One too many expletives..

Awkward return. Hardly the triumphant, buoyant feeling I had envisaged. But -- shrugs -- there you go.

After a rather horrible summer and the loss, my University work had been left in tatters. I was kindly granted an extension due to my circumstances and on Friday afternoon I finished.

The feeling is of, well, I don't know. But it hasn't been the rollicking great celebration part of my mind was demanding it be.

Anyway, to get myself back into the swing of things is this glorious Pop Cultureddd neck of the woods, here is a track that really cheered me up when I was on me knees begging for literature on wealth.

Elbow - Mexican Standoff (Spanish Version) [via YouSendIt for 7 days]

Clapping to it is fun.

Anyone any ideas for how I can celebrate? And, how I can stop swearing so much?

If the link doesn't work please let me know. I've got a feeling. YouSendIt was being gay this morning.

Glad to report the download/song works fine.

YouSendIt is behaving. And not gay.

To celebrate, and I would say this, a cosy hot chocolate and planning for your MA and PhD...


Or failing that, just going out and having fun. Lots of handclaps. And laughs. And tequila.

YouSendIt is fairly gay. Maybe it just likes to be difficult for me.

I think cosy hot chocolate is the plan of action for tonight and a blank sheet of paper for dissertation ideas.

Seeing as I am currently nursing a hangover which I am hoping will repreive before my three hours of Marx this afternoon.

MA and PhD? Slow down. Apparently I have to make an appointment to talk to someone about the 'C' word. And I'm not happy.

(Careers. Argh!)

One way you could celebrate is by adding a fellow sociologist to your blogroll, lolz.

I can only apologise for not having done it sooner.

It was due to an identity crisis that Pop Cultureddd was going through (still is).
