... here's a very brief hello.

Hello, lj, have been neglecting you, as well as my website (still under construction) and various friends. Been really busy, what with moving house, having my mum and aunt to visit, going to the Fellowship Festival, starting a new job and getting visited by my sister Tuemi and her friend. I was going to update my lj yesterday, but the laundry needed doing and the weather was very nice and I made use of our new garden.

Anyway, I'll fill in the details bit by bit, but for the moment I'd better get on with some work.

*waves and signs off*

A huge big welcome then to my sister, [livejournal.com profile] tuemi (formerly known as Ta'Nik).

Nachdem ich jetzt zumindest eine deutschsprachige Leserin habe schreibe ich auch ab und zu mal was auf deutsch.

Had a very long weekend -- Society T seminar, more seagull rescue (with a happy end, thank goodness), Shrek 2 (very funny).

Tidied out the loft today: lots of cardboard boxes...

Longer update when I feel more human again. ;-)

Well, I'm back.

Has been a long weekend and I am still very tired. I should be getting on with some work, but have instead been wasting time starting to catch up with my flist.

More later, when I have assuaged the God of Conscientiousness.

Welcome!

To [livejournal.com profile] alitophilus -- it's nice that you have joined us. :-)

I was going to do some marking... Even did some today.

But what with mucking about with website designs and the stick-piccies for SBI -- when we finally get it sorted -- I didn't really do much useful stuff this weekend. And unfortunately my back hurts cos of too much sitting.

Oh well... I guess I needed not to do anything too productive for a bit...

Eventually, I might even catch up with my reading of lj and updating of diary and lj. But not tonight.

P.S. Got some emithering on "Bad Idea" done. :-)

At least I'll give this one a try for a little while...

It's also her birthday today!

All the best!

[livejournal.com profile] the_marquis is just reading lj on our connection and so I am composing this off-line.

Yesterday was a strange day: I did some marking in the morning then had a meeting with a student about her dissertation and potential independent studies project. She’s thinking of putting together a presentation about some of the issues facing people that are long-term carers for loved ones with chronic illnesses – sounds really good! This girl really has improved so much since last year. Teacherly warm glow…

After that I did some marking (yuck!) of first year study skills portfolios. It was quite depressing because most of them didn’t do what asked for, despite repeated explanations. The final two I marked were pretty good, however. But I guess I’d better start on Tuesday with another workshop in using the Harvard Referencing system.

Had lunch with The Marquis, Ceejay, Marxist and Fierce and we had a good laugh about Lala, which Fierce sidetracked into a discussion of words for ‘many of’ – like skein of geese, flock of sheep, swarm of bees… and issues of Lala?

Did some more marking and started to prepare Monday’s session on Depression and psychological disorders during adolescence (cheerful, eh? I so know why I don’t like developmental psychology!), but didn’t get very far before my hair appointment.

I decided not to do anything too drastic just yet, but had the bottom layer taken out, which helps my hair look fuller. I also had a fringe cut. Not to sure about it, but it’s okay I guess, and certainly looks a little more purposeful than the annoying straggly bits I’d been having hitherto. We shall see what it looks like once I have washed it all again.

Back to work after that and back to the lecture for Monday. I managed to get the handout prepared and did a fair bit of the reading I’d meant to do – the session should be okay. But it did take me until about 19.30 until all was done. Because I knew I was going to be late, I called the Marquis and asked him to come and bring me some dinner, so that we could go to the cinema after I’d finished the lecture prep, which he kindly agreed to do.

So it was that we went to see The Last Samurai, which I enjoyed very much. It was a well-paced, well-told story, quite moving in parts. I was particularly pleased with hearing all the Japanese, and amazed at how much of it I recognised from my very brief recent bit of Japanese exchanges on the Soapy Place with [livejournal.com profile] pellegrina. I wouldn’t go as far as saying I understood it, but it had a very definite ring of familiarity in some cases. The other thing I thoroughly enjoyed was the visual execution of the Japanese village – much of it reminded me of what has become familiar about feudal Japan from reading Usagi Yojimbo. There was one scene that made me think of the Neko Ninja – I turned to the Marquis and he whispered ‘Neko Ninja’ before I could open my mouth! Anyway. I enjoyed the film, even if some of it was very sad indeed.

Emither update: still on ‘Connected’. Enjoying it very much. Wonder what’s going to happen next.
