5:10 - Wake up. No sign of Alan. Feel oddly relieved.
10:01 - Get into office - still no sign of Alan.
10:27 - Consider walking past office where Alan might be.
10:28 - Worry I might be taking this too far.
10:30 - Nah, he's not there.
10:34 - Maybe he's poorly.
10:35 - Mmm... almond croissant.
10:40 - Realize the sweet sweet pasty only makes me think of Alan more.
10:41 - Typing 'Alan more' makes me think of 'Alan Moore'. Shall I get that 'Lost Girls' thing he's just done? Dunno, looks a bit pervy. And quite expensive.
11:14 - Mournfully hum 'Superman' theme to self. No Alan.
11:15 - Start to worry about being banned from Talkback. Fuck it, they only make programmes about houses these days anyway.
12:05 - A tee-shirted man comes into office 'looking for sugar...' It's commenter Pugh! He reports no sign of Alan. Or his 'big car'. The plot thickens (with sugar).
13:44 - Confirm that Alan is not in Richard's Megastore (GW2 top place in the TV DVD charts), or nearby eaterie Julia's Meadow. AlCon now set at 'Reduced Sugar'.
14.20- He's not in the lego department in Hamley's either.
15.06 - Producer asks if I've sent scenes bundled as one document, to producer's mac address. In fact I have sent scenes individually to a different address. Oh Alan, why hast thou forsaken me?
16:49 - No Alan.
