March 01, 2006
Ok, so bored of doing work for the moment so will procrastinate with a bit of blogging…
I have not only got a huge third year project looming over everything, but we have a lovely 5000 word report to do for the end of term too. So that measn a trip to the library! (Shocking I know, being an engineer and all!) After a trip there and a cold walk back to my laptop with a heavy book all about high-performance racing engine design I now have to have a break.
Also another exciting point to add the the week, my car has decided to have a little battery light turn on all the time, and a high pitched noise now comes out of it when driven. Now after looking at the fan belt (nope, not slipping or broken) it must be either the alternator or the battery itself. So at the moment it seems I'm just running on the remains of whatever the battery has left. Which makes it interesting, as i don't think its a good idea to use any electronics if possible so that I may still have some lights if I need to drive at night. The problem stopping me from fixing it is that alternators are pretty expensive, and it's the end of an expensive term, so I may have to find a way to steal some money from somewhere.
At least I don't really need my car till next weekend. (althought getting the bus maybe a cold and depressing act! Sorry to all those who take the bus, but I do like my car!)
There is also an
insane crazy busy exciting weekend ahead. It's "Raise the Roof". The Rev spring concert. Which is going to be good! Sold many tickets already, but there will be many on the door too. So come along saturday at 7pm in Methodist central hall, coventry. I will be there from 9am to help set up lighting and sound stuff, so although no doubt will be shattered it's still going to be amazing! lol.
I best get to working again, or now as Rich is here I may be able to finally finish the programmes for the concert if we are going to get them printed by saturday.
(And the sun is kind of shining on my screen which makes it very hard to type!)
