Here are some things that I wanted to say:-

  • I am so stupid that I had been dieting for over a year before it even occurred to me that I could weigh things on the letter scales at work. As soon as I worked this out I developed a deep desire for a pretzel from Pret a Manger so I could weigh it (and eat it of course), but of course they don't have any. Bah.
  • The word of the day is analemma.
  • I want to go on holiday to Cornwall and visit the Eden project, but I don't think I'm going to be able to find anyone who wants to go on holiday with me. Why is this? And what should I do about it?
  • I slept better and feel OK today, but I still hate being at my desk.

Why is my brain so full of totally disjointed thoughts? I seem to remember a time when I could string a train of thought together...

We went to Eden last year. Our verdict is that Eden is worth visiting, but it will be even more worth visiting next year, when the plants have had another year to grow (repeat for a few years yet...)

It's also a 'half day' thing. Once you've sweated buckets in the (very impressive) sub-tropical zone, and gone 'coo, this is much cooler' in the (less impressive) Med zone... that's it. There is some interesting stuff outside, but not enough to keep you there for a day.

So find other stuff to do there, especially things that other people want to do.

I thought analemma sounded like a porn film version of a Jane Austen novel.

;) Is ok, I know I'm probably the only person who will be amused by that. But I don't care. HA!

~g~ You're wrong there...there's at least one other person who was amused by that...

Edinburgh College of Art is currently offering a jointly funded PhD with the Eden project people, I think the deadline for applications may have been last week though. Sadly I couldn't swap PhD places, damn.

I'd like to go there, I love Cornwall & I'm interested in Eden because the Sensory Trust is based there.
