Look here! It’s a post!

Oh hello, it’s me. Sorry about that silence. I had a scary essay to write, as well as plenty of work. Christmas really is a massive load of shite isn’t it? Anyway, I don’t think my essay was very good. I stayed up until almost 4am on Sunday night writing the essay. Then once I […]

George IV Bridge

Now, not only do I have to avoid the cash machines, bus shelters, scaffolding, slow pedestrians and bicyclists on George IV Bridge. I also have to avoid madmen with traffic cones! Gah!

No time to stand in a queue

Have I been writing too much about queues? The good folks at Standinaqueue must think I’m encroaching on their territory too much, for which I apologise. But if there were to be a blog that was the opposite of Standinaqueue — a blog dedicated to avoiding queues at all costs — I think they should […]

Done a queue two

I wrote about the queue I stood in the day before Standinaqueue Day, and I somehow got sidetracked into talking about weirdos in trains. I have only just started on that, stay tuned for another train weirdo post to come one day. But yesterday — the day after Standinaqueue Day — I did manage to […]

I sorely wanted to stand in a queue (or is that standinaqueue?) and send the results to him. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the […]

High-security sandwiches

I heard the other day that the latest political bandwagon that students are jumping on is a boycott of Marks & Spencer because they sell oranges from Israel or something. I’m not the boycotting type. Actually that’s not true. I boycott Starbucks, but that’s only because the last time I went there my coffee came […]

Cancelled

Wow, is Haymarket station crumbling or something? I went to the station at just before 9am to find out that there was a signal failure at Haymarket which meant that no trains were going into or coming out of Edinburgh. Apparently the trains are only starting up again around about now (after 11am). Too late […]

Weather and walking

Wow, it’s all been even more hectic than I had expected. I’ve got lots that I could write about, but I don’t really have the energy, so I’m reduced to writing a banal post about the weather and my feet. You have been warned. Firstly, the wind yesterday was fantastic! I was eating my lunch […]
