I also have a cold. I blame you.

Totally unreasonable - as this map will show, it's clear that a combination of the Californian, North Equatorial, South Equatorial and East Australian ocean currents could only have brought germs from Santa Monica to Sydney, and not the other way round.

I won't have it.

Already? That’s harsh, man. I mean, it’s like not cuddling after sex.

This early because of packing to move house on Jan. 2. Need to get stuff we don't need hanging around out.

Ah, fair enough. Good luck with the move. Oh, and leave plates: they always smash in the move and weigh loads.

Mrs. Inca does not subscribe to that POV. We have all of our wedding china that we've used about twice, plus our everyday dishes, and casseroles, serving plates etc.

Cold a little better but now have an annoying cough. Slept in the spare room last night.

The dishwasher is washing the dishes and I'm trying to decide what to make myself for dinner.

I'll probably go with some kind of chicken, since I had beef last night.

Will you be having mustard with that?

It's the new mundane.

No, probably not. I would use mustard if I were cooking pork chops, but not chicken.

It's very hot.

Earlier today it was 41 Celsius, and even now at 8.30pm it's 38.

Neither the latest issue of WSC nor the latest Blizzard have made it to my postbox, on account of the Dutch postal service being a shower of shit.

I'm trying to get my subscriptions changed to the digital editions, which makes me feel like I'm ripping myself off a little as there will be less dead trees piling up in my flat.

I just had yoghurt and clusters for breakfast.

Strawberry, in case you're interested.

It's now 9.55pm and 37 celsius, if anyone is keeping an avid watch of Sydney weather conditions rather than hobbes' yoghurt choices.

We are promised what is known colloquially as a "Southerly Buster" at around midnight which is supposed to cool things down, however the large window on our bedroom faces north, so this will deliver us no relief whatsoever.

Not so. The drop in air pressure on the northerly side of your house created by the wind streaming around it should create an air flow through your house by pulling air into the low pressure area.

Turns out I had one all along without realizing it; at the same time as they've told me this, the fine people at WSC Towers (remember when magazine offices were always characterized as towers? Weird,) have dispatched a new copy which seems a little superfluous, but incredibly gracious.

Love 'em.

I'm into Golden Syrup Weetabix at the moment.

I'm wearing one of my new Swatch watches at work today for the first time. No one has noticed.

I'm in conversation with a very helpful person from our Middle East offices called Ammar Dhilla.

How may I help you?

I went to the doctor over the holiday break, and I'm officially overweight by BMI for the first time in my life. (Not a lot, about ten pounds, but still.)

Trying to eat fewer refined flours and reduce my booze consumption. See if that helps.

More positively, I built a new desk, shelving, and "entertainment console" in our den (a converted garage) over the break, and repaired our leaking toilet. Eat your heart out, Bob Vila.
