I have realised that what with bank holidays and other such things I only have 11 working days left in my current job. That is not a lot of time… I probably should start to shred all those papers that have built up over the last *four* years. That is rather a lot of paper. I should also transfer lots of files on to the shared file system. That is rather a lot of files. I think I could be busy over the next 11 working days.
I have got a bit behind in updating what book I am currently reading. At the moment it is “The Double” by Jose Saramago, an interesting if weird read. You have to be willing to read very long sentences because the author’s style seems to involve him avoiding the full stop (although all other punctuation does not appear to be a problem). Sometimes there is a whole page without a full stop and also you have to be aware that conversations are not punctuated and just move from person to person without any warning. But even so, it is quite readable. Saramago won the Nobel Prize for Literature, so it seems that punctuation is not a requirement to win that award. There is hope for us all.
