Wake up at 6:30 and lie awake until 9:00. Initially decide not to go to the supermarket, then realise that as I’m awake anyway…
So I go to the supermarket. I notice that they put all the things that people might be embarrassed about buying together in the same place: condoms, hemorrhoid cream, pregnancy testing kits, laxatives, foot powder and so forth.
While I’m contemplating that (and tweating it, as well, if I have to be honest), I’m approached by a woman asking for advice – thankfully only anti-histamines. Are these the tablets you need when you have an allergy? Yes, I tell her, and point out that it says cetirizine hydrochloride on the packet and that that’s the active ingredient. She then begins to tell me the reason she needs the anti-histamine, which I don’t really need to know. I’m not her doctor. I’m not a doctor. I don’t pretend to be a doctor. I don’t even watch Casualty.
Then we have breakfast, then I get back to Snow White. When I get to the fifth spread, I find that I have the markup and the artwork for different spreads. Um. So I do some corrections on the Orchard job instead, which takes me until 18:30. Then I try recording another lead guitar for Nothing But Green Grass. More successful than last time, but still not 100%. Oh, well, I’ll give it another shot when I get back from Spain.
Also record chords for Everybody Wants to Rock and Roll, and play the melody on guitar. It’s quite nice, but I really need to do the lyrics for it.
Watch Being Human, then do some extra-fine tweakery on Logodaedalus and send some emails.
So some things I can cross off my to do list, there.
