About me

Shameless Plug

I have a fantastic offer on my site at the moment – up to £10 off orders from Splash. The link is that big yellow thing in the middle of the page. I order from Splash quite a lot, and so will be using this offer myself, I reckon.

In other news, it’s raining. It seems to do this every time I go out without a coat, but today it did it in a particularly amusing (though not at the time) way. I was just walking across the Millennium Footbridge , saying how I’d got away with not wearing a coat, when there was a huge lightning flash and thunder, followed by buckets of rain. I got so wet that the clothes I was wearing are now in my shower, drying off.

I ordered four books from Amazon the other day, on free supersaver delivery. They sent each book in a separate box, all of which arrived on the same day, and resulted in the porter thinking it was funny (since they arrived on four separate vans from three different delivery companies). Oh, how he laughed. And today, Blackwells did a similar thing, though they only sent two boxes for three books.

I had to go and buy more glasses (as in the things you drink out of) today, because of my poor washing up habits. I never have any clean ones. Currently, I have three and a mug on my desk. I decided it would be easier to buy more than to wash up more frequently. But this does make me look stupid when I cart four or five glasses from my room to the kitchen. I have a similar problem with emptying my bin – I can never be bothered, so I end up carrying out four or five carrier bags of rubbish at once . I’d worry that people would think I was a freak, but they already know that, I’m only reinforcing the idea.

Last night, Channel 4, Pornography: The Musical was really good. Despite it not being the main focus of my attention, I still can’t get the music out of my head.

I have a pile of work to do, and I desperately trying to avoid sitting down and doing it. If anyone can tell me which bit is the “Upper Respiratory Tract” and which is the lower bit, I’d be happier . Alternatively, you could just tell me what the nerve supply of the visceral pleura is, or basically anything. “Is the visceral pleura sensitive to pain? A simply yes or no will NOT be sufficient, please explain your answer fully”. I don’t even know whether it’s yes or no.

Anyway, I have a session tomorrow which involves examining other people’s nipples. This from the same lecturer who told us to ask friends to help us out with our anatomy. Disturbing.

I’m waffling now to avoid the work, but I’m going to have to do it some time. Go and order some DVDs. Go on. And I’ll go do some work.

Good Evening

I have just returned from the union (so it’s probably not the best time in the world to be posting on t’internet, but never mind). Just as a sidenote, I’ve just performed my own unique karaoke version of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” (With a group of obliging females, of course). You may notice that it’s only 10pm, but that’s because us medics tend to run our ents 6-10, instead of 10-1, due to the fact that lectures start at 9 tomorrow. And I’ve still got a load of lecture notes to write up from last week, but that’s by-the-by.

I want suggestions for an ironic poster for the back of my door. Everybody does the traditional scantily clad man / woman thing, and I want something different. I tried photographing the door to print out and stick on the door, but it looked more weird than ironic. We did have a really good Reservoir Dogs poster in our kitchen (“Are you gonna bark all day little doggie, or are you gonna bite?”), but it’s mysteriously disappeared. I blame JRC. Or Jack, he’s closer and could steal it more easily.

I had lunch in the flat next door today, with Wendy, Sarah and James.

Please comment with your poster suggestions, or I’ll cry and maybe even sing again.

Hugs and Kisses,

Apostrophes’ Officer 2003

The university election for the above mentioned post is now underway. I have no idea what the job entails, but I did notice this gem from one candidate’s manifesto:

Vote for me, I’m great and know about apostrophe’s.
