AWOL WOL (and schtuf...)

Did a lot of skiving at work tonight...after overtime from 6pm until 10pm, then mindless keying from 10pm till 12.20am...

We had 'WTL' again tonight...this time it was not the usual bunfight, since we had to speak in turn as we had the two new team members with us. They are both deaf and the signer for them wouldn't have been able to cope otherwise!!!

Tony presented a discussion on ''The Knowledge' for MDEC Keyers'. His plan is to produce a map of the UK and a new learning system so that we can all learn postcodes, county shortcuts and where they are situated in the UK...anoraks not provided...

Was a nightmare to take notes for; lots of ideas and most of them overlapped, so (naturally) I took an hour to translate my notes and write up the minutes afterwards lol!!

Then it was lunch...after which I managed to waste half an hour chairing a 'Duty Obs' meeting...and then a further half hour typing up the minutes for that.

Very little mail, so had a brief period of being logged out and then went home at 5am.

Played with a long twig most of the way home and screeched at the crows for company as I walked...yesterday I had a conversation with a WOL, but there was no exchange of 'To Whit, To Woo...' today.

Now I'm back, The Hoobs are on TV and I'm going to bed...

Have a Weird Cabaret meeting tommorrow from 6pm till 9pm...and I don't have to start work till 10:40. Huzzah!!!

I'm starting an hour late on Thursday as well (after 'A-Live'), but am doing overtime on Friday from 6pm onwards as well...need to make up some overtime hours as I have a whole week off at the end of February; was supposed to be going to Prague in that week, but due to circumstances beyond my control, I'm going to be spending the week working on Journey Home (my short film) instead;)

Hooble Toodle Doo!!

The Lunatics have taken over the Asylum...

More Weird Cabaret research...also been digging through my old art folder for a 'madness' project I did some time ago...too big to scan unfortunately...all on A1-ish paper!!

Index of English and Welsh Lunatic Asylums and Mental Hospitals
Based on a comprehensive survey in 1844, and extended to other asylums.

The Lunatics Have Taken Over The Asylum
Fun Boy Three

i see a clinic full of cynics
who want to twist the peoples' wrist
they're watching every move we make
we're all included on the list

the lunatics have taken over the asylum
the lunatics have taken over the asylum

no nuclear the cowboy told us
and who am i to disagree
'cos when the madman flips the switch
the nuclear will go for me

the lunatics have taken over the asylum
the lunatics have taken over the asylum

i've seen the faces of starvation
but i just can not see the points
'cos there's so much food here today
that no one wants to take away

the lunatics have taken over the asylum
the lunatics have taken over the asylum

the lunatics have taken over the asylum - take away my right to choose
the lunatics have taken over the asylum - take away my point of view
the lunatics have taken over the asylum
the lunatics have taken over the asylum - take away my dignity, take these things away from me
the lunatics have taken over the asylum
the lunatics have taken over the asylum - take away my family, take awaythe right to speak
the lunatics have taken over the asylum take away my point of view, takeaway my right to choose
