My name is Cathy, I’mΒ on a come-down from a literature degree and I’m still working out how to blog.

One of my very few themes is me catching on to things and ideas minimumΒ ten years after they were cool, hence the name of this blog. And, due to a tendency to faff around a lot, I am late to a lot of actual parties.

I can footnote properly, but I’m sure as hell not going to do it here. (But really, if I’m mentioning a book or an article, place or film that you might not know about I’ll try to drop a link in so it’s not completely unclear what I’m talking about.)
