A Weighty Tome

  • Words written excluding biblio and appendices: exactly 18,000
  • Pages: 83
  • Articles, prepositions, conjunctions and other 'unnecessary' grammatical features removed to get down to word limit: All of them
  • Hours slept in past week: feels like 0
  • Hours I plan to sleep tomorrow: 25
  • Number of phone calls to my mum today: 6
  • Tears shed: 5 million
  • Likelihood the printer will break / the university will suffer a power failure / lazer lizard won't be able to bind it before 3 o'clock tomorrow: oh very likely indeed

Am knackered
but it's done.

    Well done! The binding looks to be of admirable sturdiness: expensive?

    Have you slept? Will you make a final blog entry before you skip town to go on to whatever's next (if that's not more Warwick)?

  2. Tis amazing the binding services that Lazer Lizard (campus printing place) offers these days – there's soft-bound, spiral-bound, and ye-olde-weighty-tome-bound. Impressive stuff.

    Have slept loads and need to sleep more,as am feeling quite exhausted and not really sure what to do with self post-dissertation.

    Probably will keep t'blog going by becoming WGA member, but whether I will have time to write anything for it, particularly something vaguely coherent, remains to be seen…
