It's easier this way

I could have blogged from either work or home yesterday using a computer. I didn't choose to do it at work because of ethical and privacy issues - anyone could read what I type. I didn't do it from home because I spent the entire evening worrying about how to pay my bills next month. I was bluesy enough that I didn't 'talk'/'reciprocate' with Vinokur.

Well, at least until we learned some grammar theory from the internet and refreshed the concepts of the obliquity of the ecliptic, equinoxes, solstices, precession of the equinoxes etc. Astronomy is kick-ass and it felt really good to be doing things that I last did in College as a teenager.

Today morning, on my way to work, on the bus that I ride to reach work, I feel more relaxed to talk about the big issues that float in capitals in my vitreous. At least I don't feel wrong about doing something unethical. And unlike my PC at home, the phone doesn't crash!

So the big questions are - What do I do? Borrow? More?

Phone Blogging is awesome, no? So very convenient and private too!

When do your academic qualifications start paying, already!

For some reason the equinoxes and solstices entirely elude the Australians, who deem autumn to begin on April 1 instead of March 21

@ Masalai: Foster is implicated, I presume, in that phenomenon!

Curiously, Foster is largely unknown in Australia. The only place I've ever been offered it was in a bar in Bombay, in fact.
