Around lunchtime I lost a day and a half's work in a computer crash. Amongst other things, all the cloth patterns on the image below went. I seem to have somehow caught back up with myself (which means I was working slowly in the first place), though if I'd been running my Time Machine properly (the mac backup system, not that mess of crumpled tin-foil and cardboard over by the piano) it would have been an easier afternoon.

First Pink Nose of the Season

Spent a sunny afternoon in the park discussing episode ideas for the tv show with my two brilliant collaborators. A (for today) pretty privileged work schedule... and a relief to get outside, away from fun but myopia inducing colouring-in. Then I came home and watched a lengthy television documentary about how Sumo wrestlers tie their hair (seriously).

Here is a photograph of a long drowned umbrella.
