An alarming situation!

With only 46.5 hours to go before the deadline for handing my Masters project in, absolute, true and mathematical time continues to march on (with the certainty of clockwork, ironically enough). I've noted that it appears from its own nature to flow equably without relation to anything external.
The project is coming along, I'm just putting the finishing touches to it, so I'm not overly worried right now. I'm more worried about the fact that my alarm clock has run out of batteries, so I am left completely unable to measure the onward march of time which I alluded to in my opening remarks.
Anyone who has picked up a copy of my latest briefing, "Alex Guite: what's his current deal? (as of April 30th)" will probably be aware that my alarm clock batteries have been flat for several months without causing me undue alarm. In truth, I'm blogging about this because I spotted an opportunity for a pun. Sorry.
In fact the real hilarity occurred when the batteries were almost flat, but still just about able to turn the motor, but only very slowly. Imagine my surprise at waking up, thanks to my trusty bodyclock which I carry around with me everywhere, at what I thought was my usual wake up time only to be informed by my alarm clock that it was sometime in the early morning. Immediately the most plausible explanation came to mind: I was in a space-time warp, much like the ones you read about when you're 8 (well I did, anyway) in which people disappear only to reappear sometime later with their watch running late by exactly the amount of time they disappeared for. In retrospect, I'm not sure that book constituted a very reliable source. Except a reliable source of nonsense. Du dum! (That's a drumroll, although I have just realised I don't really know how to write a drumroll, mostly because I never thought I would sink to the low of signposting a 'joke' with a musical signature).
Anyway, I'm going to return to work. The graph shows the electroabsorption response of a yellow polymer light emitting diode which I've been working on. The 3D plot pretty much encompasses the last two terms worth of work. Personally, I think it looks sweet as.

Watch out for the Shaq Attack!

In other news, Gavin is just jealous. Of April O'Neal. Because she gets to hang around with the Turtles and DP them 24/7.

On a further note, good luck with masters, sexy pants. Bear in mind as you complete your long toil that, if I were a porn site, I would be Thuggs with Juggs.

I hate to admit I got turned on by the whole April/Turtles/DP thing - I must utilise PhotoShop in this respect... I still disrespect MA. Incase you weren't aware, Nelly - Grillz is the perfect track to while away the hours whilst riding on fourteens in the Punto. Let me see your grills. We need to do FL the way we do. While Hutch does Eating Marrow In Lower Yarmouth ;)
Oh, and P.S. Hand Puppets and Phrenology Heads to those who know what that means ;)
