Things That Are Interesting When You Are Trying To Study

-Watching cricket
-Washing dishes
-Getting the mail
-Chewing gum
-Staring at your own feet
-Checking the word count on your draft
-Suggesting PhD topics to your friends so they will join you in misery (e.g. "Photoshop Phun" and "Whose Tatts?")
-Pulling the wings off flies so they can't fly away and leave you lonely

Interestingly enough, I believe those are much the same things that are interesting when one has been smoking marijuana. Hmmm... I wonder if you could do a PhD on that?

What about checking your blog comments?

NG - maybe YOU could do one, but the whole point is that I am trying to palm off PhD topics to other people. What about a study on the decline of the word "whomsoever" in contemporary parlance? or an investigation into different methods of drying clothes in developing countries?
JB - good point. Make more comments please.

Well. Gai who is Frank (as opposed to Franc who is Gay) wants to do a PhD as well... on luxury goods. Have you got a pun title for her?
