What British accent is this – from the BBC. I got 7 out of 10, my only excuse being I’ve been here for 5 years. What can the Kiwis get? (Or the yanks?)

Everyone says nice things about Tupelo, so can I make an Official Decision that that’s where we’ll be this eve? If the weather remains crap, I shall be there from 5.15, otherwise I’m popping home first, and will be there at 6.

If you include aikido, trapeze and climbing, training this morning makes eight training sessions in six days. Yay for not spending my days reading textbooks. I’m getting quite tired. This includes three aikido sessions in the last twenty-five hours. I don’t think this is unreasonable. That’s less than 20% of my life right now. This …

My compliments on your attack this morning. Wrapping a newspaper around my face and suddenly blinding me while I was trying to cycle down Adelaide Road in heavy traffic was quite inspired. I’m impressed by your precision and effectiveness. You also get bonus brownie points for using recycled material. However, humanity’s not beaten yet. You …

And science proves that tea is the best thing since salted Jesus scratchings. And while we’re on the science side of things, for the last two hundred years, there’s been frankly nothing better for kitchen knives than carbon steel. Now there is, phase-toughened zirconia ceramic. I’ve had a Kyocera ceramic for seven years and it …

Dear Kickboxers with whom we share the dojo with, Early morning training is a great thing, but when you, being all buff and that, hit the punchbag, it feels as if the whole building is shaking. You are seriously harshing my mellow. Kindly chill the f.ck out or, this being aikido, we shall be forced …

You know tunes are good when you don’t want to stop listening for the ten seconds that it’ll take for you to pause winamp, take off headphones, get up, step to printer, get the doc I’m working on, and return to headphones. I don’t even like hard house.

…yeah right. So today was final exam after three and a half years of hoping economics would get better. It didn’t but its done now. Thus there’s this huge gaping void in my life, currently filled with exuberance (and Polly’s booze), but the question becomes – what next? Currently, the options run: sex, drugs and …

Okay, Mojo is small, cold and concretey, but not too bad. Where should people investigate tonight? I’m going to Expressoholic, which sucks, but only briefly coz I’m going to the movies to watch fur-clad men swinging big swords, but its okay, coz its literature.

Hurrah! or not…

Got my last ever assignment back, with a big 92 on the front! “Gosh”, you say, “you’re so clever!” Yeah, sadly, they didn’t say what 92 is out of. 92%? 92 out of a thousand? Who knows? These are economists, and they can give you very, very precise answers, that are utterly meaningless. Also, Dannevirke …
