[enemies] there are some best not tackled

This ain't me ... yet. Still have to get home though.

Interesting day.

I'd just finished insulting [in the final chapters] the one entity in the world it's not advisable to insult and was making ready to have a bath when there was a knock on the door. They were turning all the water off for one hour.

Not to worry.

Went back to the desktop, Word had decided to close down and I lost half a chapter. plus suporting documentation.

I went into the kitchen to have a french toast when my reading glasses I'd forgotten to take off dropped, I tried to trap them with the leg as they fell, broke the frame and then went searching for the little screw which could put them back together. I got it all back in place and because of the coiled spring affect ... ping ... the little screw went flying.

French toast was all over the floor meantime and the brunch in the pan was burning.

You may or may not know that I bicycle to many places. The gears decided not to work today; the wind stopped me after a couple of hundred metres and I had to walk against it.

Doesn't pay to take on the metaphysical world. If I'm still around and haven't been skewered by my kitchen knife or whatever, I'll get back to you on this with an update.

Some days it doesn't pay to get out of bed.

That sounds like my Monday! and you already know some of the things that happened then. But what you don't know is as soon as I got into work I had to go straight back home to sort out one or two silly things!

You're being paranoid, I bet you could have written about yetis and the same would have happened. Only you wouldn't have made the same inference.

Word eating a document is quite common. Happened to my wife's essay on the '68 French student movement only recently.


Sorry,but I did laugh a bit about the glasses.
If anyone needs a wife, James ,it's you. :)

James Higham said...

Thanks Sally and Liz.

NNW - I can try.

Bob - yes.

Cherie - it does happen.

Wolfie - I'd not have expected any less from you. :)

Uber - then let's grab the bull by the tail and look it in ...

While out for my few miles en velo today I wondered who'd stolen my personal headwind.

Word: sucks.
