Just finished watching Serenity. Damn good film. Watch it, that's all I'm going to say on the matter.
This week is not going to be nice. Final year full project report is due in on Thursday so I'm bascially going to be sitting here writing until then. I guess I should be working now rather than watching films, but I've written enough today and can't log into anything in the CSC building so there is no hope of any work for a few days at least.
Last week on the other hand was brilliant. Wednesday I went down to London for a PhD interview at Imperial. It turned out to be not much of an interview and I just ended up wandering around the group talking to the various academics but that's fine with me since they're paying the train fair. Afterwards I had an hour or so to kill before meeting up with a friend so I took the underground to Westminster and looked at the Houses of Parliment, Big Ben and the London Eye like a proper lost tourist. After that we came back up here, met up with someone else and went to the Real Ale festival.
Thursday I did a little work, dropped the first friend off at the station and met up with a few more to go back to Real Ale on that night. This was great fun, slightly less cider to work my way through but singing along to the great over-patriotic songs played by the Brass Band was excellent. We all had plenty to drink though and there was a little rolling around in the snow afterwards.
Friday morning had a lecture but then returned and cooked a huge fry-up for everyone that was still here. Unfortunately this means I have no decent food as I used all the nice bacon and sausages and the last of the spuds. I do have the really really nice Stilton left though….mmmm…cheese.
Generally, a very hectic week but that's quite good occasionally. After having all these people staying on my floor and around all day and a lot going on, its a bit too quiet in the flat now but that's probably best since I've got so much work todo. Yea… work…
Also, I have no money. I really really have no money now. £100 over my overdraft limit. oops.
