugger this. Snooze. Woke late. Spent the day finishing lent puzzle, tidying room, sorting dinner. Then dinner. Then Alcohol and End of lent. lamb dinner and bizarre instruments and being drunk. Woohoo. Rassofor and princomb-prancomb.

AOTD Villa Lobos, de los Angeles - Bachianas Brasileiras Nos. 1,2,5,9. Started very well, but then drifted.

Finished the night wioth a variety of songs about mens genitalia and then women's. then general comedy.

Drunk!

Now it's not Lent, you're right, there should be gin. Actually, given your icon, perhaps Pimm's, since it's just gin that's had an affair with some fruit. I went to Tunbridge Wells and bought a lovely sky blue waistcoat. In the unikely event of your being free for the Boat Race you could come and mock me for it while imbibing the above.

Pshaw, my dear? I am afraid I must direct you to the last line of the above post.

What the hell does prinkum-prankum mean anyway?

Tis "a fine dance" for witches, to judge by Google, which seems somewhat sturdier than my OED memory...

Finds SOED volume II, reads definition.

Well it depends when you say it. If you say it in the 16th century, it means a prank or trick. If you say it in the 17th century it is a cushion-dance (gets volume I) which is a ring dance formally danced at weddings in which women and men alternately knelt on a cushion to be kissed. However, if you said it in the 18th century it would be fine clothing, or an adornment (as in "What a wonderful jacket with it's brocade and frogging and all that prinkum-prankum").
