The weather. I did some errands around noon/one and was comfortable.
As it grew dark last night, blue lightning bugs came out -- a charming and fitting addition to the Midsummer production.
Complaint of the Day:
Slow moving pedestrians. Who take up the whole width of the sidewalk.
I remember learning in elementary school to stay to the right. It means traffic can flow in two directions. It also means people can pass you. While i know little about British driving protocols, i know that the escalators in the London Underground ask you to stand to the right.
I had to go to Borders to purchase V's Adam Bede (Oxford World's Classics edition -- i previously tried Waterstones, Blackwells including the secondhand department, and the Oxford University Press Bookshop).
Lots of colleges say "closed to visitors." I suspect if i told the Porters i'm studying at Trinity they would let me in anyway. I feel weird, though.
I dislike when the cloth on the bottom of the inside of a shoe begins to detach. (What's that part of the shoe called, anyway?) Would that cease to happen if i bought better shoes than Payless? (This is not a rhetorical question.)
I must have been more hungry than i thought because i just about inhaled lunch. And now i find i'm still hungry. Will i get any work done today?
I wish this were a more balanced list.
[edit: Michele just e-mailed me and i'm working 3 more hours the week i get back. And despite the bads outweighing the goods on this particular list, i'm in a good mood, so really, there's no problem.]
edit the second: Yes, there was indeed another positive item i had forgotten. The bus dropped me off on High Street at 1am and i made it back to Trinity without incident. Wahoo!
