and as the year speeds to a close i speed towards the present. at some moment which i cant pinpoint (saturday night? sunday morning?) i seem to have separated from the normal flow of events and, having been back to the time described in my previous post, am catching up with my own shadow. today there has been some kind of parables for paranoids type of scenario involving me and my study plan. maybe by the time i get back in the office i will be in the far future. i will tell you what it is like. i predict everyone will have blackberries.

for me, the geldof and peter lilly combo is the first big mistake of the cameroonie era. when i was in bed listening to the today program this morning and they were talking of it i was reminded of one of my favourite cartoons - "ones an evil genius, the others insane...". in the case of the cartoon, i have a contravertial theory about which is which.

funny evening tonight, seems like i am re-living some amalgam of my last school years and it is not as bad as you might think. i am doing some fairly easy but time consuming maths and listening to hefner while the snow falls outside my old bedroom window. tomorrow, my friend jamie (and maybe nicola) are coming round for dinner. in fact, if fortune smiles upon me i will be heading back to the metrop. thursday at some stage which should give me a chance to try out my new radio and do a bit of study on my own.

happy chirtmas everyone, i hope you all got what you wanted. i was treated to a DAB walkman which is quite attractive, if a little weak on reception downstairs. i have managed so far to eat and drink well within my limits, and i am cheered to see the fire burn in the grate. maybe tonight will see a repeat of last year's legendary "blue remebered hills" episode with my brother. we certainly have plenty of laphroig in. in all festive cheers, i wish you a fond farewell from kent.

hold on new york! it's blazing up in here! kapow! boom! almost going home time and i am typically over excited. to those of you who are reading so as to be aware of my every movement i say i was as happy as larry at dinner chez ostrom/sternberg (ostberg? sternom? if you say so....) fine wines, fine foods, fine friends. to those of you who read this blog to appreciate my way with words i say you should get involved with me professionally to experience a truely dry email. goodbye elephant, salam potato.

freja has been down for the last few days which has been delightful. we saw king kong yesterday, it is a real treat save for a few cgi minutes in the middle of the film which i presume were included so as to use the director's favourite graphics firm. today i went skating as early as i could and that too was a joy, though as my sage housemate suggested the skates were faulty. this afternoon i partook of a certain parambulation which i should like not to specify except to mention that i bid freja a fond farewell. oh yes, dear reader, ain't i volatile.

i started out on burgundy, but soon hit the harder stuff. on the way back from the club into which i could not cross, i found myself at a tesco and knew that all was lost.i think i was saved by someone with a kind heart and an empty wallet. if by some miracle this was a reader of my blog i should like to send my regards.

four wonderful parties later, it is monday night and i am only a tiny bit closer to finishing last week's study plan. whoever is my devoted media-land, non-housemate reader has the pleasure of being the 1000th since i installed statcounter on this blog. treat yourself.

just back from dinner with jenni and ciara, all good fun, although i think i have never been so neglected by waiters in all my life. i am very tired just now, and it has all been a little too hectic for me as my disgraced former ex-drunken post of friday night alerted you all, i am sure. details are many, but insights are few. i shant bore you any longer than i have to. more and better posts to follow. untill then, i remain your humble servent.
