Revenge of the Plot Bunnies

Day's Eye

No automatic alt text available.

It has been just over four weeks since my hand in and I am well on the way to recovery.  I am walking a lot better and I believe the bacterial problem has left.  I am feeling far better and more human than I have done in months. What has surprised me is my lack of wanting to do anything that resembles reading or writing.  Not even a crossword puzzle or an acrostic. It is almost like I am done trying to read and do close text analysing - I don't even want to read chic lit, such is my level of listlessness when it comes to the written word.  I have had several round robin emails reminding us that we can do the MA, but as I looked like Edvard Munch's 'The Scream' in my final days there, I think the answer is no.

The ScreamCollapse )

The plus side is that my dissertation lecturer wrote that my dissertation was 'tightly-focused and intelligently-conceived'; there were a few things I should have brushed up on and I thoroughly agree with him (you can see quite a few things with distance and hindsight) but he ended the assessment by saying it was a 'forcefully-argued and independent dissertation project.' Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!! Made my day!!!! He especially liked my use of Bentham's panopticon, which was a gem I found back a couple of years ago.

Right now, I am getting ready for Mazey Day tomorrow, my birthday is the weekend after that, my wedding anniversary the weekend after that and finally, my final results and degree award.  So, I am unapologetically going to celebrate for the next few weekends :-D

The Autistic Gardener is Back!



Over the moon about this - I had to go on Channel 4 catch up as I missed Saturday's episode.  I am a little disappointed that he hasn't got his fellow AS chums with him, but instead his usual team of NT workers (which is ok, but I liked individual ideas.

Anyway, it's on Channel 4 on Saturdays in the UK :-D

Blazing Today



I'm sorry, I know - us Brits can't cut it, when the temperature is north of 24c (75f).  I think it's the lack of air and the humidity.
