the problem with not blogging very often, I was thinking today, is that when you do blog you better make it interesting, otherwise you might come across as a very boring person. If you blog everyday then it doesnt matter so much because some things will be interesting some will be boring but its just something you do on a daily basis so it doesnt all have to be fascinating. However, if you only blog every now and again it implies you are waiitng until you have something interesting to write about and if what you end up writing isnt actually interesting (not unlike this post really), it implies you dont actually have anything interesting happening in your life or any interesting ideas to write about. Now of course it goes without saying (and yet here I am saying it) that this is clearly not the case for me - I'm just too busy being all interesting to spend much time on the blog.
uh huh.

I had been in real mood today, you know the sort of day when you feel like writing a blog item about all your pet grievances (today in particular: someone you dont know putting you on an email list you didnt know about and then sending you piles of useless email in particular relating to Deirdre's (who you also dont know) health issues and then trying to make you into the annoying one when you ask to be removed from the email list; a whole heap of mail man related gripes). Anyway, just as I was grumpily pondering why students walk so slow in front of me and never in a straight line and why seminars have to be held all the way on the other side of campus, I saw a guy wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with 'Wiggedy Wiggedy Whack' in fluoro pink and green Fresh Prince style graffiti font and I cheered up no end. brilliant
