Sartorial elegance

I found my old leather waistcoat recently, and I think I'm going to have to start wearing it again. It always looked cool, and since I seem unlikely to find a new hat before the world championships, and the cloak is too big and bulky to cart to Bahrain with me, I need some item of stupid-looking clothing to make me stand out from the crowd.

I'm also being forced to the conclusion that I'm going to have to take my big rucksack to Bahrain. I hate travelling with a big bag, but I've got a lot of cards and clothes and things to ship over there, and there really is the possibility of me having to take a trophy home with me (although I hate to leave space for that, because it jinxes the whole thing), and there's no way I can manage it with my little bag. Drat.

For the record, if anyone cares...I'm openly melancholy.

As you said, Gregory, this is MY blog, and that means I write what I feel like writing, not what you want me to write. And if you've been reading this blog, I can't imagine where you got the impression that I'd want to enter into a discussion with someone who thinks 'he is openly gay' is a reason to criticise someone. Or that although I deleted your first post, I wouldn't have a problem with you saying the exact same things again in another series of comments.

Sorry to delete Mike's and Boris's posts too, but this whole thing annoys me and I wanted it got rid of - there's a time and a place for laughing at Daniel Tammet's claims to be an 'autistic savant', and that's in the pub, after a memory championship, in a friendly and good-natured kind of way. No, I'm not 'infuriated' by him - he likes publicity, I don't, he's not harming me or anyone else by getting it. Now stop posting comments here, Gregory. If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

Just a week to go - yihaaa! :)

A week? Yikes! I haven't done nearly enough training!
