Where I am now

Slack blogging or what? Sorry, mea culpa! Right now I'm finishing some work which has to be done in 8 hours time and I'm busier than a one-armed paperhanger. Reason for post (and this won't mean anything outside those parts of the English speaking world which retain some REAL culture):

Aggers and Boycs
Hoggard to Langer
Summer will never be the same again
A real sporting event - possibly the biggest in the developed world

I hope you are all behaving nicely, recent events in my world include a couple of sessions talking to students studying Animal Management (?), more of the New Media stuff in London, getting a contract on a new job (couple of days a week), starting to study a level 1 (UG) course, starting to teach on the October starts on two undergrad course and generally enjoying life!

Whoops again!

Look, I'm sorry I haven't been around but one thing bashes into another and I'm "time poor" (love that term because it's so naff!) Quick skim over the news. Saddam has been found guilty just in time for the mid-term elections in the States. I'd guess that Bush asked for the Second Coming but Rumsfeld, Cheney and Halliburton couldn't get it arranged in time. It also seems that everyone who has ever dissed gay unions is being popped out of the closet so things are tricky in the US. Here life goes on and the coronation of Brown looks to be going well, the leadership candidates having parted like the Red Sea. Of course there is one fly in the ointment and it's good to see that Hilary is carrying on the family tradition of being both obnoxious and right at inopportune moments. As yet Blair hasn't commented on the Saddam verdict, Beckett managed to support the outcome without mentioning the sentence while Hague managed to stop cheering long enough to support hanging and avoided suggesting that the death penalty might be a better solution to the UK's problems than ASBOs. Menzies Campbell actually made most sense when he questioned the value of making Saddam a martyr but who listens to the Liberals? I'm going to be absent again as I am working a 19 day fortnight - don't ask, it's just that it's often difficult to say "no" when people offer contracts.
