Week 98: Dark Void
We started the week with a new prime minister. Hooray. It’s interesting to work for a newspaper when this stuff happens because we get a lot more traffic and we’re all slightly more on-edge in case the website falls over.
Later in the week, the queen died. It’s interesting to work for a newspaper when this stuff happens because we get a lot more traffic and we’re all slightly more on-edge in case the website falls over.
I don’t feel particularly impacted by the news. It’ll be slightly odd, because she’s been a feature of British society for so long, but also abolish the monarchy.
The flat above ours started leaking water through the kitchen and bathroom ceilings 😬 on the plus side I met my upstairs neighbour finally.
Mara was in town and hosted some birthday drinks near our flat, so we went along and drank a bit much for a weekday.
I’ve been playing with starryai, it’s weirdly addictive to generate images when a prompt comes up in conversation. Here’s “a girl named Charlotte but instead of a brain there’s a dark void”.
We’re away on holiday in Wales for a week now. We rented a ridiculously huge farmhouse with a bunch of friends.
We have two hot tubs, and I’m going to go and sit in one with a beer immediately after publishing this weeknote.
Waterbeds are weird and sloshy.
We’re doing some nice communal cooking, cosy fires, and long walks.
Today we walked 8.5 miles to the nearest McDonald’s.
This is the moon over the fields behind the farmhouse, it’s pretty out here.
