Just an update for subscribers


Probably you are wondering where these promised new articles and content is, and I should tell you what is going on.

The first thing is, quite a lot of work, through there’s nothing new about hat, and being basically self-employed, that is definitely preferable to the converse situation.

The other problem is, though, that on Monday a series of not great things happened. I managed to forget my computer lead in Poznan last week coming back on Friday to Warsaw, and over the weekend I ran out the battery. On Monday the lead was sent over by colleagues and I got it Tuesday, but I decided to make the best use of a computer-free day by arranging to see as many people as I could that day, and get as many pending meetings in Warsaw as possible dealt with and use the time that way.

I made in fact enough appointments to get into some time stress, and the weather was not great so taxis were not being reliable. I was therefore catching a bus and needed to run to the bus. It closed the door just as I ran in, probably due to the bloody-mindedness of the driver, which ZTM drivers are famous for, and I tripped and bashed my head against some hard element in the bus, and scraped my shin on the threshold of the bus.

I licked my wounds and as far as Tuesday and Wednesday were concerned I had a two productive days, catching up with what hadn’t been doable without the computer lead. The problem happened on Thursday morning. I still had headaches from the head bash, and these were intensifying, what worried me more was the infected state of the leg wound, which appears to have developed Erysipelas, which is rather worrying. It is pretty painful and gets in the way of a lot of things. I went to the doctor, who happens to be a Nigerian Prince working in Warsaw, and got told off for not coming earlier, and for not getting a scan. I am now on antibiotics and told to take it easy. So that’s what’s happening.  Apparently in recovery from concussion you are supposed to think as little as possible, and I don’t really want to write thoughtless articles, so I will go to bed, and either sleep or just hack my daughter’s Netflix account. That’s how bad it is.

Hopefully this rest and relaxation will be restorative and enable me to come back soon with more and better content for you. In the meantime, please don’t unsubscribe, but instead have a browse around some of the old stuff, tell your freinds about articles you like. I am having a wonderful January views-wise so far, thanks to Lydka and her TED talk, thank you, Lydka.

So off I go to bed. See you all later, hopefully.

  1. Rest well!

  2. Aha. All those unreturned pens catching up with you.

    The favours comment remains uncontested. In that one, I was most certainly in earnest. Oh, that and the question on YouTube about hard/soft broad/slender distinctions originating in vowels or in consonants.

    Get well. Try to think. And I mean really THINK.

    Hopefully the language articles, which usually contribute to making visits here worthwhile, are forthcoming.
