I am just SO good at keeping promises to myself. Not.
Quite apart from keeping my promise to leave the offices during lunch on Wednesdays and go have coffee somewhere or take a walk, I landed up working until 7pm last night! Granted, I only have to work overtime once a month and that is the day when I submit the management reports on the previous month's finances but still, it left me feeling pretty tired and not that keen on coming to work this morning.
Anyway, I got to the station with 10 minutes to spare last night and quickly went into Caffe Ritazza on platform 1 at London Bridge for a hot chocolate. I used my Bite card so I got a 20% discount which meant that a large hot chocolate cost only £2 (the first South African to remind me that this is the equivalent of R30 will get a black eye).
I'm reading Franz Kafka's The Trial at the moment. I'd read parts of the book for a course in post-modern literature back in 1993. I felt like a bit of post-modernism but I chose this book in error. The book I was looking for was actually Nausea by Jean-Paul Sartre and I might read that next. The original title for this book was Der Process and that actually makes more sense to me. Not only is it quite a process trying to read this book (I'm half kidding), it also seems more of a process that the poor protagonist of the book undergoes. I hope to finish this book tonight or tomorrow.
