It was late on in the morning (ooh, at least 11). The conversation had wandered. It’s taken me a few minutes sitting here to try and piece together the conversation again, but I think we started talking about Dave’s foot noir (his ingenious idea at James’ leaving do) where he kicks a football around a fog-drenched pitch, lamenting James’ absence. We then tried to think of a suitable score for the film, and I came up with Yann Tiersen’s “Comptine d’un autre été: L’après-midi”, an apt lament. I’d only seen it in Aidan Gibbons’ The Piano (YouTube), but apparently it’s from the Amélie soundtrack. So from Amélie, via Jean-Pierre Jeunet, we get to Delicatessen. A vision of dystopian France meant I just had to bring up District 13, then parkour and Casino Royale, but I digress.

After some trouble with our Belkin router recently, we managed to get it replaced under the lifetime warranty — a very satisfying result! The router arrived today, and the packaging that brought it can only be described as overkill:

The other day Paul told me that square wheels (and, indeed, any regular polygon except a triangle) can ride on a road constructed of inverted catenaries. A catenary is the curve made by a telegraph wire when stretched between two poles — a cable hanging under its own weight.

I went on holiday this weekend to Pickering with my parents and Geoff and Gwen. Okay, it’s not that far away — one might argue that it’s not a holiday if the Coastliner goes past the camp site — but we had a really great time, despite the rain on Friday!
