I was sneezing all the way through a seminar just now
also, you know when you’re in that groggy first phase of being ill and your brain is quite suggestible and it only needs to be slightly nudged in order to get stuck in a feedback loop of itself ? Well one of the things mentioning in the seminar was the Greepeace social network/forum thing they have called Greenwire …and for getting on half an hour now I’ve had the 12 bar loop of the chorus of Pixies ‘Hangwire’ going round and round in my head
I thought I wouldn’t have an early start today, after finishing my 7am call with China yesterday saying that I wouldn’t be needed. Foolishly I thought I’d check in anyway just in case, and there’d been an issue and I needed to step in. Bah. So I haven’t had breakfast yet.
Bat for Lashes was amazing last night though, and I’m sure I’ll be a lot more chipper once I’ve eaten something.
Had to do this recently, to first and final year students studying the field I work in. Absolute sea of blank faces, particularly from the first years (which is fair, given they’d just started a four year course). Brilliant stuff.
