David is... (ten days of Facebook)

David is gainfully employed in a position of responsibility, but undoubtedly he will soon go mad with power. 12:36pm David is contemplating the narrow range of emotional expression that Facebook status updates allow. He is also contemplating his poor command of grammar and syntax. 3:17pm David is contemplating the narrow emotional range of expression that Facebook status updates allow. 12:56pm David is thinking that all these status updates would be an interesting art project. But no doubt someone has already been there. 6:21am David is picking up pieces and carrying on, as he must. There's work to do and limited time for regrets at his own stupidities. 6:49am David is in Sydney, awake far too early and glumly contemplating his status. 5:51am David is at home in Sydney communing with his cat and sorting his mail. 10:49pm David is in Hong Kong in a Cathay Pacific queue. He is 9 hours from home and glad of it... 10:57am David is in Hong Kong awaiting transport to the luxury hotel in which he will collapse overnight before completing his journey home... 8:58pm David is in Bristol preparing to head back to the airport to begin the long trek home via Hong Kong. But there will be a luxury hotel involved... 8:15pm David is in Bristol somewhat cold and footsore, watching Arnolfini from the outside and trying to channel a decade or two of art while sipping coffee and stealing wifi. 2:12am David is in Bristol about to set out on a walking adventure on a chilly grey day. He thinks he is crazy, and the schizophrenic part of him agrees. 9:31pm David is in Bristol bemused by Bristolian feminist scholars viewing America's Next Top Model. 10:48am David is in Bristol in someone else's office feeling much warmer and mildly productive. 2:35am David is in Bristol freezing his proverbial off. 9:07pm David is in Bristol with post-brunch status anxiety. 11:56pm David is waiting in a bus station to be taken to Bristol. Its OK, but he would like teleporters to exist to make things like this unnecessary. 9:44pm David is in London. 7:54pm

that's all very well, david, but i didn't realise you were one of those people whose current diary is a draft memoir just waiting to be inflicted on a long-suffering and unsuspecting public.

and anyway, when are you going to join my vampire army? let me correct that... the army of postmodern performance vampires valliantly crusading against the army of conventional theatre vampires...
