Your astrological week ahead, with Psychic Bob

Libra (23 SEP-23 OCT)
Never go to sleep with an argument unresolved. Resort to arm-wrestling if necessary, although she does have the weight advantage.

Scorpio (24 OCT-21 NOV)
On Saturday, you will mention you’re doing something mundane then highlight its mundanity with a contrasting sarcastic statement. Rock & roll!

Sagittarius (22 NOV-21 DEC)
Your boyfriend reveals he has a foot fetish, but at a push he would like you to dress as any ex-leader of the Labour Party.

Capricorn (22 DEC-19 JAN)
On an evening out, you suspect the Latour ’70 is corked. And by ‘corked’ I mean ‘flat’. And by ‘Latour ’70’ I mean ‘half-empty bottle of White Lightning you found in a bin’.

Aquarius (20 JAN-19 FEB)
Your romance has a fairytale ending this week as your boyfriend locks you in your own oven and murders your grandmother.

Pisces (20 FEB-20 MAR)
You will spend an engaging 45 minutes on Thursday listening to Velvet Underground’s ‘Heroin’ then imagining what Lou Reed would actually look like in ‘a sailor’s suit and cap’.

Aries (21 MAR-19 APR)
Haters gonna hate. Potatoes gonna potate. Christian Slater’s gonna Christian Slate. And so on.

Taurus (20 APRIL – 20 MAY)
You shouldn’t still be using the word ‘boobies’ aged 30. Not for the finals of your medical degree, certainly.

Gemini (21 MAY-20 JUN)
Your final bid of £200 for a rare Italian Star Wars poster sees you win the ebay auction, as well as bringing a whole new definition to the word ‘win’.

Cancer (21 JUN-22 JUL)
Your insecurity and alcoholism may well be attributable to your mum not showing you much love as a child, but in her defence you are pretty unloveable.

Leo (23 JUL-22 AUG)
Might as well face it, you’re addicted to love. And crack.

Virgo (23 AUG-22 SEP)
A Stitch In Time Saves Nine, But Dozens More Feared Dead In Sewing Machine Factory Blaze.

Clever people recommend book

A BOOK has been declared officially worthwhile by clever people.

Less clever people are now scurrying to buy the 832-page tome in the hope of becoming more like the clever people, or at least looking cleverer while they are reading or pretending to read it.

Project manager Emma Bradford said: “I am very exciting about feeling obliged to read the book, whatever it is. I like clever things.

“I love that books make you think, but I hate thinking about which book to read.

“Somehow my instincts always lead me to novels about Cotswolds housewives having affairs with hunky vets, which I know are wrong.”

A spokesman for the Booker panel said: “It’s not about being clever, it’s about quality. Although that’s not to deny we’re clever, because clearly we are. Very.”
