16.10.2007 – Tuesday 16 October – Pancakes
- • I heard the rubbish truck drive past, but didn’t have the energy to jump up and rush the bins out. A few hours later, when it began to get too hot to lie there any longer, I got out of bed and dragged myself to the shower. Once showered, I made the mistake of trying to eat months-old ice cream with custard and cream. It wasn’t good, and ended up down the drain. Breakfast over, I drove to work, managed to find parking, got told by my manager that, despite being effective when other methods had failed, I should not threaten other departments with dire consequences for failing to rectify horribly annoying problems late at night. Agreeing that that was a good advice, I embarked upon my day’s work—making people happy, making computers happy, complaining lots, eating liquorice allsorts and jellybeans.
- • I realised I’d forgot to eat dinner, so had a pancake (with extra ice cream) from the Pancake Manor. It was fantabulous (which is, to my surprise, in the Oxford dictionary).
