I managed to hurl myself to the ground at a local bus-stop the other day. I put my hands out to cushion the landing and so I have some splendid abrasions. All squeaky antiseptic and healing nicely, but a bit onerous for much typing, though pen and paper is fine. I can also report that having a laptop in your knapsack as you land leads to your chin being driven into the paving as said laptop flies up and hits you in the back of the head. That must be a bruise as the skin seems unbroken. Time for a goatee, perhaps.
It was such a nice day for a walk too, unlike today when the first of the spring gales have kept us awake overnight. Not a day for going out, but since the car’s on the blink too…
The onsite puzzle today was going to have been an Enigmatic Variations puzzle, but you have a new one from Kcit in the series in the Sunday Telegraph today. So deferral not a bad thing perhaps.
Next weekend sees an interesting set-up. You have an Inquisitor from Phi (I am led to believe that it may be at the harder end of my personal spectrum), and if you want to escape to the online Independent puzzle – alas, it’s one of those weeks when I am shifted from my Friday slot (so presumably Friday’s puzzle will have a theme with some sort of anniversary element). And if you choose to abandon The Independent entirely for the safe haven of the Times competition puzzle…well, hard luck again… You’ll just have to do whatever else you can do at the equinox (the Great British Cheese Festival is on, says my calendar). Back on Friday for September 29, when I can confirm there will be a theme with some sort of anniversary element.
