Work routine is settling in. In this job, OCD is a definite advantage. I will soon have that shop up to laboratory standards of cleanliness although it would be easier if I could make the customers pass an entrance exam.
Samuel’s Girl edits are done and sent back to the editor, and I’m not working Saturday so Friday’s smoky-drinky evening is all systems go. I’m going to splash out on a good bottle now that I will no longer be reliant on the eBay stuff to pay bills. Normal activity should resume next week and I can get back to other projects.
Speaking of which, in Panoptica I had not considered allowing the Coalition (the government is permanent coalition in Panoptica and it doesn’t matter who you vote for, they all get in) total control over people’s movements, only total observation. However, it seems that might be possible. Going somewhere you’re not supposed to go? An implant can give you a ‘nudge’ to send you in the right direction.
Right. One more day and that’s the first week done. I must be doing it right because I’ve already been asked to take overtime to cover for someone on holiday in a few weeks.
