Ox marks the spot

My Reasons To Be Cheerful Part II series may have ground to a halt - perhaps a good thing given the curse it seems to bestow on its featured subjects - but the Guardian offered its own version earlier in the year, with a little help from a handful of well-known locals. I'll endorse the view of Stornaway's Brian Briggs about Cowley Road ("about as alternative as Oxford gets") and admit shamefully to having not yet visited the Ashmolean. I've heard good things about the Turl Street Kitchen, too, so hope to try it at some point - not least because it was formerly the QI Building, the first in my series.

(Thanks to David for the link.)
