don't know why, but presume it was to do with the communications shop.

Cow Parade's on in Edinburgh. It's actually a little disappointing from what I've seen that many of the cows are in fact grouped together. It makes the parade seem less random.

We musn't dwell... no, not today. We can't! not on Rex Manning Day!

the DVD shop in Buchanan Galleries closed this week and the staff put random signs in the window. I love this one for the Empire Records quotage. Damn the man! Save the Empire!

by lending me her video boxset (video!) of The Young Person's Guide to Becoming a Rock Star.

I'm pleased to say, it's still glorious after about nine years since seeing it first time round...
plus, spotting all the bits where its supposed to be part of "London" which are actually just marginally cleaner bits of Glasgow is much fun..

I got a suit today. I find it rather disappointing, as the majority of my wardrobe is made up of tiny skirts, skirts with strange layered flicky bits, glittery things and unfeasibly wide trousers. I need it for job interview (here's hoping i get more than one)... just feels weird.

this guy's called Simon. He's the only student I saw in St Andrews who was actually wearing the traditional red robes - they used to wear them for exams and such, and then got to change to black for graduation. Apparently lots more students there used to wear them just walking about but either it's been phased out, or, you know, it was just too damn hot!

and the beach

I really wanted to go paddling because it was such a nice day, but I had tights on and nothing to dry my feet with before going back on the bus so wouldn't have been the best of plans.
