trains and apocalypses

I would just like to report that the 07:42 train from Kingston to Waterloo has left on time three days in a row. I am very afraid. Specifically, I fear one of the following consequences: (1) this is a new record, (2) it is the first sign of the apocalypse, (3) every 07:42 for the next three weeks will be hideously delayed. Your bets please on which of these is most likely.

Of course, I'm actually supposed to get the 07:35 if I'm to get to school on time in the morning - the 07:42 is the train I get if I miss that one. Except today I managed to miss the 07:42 as well because it actually left on time! I had to get the 07:57 which then sat at Raynes Park for 6 minutes and crawled to Wimbledon... For anyone who says I should get up earlier, I should point out that I was up at the horrendous hour of 6am, getting work sorted out for my dear Year 10s :P

Haven't said much about school (or anything else) recently - still v busy. I'm going to set up another journal for my school stuff, so it's semi-anonymous and separated from my personal stuff. Will let people know where that is in a friends-only entry, but if you're not on my friends list and want to read it, let me know and I'll email you the link separately.
