8:45 – Get up, sitting, breakfast.
Today is much more fragmented than previously, as I mostly need to respond to what clients are asking me to do, and they in turn are mostly dragging their feet getting back to me. A lot of emails to write in the morning and at lunchtime though. Haruko goes out at 13:20. Soon after I make and eat lunch.
I buy my mother’s birthday present from Amazon. Curious thing, they’ve gone out of their way – with One Click buying and so forth – to make the process easy, but when it comes down to it, I have to sign in several times, re-enter my debit card information twice and page through endless unwanted information and it’s no quicker than a less fancy site would be. It would be instructive to work out why this is, how it’s got to this point, where functionality is sacrificed for features.
Haruko comes back.
I get embroiled in an attempt to find a name for a website about angels. All the real words are taken, and I have to make some new words up.
With a bit of fiddling in the LilyPond => Illustrator process the music is set and sent winging to the designer, who will pick it up on Monday; and the font I’ve been working on is settled until I return from Argentina.
Haruko makes a big Japanese meal, then sitting the sofa, then guitar work and a toast to the AAD and the future, followed by a discussion of burning issues.
Very late now, and soon to bed.
