A Normal Saturday

Last night I had a bit of an episode. I had been struggling all day with Word formatting, which apparently has a mind of its own. Finally, a heady combination of desperation, hayfever tablets, and red wine got to me. Like...there were tears. Lots of them. And snot, a lotta snot. Everywhere.

Word keeps crashing. Excel keeps crashing. Captions keep turning into text boxes. I simply Cannot Take It Any Longer.

My thesis is standing at about 11,000 words, 42 pages, 1579 lines. When it is all over, I hope you'll still be around. I even have a list of things to write about, so I'll be sad if I come back and my only 2 readers have gone. Hello Mum, hello Rob. Please stick around and check back in after 12pm October 29.

Otherwise I'll be as sad and dejected as this lonely pair of shoes....

...and things are shit enough right now without me feeling like an old shoe.

    Just wanted to let you know that in between my experiments (from which I still have NO results, even though the original submission date was 30th October - stupid statistical analysis program, R) and writing my thesis, I like to read your blog. Looks like you're up to 5 readers... Enjoy.
