My tumble drier is annoying. Why do things come out wetter than they go in? Can anyone explain that, surely tumble driers are there to sort-of dry things? I do not understand. There are lots of things I don’t understand, like why Becci is so cold. But she is. It’s almost time to go out. I’m quite looking forward to the party, but my costume isn’t exactly great…or very halloween-y. Hmm.


And I thought the world hated me

28 October 2008

Call me paranoid, but I thought the world hated me. First my year abroad plans seemed to fall through because my only French ERASMUS option seemed to be Martinique. I don’t want to go to Martinique, even if it does have Martini in its name :(

Then no-one seemed to turn up to the French Soc circle (but they did and it was great!)

Then I couldn’t even buy toner for my printer because so many places will only send your first order to your card address – ie my home home address. This is sad. I have however since bought toner which is coming to Waterloo House and not going home! So I am again happy.

I have also managed to fix the stupid internet with OpenDNS happy happy happy!

I was also co-opted to the Pride exec Sunday, so now I’m secretary to two societies. Aren’t I fab?!

It was. Worry was prevelant. Problem upon further inspection, however, solved. Jab today.

Erm, washing is supposed to be easy, right?

The lovely Aggie McKenzie said on the one show the other day that you should wash your bed linen at 60°c to kill yeuchy stuff. Got to be worth a try. Our washer has a 59 minute program at 60°c, which I dutifully used, but I think I managed to catch the Cold button, so somehow it took aaaages and used cold water. Not impressed.

Better luck next week, methinks.


Freak hailstorm

3 October 2008

There are hailstones on my windowsill. It is Thursday and more to the point it’s OCTOBER. Why dare I ask are they there?

My timetable sucks ass, I have to be on campus for an hour or two every day. This is not good, and today I have a 4 hour gap between seminars. I went to see Leo then came home and punched the forest of paper M. Amieux gave us this morning. You’d think people would know how to duplex on a photocopier, I have over 100 pages here.

Come see me at Freshers on monday. I’ll be in the TES tent to the right of the stage along with the other language socs. I’m not sure where they’ve put French Speaking, somewhere hopefully a long way away so they can’t steal our members and leer. Well, they may be lovely, but I have yet to find out. I might pay them a visit :p

A la fac!
