Brain has too much time to think right now. But rather than thinking important, useful and intelligent (preferably dissertation-related) thoughts, brain has decided to short circuit and spend its days in a state of nervous paranoia convinced that nobody likes it and that the best thing it can do is to sit its owner on a bench and force her to stare inanely at a tree for several hours. Brain is getting itself in a state over nothing. Brain is referring to itself in the third person, which is also a little worrying. Brain must try harder to act normally, or alternatively, stop at home and let its owner go and have a nice weekend in London without it.
The dogz, the pigz, the su doku, the running and I suppose the dissertation (since that's what I'm supposed to be doing with my 'spare' time), all have competition from some funny little green-haired chappies, who have been hurling themselves off cliffs, hacking through mountain ranges, digging tunnels, scaling walls, building bridges and going splat on a computer somewhere near me.
I want to be a lemming. Seems like such a thought-free, blissful existence. I think I'd rather like to be one of the wall-climbing ones; failing that a parachutist. I wouldn't want to be a blocker cos that's just crap and you don't get to squeal 'yippeeeee!' at the end.
