What is happening in the Snail Shell? I've got stacks of work to do, most of which would take me minutes to finish but seems to be taking hours. Sure, laziness plays a big part. But it's not responsible for all of it. It can't be. (Migod, what if it is? What if I've turned into a great big lazy blob? Zut alors!)
I'm supposed to be writing notes for a lecture that I'm giving to the Honours students tomorrow arvo. For some reason, I'm completely frozen. Is it down to those fourteen weeks of leave? Have I forgotten how to play the game?
And why am I writing this instead of that lecture?
