Hi all, am still feeling a little worst for wear after the radiation poisoning and am not feeling overly creative today but I don’t want to leave you all hanging, especially as your correspondence continues to come in so today I will address some of that.

Good news. The procedure worked. Mostly.

The official report back is that the current background levels of radiation are higher than they should be, but not lethal in the near future, and so whilst they work out how to secure the – what I now appreciate is – a nuclear reactor in the engine of this ship, I should get back to life as normal, and continue my treatments until they tell me to stop.

So am back on to my routine. Exercise, stare out the window, float a little, watch TV, watch movies, read, look after the ants, do chores, write these posts. I’ve checked, and I can actually start studying engineering based on the library here, which wouldn’t be a terrible idea.

One thing I have discovered about myself here, which I did not have back in the test unit on earth, is that I am a real devil for ear worms. And not only that, have basically no effective memory for lyrics or a tune.

Fears a funny thing isn’t it. I mean I’m in a sarcophagus anyway. Got no place to be. I’m all alone, I’m literally being poisoned by the environment and still I have room for irrational fears. I should focus on being scared by reality, which is genuinely frightening.

So turns out the computer got a bit wacky after all those silly comedies since I followed them up by binge-watching a horror tv show and a couple of jigsaw movies.

I had a friend at school, who I will call Chan, who had a normal house in a normal street with a normal family. I was friendly with him on and off, although we did not keep in touch once we left school, we were friendly enough then that I would go round to his house.
