It's a cool 23oC here in the test department, where I have decided to relocate myself for a while. Primarily because it gives me time to think and stuff, and also because I want to keep an eye on what these stupid moisture monitors think they're doing - the whole situation is most vexing...

So I finally got into work, despite the bus deciding not to show up. Having said that, it might have - it was just either more than five minutes early, or more than fifteen minutes late. I tend to get to the bus stop five minutes before the bus is meant to, and twenty minutes is all the waiting I'm prepared to do for it. The day off work hasn't helped, with regards to the experiments I'm running. In fact, now I'm getting completely different results on every instrument I'm testing. Hardly conclusive...

So right now, I'm in my little corner, with Notepad open, writing junk as usual. It's lucky this machine isn't online, otherwise I'd be sat on it all the damned time and never get anything done. Which would be.. unfortunate.. Actually, despite the fact that I fully intend to spend the next little while typing a journal entry, I'm not feeling too bad about work. My day off has done me good, and it kinda feels like today is Monday (in that I've just had a weekend), only I know the weekend is just two days away. Yay :o)

Everybody at work seems to be under the impression that I was absent yesterday due to having a hangover or something. I'd correct them, but I don't really care that much - they're not bothered either way, and correcting them either means lying, or telling them a truth they wouldn't want to know. Easier to just be content to leave things as they are, I think... And like I said - they're not bothered, it's not like they've never taken days off work for hangovers or whatever anyway...

Today is the first of August. This is relevant, because it means that it is no longer July, which in turn is relevant because it means that I can look back on the last month and actually think about it. A lot has happened... I'm tempted to add "yet again" to that. July 2000 I went up to Manchester, met David for the first time, and had my brief thing with Jo. July 2001, I went to America. And now this.... I have to say, July is quickly becoming my favourite month of the year, although naturally, we'll have to see how August turns out... :o)

So yeah, an interesting month. To think that one month ago today, I'd never spoken to Rachel, barely even had any interaction with her at all (I think I may have posted a comment in reply to something she said on David's journal once)... I think I've proved to myself yet again that life can do some funny things at times, and there are always surprises - it's rather a comforting thought, really. The idea that the world isn't out to persecute me, and that nice things can happen when they're not expected - it's a good thing...

It's funny how many of my thoughts tend to revolve around my journal, really - I can remember when it was just another way of whoring myself out to the general population, but now it's something different. When I was stood at the bus stop this morning, I was planning out what I'd write. I even planned talking about how I play what I write, and you don't get much more self-referential than that. It's very much an outlet, and one that (surprisingly) keeps me sane. The biggest gap in this thing is only a couple of weeks long, and during that time I was still writing, just not on LJ... I've been keeping this thing for more than two years now, and I still find nonsense to write about - I'm impressed with myself, if nothing else...

Now, more work.....
