Listen in, listen Ian!
"Two million e-mails are sent every second in the UK."|
No they aren't. That would be 120 million every minute, which would mean on average every man, woman and child in the country is sending an email every thirty seconds. I'm not saying we don't all get overwhelmed by a load of useless cr@p email, but that's a nonsense statistic.
Anyway, what's been happening this week? Well, the main downer is that as I briefly mentioned previously, I seem to have a wisdom tooth making a nuisance of itself in my upper right jaw. There's a slight dull ache there pretty much constantly, and opening my mouth is painful, which makes eating and talking less pleasurable than they should be. I'm going to have to register with a dentist I guess, which is a good thing in itself as I haven't been since I left Nottingham about 5 years ago. This one is my nearest one that's open on Saturdays and accepting new NHS patients so I'm going to go and see them tomorrow. According to that page though, this is their website which does seem a little unlikely.
The week hasn't been all jaw pain though. On Tuesday night I went to see Billy Bragg, who was great as ever. I particularly enjoyed the encore, which was basically the whole of Life's a Riot. More encores that are a whole album please! Also, last night I went for South Indian food at Diwani's on Drummond Street, which was great - an Aloo Paneer dosa the size of a very big thing, and top quality samosas. And it was really cheap too - go and have vegetarian Indian food on Drummond Street everyone!
I've been really tired recently too. Until about two or three weeks ago, I would usually stay up at night until one o'clock at least, and two o'clock wasn't that unusual. I'd be a bit tired in the morning, but nothing I couldn't handle. Now though, I'm exhausted every night at about midnight and I'm pretty much always asleep by one. The only thing I can think of that may have caused this is that earlier this year, I wasn't exactly told off for my timekeeping, but it was suggested that it would be appreciated if I was in the office a few minutes before nine every morning. To manage that, I set my alarm to go off fifteen minutes earlier and I now go out at five past eight instead of twenty past. Could that fifteen minutes have built up to change my body clock over a few weeks, or am I just getting old?
