And now I'm worrying that the sheer power draw for Twitter is a real problem and I should come off it to reduce my carbon footprint. Aaaaaand back to work.

The seasons will henceforth be known as Survival, Infection, Harvest and Kelvin.

Except for the places where there will be two seasons: heatwave and deep freeze.

Just done a “Life in the UK” test. Failed it by some margin despite a few lucky guesses. Utterly fatuous questions.

In unrelated news a bad thing has happened and I am suffering a really profound urge to punch someone hard in the brain. Life, as the poet says, is what happens when 8bn people share a space rock and an appreciable percentage of them are wankers.

My GOD the amount of whining from the Brexit crowd about inevitable consequences of their win.

Please stop doing this, . We're not "reeling". We're an old, scarred country and we know how to take a punch. Lose the drama.
