It's cold today!

Cold by the standards of this winter, at least, which is still quite warm, so I can't complain. I could still cycle to Nottingham and back without much discomfort.

This is, according to Blogger, my 1964th post, so maybe when I get to 1976 I'll post a blog reviewing each year of my life up to the present - that'd be cool. But then maybe something will happen on the day of post 1997 that I have to blog about and whatever I did that year will go unchronicled forever.

What did I do that year? Oh, yeah, the first MSO! That was an awesome year!

I can't talk about curtain hooks

My curtains don't have hooks. They've got ring things that slide along the rail. Curtain hooks are rubbish, anyway, they always fall off.

Look, I'd talk about memory if there was anything to talk about, but nobody's told me anything's happening - there's probably a US Championship in a couple of months that I'd love to go to but almost certainly can't afford.

I could talk about Captain Hook, he was extremely cool. Or no, I can't really be bothered.

I didn't know you cared!

I wasn't expecting to get quite so many replies immediately after posting last night - with my only updating this thing once a week at best, I assumed people weren't checking it so regularly. Anyway, the feeling seems to be that I should talk about memory, but there's not much to talk about at the moment - we're in the usual winter quiet period between competitions, and as usual (as far as I know) there's no definite plans about what's going to happen this year. I'm still intending to run a "Cambridge" competition at some point, probably not in Cambridge again, but I can't really announce anything about it yet. As for whether I'll compete anywhere, that's another question - we'll have to see how I'm feeling.

I do have an interesting offer for a Spanish advertising campaign which I'm in danger of losing through sheer apathy and I should make an effort to do, since they're paying well over the odds, but I'll let you know more about that when the time's right.

I'm starting a new temp job tomorrow, Friday 13th (it's an Unlucky Year again) in Derby (most haunted city in England), which I'm confident will go well. I'll take my lucky ladder's foot with me. I'm determined to devote any time I spend working as an accountant from now on to actively pursuing some other career, whatever it is. That, I think, will help me psychologically, or at least keep me off the streets for a while. Although my brother's staying with me at the moment, so spare time is more at a premium, although he does cook dinner for me every night, so I really can't complain.

I also have a book to co-write with Alberto some time when I get a moment - I'm sure it'll be a roaring success.

What do you want from me?

What brought you to this blog? Judging by the stats page, most people who come here from random searches are looking for Krypton Force, Coco Pops lyrics, old coins or how to give oneself food poisoning, but what about my regular readers? Do you want my insight into memory matters? Othello? Comics? Cartoons? Life in general? Let me know, and I'll blog about it.
