Welcome back. Miss me?
Rhetorical question, don’t worry. I’m yawning as I type this, absolutely knackered from doing absolutely nothing all day. At least I’m multitasking. You’d be surprised at the amount of effort there is involved in a yawn. I was planning on producing some impressive statistic on the number of muscles used in the average yawn/pandiculation; or even better, the amount of energy used in Joules. But that requires Googling (which is a word), and therefore effort, and, well…*yawn*. Apparently even reading about yawning can make you yawn. I bet some of you are yawning now. But I digest.
You may be wondering which mysterious, powerful force of nature has managed to coax me out of my blogging sabbatical and write this post. Well, if you’ve walked past a stationery shop lately you’ll know. As if every parent and child didn’t already know, and weren’t already depressed about it, it’s “Back to school!” time. Although, I’ve never been sure if the parents read those signs as the kids do. Maybe they just see “You made it! Respite time!”.
Though, me going back to school is perhaps more significant than for many (aside from the obvious reason that it’s me; that goes without saying). It was 15 months, or thereabouts, since I last was in school, and so I think it will come as more of a shock to the system (both mine and theirs ;)). I’m not sure how I feel about it really. I have an induction day tomorrow, which I did last year (so, Mr. le Sauvage and co., I will soon find out if you do merely recycle your “welcome back” talks); and then wham-bam-merci-danke-thank-a-you-ma’am, back into the timetable I go (much as I’d like to, I can’t claim credit for that – look up Flight of the Conchords).
Other than that, not much else to say really. Flickr’s been updated, I’ve been hanging around with a couple of musicians at band practice (well, one musician – bassists don’t count :P), saw some friends in England, relatives in Guernsey.
Oh, and I have one question for you that’s been bugging me for the last few days. Where has the summer gone?
