Been a fairly quiet few days here, as I've been working on my research paper (computer creativity). But that's finished now, so I can move on to the other stacks of reading I've got piled up here :)

Random thing yesterday - I was in the chip shop, and the guy behind the counter said "Where do you come from?" I wasn't quite sure what he was getting at, so I said "Just around the corner". He then said "Are you Polish? English?", so I said I was English. This is similar to when Dorothy (dance teacher) was expecting my name to be Stephanovitch or something, rather than John. Admittedly, I don't know what a Polish accent sounds like, so it may well be that I coincidentally sound the same. As it stands, I don't think I really have a regional accent, as the posh accent I used to have has been changed by the various places I've lived, and the people I've spent time with.

I've just finished watching "X-Men" (on DVD), as a recap before I go off to see the sequel, which will probably be some time in the next couple of days. Other upcoming plans include a couple of revision lectures in college, dance class tomorrow evening, and a comic marketplace on Sunday. Oh, and speaking of comics, it's Free Comic Book Day on Saturday.

Finally, a followup to an older entry. Last summer, baratron suggested that I may have Asperger's Disorder, and recommended that I should seek professional help. After due consideration, I have decided not to - I'm going to handle this on my own, and I am prepared to deal with the consequences.
