Last week I was lucky to be invited to dine at the illustrator Paul Bommer and animator Nick Appleton's home. Their hospitality is always wonderful and their house is stuffed with curios for the curious such as this ginger bread biscuit(see drawing)which is as hard as baked clay but impossible to eat.
Global rumour purported that the world was going to end on Saturday 21st May 2011, it is reason enough to down tools and stay in pyjamas. Monday is a preferable day for an Apocalypse since most people I know don't care for Monday's at all so what better excuse can there be but to laze all the way through the start of the very last day of the world. When the Apocalypse failed to show up, I decided it would be better to look busy afterall and get on with this job called living. To make up for a wasted day, I drew a ginger biscuit. It's back to the drawing board, the pencils and pens are out, the wind blows, the dogs howl, and the drugs are still being pushed in the street corner. Bliss.

Now I've got my eyes planted on the soon to be released Pelikan Edition Demonstrator M1005. The instrument appeals because the internal mechanisms are visible. It's a beautiful piece of engineering way beyond my budget...if life is about unsatisfied desires, I've just added another one to my interminable list.

At present, it is a little irksome trying to key in significant calendar dates into my Smartphone, more so when somebody else is watching me. Accomplishing this seemingly simply task with an air of nonchalance is something I have as yet to master. Invariably, the Smartphone makes me feel like a klutz because once all the information has been entered, it soon becomes apparent that all the details I have painstakingly keyed into the device have gone in a puff because I forgot to press the 'Done' button.
'What's done cannot be undone.' Perhaps Lady Macbeth wouldn't have had the same problem. She was a tremendous do-er. If she had a Smartphone, one wonders what her preferred ap(s) of choice would be?
