It's the weirdest thing. I'm sitting out in the backyard with my laptop on the glass patio table and for the last 20 minutes there have been about 50 or 60 seagulls swarming overhead. They are just circling and swooping, but really high up in the atmosphere. I wonder what's going on up there.
I can see their reflections in the tabletop and they look like those little balls of mercury that you see in your peripheral vision sometimes. And now I have the urge to rub my eyes really hard so that I can see all those patterns and colours and spirograph shapes. I used to love doing that.
Eva took a couple of pictures of the circling seagulls, but they just look like somebody trying to fake a UFO shot.
I'm really glad I'm not going to work tomorrow, even though I still have so much work to do on this grant application, because I snapped at my colleague today when I misunderstood him and thought that he was saying that we should change the budget.
It's like Henry Ford said, the time when you should be taking a vacation is when you can least afford to be taking a vacation.
Good thing I'll soon be taking a vacation.
I love Stanley Donwood's art. He was just recently named one of the top illustrators in British media, though he is better known for his Radiohead album cover art.
