I am not sure if I am worried, should be worried, or couldn’t care less, but I am showing more and more signs of being a recluse these days! Give or take a few hours I have been back from Dubai for a week now and with the exception of going down into the basement garage to put the Fat Boy on charge (and not to take it off charge yet!) I have not been out of the front door. As we don’t have a back door that means that I have not been out of the apartment other than up on the roof with moreno and out on the balcony.
To be fair I have had a pretty bad cold most of the week so I have not been out running, so that is pretty abnormal for me – I tend to get out running or on the mountain bike most days, and it is certainly my intention to keep on doing that, starting today actually as I am going for a bike ride once I have posted this.
It gets worse …………..
- I have not sent or received a text message
- I have not made or received a phone call, either mobile or landline
- I have worn the same jogging pants and thick fleece all week
- I have not shaved, trimmed my beard or hair
I have talked to people on Skype and iChat, and my emails and IM activity levels have been as high as ever.
I have actually got no real inclination to change at the moment, but I know a few things are coming up that will ‘make me’ leave the apartment; I need to go and watch the rugby to take some photographs and a video for Almerimar Life this afternoon, I need to go and sort out a wirless signal strength issue as part of a IT contract I have, but that is about it.
Not good really for someone that wants to get more heavily into photography, unless I specialise on photographs of Moreno and landscapes of the marina taken from the balcony!
The truth is I am really happy ‘pottering’ around the apartment and playing with Moreno when I am not at the Mac, and I am one of the least social people you could imagine meeting (or not as is most likely the case). I am the exact opposite to Sands – she goes mad if she doesn’t get out and about every day, and will happily endure dull company in order to get out (maybe just away from me thinking about it), whereas I will only leave the apartment if it is something or someone that I really want to see or do, or if there is no way out of it.
With all the contracts and stuff I am not exactly going to be bored staying in, but I MUST make more effort to get out and about with the camera and camcorder
