Well yes, I am rubbish. I just haven't been arsed to go a-netting recently. Thus, not only have I not updated in 27 years, but I also haven't read your happenings in recent times. Well I'm afraid nothings changing at the moment; I just can't bear to sit at a computer and read things for any more than an incredibly short period of time. It's some sort of lethargy. I just feel a bit blah towards computer life at the moment.

For a short summary of what's going on at the moment. Mother's not doing too well. She's having more heart problems and tomorrow they're going to stop her heart in an apparently routine operation type jobby. I fail to see how stopping someone's heart can be described as routine. Anyways, fingers crossed she'll be OK. She's had heart problems since before I was born (probably didn't help her much in my parasitic days in the womb), so hopefully this'll just turn out to be a little bump in that road and nothing major.

Other than that, I've got my very own funny German who's on ERASMUS and doing a project in our lab. He's great and lab life is finally coming together somewhat socially. I'm a bit sad that he'll be leaving in just a month though, he's hilarious. I've also started going to the Uni film society and may become more involved with that. It just involves showing films so it's pretty easy, though I'm trying to encourage them to visit the upcoming Latin American and Chinese cinema festivals which will be visiting Manchester.

And obviously there's the normal shite that goes on in my life to do with being a scientist and a student in the hip and happening city of Manchester. Despite most things actually going pretty well in life, I'm still being my old mood swingy self sometimes happy sometimes shite. At most times I've no reason to be especially one way or the other, but I invariably am. Anyways, that's a quick summary of what's going on. I'm sorry I haven't been keeping up with your stuff. Don't think I don't care; I do. I just feel so... blah everytime I sit at the computer.

Hope all is well

if i were religious, i would say that your mother is in my prayers, but since i'm not, your mother is in the equivalent of whatever prayers are for hedonists. i'm sure she will be just fine. it is nice to see an update from you! miss you!

"if i were religious, i would say that your mother is in my prayers, but since i'm not, your mother is in the equivalent of whatever prayers are for hedonists." Exactly what I was thinking!

Your mum's in my thoughts. I hope everything goes ok today.

I was actually wondering how you were yesterday. I was in London, reading bits of The God Delusion in Waterstones and hooting. Made me think "I wonder how old cheeesuschrist is". Anyway, as I said, I hope you and your mum are doing alright.

Ah London, good days. The God Delusion is truly the shizniz. I do love that Dawkins chappy.

Ta very much for the thoughts. She seems to be alright at the moment. Not tip tappedy top, but as good as can be when you have a dicky ticker and certainly better than she was.

I think you deserve some *hugs* today, Paul. Your mum will be fine, but I will keep her in my thoughts for sure.
Film society seems like one of the only worthwhile extra curriculars there is.

The fact that you're feeling so blah with computer life is quite a good thing; blahness toward computer life tends to bode well for real (non-computer) life. Heh.

I'm sorry to hear about your mom. I hope she recovers swiftly and fully.

And I hope your moodswings go away! I hate those.
