In conversation with John, I unveiled the new and improved Action!Michelle, proudly brandishing this week’s lindy-hopping and yesterday’s swim as evidence of her diminishing slackerdom. So what have you been up to then, I asked. Oh, was in London last weekend for the anti-war protest and am surfing in Devon this weekend, Thunder-Stealing!John said blithely. Arse. I must now go and do something like spelunking in the sewers of Hackney or rappelling off the erotic gherkin to maintain Action!Michelle’s market share.
