Well, I just don’t know where to start.

I have been home from work for half an hour and all I have achieved is catching up with two episodes of the Archers and supping on my delicious pumpkin spice latte (which makes me feel very wizard like when I ask for it). I was about to listen to Woman’s Hour but I think I need something more up beat to get me going. So I now have Space’s Greatest Hits blearing out and it will shortly be followed by Scissor Sister.

I gotta list as long as my arm of things to do, study, watch and read. Aargghh. I think what we need is an extra day, squeeze it in between Wednesday and Thursday. A chance to breath and catch up. Now why can’t the politicians add that to their manifestos – it would get my vote!

BTW, quite a few of my friends have commented that they are disappointed by Kerry’s performance in the debates. Seeing him as the lesser of two evils and the new broom for a regime change. Whilst I am becoming even more enamoured by him and feel his controlled stance is to appeal to moderate Republicans. I was blown away by his answer on the abortion question. Not difficult to understand, just not a sound bite. Well, life is one big grey area that shouldn’t be boil down to a phrase that can be emblazoned on a tee shirt.

In an attempt to get ‘healthy’ this morning I opted for a skinny hazelnut latte instead of the full fat version but this seemed to confuse them and they topped it off with whipped cream and caramel.  I think they were worried I wasn’t getting enough calories!

I am stuck in Chaucer hell at the moment – the final part of my poetry module in my English Lit course has me reading The Miller’s Tale in the original middle English. The only way I can describe it is a dyslexic on acid!!!! So, I ended up procrastinating my day away yesterday and came up with this about my ipod (it’s not v good but at least short):

Shiny, white and fly,
You really caught my eye,
Glistening in the shop,
Just had to break and stop.

Lets hope I am more productive today and don’t start on an ode to TIVO!!!!!!
