Frustration of work – Monday

Again back in the engineering dept. Been here for almost 2 and a half hours now. Not bad going for a monday morning methinks. So project up to 10,542 words now. Only another 1458 ish to go. But when thats over I need to write a summary and to go through the whole thing and format it all properly so all the images and graphs are in the correct places and all referenced properly. (could take a day in itself!) Referencing… That's another part that could take a long time!

I guess this entry is a kind of break from working for the meantime. Checking emails every now and then / hour / 30mins / every 15minutes or so is another (brief) break from work. I think I would go insane if I worked constantly until 6pm though. Attempting to stick around until then to pick up Vikki and go play some badminton with friends. There's not much point in going home really. (although I have a seriously painful back at the moment! So should be an interesting time). RAG quiz after too. If only they asked questions on the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability, then I'd be sorted. It seems that this project has squeezed out all the other random information in my head, leaving little room for much else.

Well, back to work for me. Procrastination over for the morning. Lunch soon….(although having only found enough money in my car for a yoghurt… yum..)

Two more random thoughts: I've just noticed that I have had my laptop plugged in for a couple of hours…but the switch off.. No wonder it was so dim!! Rubbish!

Number two: Does anyone else find it hard to read my blog or is that just Ali?

  1. that background image is a bit distracting from the writing…

  2. Surely though you can read the top of the screen when scrolling down…. But I can see your point.

    I find it really hard to read. The thing in the background gets in the way… and it moves with the text when I scroll- is it not meant to do that?

    Did you know I read at all? I am a nosey girl, I'm afraid, so I do :-p

    Hope you get all your work done… WiM this weekend… woohoo! I am tres excited, or I will be when I finish sorting the Bond Groups out :-)

    See you friday

  7. The minor problem with the background (this one as well) is psychological for me -> I expect the picture to move along with the text, but it stays where it is! (is that the same or the opposite to what Hayley says?) It makes me focus on the picture rather than the text when scrolling. This picture's cool tho! Viva la procrastinacion!
