Something went wrong with Inflato
I thought I was in the front carriage, but am actually in the rear. Do I walk all the way through the train before Liverpool St?

Security guards. Why do they all have shaven heads?
I know it’s the done thing when staying in a hotel, but I can’t bring myself to lerave a sodden towel lying on the bathrooom floor
Essex Uni seems a LONG way from Colchester station. #iwmw2009
I suddenly remember Colchester. Last here to watch Lush play in the nineties.
Some “mad” people are actually just bullies with a weird modus operandi
Falafel for breakfast
Accidentally poking a contact lens out before 8am… that’s got to be a first
I am an hungred. Where is the trolley service?
On train to Colchester and #iwmw2009 They’re running posh Gatwick Expresses from Brighton this morning. No WiFi though.
#iwmw2009 Should people have more than one twitter account? Just worrying about my non-IWMW friends getting bored with IWMW tweets.
Am reminded once more of the need for a “No Stinking” compartment on public transport. FFS have a pee BEFORE you go out…
Furious to have been spammed by the Tory party *again*. I see they’re rebranding; there’s a lot of green in their new logo. Don’t be fooled.
#oddpredictivetextingpriorities “ATV” comes up before “but”
@jonronson It was just the style of your morning Twitter greeting today that put me in mind of him…
@sapartridge At least I have something to read to take my mind off the journey! ;)
Stranded at the bottom of Elm Grove again… :(
You run for a bus. People at stop not getting that bus. They see you run. Do they tell driver to hang on a second? Do they buggery.
It’s a little known fact that Adam Ant had a very large cousin, Abund and a nerdy little sister, Ped.
At conference in Colchester Tuesday to Thursday next week… maybe I’ll take the opportunity to write some more on the journeys etc.
Fairly sure the term “passive-aggressive” was invented by bullies to assuage any guilt they might be feeling and shift blame to the victim.
Too late to get free t-shirt at new Apple store in Brighton.
…with the novel itself. Still, nice to see her in action, as it were.
Dreamed about central character from my novel for the first time. She was in the Big Brother house with a serial killer, so not much help…

Quite funny that a scam email (of the Nigerian type) is from a “Peter McWealth”. Do they think I’m McStupid?
#thingsonlyiseemtoremember Young woman in a sitcom soliloquizing for a while, occasionally using the expression “Oh toe!” as an expletive.
Had stitches out this aftenoon. Then, *after* surgery closes, wound reopens… typical.
#thinsonlyiseemtoremember Found the “flipping brigadier”song: http://ping.fm/8wN08
#thingsonlyiseemtoremember … 2/2 “Radio” fired his boss out of a torpedo tube. There was also a sequence with an animated talking penguin.
#thingsonlyiseemtoremember Comedy set in a submarine - partly a very loose parody of M*A*S*H as one character was called “Radio” 1/2
We don’t remember dreams long otherwise the memory of them would feed into subsequent dreams and we’d end up with a kind of dream feedback
Listening to CD of Inspiral Carpets Greatest Hits. Had forgotten how good they were…

The surface is fine and powdery - I can pick it up loosely with my toe
If symptoms persist, insult your doctor
Note to self: stop sending yourself notes
Imagining Sand Witches in some kind of pointy hat, broomstick and Berber costume combo
Why do people wear those odd sandals that look like flan-cases for the feet?
The whole city seems washed clean this morning, even the air!
Then the storm went WAAAY over the top.

Thunderstorms have been spoilt by their overuse in TV and film. There’s one in Brighton now and I just keep thinking it’s all a bit cliched.
