It's really got that bad.... No entries for so long that it the page is literally BLANK.... Well, I've been denying myself blogtime in a bid to stay ahead of work, an increasingly impossible, Sisyphean labour: the more work I do, the more I seem to need to do. I was determined to be REALLY ORGANIZED this college year and not fall into my usual habit of chaos mismanagement --- but it's congenital. I just can't stay sorted out. I HATE ADMINISTRATION... That's partly because I am incapable of doing it, suffering from a stupefyingly disabling level of absent-mindedness. I tried to write a brief note to a colleague today and I had to make FIVE ATTEMPTS to do it. Just a few lines... Handwriting anything is near-impossible for me now... I think I might have attention deficit disorder....

Work. It's never going to go away. Everyone has to do it.

I know, I know. Doesn't make it any better, does it?

I haven't got much else to talk about at the moment. But I wanted to break radio-silence, in part because of kind enquiries from Mr Ingram and Mr Reynolds.

Glad you are still about...good news.

Thought you'd done a runner like I.Penman...phew

No I wouldn't do a runner; although I might end up not being able to post for one reason or another.

Massive thanks Baal.

Yes, I was just about to send off a kind enquiry myself Mark! Glad to see you're OK, and my sympathies re work trauma.

Autumn brings lesson plans, and worksheets and marking. My sympathies!

yeah i was about to remind that usual procedure is THREATENING to give it up and deleting all the archives, you're not supposed to actually DO IT!

Delete the archives. Now that's a thought. Or perhaps go through it all and save only the essence. In my case I think it'd be about a paragraph.
