While I was lost

I would have told you about the Wild Party, and how amazing it was.
I would have told you about the meeting with my supervisor I ended up not having.
I would have told you about the trip to Edinburgh.
I would have told you about the ceilidh I danced there, and about how I taught someone else how to dance it, even though I didn't really understand myself.
I would have told you about how I nearly cried in Fopp because of the incredibly low priced CDs, and how I managed to restrain myself and only buy 3.
I would have told you about the amazing pants I got that have bajan green monkeys on them.
I would have told you about the back to back lectures I've just attended. A new Warwick personal record.
I would have told you about my supervisees not turning up because they forgot to tell me they had a deadline.
I would have told you about the book [Bubbles, drops, and particles (Clift, 1978 (2005))] that finally arrived and that will boost my chances upon completing my PhD.
I would have told you about the DAT tape with hours of bubble viewing that arrived as well.

But I couldn't. I was lost. The power of resetting one password. The power of the internet and the time not being able to use it seems to be correlated with the number of meaningful events in your life.

Now I could tell you that I've just attended a lecture that started at 10am. Ten A M. And it's not even for credit.
Now I could tell you that I'm going to read my book on bubbles and learn a lot and enjoy it.
Now I could tell you that later today, I'll visit the Learning Grid and watch hours of bubble footage and enjoy it.

But I've got work to do.

    And now you're just toying with us by not telling us anything?

    HOW RUDE!!

    Only kidding love, go and enjoy the bubbles… and the monkey pants, which I'm slightly disturbed by the description of them as a meaningful event in your life…

    Love ya

  2. Fopp is expensive. I'm sorry, but every time i've found something worh buying in there i've walked away because of the price.

  3. It depends on your frame of reference. I'm lazy hence a tenner for Eels or Alicia Keys is a bargain to me if compared to Virgin or HMV or Tesco prices. A fiver for older stuff or The Atari's or even 3 Scottish pounds for Jamiroquai to me sounds like they're giving them away!

  4. But try and get anything good like a Steve Vai CD and you're looking at about £17

    Fopp is incredibly biased towards indie or mainstream punk/rock, if you're interested in any other genre you get screwed over.
