My favourite colour is purple so I was always going to love this sunset photo. I hope you’ve also seen lovely ones recently too.

“Chess isn’t always competitive. Chess can also be beautiful. It was the board I noticed first. It’s an entire world of just 64 squares. I feel safe in it. I can control it. I can dominate it. And it’s predictable, so if I get hurt, I only have myself to blame.”
Elizabeth Harmon (Anya Taylor-Joy) in the superlative drama series The Queen’s Gambit (2019), which tells of an orphan’s rise through the ranks of the male-dominated world of chess in the 1950s and 60s.
Line(s) of the Day #TheOffice
Darryl Philbin: In the warehouse, we’d use code names for people we wanted to talk about. Andy was “Jelly Roll”, Mike was “Dennis the Menace”, Ryan was “Douchebag.”
Ryan Howard: Hey, that’s not a code name, that’s just an insult.
Oscar Nunez: Plus, everyone would know who you meant.
Craig Robinson, BJ Novak and Oscar Martinez in The Office: An American Workplace (2005 – 2013), the hugely successful American adaptation of The Office (2001 – 2003), which ran for 14 episodes but was hugely influential.
