I can't remember what my own bed feels like.

Translation: I've been living out of a backpack in York (again) since Thursday, and I'll be here till Tuesday morning, which is when I have my final Ph.D. supervision, after which I'm marching out of there, printing off the 1/4-in-duplicate that I haven't yet printed (3/4 of my thesis in duplicate is currently sitting in a box next to my backpack), and submitting. You have no idea how over this I am.

For anyone who ordered Lost Books off Amazon.com, please do leave a review when you've finished reading it! I refuse to review myself ;)

Oh, I know _exactly_ how over it you are. I can still hardly bring myself to reread my beast, even though I now have a oral scheduled for a couple of weeks...

You can't travel to and from York from Leeds? *peers at map* Nooo, I have no idea about distances in England, and i guess the efficiency of the transport system would play into it too?

Well, I can - but it's the difference between paying ten pounds every time I want a round trip ticket for a single day and TWELVE pounds for an open return ticket that's good for a month...

You see why I stay here if I have lots of things on days in succession.

...

That sounds alarming, but I just ran a conversion and an adult return Sydney-Newcastle is currently eleven pounds. I pay half of that, being a student, though.

Guess I'd better budget for "alarming rail prices" in any going-to-study-in-england plans...

Yeah, that's wise. York is alarming from anywhere on account of its being the most popular tourist town in the north of England, sadly...

If you do come here, we are totally going to hand out!

So close to done! HURRAH FOR YOU!!!!

I know. And I'm a bit too drunk right now to consider the import *headdesk*

I think that's the best way to cope with the end of thesisflail, dear. You can sober up to the reality of the thing later. *snug*

You have no idea how over this I am.
Oh, I have a pretty good idea. Do you have a viva date btw? I do hope it goes well. And congratulations on getting this far!
