2 – Do shopping
3 – "We're gonna need another Timmy" is from Dinosaurs
4 – Remember to buy more post-its
All voted except for one post – Science faculty rep. Sent off an e-mail saying that I am actually an undergraduate, attending this university, and doing a maths degree. Got a form e-mail back saying "go to union north and they'll sort it out". Would have been nice if I'd got this e-mail yesterday, soon after I sent my e-mail, or indeed this morning. Not after I come home on Friday afternoon.
Anyway, despite the large number of abstentions [if no-one tells who to vote for, obvioulsy that post is of so little importance to people that it doesn't matter who gets it] all done.
Congratulations to anyone who told me how to vote – you have cheated the system by getting two votes instead of one!
I am not, and never have been, a fast thinker. By my estimation and definition of thought, I have on average 1 thought every 9 seconds. Thus, by popular "statistics", 150% of my thinking is about sex. While I do have a one-track mind [more on this later], I'm thinking this calculation is a little off.
I think I'd better define what I mean by thought. I think in pictures. One thought=one mental image popping into my head. As one picture is worth 1000 words, the 8¾ second gap is used to try to transfer this picture into word form if it is deemed necessary. This isn't a thought. It's just thinking.
Anyway, back to my one-track mind. Now, most people think that having a one-track mind means that you're focussed purely on one thing. The designers of my track had a different philosophy: If we've only got one track, we better make sure that it goes everywhere. My only regret is that they did not decide to join up the stops in a logical order.
