interviews, music and caffeine freedom

I've had a strange couple of days. Yesterday was a long slog, as it involved a day of interviews, starting at 9, and finishing just shy of 7. It was an amazing learning experience - I didn't feel out of my depth, which was my main concern before embarking on it. In fact it was more the logistics - ensuring the interviews didn't over-run, and making sure the right people came in at the right time (despite some administrative errors) and the lack of time to do anything else that caused the problems...

I felt rotten this morning - perhaps something to do with the pokey little meeting room I was in for much of the day, since the air-conditioning didn't work, and we had to have the door closed - so I stayed off work. It did give me the chance to put together a song for 'b3tavision' (note: it's a b3ta site, so it's not for children!). The song - my second 'europop style tune' of the year, although this time limited to two minutes - sounds a bit like this:

jamelopoeia - the seaside shuffle.mp3 (2.8MB MP3 @ 192kbps)

Tomorrow's June.. I have decided to spend the month not drinking any caffeinated beverages. This isn't a problem with tea, since I only drink rooibos tea, but I do like a cup of coffee in the morning, and if I need a bit of a perk up during the day. I've been trying to cut down of late, so I'm hoping for no symptoms of detoxification!

That's all I've got the energy for at the moment.. best get to bed. I have the next four days off work (hooray!) so it'd be good to make the most of them. There are a only couple more bits of editing to do on the podcast, so it'll be ready to go soon!
