I'd forgotten how good - productive, yes, but also enjoyable - sensible working patterns should be. Like doing things a bit in advance, and not staying up to finish them out of sheer bloody-mindedness, but getting up in the morning to do them. I'm now grateful I had that imposed on my in my first two terms, I probably wouldn't have done nearly as well in Mods otherwise. Just a shame it's taken me so long to rediscover it.

In other news - tea is good, especially when I first get up; Paris is still stupidly warm; I think I'm becoming allergic to trousers; I'm wondering which point I started using everything as a mental intellectual springboard to dive into all sorts of obscure references and arguments.

1) Law is so much easier when I've slept, eaten and am not feeling stinking ill. IN fact, unless really necessary, I just shouldn't even try law in that state.

2) The industrial revolution is to blame for everything. This theory is obviously still a work in progress, but in the last 24 hours I have observed the changes it caused to the economy, to transport, to architecture, to familial structure and family law, and to the French law of obligations, notably contrats/délits (contracts/torts). I shall continue to quietly observe this theory. It is quietly sitting in the corner, thinking no one has noticed that the industrial revolution is responsible for all changes in the last 200 years. I have a periscope and I shall continue to observe it in its blissful ignorance.

3) It has been so long since I've regularly worn trousers that I now find them uncomfortable. I shall have to continue wearing skirts and tights and pretty shoes. What a shame...

4) My handwriting has changed since I've been here. My "1"s now look very French and my cross bars on "7"s are finally justified so that they might be distinguished. Additionally, my "n"s and "m"s are acquiring extra loops. I'm not sure it makes my writing any more legible, but it's very exciting.

5) Boiled eggs are not only delicious but also good for you. I must not forget this again.
