I'll set the scene. To reach my flat block you have to turn off the road and pass, immediately, through a set of automatic gates, driving round the back of the road facing block of flats and into a rear car park, next to which my block, perpendicular to the aforementioned block, majestically lies.
There's one communal front door, with buzzers for each flat, then a brief, minimalist lobby and stairs.
When the delightful gentleman, armed with my Lamb Madras, drives through the gates, round the back, jumps out of his car, and presses the buzzer to flat 29, should I:
A) Pick up the intercom, greet him politely, and 'buzz him up', waiting for the knock at my flat door? B) Pick up the intercom, greet him politely, inform him 'I'll be right down' and proceed down the stairs to the front of the building? C) A.N.Other.
I've never truly got into them before but I enjoy their music - haunting and beautiful (on TV soundtracks and the like).
I'm a big Explosions In The Sky fan but I've overdone them recently. I've always found that this kind of instrumental tunage is excellent for concentrating on work, and god knows I've a lot of work to do today (yes yes I know, I should log off TWTD...).
Alternatively, recommendations of other bands of this ilk would be grand.
As a few of you may know, I've suffered, along with millions of others across the world, from mental health issues for many years, battling depression and anxiety. I've also developed a love for running, which has become a form of self-treatment.
So, in an effort to raise money for MIND, the mental health charity, and, just as importantly, raise awareness of mental health issues, I've decided to run the Athens marathon in November this year. I think it's extremely important that we talk about these things, in an effort to break down barriers and tackle the stigma around mental illness.
It's a way off, granted, but if anyone is generous enough to donate, I will be indebted to you. This ain't gonna be easy! Link and more details below...
