I was unsurprisingly shattered coming home on Saturday but after a quick bath went over to Duncan and Amelia’s to watch Dark Passage instead of going to bed. It was good as ever, classy noir action with Bogie in bandages and all. Then after the forces of fate conspired to play a pretty odd trick on us. As I was about to go Duncan said he had the new White Stripes album and it was actually pretty good. As we started to listen to the first track I noticed that the band were on the (muted) TV. So we turned the stereo back to the TV and found that we’d somehow managed to exactly co-ordinate the sound of the record to the first playing of the video to the same song.
Got back late and was too tired to sleep for a while, but then passed out for a good 12 hours or so and woke up groggy to “Headache On Sunday,” which went as well as can be expected.
And now back to work for another six days. Heigh ho.
