I currently subscribe to pictures 3 & 8 - well, that is if I am so inclined to work. Bit skittish today, not really settled down to anything much, except trying to find out what constitutes Menippean and work from there. I realised that a lot of Pratchett comes under that category, so i feel quite at home in this sub-genre.
Had an interesting chat with a friend, who asked me whether I was considering doing the MA. I cited age/health/distance/price and replied in the negative, but what I am thinking is that I need a year off and honour my contribution to the household bills. I will be asking to be put on placement to get experience and see how I do on the job market. Then I will see how I feel. Actually it will be nice not living as a penniless student in essentially a potless household.
I am going to start with a grid for the essay - 2,500 words and how I will discuss the finer points. Promise to do better tomorrow.
