About me

Tweaked

The joys of owning a website… I’ve tweaked sjhoward.co.uk’s design template, and thrown in a Forum to boot, if you wish to populate it with your wit. Or, if it goes the same way as Tilly Talk , your comments on…well, let’s not go there.

In other news…well, there isn’t any really. All I can say is that I’m into week four of my Easter break, and I’m really not doing much at all, besides the occasional bit of work (Booooo!). And stuffing my face with chocolate, and reapplying for my Student Loans etc. for next year (You had £3000 of debt…But We don’t want to give you that! You now have £6000!).

Well done to Lancashire County Council for improving the PR1 form massively, it’s still a 24-page killer but at least it now includes the loan application instead of that being another 24-page form. Why the first question can’t just be “Are you carrying on from last year and wanting the same loan arrangements? Y/N” I really don’t know. Think how many trees would be saved. And well done on getting Internet Applications set up too, even though I’m far too lazy to use it (Hell, if you make a mistake on the net version it’s obviously your fault…if you mess up on the handwritten one you can blame the person who has to type it into the computer at the other end). Boooo to the DfEE or whatever it is these days for failing to produce the explanatory booklet in time to be sent out with the form. You should be ashamed of yourselves. HANG YOUR HEADS.

I think I have an ear infection.

Just seven days left of being 18, I hope you’re all saving up for some humungous online birthday present. A statue in my horour in Trafalgar Square or something small like that will be fine, thanks. Don’t go naming any buildings or planets after me or anything, unless you really want to.

I can’t get enough of that Mexican Pot Noodle advert. It’s the best ever.

Two words (I use that term in the loosest possible sense) that should be banned NOW: ‘Bling’ and ‘Flava’. Just ban them.

I’ve just thought of the freakiest thing. I hate Dubya. Dubya was the governer of Texas. Texas was Homebase’s original name. I hate Homebase. It’s a perfect circle of hate. [Angelic Ahhhhh]

That’s all I have to say now, I’m off to find a little drinkypoos. Goodnight.
