Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
I have been virtually netless for the past couple of weeks, so pity me. I’ve also developed a nasty habit of naturally typing the word ‘soon’ as ‘sooooooooooon’.
Driving up to Gateshead last weekend, I passed a sign for Consett, which obviously filled me with a warm LBSC glow.
I actually quite liked Oliver Letwin’s speech, if only because he was the only high-ranking politician from any of the parties this year (and in recent memory) to address Conference without simply reading from an autocue. Good for him. And his hand movements were hilarious.
It’s nice to know that Jack doesn’t have to get up early, considering that my lectures start at 9am most days, and 8am on some bad days. Having said that, this term should be very enjoyable, since it is popularly known as the ‘naughty’ term, alluding to the fact that we spend this term studying the ‘naughty bits’. So far, we’ve really been focusing on the breast. And I’ve seen someone with four nipples. How many people can say that? Apparently, it’s very common to have superfluous nipples.
I thought I was reasonably well informed on matters of male and female genitalia, but from the little we’ve done, I’ve already learned more than I expected. At the very least, it’ll be a fun term to revise in groups…
I meet my babies on Monday night, so that’ll be exciting. And the NTL man cometh on Wednesday to install t’interweb.
Till then, I bid you farewall…
