The Incredible Languidness of Being

Ah, peace. Ah, quiet. Ah, the dog days of summer. The Olympic hordes have left, so those of you in London can find parking places and seats in the pub again. Lots of h2g2ers are on holiday still, while others are kicking back, taking it easy on sofa or balcony, and catching up on their reading. Create is grateful if you share some of your finds with them. They're also hoping some of the holidaymakers have spotted Elton on their travels. If you happened to catch him on the hamstercam, send your pics to [email protected]

Once you're done with that Agatha Christie mystery, you can read the items below. Just so your brains don't completely rust in the heat and humidity of late summer, there's a quiz to sharpen your wits. Can you identify these famous writers from their dust jacket photos? (Okay, some of them are paintings, blame technology.)

Not everybody is staying home. Awix has made it as far as the cinema, while NASA's all the way over on Mars, tweeting away at us. Phoenician Trader's found another church you'll enjoy, and Willem's found another surprising bird. Water sports continue, with tips for staying in your kayak, and the results of the virtual water hijinks on this site.

Come one, come all, slowly, you don't want to overheat. Get a cool drink, adjust your straw hat, kick back and enjoy!
