Sleep is for the weak... or is that week?
Excellent night out last - even if I did break my promise and keep dozing off on the way back up the M40. Still, at least I wasn't driving.

People did keep asking me if I was enjoying myself - and rather than put this down to "looking like a goth" TM it was certainly because I was thinking.

I'm not a great ponderer in the tradition of the great philosophers (Aristotle, Plato, Waterhouse, Andrews) but it was clear to me last night how little I do at the moment. This manifested by, almost the moment I had some time for contemplation away from the buzz-buzz-bleep of the PC, I started being creative coming up with ideas (probably mediocre in the light of day of course) for costumes for LRP later this year.

"What a waste!" some of you might say. But I enjoyed it. Time away from the computer might be in order to try and work more on this, and other creative thinking projects.

In between this - I danced - or rather wiggled a bit out of time with the music. Shame the venue gets so crowded on the dance floor - but still it's not as dangerous as the "raised platform of death" at the Cellar in Oxford.

Enough rambling - I have been blessed this morning by my first valentines card in a fair few years, and a lovely little book on being superior. Now if only I could work out who it was from ;-)

Oh, and a job interview in Lancaster. This is very good - especially as I was starting to worry a little. When in my appraisal last week we were talking about credibility - and when asked what I needed to get on - I said "to be 10 years older" I was only half joking - and do wonder how much my age does in fact count against me in terms of "getting grown-up jobs". The only downside of the interview is that it's on a Wednesday. This is most inconvinient in terms of fitting a week in Oxford around it. Plus I'm not sure I have any leave left....

Hee. I almost have jealousy. While it may be a stupid, cheesy hallmark holiday that I wouldn't normally deign to acknowledge, I have never received a valentines card.

Re:

Without giving any secrets away it starts Much as I dislike the "Hallmark Holiday"... :-)

Still - books are the gift that keep on giving - they can be enjoyed at the time then bring back sad memories when after the relationship has exploded messily and they are discovered on the bookshelf.

Re:

What a wonderfully optimistic way of looking at things... ;-)

Good news about the Lancaster interview (apart from the Wednesday part).

Re: You're new at this game I see....

If I was in Oxford at work and developed an "interview-related malady" then I wouldn't be able to get to Lancaster in time :-)

Re: You're new at this game I see....

So develop one the day before. I like to catch embarassing ailments for these things, so the boss asks fewer questions.

Like "Going for my three-month scan"?

Usually you get as far as 'My gynecologist says..' and they stop asking questions. Or Urologists. They're good too!

Re: You're new at this game I see....

To avoid long and involved discussions about my domestics and when I travel to work I'll just stroke my beard and nod sagely.

Beard?! Ugh!

Hurrah! Interview! Makes you asking me to edit feel all the more worthwhile. :)

Of course, that works better with a black background. Bah.
