Just popped over to feed the fish with some yellow specks of virtual fishfood. It's still satisfying to feed them and watch them swim over, haha, simple pleasures, I must be more overworked than I thought. Can't believe how tiring it is juggling teaching plus an admin job, haven't been this knackered since I submitted my thesis and that's not an experience I care to repeat. I've had withdrawal symptoms from not watching TV detective programmes, or any TV actually. Writing lectures for a new place takes SO much time, you think you've got enough material but it's not enough when you start reworking it for a different audience. Oh well. And I'm wearing one contact lens which is really annoying, though you get used to it after a while and it's the best of a load of crap choices anyway. I scratched my cornea so have to leave the lens out till it heals. You can get by with imperfect vision when you have to. I do like flaming eyeball graphics but am not mad about those glasses, they're a bit Elton John circa early '70s in his less sophisticated days. They'll do for the blog though. A question on wiki-somethingorother asked 'what do flaming eyeballs mean?' (a perfectly valid thing to ask) and the answer was 'you need medical help.' Not a very creative response for anyone wanting to investigate hot rod art. Eyes do feel a bit flamey when you've had scans with lasers or whatever they use, your vision goes all pink for a day or so. Quite weird. Despite that, I am looking forward to having some eye operations soon.
I must finish this lecture... I'll make a cup of tea and get on with it.
