Twas great sleeping in this morning. Usually when I'm working day shift it's up at 5am and go, go, go; start at 7 and work until 3, then bus home and get in about 5.45pm. But today was mine. I slept in until about 8.30am and then headed down to the local shopping centre (mall) for breakfast and some banking and then into town for genies and later to the library.
One interesting thing that happened walking from the library up to Oxford Street was walking through Hyde Park. Lots of weddings being photographed. The full bit, bridal party, wedding cars, bouquets etc. You have to detour all over the place so you don't get in their photographs.
Mr Forgetful lost his credit card again on Thursday, that's about 6 since November. It means I have to go into the bank with a statement and some ID etc, for a withdrawal, until I get another card, which usually takes about 5 working days. I think I left this one in an ATM, but the ATM was owned by a security/finance coy, not a bank, so its not just a case of going into the bank and saying, "please ma'am, the machine at my card". I was actually starting to think I was doing OK, as I've had the last one since February. At least I didn't lose the whole wallet and have to replace drivers licence, lose money etc.
Like Stuart, and half the known world, I got to see Mars on Thursday night. You could see it pretty plain in the Eastern sky, almost directly above us. Bright, but not too big, it did look a bit like a torch or flare. Doc Searls has an interesting piece about it here. It sounds like a great piece of software. I'll have to check it out.
Cocktail hour beckons, and then an early night because I'm back at the salt mine tomorrow. Hopefully it'll be pretty quiet. If it is quiet, I'll probably take some stuff in to type because I'm doing some research about the Western Front and WW1 in France and Belgium at the moment. That way I'm not on the web, won't get "bombed" and won't get blamed for looking at non work friendly sites.
