Well that 2010 done. It’s been a fairly good year all things considered; take last years resolutions as evidence. Get a PhD, even if I have to do the sort of things that would make a Liverpudlian whore blush: Task complete And thankfully without gaining the glazed, dead-eyed stare of a sink-estate teenage girl in […]

The following took place between 9:15 and 9:32 this morning. Names have been omitted to protect the innocent “Jesus Christ” I exclaimed, unable to keep the words from bursting forth.

Well it’s been a fine Christmas break so far. I say break, but as I only work the most generous definition of “part time” it’s not like I’ve technically had a lot of time off. Anyway. Presents were good, food and alcohol flowed as if the Gods themselves were in attendance and as yet there […]
