LONDON: "Never mind the Toddlers' Truce, what about one between Hill and the BBC?" asks Payton L. Inkletter, with a lusty wink at his 53 y. old Missus

Be all that as it may, meanwhile:
'In other news…'
16th February 2010

Tuesday: After what was a marathon day and night I got up mid afternoon, still deadly tired, but at least six hours sleep is way better than none. Katie I-don't-recall-who conducted her 15 minute phone health related interview from 4 o'clock as arranged, and I admire her for knowing how to process my often complex answers and get them onto her form. I hope the study can benefit many.

I chatted then to the once wunderkind for some time in the lounge trying to coax energy into my system to perform acceptably for the hours ahead.

Before I knew what, it was time for the birthday girl to be taken by her brother, Umple Dais, to the local shops to buy fushunchups – his shout – and with The Dear Leader we four had dinner as a simple celebration of my darling wife's birthday.

I fell asleep by the end of The 7.30 Report, and remained largely in this state until half way through QI, then revived enough to take Missus Inkletter for her evening exercise walk to the local park. I kept thinking during the walk along the central path about a tree branch falling, and on one of our laps I thought very specifically about the fourth tree which overshadows the walkway, confirming to myself that it's a matter in life of having to accept the risks of walking under any tree, and carry on with ordinary life. A minute later on our return lap towards that tree we heard cracking, and a branch large enough to kill one if it hit one's head fell down, beside the path.

But two days before I was discussing premonitions with The Babies Ink&Peggletter, and how they represent, if real, a transcendence of time, and that I have had so many in my life that I've long been convinced it is a real phenomenon, and Missus Inkletter would have twenty for every one I've every had.

I had recorded ABC television for the duration of our constitutional, and after a chat and putting the alabaster dragon to bed, I watched Lateline: The (Leigh) Sales Graph: Looking very smart in her suit style dark grey jacket and dual-contrasting white camisole, most ideal hair style and subtle make-up, Ms Sales had a most interesting fellow on for an interview tonight: Mark Halperin, political analyst for Time Magazine and editor at large, who looked crisp in a black and blue business suited theme, even though his upperlip sported a five o'clock shadow.

They discussed Halperin's co-authored book (with John Heilemann) 'Race of a Lifetime', about the 2008 US presidential election campaign. What shows with interviews such as this one is the research that Ms Sales does in advance: she obviously has read the entire book, and her questions benignly betray this. The pair were a pleasure to listen to. Halperin is an articulate man.

I didn't have the time to watch Lateline Business, but noted at commencement that Whitney Fitzsimmons yet again was dressed according to consummate awareness of what works in the position of a female presenter of serious current affairs.

I did some writing after midnight, before taking off for my walk before 3. I noticed the Stirling Council had fixed the sprinklers on the large oval that I reported as vandalised last night – that's quick action. Dawn was rapidly approaching and I was still not anywhere near ready for hitting the sack.
