The day began well enough shortly before 4.00 am, the time I usually rise to beat the Grim Reaper to it – It being well known that a lot of people snuff it at 4.00 am) – and I enjoyed doing two podcasts later in the morning: One with Paul and Jack from All About Law and one with Geoffrey Woollard, a prospective parliamentary candidate. This latter podcast goes up tomorrow morning.
To illustrate the type of day I am having – the more vigilant will have noticed my use of a capital letter after a colon in the paragraph above. In fact you may use a capital or a small letter after a colon and, if you are feeling particularly pedantic, you may use one or two spaces after the colon. I have known this for some time… in fact, since I was ten, at a school in Scotland, where I spent a fair bit of my time in class wondering whether a board duster was going to come flying my way or not. I did actually manage to catch a board duster lobbed in my direction on one occasion and asked if the teacher would like it back. He did want it back. But there we are….
I went for a walk after my podcasts, to get some fresh air and buy essential supplies of wine, fags and some provisions. I bought myself a Marlon Brando Godfather mug. I really shouldn’t be allowed out…sometimes. Still.. it is a very fine mug for a cuppa.
The day is not over yet… I am getting cabin fever, having confined myself to barracks for two full weeks and my only social contact has been on Skype video…. so I am planning amusements for Saturday.
