Playday

I have again washed a week's worth of dishes and cleaned up the kitchen; I have showered, shaved, shampooed and cut my hair (not in that order, obviously); I have answered the bulk of the recent e-mail deluge, though I haven't yet had the heart to glance through the roughly 780 spams awaiting deletion.

And now, I'm free. I will arise and go now, and go downtown, and I will do such things—what they are, yet I know not: but they shall be the delights of the earth.

Hello Udgewink, do you cut your hair yourself? I imagine that it is one of those very short cuts that have become popular recently.
A coincidence: while I usually work on Fridays, like you I am at home today. I went shopping before cleaning the kitchen.

Wishing you many delights this weekend, Udge - you deserve it!

I smiled at your 'not in that order, obviously' - the sign of a true writer: alliteration comes before literal accuracy!

Well done, Alan. I believe that this is the first time in 2.5 years that anyone's picked up one of my literary Easter eggs.

May: I do cut my own hair and have been meaning to write about this for some time. I use a "buzzcutter" device with two settings: 6mm for winter and 4mm for summer.

Zhoen: thanks, I intend to vastly enjoy my weekend off. I seriously considered packing my laptop in a bag and just disappearing for a few days, but can't afford it. Competition work is like the lottery, either you win big or it costs you a fortune in unpaid work and printing costs etc.

Jean: thank you.

Oh, very cute, biblical wording here, this post's style appeased my book hunger for a while. :) You write pretty.
