In lovely London...

Off to London... hey ho.
Rough and tuff, hard and tuff, rougher than rough, tuffer than tuff...

The old man with parking obsession is not happy - someone is in his spot... He's examining every car in the street, been out there an hour..
Feel like I'm swimming through mud today. A wide river of mud. With muddy crocodiles. And rocks. Rocks covered in mud. And it smells a bit..

Nothing like a walk around a graveyard in the pissing rain to enthuse you for the afternoon's work.
People under my window discussing 'ow time flies' and 'aye, I remember im when ee were this big'. Considering shouting at them to move on...
Your brain has just finished installing important updates. Would you like to restart your life now?

Girl in front of me in the shop bought lucozade, condoms and chapstick. Good night in, that.
Falafel Verdict: 7/10. Needs better pitta and pickled chillis, but not bad!

The fabled falafel stall!

Staring at the splash of blood on the kitchen ceiling and sighing.
Is it the weekend yet? (Please lie if required)

I love it when Americans want to talk on the phone, or start doing business at 4pm our time... No! Get up earlier!
Spent lunchtime painting my windows. You'd think such a productive act would leave me with a satisfied glow.. But no, I just smell of paint.
Thursday is turning out to be depressingly busy...

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

When faced with an approaching, dull, working afternoon, look nonchalant until it gets close, then trip it up and kick it repeatedly...
Computer! Coffee, hot, with a dash of rum. And play some nice music. Heating up 2 degrees, and lower the lights. Yes, that's better. *sigh*

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

Grey day, damp, chilly, half asleep, computer buzzing, unread email waits, coffee already finished... Right: lights! kettle! itunes! action!

Was going to spend lunch hour painting the window frames. Old clothes - check, ladder - check, paint and brushes - check, rain - check...

Alingan Bajis recipe

Published a recipe for Alingan Bhajis

These cheese and potato bhajis are a popular snack in north-west India. They are very easy to make and hard to get wrong! Best served with chilli sauce, chutney, curd or yoghurt.

Despite not having a heavy weekend to recover from, I feel equally numb. So the question is - why take it easy if Monday is always as tough?

Going to the all day, all night jazz festival at the Gergson... bloody t9

Eating seaweed soup with steamed dumplings, then off to watch Mesrine at the Dukes.

Thinking of lunch. A little too much perhaps. Pasties, pies and pizzas spin in fractal paisley patterns when I close my eyes...
Found the Bourbons. Currently dunking them into my morning mocha. They last for 6 seconds before beginning to lose structural integrity.

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

I don't even like Crunchies, but have just eaten one - the only instant-food I could find in the house, after failing to locate the Bourbons
One project down, only a dozen to go... :(
A beautiful day here in Lancaster!

Disruptive day. The people on the roof distract me...

Amazing Lancaster sunset.
Bit rough today. Perhaps it was all the wine I drank last night and the late night?

People annoy me.
Cut a struggling hoverfly free from an old cobweb, spent 5 mins carefully untangling its legs & wings. It flew straight into Nimba the cat..

Walked face-first into big spider's web in the garden, then minutes later threw my coffee in the air when I felt something moving my in hair

The iTunes shuffle feature is not random. Either that or my computer just wants me to listen to the same bloody dozen songs forever.
I sued to do all my best, cleverest work in the mornings... Something seems to have changed...

At story slam, at storey. Prepared to be, well, I'm not sure what really.
The entire company, apart from us home workers, has gone on a picnic for the afternoon. So... I'm supposed to stay in and work?! o_O
Contemplating lunch... I'm thinking that a sausage and egg sandwich with brown sauce might do the trick?

Is about to go into a video meeting... Should probably put some clothes on.
Excellent curry lunch...

First day back at work finished, thank god, and at least some typing-related neurons are still intact.
Spent all bloody morning on the bloody phone. I hate talking on the phone. What a waste of time. The weather? THE WEATHER!? Rant, rant.
Happy to find 5 new Facebook friend requests waiting for me after Solfest :)
