I've been sitting here listening to this odd noise for a while, one of those that you can't quite place, and you're not entirely sure where it's coming from... finally I turned around and there's the cat sitting behind me and licking the carpet. No, I don't know either....

Worked from home yesterday and about mid-morning I heard footsteps coming up the front stairs, followed by a knocking on the door. I was going to ignore it, being busy and suspecting a salesperson, but then I heard my name being called - "Hello M! Hello!" - so I opened the door. Sure enough, someone promoting a new med tech startup and wanting to sign up contributors. I told him to leave the literature at the door as I was working and didn't have time to go through it but he reckoned they were too poor for that. I wish I'd written down the name of the company he said he represented, as his hands were shaking while he packed his flyer back away; can't help wondering if it was a scam. And NOT impressed by his tactics - he must have seen my car's number plate which has my name on it. If he hadn't used my name I would never have opened the door. Probably what he was counting on.
