If Shakespeare had written the Hokey Cokey [15 Jan 2006|09:20pm]
O proud left foot, that ventures quick within
Then soon upon a backward journey lithe.
Anon, once more the gesture, then begin:
Command sinistral pedestal to writhe.
Commence thou then the fervid Hokey-Coke,
A mad gyration, hips in wanton swirl.
To spin! A wilde release from Heavens yoke.
Blessed dervish! Surely canst go, girl.
The Hoke, the coke -- banish now thy doubt
Verily, I say, 'tis what it's all about.

the Wit

(69% dark, 17% spontaneous, 27% vulgar)

your humor style:


You like things edgy, subtle, and smart. I guess that means you're probably an intellectual, but don't take that to mean you're pretentious. You realize 'dumb' can be witty--after all isn't that the Simpsons' philosophy?--but rudeness for its own sake, 'gross-out' humor and most other things found in a fraternity leave you totally flat.

I guess you just have a more cerebral approach than most. You have the perfect mindset for a joke writer or staff writer. Your sense of humor takes the most effort to appreciate, but it's also the best, in my opinion.

Also, you probably loved the Office

Loads of people in my Maths class are complaining about the exam we had this afternoon, because they forgot to turn the paper over and missed the easy choice of question on the back page. This, despite the fact that writ large at the bottom of the inside page : TURN OVER.

You Belong in Australia


Sunny, upbeat, and cute

You make the perfect surf bum

Now stop hogging the vegemite!

You Are Green Tea Pocky

Your attitude: natural and zen
Peaceful yet full of life. Deep and thoughtful.
You're halfway to tantric bliss!

Good things are happening this week.

I managed to get 80 on both Vectors and Foundations, yay. I even did better in Mechanics than I thought I would...more than 10% is definitely a result ^_^

I went home momentarily at the weekend. I miss my bed more than I thought. I had bento from Zipangu which was loverly and...well, compartmentalised... I reread 'Rebecca' by Daphne du Maurier and realised again how good it is. I am now rereading 'Guards! Guards!', and discovered that there may be a Pratchett meet in the York area soon which would be good. I found a fellow 'Spaced' fan. I am going to see U2 in Amsterdam on July 13th with Waish and Chris and Rob and it will be soooooo good. I have been waiting 4 years for U2 to tour. It feels so good when you realise a long-held ambition I think ^_^ It may just be the best birthday present ever. Yay!

I went for an interview for a job at Borders, but they didn't want me (surprise surprise...) so no extra money, alas, but it's the first time I have ever been invited to an interview, so maybe in a couple of years someone may actually want to employ me. It was worth a shot though.

In a departure from the usual student cuisine, I purchased some mangoes and a pomegranate. And some cherry bakewells because they were on special offer. Thank-you sainsbury's...

Oooooh. I went into the Apple store at the weekend and had lots of fun playing with a graphics tablet. Fun! Although I don't think the staff there appreciated the squiggly red line I saved as the desktop. It probably ruined their shiny apple titanium feng shui.

20 lyrics thing (see if you know what they are, that is):

1. Cold outside, it gets so hot in here, and the boys and girls collide to the music in my ear
2. Look, find, free, do you get it yet?
3. You're such an inspiration for the ways I will never choose to be
4. Something is about to give, I can feel it coming, I think I know what it is
5. I don't care if Monday's blue, Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too
6. I want to run, I want to hide, I want to tear down the walls that hold me inside
7. Yesterday I got so old I felt like I could die
8. You make me dizzy running circles in my head
9. I lost myself on a cool damp night, I gave myself in that misty light, was hypnotized by a strange delight
10. Key to your fate so forsaken, crushed by the way that you cry
11. Sometimes I feel like I don't have a partner, sometimes I feel like my only friend is the city I live in, the city of angels
12. See the stone set in your eyes, see the thorn twist in your side
13. So if you're lonely you know I'm here waiting for you
14. Crept on you like slowly, but faster than you could see
15. Do you ever feel like you just landed on this earth?
16. Is it getting better or do you feel the same?
17. When your day is long, and the night, and the night is yours alone
18. there is freedom within, there is freedom without, try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
19. Where do we go, nobody knows, I've got to say I'm on my way down
20. Looking out the door I see the rain fall upon the funeral mourners

Hmmm. My playlist seems very boring.

