I thought it was long, boring, silly and annoying. Nothing really happened except endless attempts to capture the angst of adolescent romance. Without even a whiff of success. The worst of the Harry Potter films I reckon.

I've lost 7kg since January. I weigh less than I ever have since high school. 65kg. After an early but sustained L'Arche-fueled effort of 72kg and dropped down to 69kg after the canoeing trip. Then in the last two months I've lost another 4kg. It's probably all this diabetic-friendly food. One of these days you'll find my sad, frail little corpse curled up on the couch, with a cup of tea in my hand, blood sugar levels approaching nil and John Colman playing in the background.

Since I started using Google Contacts sync with my iPhone I've had big headaches with addresses. Addresses in the iPhone always end thinking they are in the United States no matter what I do in Google Contacts or on the iPhonee. I still don't understand exactly why this happens but I think it's probably to do with the fact that Google stores addresses as a big multi-line text block and the iPhone stores them as different fields. It's clearly a bug, but Google doesn't seem to think so and I'm not actually sure it's Apple's problem or Google's.
However, the problem improves if I use Nuevasync instead of Google Sync. And so far it doesn't seem to be any worse in other respects. So this is what I will do.

I just got my bottom-right wisdom tooth sawed out of my face. The whole thing took about 20 minutes. I got to the surgery about 3:50pm and left about 4:10pm with my tooth, a fistful of gauze and a badly photocopied wound management sheet. The dentist had done about a million wisdom teeth. He even had to saw into my jaw to pull it out, but he scarcely paused. Sometimes there were three sharp instruments jammed into my mouth at once including the bone-saw, but the dentist sung along to the radio during the whole operation.
Now I have a very fat cheek and can't talk much. I also have some missing jaw so the next few days might be painful.

First person: [quietly to themselves] I'm going to throw her to the lions and let them make the kill.
Second person: Would you like some honey on your pancakes?
First person: [very happily] Yes please!
