First Seminar

At 2:00pm today, I’ll join the other MA in Science Fiction Studies students for our first seminar. I’m prepped for talking about Hugo Gernsback’s Ralph 124C 41+. I think that the seminar will go very well!

On Friday, I chipped the cap on one of my incisors. I hope that the cap will last a little bit longer, but I should be able to get it repaired under Britain’s NHS. I’ll look into what I’ll need to do to obtain a NHS card.

The other day, while I was walking around Liverpool, I noticed that when a group of cars are sitting at a Red light, the traffic light will change to a Red/Yellow, to indicate that they are about to get a Green. If we had that in America, I’m afraid that there would be carnage on a massive scale!
