Just been watching last week’s Desperate Housewives on the TiVo, so that I can watch tonight’s episode ‘live’. It’s good fun, that programme 🙂 I liked the part with the bone.
Sooooo, I’ve been so busy doing website updates that I haven’t really posted anything of interest. Well, don’t hold your breath. I’m working at physics all morning and maths all afternoon (except today, when I hit educational walls of pure bronze and failed to get my head round anything of import) and have five gajillion things to get done. Like post my damn camera off to be repaired. And send back a hard drive. And stop my sister’s computer popping up silly messages on startup. And clean my car windscreen. And figure out if I need / can afford a car, come to that. And reply to various emails that have been sitting there for way too long…I picture people all over the world sitting at their desks hitting ‘Send and Receive’ in desperate hope…And find somewhere to take my A-Levels. And plan something for this weekend to stop me going nuts in the house. I could be doing all these things right now, but I’m not. I’m typing away and thinking about articles I can add to the wiki.
Ho hum. Physics today consisted of Simple Harmonic Motion, which confused me. Didn’t help that my textbook had one of the fundamental equations printed wrongly. Then it was trig identities in Pure 2. I have no problem with this normally, but when you’re trying to solve something like 2cos5xsin3x = 0 for 0 < x < 360 I never ever manage to find all of the possible solutions. I’ll get a couple easily, but it’s the 5x and 3x squashing the graph that winds me up. I always seem to halve the wrong value, or something. Still, hopefully I’ll get the hang of it eventually.
I bought How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb over iTunes the other day. Good stuff, I like it. I’ve also been listening to Keane, Elton John and the Scissor Sisters. Elton says: “I’m just rocking myself on this porch swing in Tupelo”, and most jolly it is too.
What am I going to do when I grow up? I should probably know by now.
[thinks a bit]
Nope, still don’t know. Oooh, I could be a trapeze artist. There’s still time.
