Update (V, Poppers, Car, Thesis)

I haven’t blogged for a while (mainly due to manic thesis writing) and to be honest I haven’t got much to say. Having said that I did attend the V festival in Stafford where Radiohead where amazing as expected, We Are Scientists were brilliant (which was a little unexpected seen as they had managed to lose their guitars somehow), Bloc Party were good (but not as good as I had hoped), and Hard–Fi were crap. Groove Armada were great and we were right near to the front but some twat who was stoned off his face pushed forward and behaved like a fucking moron. Can anyone tell me the point of Poppers? Sniff this chemical (that resembles the alcohols in glue if I remember correctly) which will fuck up your nose and make you light headed an woozy just like you have the flu. Pillicks!
I have also bought a new car. To replace the one I bent slightly (well Ok wrote off). It’s a white Citroën Xsara. It’s slightly bigger than the Polo but not as big as a Golf… but yer, its French.
My thesis is due in on Monday, though I had to go and get the forms for submission from Registry my self as they are about a month and a half behind, so my supervisor doesn’t think I should worry too much about meeting the deadline. One question though… I’ve had one year to do this MSc and I’ve had to write a thesis that is half the length of a PhD thesis and I get absolutely no writing up time… Is that fair? I think not… though if you started a PhD this year your writing up time will be a maximum of 6 months due to new research council guidelines (and you will have to apply for it here).
I notice a fad a while ago that made Blog reading much quicker and somehow its faded out… so I want to start it up again… so…
The Stanbury: Not blogged for yonks, went V, bought car, writing thesis.
