Text message from the hospital asking if I’d recommend the Urgent Care Centre. I was waiting a long time, but it’s preferable to a herbalist or faith healer so 🤷.
★☆☆☆☆ 1/5 Would not break elbow again.

@threedaymonk Important clarification: it’s my elbow, not my cranium, that’s fractured.

Radial head fracture 😱 thanks to a lorry parked in the middle of the bicycle lane and workers directing us onto the pavement via a dropped kerb that wasn’t as dropped as it seemed.

I’m happy to see Alan Turing on the new £50 note. I’m sure we’ll see more of then in circulation as they’ll be worth about enough to buy one Freddo in post-No Deal Brexitannia.

10× as much idiosyncratic legacy code understood only by one former employee? I’ve been there before.

In a session about the Hostile Environment and the Data Protection Act immigration exemption. Heard several horror stories about Home Office behaviour already.

I appreciate the new segregated and quiet cycle routes around London, but I don’t imagine all those 90 degree corners were specced by anyone who actually cycles.

Maybe it’s my age, but whenever I hear the phrase “dark mode” I just imagine a late 90s Winamp skin.

Once again, I power-cycled the Amazon TV stick thinking it had crashed when it was just flat batteries in the controller. It knows when the batteries are low, but hides the information in a menu. WHY NOT JUST TELL ME?

Once you can play a few musical instruments, it gets easier to learn others. For example, in 15 minutes you can go from C major scale to Frère Jacques to cool jazz solo to ow ow Jesus ow fuck I think I’ve ruined my arm who knew the tenor fucking RECORDER was so dangerous?

Several recruiters appear to have my email address in their databases with (the same) someone else’s name and career history. Time for some GDPR fun!

Got tickets for MONO in December! I’ve wanted to see them live for years and years.

Can’t see any reason for BBC radio news to introduce a quote from Edwina Currie with her sexual history, except, obviously, misogyny. They didn’t do the same for Johnson, the subject of the story.

Got up early ready for Okinawa Day, put my back out folding laundry (rock and roll!) and now I’m stuck at home feeling decrepit and sorry for myself.

Just got a response from HMRC about my MTD VAT problem. Took them three months because of “an unusually high number of enquiries”. I do not think they will cope well with a no-deal scenario in November.

Don’t blame me, I didn’t get a vote to choose between Kang and Kodos.

Went to the pop-up Gaeltacht, drank beer, and talked in Irish about extremism on Facebook and the etymology of Chinese characters. So basically a totally normal one, as Gaeilge.

I have no signal half the time, but the person behind me is somehow able to shout into their phone continuously all journey. The world is an unfair place.
