The other day, I knocked my portable hard disk (for home PC backups) off the top of the filing cabinet and it fell about five feet to the floor (crash). Amazingly, gravity didn't win - the disk still works and I was able to restore a file from it yesterday.

On Saturday, my car lit a warning light which I didn't recognise - I had to look it up in the manual. "Warning! Exhaust system fault. Your emissions may be affected - consult a dealer immediately." I ignored my emissions and carried on to Tesco's, cursing technology and fickle vehicles all the way. Today the light is not lit! Everything's fine! (I hope...)

Junk body text:

Ugly as a mud fence. Shall I compare thee to a summer's day.

Nice juxtaposition.

I've just bought a CD second-hand from someone in the office upstairs, and I'm irritated to find that the track I particularly wanted from it is missing. I guess it's a reissue that's been butchered edited from the original track listing. OK, I only spent £1, but still... If anyone's got a copy of Sky volume 2 that does have the Rameau "Gavotte & Variations" then please please can I have a copy?

Update: A very kind gentleman (who I won't embarrass by naming) has let me have a copy of the missing track. Thank you!

This office considers that orange and geranium flavoured chocolate is "too weird", "tastes of old people", or "what geranium?"

Our intrepid recorder teacher reports from the first lesson of term:

"We worked through the lesson plan, missing out all the bits which used recorders."

What is it they say? Things can only get better?
