Exhausted to work. Walked so as not to overexert myself. Slept all the way on the tube. Spent most of the morning helping my boss to make a pointless list, the middle chunk was devoted to labelling shelves and the afternoon to updating the puzzle. Home to pizza and wine and a tinned treacle sponge cake which was boiled in terror for the requisite 35 minutes. Then a story about how the Baron once was sent to find the perfect accompaniment to treacle tart by my lady Charlotta crowned princess of Spain, Madrid and Portugal. After escaping the witch of Ulalu and meeting an enormous racoon, he found it in Ufalu in Western Switzerland.

Album of the day was Darkest of the Hillside Thickets - Spaceship Zero. A lot of fun. Bouncy rock concept album as an accompaniment to the RPG of the same name. I know I'm going to end up listening through their back catalogue, but I probably ought to read more Lovecraft first.

Darkest of the Hillside Thickets - Spaceship Zero

Play of the day was Jason Hall - GBS. Two brothers meet again when one returns from London to Toronto to see his father in the hospital. He has GBS. The brothers don't get on, and we see their relationship unfold. Mostly told as direct address monologues by the brothers. Well written, often surprisingly funny, satisfying.
