I was writing about Berlusconi in a private email (yes, I’m obsessed) and my Google spell-check didn’t recognise him. I clicked to see what alternatives I was offered and found, at the top of the list, wanderlust. So maybe it did recognise him after all. Maybe it’s offering sympathy and advice rather than alternatives.

And talking of spelling, does any other language mark the connection between language and magic as closely as English? Spell. The shared root of grammar and glamour. Witch and which (OK, I’m being silly now.)
