George Orwell’s Eggs

eggsExactly 70 years ago last week, George Orwell was very, very concerned about how many eggs his hens were laying (scroll down to see the entries from last week).  And for good reason.  That’s less then an omelet a day.

Seriously, though, if anyone out there is planning on becoming famous, future generations will find you much more interesting if you keep your egg diary separate from your regular diary.

I do think the concept behind the Orwell Diaries- publishing George Orwell’s diaries on the internet 70 years to the day after he wrote them- is great, and I’ll keep checking in periodically.  I’m just looking forward to the day when George comes to terms with the fact that his chickens are lazy.
