Far Out (Stoner Like).

I just realised, just, like, this moment*, realised, that in a week, in a week in a half, two weeks tops, I could be holding cheap spiral bound copies of my thesis in my hands. I could be giving them to some person. Any person. A bum. I don't particularly care, because I could be giving them it, I could be leaving them with my thesis... Yes, yes, I was just reading the Thesis Submission Guide. Yes. And it hit me. The end. The painkillers. The Guide. They're combining. It'll be the fucking end of this thing. The End. And I realised, I realised--

That I don't know what people do on a Friday night when they haven't got a thesis.

Tell me it involves sex. Please.




* Actually, about ten minutes ago. I lie, see. Quite often. It's part of my charm.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to not make that entry boring.

Or else, I shall mock you.


What? Dad says I should do what I'm good at.

Hah! I *weighed* mine

(And it was suprisingly inadequate!)

(Although I did print it doublesided)

Doublesided? They let you SAVE paper?

Thank god they didn't make us do that. It was all I could do to get the postgrad room printers to print the pages in order...

I was in an environmental department - they were probably obliged ;-)

Also, with all mistakes I made I don't know if I really saved paper :-P

(there were colour pages too - printing it out was more complicated than writing the damn thing!)

You could probably beat him to death with it as well. Whether that involves sex is up to you.

Man, it sounds you're about to have a breakdown or in the process of breaking down. Cor! I betcha the area that you breaks down in will be declared a contaminated zone in the scale not seen since Chernobyl and the Boxing Day Sale of 1999.

Anyway, Godspeed, dude.

Hello. danjite told me he thought I would like your journal. I read some, and liked it, so I added you as a friend. Hello.

The intro 'twixt you and johnnyeponymous is because he- Chris Garcia- is editor of The Drink Tank and is himself one of the (Uh, three?) shining lights of Norte Americano fandom.

Well written, well spoken, hugely enthusiastic, cool and has been going to serious hardcore shows since he was four.
