In a way this is a continuation of the last post put in this blogging lot.

I can be an asshole, I know. I'm honest, some might say harsh, with prose. If I don't like something I say so, sometimes in reviews, other times I talk to the writer.

Friday morning came rather too soon for me. Charlie went to work whistling his tuneless whistle, and I rather hoped for a quiet day. I went into work for an hour then sloped off home.
