02.04.2003 – Wednesday 2 April
- • I’m on the train, but only just. I don’t know why I am always late. No matter what time I get up, I am late. I had to skip breakfast and run to make the train, and then by the time I get to the train I’m ready to collapse. It takes me the whole journey to stop feeling sick, then once I get there, as often as not I’ve got to run to get the ferry to get to my lectures on time. The trains arrive just in time, so it’s just possible to make a lecture on time but only if the ferry is waiting and I run. This means by the time I get to my lecture and sit down, the sweat breaks out all over and I’m boiling hot. Very romantic I’m sure.
- • I watched the next part in my James Bond fix, “You Only Live Twice”. I don’t think I’ve seen this one before. They’re good movies, although the acting isn’t very realistic in places. Lots of the dialogue is out of synch, I’m not sure if that’s how it is, or if that’s an artefact that was introduced when they transferred the movie to DVD.
