The reading on Foucault has destroyed my higher thinking functions.

The strain of trying to think of something to write, either here or for the Boar, has destroyed my mid range thinking functions.

My lower thinking functions haven’t been speaking to me since I started an MA rather than get an nice easy McJob, preferably not at McDonalds itself (they were hanging in for HMV).

MMy hip is playing up for no reason other than it wants attention.

Football has destroyed all my legs muscles, and the ones in my right arm and shoulder…

...and going on Adoptions to Score has cost me my hearing. Again. Why must I be so conscientious about wearing earplugs at nights where it’s my sort of music, but throw me to the shit music and I go in without any chance at all.

I suspect Score is also, perversly, responsible for my sore throat.

So how come I feel really on top of everything? S’all good. I think it has much to do with not being a pigeon.

I love how stupid the world is.

Good night.

  1. How is that a pigeon? It’s so blatantly a coot. Not only that, but this also happened once before, almost exactly a year ago in the same park!

    Now there’s a pelican eating a pigeon (or coot):

    Yep, yum yum, chew chew chew. Incidentally, what is that in the foreground if not a PIGEON!!?

    More evidence that it was a coot it was eating, look they’re all around it and it’s got a nasty look in its eye. Brave woman though.

    OK, call me crazy and obsessed if you like but I think it’s about time the BBC TOLD US THE TRUTH!!

  2. Could it have anything to do with The Pigeon Conspiracy or Pigeon Resistance ?

  4. I think it’s a pigeon, I have no birdwatching powers but I think coots are a little darker and hace a red patch on the top of their head. This knowledge comes entirely from the fact I think coot is the one of the best animal names in nature! Whatever it is, and the photos you’ve got seem to suggest it’s eaten coots too, I want it to try and eat a person. Imagine that. It would be the funniest thing ever!

  5. No, it’s moor hens that have a red patch. Coots have a white patch. I have been told though that it might be a feral pigeon.

    Damn, thought I’d uncovered another conspiracy!

    I like the way it’s just calmly sitting there as if nothing was wrong.

  6. Definitely a pigeon.

    [insert sympathetic words here]

    Hope you have some thinking functions back soon!

    I’ve had a deep suspicion of pelicans since encountering them in Oz. Nothing in these pictures has done anything to change this.

  8. Bloody hell! Foucault? Do they make you read that rot for post-grad, too?

    Hope you’re doing alright otherwise.

  9. Foucault never ends. And never gets any more comprehensible. Gah!

    I’m good, hope you are too. How’s the real world?
