    Which begs the question…

    What is it?

    (Or, as I have just wondered, is the joke that it hasn’t arrived, and probably never will, but today is a funny day for announcing its appearance to make that sarcastic point?)

    No, it actually has arrived, on only the second attempt, and a mere one hundred and twelve days since I asked for it.

    But I can’t tell you what it is, because it came to my work address (I figured it was less easy to lose a massive university building than it was to lose the Uberflat), so I can’t tell you yet.

    Wow, good timing. I hate April fools’ day’s twelve hours of suspicion and mistrust.

    I hope she likes it. 112 days is long enough to give pretty disproportionate expectations… :)

    Aye. But I carefully waited until gone noon to post about it!

    I hate it too – I spent the whole of my breakfast this morning not-really-believing anything said on Today because of it…

    Aaaah, your silly ‘blog is still on GMT, hence my concern!

    April fools’ sucks. Did Today do one this year? The stuff they publish is often so close to plausible against a background of absurdity that the shit signal:noise ratio makes detection quite impossible. Or maybe just proves that all news is lies every day of the year.
