Because I’m going to need all the time I can get.
You see, I woke up, and felt like challenging myself today. The first thing that came to mind was to continue copyediting that highly theoretical MPhil thesis on a subject that I know exactly bugger all about (that would be archaeology). But no, I felt like I needed something bigger. Something more daunting. Something that would take blood, sweat, and tears (even if they’re only metaphorical).
So I decided, today I am going to attempt to have fun.
I texted Roger, God of Weather, and asked him if he could return that favour he owed me and make today’s weather glorious. He was a little reluctant, but eventually gave in.
As luck would have it, my Shakespeare tutor is psychic, and when he was organising the course, he sensed that I would need a day free of any real obligations, so he decided to cancel today’s seminar.
And there seems to be something going around, as my geek friends also divined that today was the perfect day to go watch superheroes blow shit up.
Thanks to this, my day is going to be filled with the following:
- take shower
- buy breakfast and supplies
- ingest breakfast
- slather on vast amounts of sunscreen
- go to the castle (I can’t believe I live round the corner from a bloody castle, it’s fantastic)
- sit in the sun
- read books
- ingest shandy and possibly a croissant
- go to Amsterdam
- have food with friends
- go see Watchmen on a dizzyingly big screen
No, it won’t be easy. No, it won’t be fast. But I think that if I work hard and get a little lucky, I’ll be able to pull it off. Ladies and gentlemen, I think that I might actually enjoy myself today.
