Yawn. I’m sleepy. I’ve been maintaining odd hours for the past week or so, and scholasticism has little to do with the late hours. Having a laptop and an internet connection is hardly conducive to any sort of academic endeavour, as I now discover. For all those advocates of the internet and information revolution- I am, apologetically, an aberration. I do nothing ‘useful’ on the internet. I download movies(eep) and music (eep) and watch ‘em till I absolutely MUST go sleep.

Which is not to say I have no work. Lined up, in the distance, is my photocopy of Stiglitz and his Globalisation and its Discontents. In the bag hanging from the door handle, lies Arundhati Roy’s Beast. (Now that is voluntary reading. The problem is, most of my waking hours are spent either doing nothing or in doing nothing.) I have two other books to finish by Monday, and a presentation to prepare. I should really get to work.

(What price procrastination.)

You really enjoy making inflammatory comments, don’t you? Maybe someday I will respond.

I agree with you, even I’ve never done anything ‘useful’ on the internet.
