Excuses, excuses

This is my life at the moment, except I’m not cursed and/or blessed enough to be a PhD candidate yet. I can’t believe I’m crossing my fingers to get in; except I can, because I really don’t know what else I’d do with my life.

It’s not as bad as all that. I just like to be a martyr for the cause. For the cause of what, I don’t quite know, but I’m in Arts and Humanities and my job involves asking the questions, not answering them. (Teehee.)

Basically, this horrifying and awe-inspiring spiral of doom means that I’m a little short on time and inspiration for outfits. I’m terribly sorry. Mea culpa, mea culpa. I tend to spend a great deal of my time wearing very very boring little ensembles so that I can procrastin- work, I mean, work comfortably. I love my outfits and most of them are terribly comfortable but pyjamas are really the most comfortable things in the universe, bar none. Unfortunately, they are also one of the more boring things to photograph, and so I have no outfit photos.

I think, on this graph, I’m at the first stage… more or less. I’m already very bad at brushing my hair and I’ve never had contacts in my life, because I’m terrified of gouging my eye out with my fingernail. (I know. It’s not going to happen. But I stand by the possibility.)

I solemnly swear, legal contracts and pinky promises and all manner of binding oaths, that I will never ever get to the ‘brush teeth?’ stage. Or the ‘socks with sandals’ moment. I am very fond of my teeth (and I am one of those few people who like going to the dentist) and socks with sandals is too many levels of horrendous.

Socks with high heels, however… may wear that tomorrow and will try my hardest to get photos up.

Until then, here are a few of my favourite procrastination-y links to get you through your Mondays:

Okay, back to work for me, I’m afraid. Sigh. 😛

I think I’m particularly fond of the ‘Education’ panel. Really terribly refreshing after being exposed to so much liberal humanist universalising of ‘human experience’ at uni.

It’ll all be over soon, though; last class next week! Hurrah! Have to watch Velvet Goldmine in time for the seminar, but I’m sure I’ll get around to it.
