Time has no wings - not just now anyway

Oooooooh.... painful. Ex-student popped round for a chat. Was here for an interview for the "Institutional Development" Office. Fund raising, that is. She's real pleasant and everything but I am not today. So painful to have to act civil and interested when all you want to do is crawl under the desk and nap.

She is just about finished doing her MA in Gender Studies at CU and for a while has been very interested in getting involved with the "women's movement". I am glad to know that she is finally coming to her senses. Gender Studies is about as academic as Art Attack . The programme at CU, in particular, is soaked to near disintegration in wishy washy half baked big words postmodernism. It's a load of bollocks. In that regard Art Attack's contribution to humanity is much greater, ob-vi-ous-ly.

My ability to feign interest when sleepy and hungry was deteriorating big time. The dead air, the over-zealous nodding, the same question asked for the third time... Hey I was serial yawning uncontrollably also. I mean, man, it's pathetic. She is pathetic. If she could see what a load of bollocks Gender Studies is, she certainly is well-qualified to spot my eagerness for time to fly fly fly whilst in her company.

To give her the benefit of the doubt, she was probably thinking the same.
