No, seriously, I've been working on it over the last couple of days, in the hopes that I get it finished today (well, tonight), and thus have only a lab report to write up after Who tomorrow. And all was going quite well, I had some nice references, and I've only 350 words to go... and alas, I now cannot do any more for another two hours.
Because, ye olde internet quota for on-peak time got used up a few days ago. And the paper I want to get a quote from, so I can tie up all my themes together in a nice bow just happens to unavailable in a pdf file. And can only be available online. In scans from the ruddy journal. Which take ruddy hours to load on stupid dial-up.
So, I shall have to wait around until we go offpeak at 2am, and I get broadband back, so I can finish the damnable essay. At least I know what I want to write.
(Speaking of, is it wrong that my Media, Politics and Society used a reference from my CCM reader, and my CCM essay used a reference from my Media, Politics and Society reader? Because that amused me when I realised I'd done that).
Speaking of references, there's something terribly disturbing about a paper that in making a comparison between filmic and terrorist suspense techniques, talks about some Hitchcock movie in which apparently there's a scene in which there's a bomb, in a backpack, on a London Bus, which gets blown up.
You know, if the football overruns and there isn't Doctor Who to give me a brief distraction from this tomorrow morning, I shall be most unamused.
ETA: 2.50, and done. Editing can be tomorrow, now I shall go have sleepytime. And hopefully wake up to Doctor Who ready and waiting.
