Still among the living

Just a quick post to say that I'm still around. Work is crazy (it's that time of the year), so I'm checking my flist maybe once a week or so, which is the reason some of you are getting very belated comments to your posts. Other than that, my life is work or thinking about/planning for work, with the occasional film thrown in on a weekend for diversion, and book-reading limited to the three-hour daily commute on the bus. Newspapers are scanned at the end of the day when I get home (although the Weekend edition of the Financial Times and their occasional "How to Spend It" magazines are set aside and savoured), and the weekly and monthly periodicals are very much a hit-or-miss affair (they tend to just pile up in the corners, unread). The television goes days without being turned on, and some CDs I bought at Blackwell's during my November visit to Oxford are still in their shrink wrap packaging. (Of course, that's not as bad as the two Netflix DVDs which have been sitting on my desk, unopened and unwatched, since last October.) So, trust me, you aren't missing out on much.

Lights out now. It's past 12:30 a.m., and I'll be heading off to work in exactly six hours. Ciao!
