2020 lack of vision

no time to go to the movies

Or go shopping for Tank Girl Boots, or watch Black Books, or finish my Annual Report.timekeeper On the way to the busstop I noticed my watch had lost three minutes again and wrote up the rest of what I was thinking on the bus, in the tiny sketchpad. I'd work it up into some proper artwork but I just don't have the time. Some of the time I didn't have I spent watching Shaun of the Dead, and after that we went to a pub, because we had to. We tried to go to The Grapes, because that seemed pretty defensible, but there wasn't any space (full of zombies already) and it smelt really nasty, so we wound up at the usual. It was great, of course (the movie, not the pub) but you knew that. And we got a decent selection of music played beforehand and the extra long Van Helsing trailer. Growl!

Work didn't go so well, report writing just making me feel sort of matt-black-flat-pack (be depressed, be desired), but on the bright side while trying to look up a good link for green growing things I found that someone has invented concrete you can plant trees on.

2020 lack of vision


Rather unexpectedly, I just ran into Jez (that's him there, panel 2 (top right), first from the left -- his hair's shorter now!) in the street. (Here for an ACCU conference, see his blog for details.) He says that Oxford is a nice place to visit but he wouldn't want to live here ... and that my journal gives the impression that I'm constantly on the edge of a precipice, about to go over the edge.

So, here's a question: how can I make myself appear more sane?
