Hitting the new year running:

January 7

Kathleen is very pleased with herself for finding $15.30. Now she can have lunch. 1:03pm Now, if she could only repeat that trick.

Kathleen is trying to work out why it is warm in her office and just realised it might be the sun. 3:18pm She has a high IQ.

Kathleen has never met a sub-par pantihose she didn’t hate. 4:50pm This is not prejudice – she takes it on a case-by-case basis. They’re all dreadful.

January 8

Kathleen happy to finally know who W.G.P. is. 9:50am Employee of Collins who started inserting his own quotations into calendars. A position he disappointingly did not abuse.

Kathleen is shocked. Shocked! Such language! 9:42am Also, still amused that after decades of denying it the Courier Mail went tabloid.

Kathleen is waiting for 3 minutes to enjoy the taste good. 1:18pm It did.

Kathleen is one upload away from being done with her travel diary. 3:17pm She enjoys delayed gratification.

Kathleen is finished uploading her travel journal! 10:45pm It’s here. More on that later.

January 16

Kathleen is suffering from a tiredness-induced nervous tic in one eyelid that she hopes makes her look menacing and edgy but probably just makes her look unbalanced. 11:25am There it goes again.

Kathleen is suddenly overcome by an overwhelming desire to see “Deep Secret” as a graphic novel. 11:54am Any takers?

January 17

Kathleen is having a crisis of conscience. 9:19am Still here.

Kathleen is having a crisis of conscience. Would anyone be willing to help her split hairs? 9:22am Take that as a ‘no’, then?

Kathleen is going to see Sting! 10:55am And he had a beard?

January 23

Kathleen is sure she ought to know better than to go to concerts on school nights. 3:27pm Information =/= knowledge =/= wisdom.

January 24

Kathleen is startled to hear her cousin has been shot. 11:12am In the head. But not badly.

Kathleen is running out of things to look at on the internet and should probably finish some work. 6:43pm She did not make it quite to the end.

January 25

January 29

Kathleen is wondering whether not being embarassed has lowered her standards. 11:21am And whether that is anything to be ashamed of? Note spelling.

Kathleen is running out of time and into too many words. 2:40pm Also, she can get biro ink all over her fingers without even trying!
