Hello. I am Rachel. Bagelmouse is an internet handle I’ve had since around 1998. It’s ridiculous, isn’t it?

When I started this blog I lived in a nice little studio flat in Muswell Hill. Hence the name. Since then I moved across town to my own place, but “One Bed Living” just doesn’t have the same ring to it…

Expect verbal diarrhoea, a lack of coherent structure and cats and you won’t go far wrong.

If you feel the urge you can email me: rachel [at] londonist dot com. Or you can read Londonist.com, where I subject people to the outpourings of my brain, far more frequently than here these days. If you get exceptionally bored you can look at photos on Flickr or you can take a look at the Lewisham Literary Festival, which I decided to organise on a day when I was feeling rather ambitious. Or stupid. You decide.
