All quiet on the North Eastern Front

Another day. No more words written. And I can’t even blame SKY TV – our run of audiovisual disasters continues unabated: the box is buggered. Or a while now we’ve only been able to get about half the channels we used to. I spoke to the Sky Guy and he says it’s probably because half the channels are transmitted horizontally and the other half vertically. So BANG – if something goes wrong with one of the directions you lose half your programmes.

I’ve tried turning the TV on its side, but that doesn’t seem to help. Nor does running round the house, whistling the theme tune to the Flintstones. With alternative rude lyrics.

Maybe I’m just going to have to bite the bullet and get back to actually writing something? ... Nah, that’s just crazy talk.
