bit better..

it's ok..this has cheered me up for the time being..


i am not my usual self..i have lost my favourite pencil, and it's causing a full-on major freakout..this isn't just any old's a zebra drafix 0.5mm, which has since been discontinued..and it's not merely the fact that it was the most comfortable piece of writing equipment ever, a pleasure to write with..but this pencil saw me through some tough undergraduate dissertation (all 9 months of it) M.A., with it's own painful dissertation..and it has also seen me through the first 6 months of my Ph.D.'s like an old reliable friend has just upped and left without a word....bum.

to make matters worse, i thought i might calm myself down/cheer myself up by listening to this week's adam & joe show, but totally forgot that they were on holiday this week, and were replaced by alan carr..

..alan carr????? i ask you..

internet envy..

i'm supposed to be doing a load of work, but i keep getting distracted by the darn internet..i noticed a new link on han's blog to this page, and yesterday i spent far longer than i should have reading all the archives..then last night i followed the link on there to this page (i initially just went to have a nose around this one, because the girl from the first site had embroiled herself in a bit of an online war with the guy from this site, and i thought i would just go and check out who he was, kos he sounded like a bit of a loser..turns out i really like it..), and the archives there are far far bigger..dammit. plus, axl has just posted a few really amusing blogs, most notably the song entitled 'frogs'..pure genius..

..all of these things have made me wish my blog wasn't quite so lame..i mean, it's ok and all, i guess, but it would be nice if i could draw and/or write amazing songs in the shower..
