And I thought it could get no stranger....weird prank call, someone with a gripe with the owner of this building at a guess, suggesting I was to be arrested by a couple of police officers at 7:30pm on drugs and violence charges. What kind of smart policemen announce such things to targets they have been "watching for ages"? The call became less and less convincing after a passably realistic start, and the guy became more and more rattled by my hard-learned local government stoicism. Unsurprisingly the promised PCs failed to visit. Otherwise, overslept for the first time ever today! Luckily a work colleague who was waiting to give me a lift rang me - I washed, shaved and dressed in a record 7 minutes. Never quite got it together at work however, despite attempts at some statistical analysis later in the day. The logic of current events continues to elude me, but at least its getting funnier....
I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.
I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
