Yey no more buses!

I finally decided to take my car and get it fixed this morning. I think I was given enough signs during the week. For example standing in the rain for half an hour for a bus yesterday, then while on the bus the last two days I kept seeing a van parked near sainsburys in tile hill. Now this seemingly innocent van had alternator repairs/replacements slapped all over it in big black and orange writing. Why it was parked randomly in tile hill is probably a good advertisement. It obviously worked though. So I started my car after a brief time of coughing and complaining (well it has been sitting in the same place for three weeks now and not moved once!) So after a trip back to Earlsdon they fit a new alternator for me in twenty minutes! Legends!

The newfound happiness of having my car back forced me to get a car wash, some petrol, oil and I even fixed the radio so that I can now pick up radio stations! (It has only been able to play CDs since I bought the car two years ago!) So all in all has been a good day. Sunshine too for a brief while!

So while its going well, I'm in the engineering dept attempting to do some project work! After little sleep in not sure how long I will last, but I guess all I can do is have a go!

  1. Hurrah! No more buses! Ali actually managed to talk me out of bed this morning so that I wouldn't miss a "really important talk for my research". When the bus finally came yesterday, there were actually 4 in a row on Hearsall Common! It's like Stagecoach in Leamington! Then when I wanted to get the bus back last night, I saw it leave 5 minutes early! Obviously the next one was late, leaving me with another 30min waiting period… It's fun nagging about it though! Try and come to some talks tomorrow – one's called "Stirring of vegetable soup"...

  2. Yeah the buses do suck! But I have a car now! Yey! So I can finally run over my laptop which seems to be crashing all the time! lol. Well done to Al for getting you up and on campus by 9! Thats impressive, I was up at 6:45 though and went from Canley to Earlsdon to campus to Canley to Earlsdon (via petrol station) back to campus by 11am! So been busy!

    I will try to come to some talks, but depends how relavent they are and how tired I am! hehe. If theres any on flow visualisation or instabilities of strafied shear flows let me know! Hehe.

    See you soon!
