Love heart count: love.

I’ll quickly first say that episode three of our latest series of game show I host, Accumulate!, is now available at . We had fun making it, hopefully someone, somewhere, enjoys watching it.

It’s come to my attention that it was Valentine’s day recently. I’ve been having a craving for love hearts as a result. For some reason, I really like the pink and white ones the most. However, I’ve been to six shops, and NONE of them stocked any love hearts!!! Astonishing! The local Sainsburys, the shop at the end of my road, the cafe at work, the shop on campus at uni and a Tescos local all had no love hearts – I had to go to the large Sainsbury’s in town and even they didn’t have the normal packets but special packets of small tubes (each with seven sweets). Very disappointing. I may have to investigate further to see if I can get a regular supplier. I hope they don’t hook me in, then raise the price and force my addicted self to sell my belongings to get more. I could end up doing that with love hearts if I’m not careful.

Thesis update! First draft written (except conclusions), second draft started (2/6 edited), third draft is waving at me cheerily in the distance. It’s currently 118 pages and about 30,000 words. I’ve been funded to study up until the end of March, so I’m now starting to look for jobs that begin in April. If anyone out there is impressed with Accumulate!, please send me an email and I’d like to get involved in some telly production! Oh, the vain hope that someone will read this and *actually* do that. The chances are better than winning the lottery… which is a shame, as I’ve never won the lottery. Could you buy us a ticket, love (heart)?
