Good form

I was thinking this weekend that the saying / phrase, ‘X was on good form last night’ is one of my favouite expressions. To say that someone was being themselves to the best of their ability is such a great form of speech, a reminder of why you're friends with some. Themselves³ if you will.

Incidentally my parents met Gavin Esler this weekend, who I met about a year ago, after interviewing his girlfriend Anna Phoebe. According to mother he remembered me and said I was a good journalist. Praise indeed. When I met him at one of her concerts, I also told him that Newsnight has the most rocking news theme of any on the tele. Which it does. Only Question Time comes close with that frantically fast piano-led piece.
