    I'm in the home straight of my second year with just two essays to finish this week. The first essay is a critical commentary of my own work, I wrote a short play about a mental woman being visited my apparitions of her dead family. That essay should be easy to write, I'll just throw in a few references to Harold Pinter because I know my lecturer thinks Pinter is the wasp's tits.

    The second essay, however, is a 2,500 word behemoth about Nietzsche and how he felt about tragedy. Even though my module is about Shakespeare I have taken the brave move of talking about Euripides and Sophocles because I know there will be more books about these two chaps left in the library than any on Bill Shakespeare. I have a feeling this essay will be made up with quotes, huge chunks of quotey goodness.

    If you use some of the ideas I gave you last night and try not to panic, you'll do just fine.
    This pump dispenses gasoline, a fossil fuel. People who believe fossils are not real should put something else in their tanks.

    I'm not panicking, I'm just not looking forward to all the work the second essay is going to entail. I'm going to have to, like, go to the library and stuff.

    I'm fascinated by Nietzsche, because of the references in Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda, because the Nietzschians are the self-proclaimed genetically engineered rulers of the galaxy, and their gangs have cool names, like Drago-Katsoff and Kodiac, and they have bony wrist spikes and are good at hand to hand fighting, etc.

    When I say fascinated, I haven't actually done any research on the real Nietzsche, but I always thought that one day I would, because of this.

    I'd quite like to read your essay when you've finished it. Good luck

    I think I'd rather contract aids than read your essay when you're finished - but good luck with it, obviously.

    Sounds like something a lecturer would like a student to do, btw, using a slightly different approach to talk about the same thing. After marking vast swathes of Shakespeare based appraisals, it might be a refreshing change for him.
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    Just remember to put when you have said a funny and when you are referencing something which makes you unhappy. Also use when you think Nietzsche was talking nonsense.

    That, with a few pictures and maybe a graph and you will be fine.
