Friday, Friday, getting' down on Friday

(and if you don't get that reference, you're a square, as we used to say).

Well, my appearance on the Guardian Higher Education Network online chat on surviving your first academic job was fun. Everyone else was very intellectual and have wonderful careers ahead of them. Me, I'll just make snarky comments online until someone escorts me off the premises.

Anyway, never mind work, it's the weekend. What's happening? Well, Stoke City is going to beat West Brom (away!), Ireland have a rugby match to win, and it's Emma's birthday. And I have an MA thesis to read for a friend.

I'll leave you with some highlights from that criminally overlooked comic masterpiece Garth Marenghi's Darkplace ('I was compact and muscular. Like corned beef').

One of my favourite shows, re-watch it a lot and my DVD always seems to be being shared about, often on my insistence!
