I joined facebook just to see what it's all about. I suspect it may actually be lowering my IQ.
It's an oddly fragmented/fragmenting experience, and yet strangely compelling.
Anyway, on a completely couldn't-be-more-unrelated note, Martin talked to the tenant who is currently living in our new house and she says that kangaroos come and visit the front garden some mornings (right up to the veranda), kookaburras and rosellas feed out of her hands, an echidna was recently rampaging through her flower beds... Doesn't it sound idyllic? Who will I be when I live there? I can't wait to see the house again, we haven't been back to St Andrews since we bought the house. Martin and I both tried to draw a floorplan and completely disagreed on where the bathroom is and where the dining table goes. But we both agree there is one of each. So that's comforting. It feels very surreal and distant, we asked for a 90 day settlement, which is 3 months and a quarter of a year, so I guess that's why it feels like a long time away. I think settlement is October 10.
Okay back to reading Chekhov for the class I'm tutoring... (must not check facebook must not check facebook)
