June 12, 2006
So it's 6am and I'm still awake. For some reason last night I just couldn't sleep. It may be that it's hot in my room with 2 computers on all the time or it may be that I only woke up at 1pm yesterday.
So at 5 this morning I decided I would go and do my laundry so I sorted it into tumble dryable and non–tumble dryable. I also played the "let's find the purple stains on the shirt I wore to Skool Days" game with a bottle of Vanish. Just as I was about to leave, the 5:30 news came on the radio and at the end the forecast was for a hotter day than yesterday, but with the possibility of thundery showers in the midlands. And just as I left, what happened, it started raining. Although it was quite pleasant I thaught "typical British summer, 2 sunny days and a thunderstorm.
On getting to the laundry, what is the 1st thing that I hear. "Beep Beep Beep". Damn it, the change machine's empty and I have no change. So I've just spen half an hour wandering around the laundrette area seeing what times things open. Rootes reception opens at 8 and the banks open at 9:30 it it's at least another 2 hours before I can get any change.
Oh well. I did however notice a couple of things that interested or dismayed me.
1) This is a sign, outside the union south entrance, about the final fling menu. What happened to proof–reading? Is this some sort of new many–in–one vegetable or are they only serving out of season vegetables?
2) Why do we need this sign? Don't the union have better things to spend money on?
Enough ranting. Now I just have to find something to occupy me for the next 2 hours until I can get some change.
— Edit @ 7:30 am
Ok, so that was just rain. Every so often it's like someone's taking a photo. There is a very bright flash from a single point just above Kirby Lodge and then about 2 mins later there is the rumble. Fun
