I am in no mood to go to work tomorrow. It's a dull time at the moment, rote experiments and tedious work. Plus P___ is being a royal pain in the behind. Sullen, non-communicative - a good case of an untreated bipolar disorder. I'm ready for a vacation. Soon.

Maybe things are not going so well for people in America these days. I am running into more and more people - strangers - who seem jumpy, angry and anxious. Nothing, I think, to do with 9/11 despite the use of that event for political gain by authoritarian elements. More a sense that the world is becoming more and more assertive and American power and influence are on the wane. It's difficult to come down from the top.

Skipped right through April without a thought of this blog. Was only reminded when my friend Mary asked me what a blog was yesterday. It is a rather absurd concept.Why on earth should the personal ramblings of one out of billions of other people, a good chunk of whom are probably thinking and doing very similar things to me, be of any interest to anyone? It's basically no more than a vain conceit. But that alright.
