The other night I woke up screaming… well, whimpering, keening, with Evil Cramp From Hell in my left calve. Damn it hurt. After it tired of gnawing on my leg, it settled down into a low growl for the rest of the night. And way into the following day.
Such an odd juxtaposition of sensations as I sat on the northern end of Hype Park eating pineapple and rockmelon, warmed by the sun. If I had a job to go to, I wouldn’t be lying in the grass like this, all happy with fruit and wincing with residual cramp.
So it’s been a year since I partook of fulltime emplyment, and I’ve arrived at these conclusions:
1. Fulltime employment isn’t all it’s made out to be.
2. I’m a really lazy person.
Of course, I mean that in a good way.
Nonetheless [and bearing in mind a card I got last birthday which said "welcome to your late 20s"] time is running out, and soon one of them technology-savvy seventeen year olds who knows how to code Java will be on the speed dial of… someone who needs a boffin, and I’ll be… not. It doesn’t matter that even now I’m not a boffin, or on anyone’s speed dial – anyone who’ll pay me big money anyway, but dammit! it’s the sentiment that counts.
I haven’t isolated the sentiment yet either, but bear with me.
So over the next year I’m gonna draw lots more pictures. Drop by occasionally and see them. Also, I’ve just embarked on a Tuesday night foray into the world of website workshops, which means that I have to set the VCR for Heartbreak High and Party of Five. But maybe more importantly it means I’ll soon know how to use a HTML editor and won’t have to write this all on Simpletext.
One more step away from ludditedom.
It’s gonna be wonderful.
