Synchronicity I

The only relevance for the title of this post is because I have been listening to the best of The Police CDs in the last few days, and have "discovered" Synchronicity I, a song that I don't think I was previously aware of. I don't remember it from when I saw them last year, but it's a song that has really taken a hold of me.

If you've never heard it, check it out, I'm sure that there will be somewhere on Youtube that you could listen to it.

(not to be confused with the also pretty darn good Synchronicity II)

I've almost finished my corrections for my thesis - I think! I'll be sending them off to my examiners by Tuesday afternoon, and if all goes well that will be that (short of some formalities such as getting it printed and bound etc). Quite exciting, and also a bit scary.

Haven't been able to focus on 101/1001 much, apart from reading a few more books - "From Russia With Love," "The Execution Channel" and "Interworld" - and thinking a bit about some travel possibilities. Am trying to sort out a trip to Japan at the moment for September, but if that falls through I'm thinking of heading west and visiting a few states in the US... More on this story as we have it!

Oh, now I knew there was something I was forgetting! One of my things is to send 101 postcards: if anyone of you lovely readers wants to receive a postcard from Liverpool then drop me an email at "Nathan (dot) Blah (at) googlemail (dot) com" replacing dots and ats with the regular symbols. I saw some really great postcards when I was wandering around FACT last Saturday, and it would be nice to share them with the world.

Anyway, that's all for now, time for me to get on with some proofreading, this weekend's fun task...

Synchronicity, synchronicity, synchronicity...
