12.10.2007 – Friday 12 October – Working, not Washing
- The Heat of the Day
- • I slept in as long as I could, finally woken by it being too hot to stay in bed any longer, to find that the washing machine doesn’t wash anymore, having been fried by the recent lighting. I left for work about the same time as the washing machine man arrived, to tell us that he hasn’t got any power boards in stock for the washing machine so it’ll be Monday before it’s fixed. Work was its usual self, though nicely air-conditioned—almost on the too-cold side. I remembered to take my leftover curry this time, and it made a very nice lunch—good enough that I didn’t need dinner, though I did eat quite a few jellybeans and liquorice allsorts.
- The Cool of the Night
- • I didn’t go to bed, nor did I sleep. Instead I stayed up, prowling, wasting lots of time building the new public section of my site.
