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....
