    Tonight's quality entertainment began with a rewatch of The Bourne Identity (2002). Good stuff, though I bet the various stunts and such would be done in an even more spectacular fashion nowadays - the bar really seems to have been raised on that stuff, presumably because a lot of it can be enhanced with CGI nowadays

    And after that, an early (as in, it has Linda in it) episode of the later (as in, starring Krister Henriksson rather than Rolf Lassgård) Wallander (in Swedish): Afrikanen. Quite a good one, I thought.

    Goodnight all

    deep and abiding joy.

    The moving monkeys are in here next week not the week after.

    I can feel "off sick through stress" coming on as I type.

    Morning denizens

    Nice and grey out

    And outside is a mere 17°C, which has allowed the temperature in the living room to come down to 25°C since last night

    It's 28.5 deg C in here, cooler outside, and as humid as the proverbial gorilla's armpit.

    Ho hum.

    Another cwt or so of data books just made their way to the skip.

    And some more are going now.

    The weather forecast talks of rain tomorrow. But it keeps saying that, then rescinding it when the time grows near. I'll believe it when it droppeth from heaven upon the place beneath

    I did a little dance outside when it rained quite heavily a fortnight last Sunday.

    Unfortunately it went away again.

    The dental surgery just called because they've had a cancellation and can see me tomorrow at - yes - 2:30!

    I shall take the time as a good omen for now

    And there's a letter arrived with an appointment with the audiologist, so maybe my execrable hearing will finally get a boost. I asked to be sent to them back in January or February and heard nothing (pun not intended, but I'll take it), so I asked the doctor to chase it up when I was there on Monday, and it seems to have worked.

    One problem: it's two weeks today, and you're supposed to have your ears checked for wax, with removal thereof if necessary, at least two weeks before. And the GP surgery is closed today because GPs are the last bastion of Early Closing Day, and online they don't have a nurse appointment available until the same week as the audiology appointment

    So now I have to dick around trying to sort all that out. On the bright side, once my ability to hear is improved, I'll finally be able to watch all those films I've bought that don't have subtitles

    Spoke to the audiology people. They said that if I don't have a "problem with wax" (AFAIK I don't) then it should be OK. If, when I get my ears checked a few days before the appointment, it turns out that I do have such a problem, then I can just call and they'll reschedule.

    Incidentally, I find it rather odd that a department entirely dedicated to dealing with hearing problems expects issues to be resolved by phoning them. They don't even have one of those special text-to-talk numbers. They do list a number for SMS-only contact, so maybe that's what people who can't use the phone do instead nowadays.