Over the past week I have managed to watch the entire first series of ER. Oh the joys of DVD boxsets (and the second series is released next Tuesday, yay). My many (non) Birthdays were very good- sushi and Room 101 on Friday, on Monday I saw Chris before he buggered off to Japan to receive gifts (CD and photo of interesting sunshine/sunbust thing). Tuesday went to see Shrek 2 and have pizza which was muchos fun. Had good conversations while the waitress disappeared somewhere for half an hour... This Monday I went to bluewater with Pippa and received a tripod to further my attempts to take good photos (lol). I also was given a photo album from Kathers (already filling up nicely ^_^), a yoghurt maker, a shirt of stripiness and a new watch. My dad is currently considering buying me a PowerBook with his payrise for some unknown reason. I wasn't really that bothered before, but now he mentions it it would be kind of nice. And shiny. And anodized. Yeah. I also went to Buckingham palace yesterday, to the Garden Party, where I did not meet the queen, but I did listen to a military brass band playing the Star Wars theme and eat some very nice smoked salmon rolls, tuna sandwiches with the crusts cut off and really nice chocolate cake. The gardens there are really nice but you can still hear the sound of the traffic on the other side of the walls which kind of spoils the effect of the verdant planting. Walked out through the palace which was dripping with gold. All in all, very nice.

Thus far, I have done absolutely nothing productive with my holiday.

I went to the cinema today to see Shaun of the Dead which was excellent. Just like an extended episode of Spaced, but with zombies. Wunderbar.

Other than this, I experienced the feeling of it being a very small world after all at Jade's party on Monday night when I saw one of Pippa's friends.

Must go and do some work.

I really hate that feeling where you are just about to sneeze, and you are anticipating it, then nothing happens, and you are left with this strange tightness behind your nose. It keeps making my eyes water which is getting very annoying.

I was supposed to be tutoring today, but she forgot (again) and went to her friend's house instead, which I'm sure was far more interesting than listening to me whining on about maths for an hour.

Supposed to be doing Mechanics coursework soon- aaaaaaagggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Today I learnt the difference between cookies and biscuits and cakes, and where these diverse genres of confectionery combine (such as viennese whirls- cakes or biscuits?) Sainsbury's were giving away free food which was quite good, although eating cornflakes without a spoon isn't particularly easy. Meh.

Had an interesting debate today in English about whether people can be born evil or whether it is something that is acquired in the course of growing up. This was probably the highlight of my day, apart from having the afternoon off to revise for exams/watch E.R. I have done nothing else this week, and now I have to go and tutor...

Ebay is either the root of all evil or a source of great joy. I am as yet undecided.

This week I have...done nothing much. Walked home a lot, mainly.

I finished reading His Dark Materials again, better the second time around but I am still a bit annoyed about how fervently Philip Pullman displays his atheism. I don't think I have it in me to hate Christianity and other organised religion that much, I am sure they must have done some quite good things at some time or another.

I am going to London tomorrow. Woo.

Christmas [27 Dec 2003|05:24pm]
[ mood | listless ]

For Christmas, I received a cake tin. A really small one.

On Christmas Eve I went to the crib service after a threat from my mother that I would burn in hell if I didn't go. So I went, and it wasn't even any good because they had decided to cut out the Three Wise Men due to a time constraint. And the Vicar has this new 'dude' haircut which is slightly disturbing.

On Christmas day I was ill, which meant I kept sneezing. This was most frustrating because I wanted to read a book but my eyes were watering and there was nothing good on the tv. On the positive side, I now have every single U2 CD ever (huzzah!), the greatest hits of REM which came with a poster and a nice explanatory booklet too, and some Elbow. And of course, the extended DVD of The Two Towers which is very very very good. And some strobing pyjamas.

