Oh. I suppose I can conclude they're not going to ring me today then. I won't get down until I'm actually rejected, I'll try not to waste time constructing negative (they've offered it to someone else, but don't want to tell anyone else until they know if this person will take it or not) or positive (they want me so much they've spent all day renegotiating the job so I can work two days a week and not three until the MPhil is done) mad scenarios, and will just wait patiently to be told.

I'll try...

Gah. There is little worse than agonising about what to do with your life. But forcing yourself to come to a decision and then realising that the World TM isn't going to let you do what you want is definitely up there.

My sympathies.

The distraction technique usually works for me - how about putting a good film on tonight, or maybe doing a bit of maths just for the fun of it?

Best distraction technique of all: find another job and apply for it. If you've always got one in the air you're more robust against rejection, and by Sod's Law you're therefore less likely to be rejected...

I suggest ringing up to enquire about the job. Phrase it in such a way that it sounds like you are curious whether it was taken, and that if it has been you would appreciate some constructive criticism to aid with future applications. They might divulge some information and you'll also get brownie points for being keen.
