Extenuating Circumstances Granted

Because of my husband's ongoing treatment, I have been granted 14 extra days for extenuating circumstances and will be able to get the whole of my coursework out.  THAT will take the strain off a bit - thank you college and staff. 2,482 words done.  Now I have a lot of hacking and rewriting to do, on what will be my 4th draft.  Get the whole of this done by the weekend and I will be one happy bunny.

Back to study :-)

OK - have got hold of more useful quotes, mostly from Lyotard and some from Baudrillard - even good old Nietzche and McLuhan get a look-in.  However, Derrida does my head in - there is no academic way of saying that. When you start to see the words 'centre', 'structure', 'destructure' repeated again and again - in fact multiple times within a paragraph, you are in danger of losing yourself down the rabbit hole that is Postmodernism.  Pass me the sick bag, Alice (with apologies to Sir John Junor).
