Travelling

I would at this point mention that my bike has another pucture, but it's getting boring now so I won't…

Anyway, the other week (before my bike got the puncture) I got home – knackered as usual – and thought to myself, "I hate cycling to campus…" because it is a fair amount of effort. So I got on thinking of alternatives, the most obvious being walking; it wasn't long before I decided the 1/3 journey time definately made cycling the alternative to walking, not the other way round. Plus my feet always ache, and I really don't like walking…

So that was two ways down. There's no bus service to speak of between my house and campus, so next I thought: driving. This would work, apart from the fact I don't have a car. However, after being stuck in traffic a few times I'd no doubt end up thinking "I hate driving to campus…". The next logical step after that is not driving, but being driven. This, however, is still not perfect. First there's the fact that you really have to work to their schedule, and then there's the leeching…

It was about this point that I came to the conclusing that it's not that I dislike being at home (I don't – it's great) and it's not that I dislike being on campus (I don't – it's great), it's travelling between the two that I don't like. So the perfect form of transport would be some sort of teleportation device or a TARDIS. Unfortunately, due to several problems making frequent use of the word "fiction", this leaves my with either cycling or walking…

Look! Up in the sky! Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

Follow-up to Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

No, it's me (on the ground, I should point out) having to walk to and from campus because my bike's front tyre is punctured, and I can't be bothered to fix it just for a week.
The drawback of this is that I have to leave an hour before lectures, instead of 15 minutes.

Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries

I am not having a good day…

Too little sleep, to little work done, the key for my bike's lock snaps, £5 taxi home (I'm lazy), 45 minute walk back, can't get the blasted spare key in the lock, manage eventually (must be the cold, or a cheap lock) but discover front tyre is completely flat and bike is un–rideable, £5 taxi home (damned if I'm walking home at this time of night in the cold; I'm tired for one, and lazy for another), iminant 45 minute walk onto campus after a long lie in leading yet again to too little work, and I don't even have any alcohol…

Still, you've got to laugh:

grumble

It goes to show you never can tell

Follow-up to Sabotage from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

I never imagined that one time when I was coming on to campus I'd have to remember, among other things, to bring one of the pedals off my bicycle…

Sabotage

Follow-up to I know I'm breaking the law, but there's such a thing as courtesy… from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

On my way onto campus this morning, one of my bike's pedels fell off…
I suspect this may be the work of Rebel Pedestrians…
