So I downloaded Cabin Pressure from Audible because Benedict Cumberbatch plays the pilot, Martin Crieff, and since Ben's voice is like melted chocolate, I thought it might soothe me to sleep. But YSK: It is REALLY hard to sleep when you're laughing so hard you can't breathe. I listened to all three available seasons last week and then just started right over from the beginning! I've also taken to stalking the BBC Radio 4 website at odd hours of the day/night to catch up with series 4 as it airs.
And as Arthur Shappey would say, "It's brilliant!"
"Oh, dear. Surely we had two wings when we started?"
MARTIN: Good afternoon. This is your captain speaking. Just to say there is absolutely nothing to worry about.
MARTIN: Hello. Captain Crieff here again. Still no need to panic. I repeat, there is no need to panic. Or to look out of the windows. Everything's fine.
MARTIN: Actually, I wasn't being entirely straight with you just now. You see, it's this damnable sleeping sickness of mine. [Yawns.] Normally, I control it with a mysterious stimulant from South America but blast it, my supply's run out. I'm afraid our only hope now is if by some chance someone on board knows how to prepare this stimulant and could—
CAROLYN: Yes, we get the message. Arthur, take Martin his coffee.
I laughed so hard that I forgot how to breathe. Then I died. I am currently listening to CP from the beyond. "What fresh hell is this?"
If you don't mind me saying so, that question is entirely against the spirit of surprising rice!
I've been trying to read this book for so long that I'm actually embarrassed to admit when I started it. Since starting a new job, I've had almost no time for reading. I love that I can listen to the book while I get read for work in the mornings or when I'm driving.
In this book? Jaime or Brienne
Name pronunciation, i.e. Bry-een for Brienne (Bree-uhn)? Really?
Winter is coming.
I will probably download book five, too.
