7:48 – I wake up and look at my alarm clock. Late again. This is annoying. Again also, I had a dream that flavours the colour of the rest of my day.
8:00 – Sitting.
8:35 – Breakfast.
9:30 – Guitar work.
I render a number of sound files to AIFF files and burn them on to CDs. I check the CDs for sound. There’s sometimes an uncomfortable split between the part of my that wants to listen to the content of the files and another part that needs to listen to the sound quality.
11:00 – I take the recyclables to the recycling bins. Except the shredded paper, which has been refiled.
12:30 – I begin cooking a huge fry-up for us – bacon, mushroom and tomato with scrambled egg and toast. I learn that I shouldn’t scramble eggs with a whisk or they attain a non-standard constituency.
12:50 – Just as the frying gets to it’s most exciting point I get a delivery, which is even more exciting.
13:00 – Lunch. I suppose if I can cook anything it’s an authentic English all-day breakfast. Nice, too. Followed by tea and biscuits.
14:00 – Begin preparing my PowerBook to receive OS X Tiger.
15:00 – Get a call from someone about a job-ette. In conversation it appears that due to mergers this designer and the last designer I worked for are in the same department. It’s quite difficult keeping track of all this.
16:00 – Tea. No biscuits.
18:00 – Begin installation. Occasional scary moments, as there always are.
19:10 – Dinner – delicious light vegetable stew with bread and home-made humous.
When Dinner is over the install is done and the computer is sitting there with a blank blue screen. I suddenly become very impatient for it to finish and keep looking at it. I’m putting away my washed underwear as a distraction.
Eventually it’s done and I explore Tiger, and get back to doing stuff.
AAD site work, and a DGM query.
23:06 – Complete this and post.
