Because, given the lost hour, I really got out of work today at 2.45pm, not the fake 3.45 we’re playing at. Which means the sun was still blazing. And I managed to hightail my way home, grab a beach towel, a couple of beers, Lord Dunsany’s The King of Elfland’s Daughter, and bike my way over to the beach. Where I lay down and read and drank and listened to the sound of the waves coming in till a couple of friends happened by with their dogs, and then much merriment ensued.

Good times, good times. Same thing tomorrow, I reckon. Yup yup. Have to get rid of this irradiated white color my skin unfortunately happens to be wearing!
