The Making of Ashen's Tech Dump
A diary by Stuart Ashen.
6:30am Woke up to sound of local DJ being incompetent. Ate 17 Shredded Wheat. Checked the battery on my iPhone 3GS charged overnight - battery at 100%, all OK.
6:50am Left house for walk to Norwich train station. iPhone battery at 73%.
7:30am Arrived at station. Caught train to London. Sat next to a quivering tramp with consumption.
7:35am Checked e-mails.
7:37am iPhone battery dead.
7:38am Attempted to charge iPhone using external USB battery I got from Ebay.
7:39am Put out fire.
7:47am Fell asleep.
9:02am Woke up with a line of snot extending from my nose to my trousers. Everyone in the carriage staring at me.
67:C9im Temporarily forgot how human reckoning of time works.

9:57am Regained consciousness.
10:02am Got on London Underground, Central Line.
10:19am Was recognised by an eager fan who engages me in conversation.
10:23am Realised that fan thinks I'm Simon Pegg.
10:35am Arrived at studio for filming.
10:45am Joined forces with a group of immensely talented people and crafted a short comedy show of such immense quality that the personification of glory itself physically manifested in the car park to weep at its beauty.
2:25pm Continued to produce a short comedy show so good that fictional characters willed themselves into existence just so they could watch it.

5:48pm Left studio and took tube back to Liverpool St. The personification of glory had been clamped.
6:22pm Arrived at station to discover that all trains to Norwich were cancelled due to vandalism at Colchester.
6:25pm Took deep breaths.
6:26pm Panicked some more.
6:35pm Discovered that there is one emergency train back to Norwich. Ran for it along with several hundred other people.
6:40pm Train left station absolutely packed with people. Not even standing room left - several of us had to sit on the ceiling.
8:32pm Arrived back at Norwich. Queue for taxi rank longer than the Great Wall of China. Started walking.
9:10pm Got home to discover 3 different "You were out when we tried to deliver this parcel" cards. Fell asleep on the stairs.
Look out for more Tech Dump next week.
