And even if I do get out on Friday, I'll probably be under orders to do as little as possible, as causing a punctured artery to re-open is generally considered a bad idea.

    Anyway, I've just checked and I don't have to cancel the hotel until noon on Friday so I'll hang fire for now. Maybe a virulent plague will decimate the queue ahead of me in time for them to get me in tomorrow
    We should bring the party to you!

    But you probably want to get better...

    Itís not the worse excuse Iíve seen to avoid coming to Yorkshire, but given the circumstances Iíll let you off!
    ďLive a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.Ē

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    I was on the list for angiogram-and-discharge this afternoon, but an emergency case came in so I got bumped.

    This means I'm now on the list for tomorrow afternoon. Even if it happens and everything goes smoothly, I still probably won't get out of here until teatime, which would be too late to get the train up there and join you all before closing time.

    So I'm afraid I'm almost certainly not going to be there, barring some Christmas miracle

    I'll be in town about lunchtime. What do the locals recommend I do to while away the time until this evening?

    As it's cold I'd have suggested the Everyman cinema, but there appears to be bugger all on. If shopping is your thing you can head for the arcades (on the right as you walk up Briggate). If you need a decent feed then you could try heading to Greek Street where the fancier restaurants and whatnot live - there are cheaper options most places you'll walk though. What hotel are you in?
