And the university computer system failed to register me so I couldn't do the exam, so I've gone home and hid under a blanket feeling pretty wretched instead :( Not the best of weeks.

Oh no! Very annoying  :(

Are you able to re-register, or sit it at another time?

Yeah, second sitting is in a month so it's not world-ending. Just really really miserable at a time when I desperately need to not have so much stuff hanging over my head.  :(

I'm just knackered now. Still got this exam yet to come, got to start marking final projects and also get on with writing next semester's course which I have no idea about. And I broke a plate today, and I still don't have a working washing machine.

I'm trying to write a bit today, my writing group is doing an anthology again and I'm trying to do a short story for that but I'm feeling pretty uninspired.

A logical premise my brain assembled today:

Axiom: Friendship is magic
Axiom 2: Any sufficiently advanced science is indistinguishable from magic
Conclusion: Any sufficiently advanced science is indistinguishable from friendship.

I have a new washing machine! It is capable of washing clothes! Huzzah!*


EDIT: I realise I should really say that I presume it's capable of washing clothes, based on its now proven ability to wash other similar fabric items. I have however only done bedsheets so far so who knows, it may object to clothes in unexpected ways when I try that.

Yay! Happy laundry processing!

Meanwhile, I have found a new time-sink, in the shape of a Thomas Cook European railway timetable from 1989. I am finding it all too fascinating to compare the rail networks and services of 31 years ago with the current ones. A great deal has changed, mostly for the better - rail services have become faster and more frequent in many parts of Europe. Even the timetable book itself now shows more routes, more trains and more stations.
