An appalling week. Take a deep breath. Sending all good thoughts. Take it easy x

Thanks all..I've been preparing for this time for a bit, so it's not surprising really. He's never really been seriously ill either, which might be a bit testing.

Today, for the very first time, the check-out woman at the supermarket gave me a 10% reduction for seniors.

... and I'm still 7 years from retirement! :shock:

I feel old. :|

Taking the tram home from the office this evening, three lads got on at the same stop as me. They must have been 20 or 21, something like that, all dressed in trackie trousers, Nike trainers and t-shirts, that sort of thing. You know the type, swaggering young idiots, emanating in equal parts auras of marijuana and casual violence.

The tram was crowded, and standing near to them, I and everyone else in the vicinity heard them keep up a steady stream of the most vile anti-gay insults aimed at each other, interspersed with threats of stabbing and beatings. One charmer even said he was going to cut off his mate's skin and 'make it into a lampshade'.

I, and probably everyone else, was having the same conversation in our heads.


"Someone should say something."

"I should say something."

"I could say something".

"Yeah, I don't fancy getting stabbed though".

"Shit".



You know when your radar tells you it could all turn very nasty on a hair trigger? It wouldn't have taken much to set them off.

I'm not proud of it, but I got off at the next stop, and waited for another tram.

Bit unsettling: In the last two days I had two of my friends stating they had different forms of cancer. And now Jon K writes this on FB:

Ok, here goes
I have not been in the best of places lately and yesterday was really bad. In the end I went to the hospital where they checked me out for having a stroke. Thankfully I have not had a stroke and after over five hours of tests it was very thorough. So save for work stuff I will not be on here for a while. Please do not ring me or try to get in touch because quite honestly that causes more problems for me.
hopefully I will get throgh this but I need time away so please do what I have asked

Just two days ago I came across a CD that Jon had written the liner notes for, and I wondered how he was doing (the last I heard was a few years ago, and it was a message not dissimilar to that one). Fingers crossed.

Hes been battling through all sorts of medical and personal issues which he is kind of vague about when posting it on Facebook- he's been cheerful every single time I meet him on Cruise To the Edge so it is kind of up and down but this one seems pretty serious- this morning my FB opened with Jon stating :"THank you for all the kind comments and wishes I appreciate them bery (sic) much but really what you have to understand is that there really is nothing left. I am empty and there is no more. Thank you all the same."

My new meds have a side affect of making me feel hungry, I will put on some weight I've been warned. :evil:

I have SIXTEEN employees and I never see more than eight or nine of them at a time.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

It looks like I'm going to be working/doing work stuff pretty much non stop until the middle of October. Late nights, weekends, whatever. With exceptions for things already on the calendar. It's been like this for a week or three now, it seems. This is the life I have chosen, and about 2/3 of it is my own doing ... but I've gotta bitch somewhere.
