6:35 – Rise. I don’t really notice getting up.
7:00 – Sitting.
7:40 – Breakfast. Having missed the feet-on-the-floor moment, I endeavour to pay attention to the first mouthful of food. It takes a couple of seconds before I notice the taste (muesli, yoghurt and strawberries, FYI) – I get the coolness and texture on my tongue, but the taste itself is delayed. This is also true of the first mouthful of coffee. I’ve never noticed that before. Perhaps my tongue is asleep or slow.
Reading a small flame war on an internet forum. It’s very instructive. I have to remind myself that the fact that I’m finding other people’s idiosyncrasies fascinating is a sure sign that I possess those failings as strongly as they do, if not more so, and that it’s probably best not to demonstrate that to the world by joining in enthusiastically. This is a lot easier said than done.
8:30 – DoA, Guitar work.
10:00 – Begin work.
13:30 – Speak to Haru.
14:00 – Lunch, then phone up to organise someone to sign a photocopy of passport, as one does, then back to work, swapping Maisy corrections and GHMILY retouching.
A storm is building outside – it’s very close and humid, and the light is turning that yellow colour it does before a really enthusiastic summer storm.
18:00 – Complete work for the day. The storm breaks and the rain starts. It’s taken all day to get here from Glastonbury.
18:40 – Shower and then decide not to go out in the storm, which, now I come to write it down, is a bit weak of me, frankly. Considering I was only intending to sit on the floor for an hour.
20:00 – Eat dinner.
21:00 – Seinfeld DVD, popcorn, internet, etc.
23:03 – Begin writing this.
23:36 – Complete and post.
