Straight to class, by a route which seemed to involve as many hills as possible (Castle Hill to get to Histon Road, then up the slope to the roundabout over the A14, then uphill over the railway line the other side). Lost 1lb this week, which is the one I put on last week. Mildly frustrating, but I haven't been perfect, even though it's been pretty hard work. Too many meals on the move really. Shall try to be good this week other than dinner tomorrow and Saturday's fun. Don't need to eat at the pub on Thursday even if I'm there most of the evening, can grab something sin free before I arrive or something. I think I'm going to allow myself 5-10 sins a day on the other 5 days of the week though, cos otherwise it just gets too hard.

Can't update graphs since all the data is over there -> not currently attached to a working machine. Dabs have shipped the bits, but still can't be more accurate than 1-3 days for when they'll arrive. Oh and I sent Em's birthday present: silly me had forgotten she's staying with my mum and dad this week anyway, so I didn't need to remember her address in Newcastle after all. Spent a pleasant evening quietly geeking in a halfway decent environment again, though the keyboard mapping is somewhat b0rken. @"# are all hard to get right, Played some more gridlock, had a nice stirfry for dinner. Rjk's been off watching pirates (Arrr!) again, which is why I've been able to borrow his computer. Took me a while to find the right runes to startx to make it use a different display (startx -- :1): Richard told me them the other day but I didn't write it down. Odd using a different window manager. Who on earth thinks click-to-focus is a sensible default? I guess this is what we get for trying to be windowsey.

Think I'm going to produce fruit salad of some description now and then go to bed with more of The Scar. Nice and cool this evening so maybe I'll get some sleep.
