Now that's my kind of motorcycle.

In other news, I really, really have to get started on the important stuff, rather than thinking "I'll start that once I've done X". Procrastination is my enemy.

In other other news, it remains Far Too Fucking Hot. The aircon at $ORK is set to "just too high" and is thus hot enough that I want nothing but sleep. Of course, this is because the ends of the L-shaped playpen 150-person "office"[0] are apparently as cold as people can stand. These are the same ends that either wear gloves and thick jackets while it's fine for us at the corner in winter, or they've got it fine and we've got heatstroke. They don't have jackets and gloves because it's winter, so apparently we have to boil. My comments that it is because of the ludicrous size of the playpen have been ignored. I know I'm not going to win this one, ever since we were told that the extra power-points we've all been given "aren't rated" and thus Must Not Be Used for desk-fans or anything else that might bring the temperature down to a sensible level.

[0]: An office should seat at most 6 people, though knocking through a wall so that an entire team can sit and share jokes work together is almost permissable, as the members of the team still have a bit of privacy if they think and move their monitors. 150 people in one room is far too fucking big to call an office, but I can't think of a proper term for such a place. Cubicles would be an improvement.

Did you get *all* of your redlines? As in, for each section you wrote?

I got three sections of the four. I'm still waiting on the fourth.

I have a fucking BAD feeling about this. I think they're taking those sections and making them into separate books. Ethan's not answering any of my mails, so maybe it's undecided right now.

You and me both, man.

Then again, right now I'd kill for any bike that didn't a) get stolen and b) I could afford to insure...

I'd love to have the tank bike, but honestly, these days I'd be happy with a Segueway for getting to and from work. I know your side of the pond has always suffered from high gas prices, but it's a new thing over here and it's killing me. If I could Segueway around town and only use gas for long hauls...that would be ace.
