i hereby swear that i am never ever going to use a train unless i absolutely have to!
i went shopping in nottingham yesterday, and sometime between the time i arrived there and the time i wanted to leave, some gits vandalised the midland mainline at some point so emergency engineering works had to be undertaken. that meant no trains to anywhere back the way i wanted to go!
so there i was, faced with the choice to either spend extra money & go home (green, green lincolnshire), or to somehow find a very clever way of getting back here…
in the end, i had to wait for a bus to loughborough & stay with good friend dan 'the hat man'...
then today, i fully expected the trains to be running again. very very naive and stupid of me. i managed to get a train as far as leicester before i had to wait around for ages for a bus to nuneaton, then bus to coventry, then bus to campus…
and here i am. just alive enough to tell the tale..
so basically, the moral of this harrowing tale is not to use trains.

who the smeg was running round the hallowed corridors of benny's this morning at 6.30am????
i mean really! thats far too early for anyone to be getting up… but far too late for returning from a tuesday night out.
(tuesday, for those of you who are unfamiliar with the doctrines of sheep dogma, was god's second intended day of rest…they just never got round to putting it into the bible)
names of suspects on a postcard to the usual address…

slight variation on the "what?!" theme…
bit of a rant about paradise lost…
to cut a long story short, why?! oh why?! subject suffering english students to the torture of paradise lost?
nice title, but is it really necessary to devote 623 pages (in my edition) to a story that takes 3 pages in the bible??
more than that, why make it so dense that it takes a lifetime to read??
bring back the aeneid, odyssey + iliad!