I watched the first part of Pirates of the Caribbean on Wednesday, but missed the end because I needed to eat my dinner. It was not like I expected it to be. I would quite like to watch the end now, because Token woman and Johnny Depp are currently stuck on an island, etcetera etcetera.

So it was quite good really, apart from being ill. I watched 'The Life Of David Gale' yesterday, universally panned by the critics but I didn't mind it that much. Anyway, it had this quite good bit in it about fantasising about things, and how you always tend to fantasise about the impossible because once you have achieved it, you don't want it anymore.

Catch 22 was on the Big Read on Saturday, hopefully lots of people will vote for it now.

After becoming suddenly and irrationally annoyed this morning, I have decided that anger is something I truly do not understand. I then received the same forward about anger twice, the one about losing your temper scarring people for life. On my walk home, I thought about it, and it occured to me that I was more annoyed about having a bad weekend than anything that happened to me in the first 10 minutes of being at school. I still haven't heard from Imperial yet, they said a week and it will be two weeks ago tomorrow. Even if it is to tell me to bugger off, I still want to hear from them. Miss Ward had a go this morning for not telling me absolutely everything about everywhere I have been, which did not help the fact I was seething. I need anger management or something because I was violently and uncontrollably annoyed, and I didn't really know why at the time. Agh.

I gave in and started reading the Silmarillion...

feeling the need to have a moan [08 Nov 2003|07:54pm]
[ mood | irritated ]


I had an interview at Imperial on Tuesday. I don't want to find out how it went, I just want to rewind time so that it didn't happen and I didn't make a complete fool of myself. They do have an ale bar though, thereby reinforcing the stereotype that all scientists drink stout, have beards, wear dodgy pullovers, etc. Most of the students there did seem a bit like that, apart from the lecturer I saw who was wearing a cyberdog t shirt and had a face full of piercings. On the plus side though, I went to the Lord of the Rings exhibition afterwards at the Science Museum which was excellent. They had all of the costumes, swords, helmets etc there, which were incredibly impressive. Everything they used in the film was so detailed, they really went out of the way to recreate Tolkien's vision. Unfortunately the robbing bastards couldn't be bothered to make a programme for the event, nor could they sell anything decent in the way of memorabilia (Legolas pencils anyone?)

Waish and I are going to Southampton on Wednesday, and a couple of Wednesdays after I am off to Royal Holloway (nowhere near the prison). Amazing how all these interviews seem to fall on Wednesdays, ho ho ho ho ho ho. I hate Wednesdays. Wednesdays mean general studies and the neverending double lesson of doom with Mrs Callan.

On the plus side, I have an offer from York (huzzah!)

I really have nothing better to talk about at the moment. Apart from the fact I am illogically hating feminists. What exactly are they trying to prove by behaving exactly like chauvinists but claiming that it's OK because they are women? Aaagggggggghhhhhhhhhhhh.

Portslade Rock ~ not a famous novel by Graham Greene [19 Oct 2003|08:17pm]
[ mood | exanimate ]

I went to Brighton today for a UK Youth Parliament meeting. It was so thrilling that the entire Kent delegation (yes all 5 of us) walked out, went to Brighton Pier and ate ice cream. Nevermind the fact it's October and cold enough without the ice cream... I found out one of the Kent people, Andy, applied to do Oriental Studies at Pembroke... it would be odd if both of us got in (although the probability of this is somewhere lower than winning the lottery twice in a row I would imagine) To add to the weirdness, I received a letter from Karl on Friday, more worrying than anything else because I don't recall giving him my address. Highly unexpected.

Conference on Friday, made a fool of myself by going on stage and forgetting what I meant to say. Bugger. Our side still won though, although this was because of Tim alone, witnessed by the fact that the MP went to talk to him after the debate and not me.

Catch 22 is in the top 21 books for the Big Read. Excellent. I have read quite a few of them, although I haven't yet voted.
