lloll4: ice lolly shaped like Mickey Mouse (me 2011)
So, I've chosen my classes (maritime law and banking law, because I'm really weirdly becoming very curious about what d'you mean, banking law because from reports about recent and ongoing banking crisis, one is forced to conclude that those laws haven't really been of much use). It means having to have classes on Saturdays, which majorly sucks, but it's only for one term and I will deal.

Having a leisurely time mostly knitting and reading. Went to a garden show on Thursday with my mum, which was awesome, and not just because we bought orchids! Ok, because we bought orchids, because previous years I wanted to but didn't. And now I have.

The weather widget on my computer shows a big yellow sun but I'm currently looking out at torrential rain. Ah, technology.

Am doing essays and wondering what the hell is an entrenching provision. (Don't worry; that's what I'm in the library to do.)

Reason #99 for hating the imaginary paper's lack of archival presence on the web: Wikipedia cannot quote you. ETA: Neither can CJR.

Nor can posts - blog posts like this one and other internet witterings. Which sort of pisses me off because I would like to talk about stuff from the imaginary paper but I can't because it'd be unsubstantiated.

O well. this bit's about the book reviews )

Terry Prachett's new book is out!

Wandered by the secondhand bookstore today and nearly picked up a copy of The Shipping News. (It was just $1!) Thankfully didn't, as I've already got a copy I'd forgotten about. I suck at remembering whether I already own a book, or had simply borrowed it too often from the library. This is the reason I have four copies of Gawain and the Green Knight. Still, this would not be a problem if I actually have shelfspace. *mourns* Neil Gaiman, who the imaginery paper says will be in town soon, has an awesome library. (Try fitting that in a flat.)

I'd bookblog, but I've been reading non-book stuff lately. Also, this was about the time my Yubina yarn arrived (with lots of cool stamps on the package!), so I've been spending time on Ravelry trying to find a pattern I really like. I'd make this Butterfly dress, except I don't think I bought enough yarn. And that despite how lovely it looks (ignore the ugly pink underdress), I'd feel weird wearing something like that.
