Or dance music in general for that matter? Or just the entire “clubbing scene” if you want to call it that. It seems that every time I indulge in some, it seems like more and more of a “student scene”; a flashback of the life I used to live before I got a job. And I am incrementally becoming more and more detached from that scene, as though I know deep down that my genuine place now lives elsewhere.
Hmm, I wonder.

Sometimes in life, we have to take a step back from our actions and question the morality of what we are doing.
More often than not though, we then just continue doing it anyway.

Managed to comfortably and effortlessly stick six portions of fruit and vegetables down my digestive system during the course of the day; one in excess of the recommended daily intake as prescribed by those who know. Can’t say its happened previously for a good while at least. Will be interesting to see how long this continues if at all.

In most pub quizzes, the pub owner or event organiser will arrange a prize for the winning team. After all, there has to be some incentive for taking part. This prize can take many forms, but it is not unusual for it to be a crate of beer. Not sure of the exact reasoning behind this, but it’s something you tend to see a lot of. “24-crate of Carling for the winners”, for example.
Surely however, it makes more sense for the beer to be given to the quiz losers than the quiz winners. For whoever is given the beer will naturally drink it all at the earliest opportunity. I.e. now. This will intoxicate them, and in the event of a 24 pack being shared amongst a small team, this means they will forget everything and next day will have no recollection of the evening whatsoever.
At present, the winners get the beer. This means the winners forget that they have won, whilst the sober losers still remember that they lost. Would the world not be a happier place, if the winners were to remember that they had won, whilst the losers were to forget that they had lost?

Another Saturday wasted in its entirety due to being hungover. Another day’s tasks postponed in the short term due to tiredness, headache, and lack of mental clarity. Why is it that this never happened to me at university, when weekends were much the same as any other day, yet happens to me consistently now that my weekends are so much more valuable to me?

If my memory serves me correctly, there’s a strange sense of irony about this year’s Champions League final. I believe AC Milan were actually expelled from the competition before it even started, as punishment for their part in the Italian match-fixing scandal. Yet they appealed against this ruling, got it overturned, and here they are in the final. Sure, they were docked 15 points in the domestic league instead, but that’s a sacrifice anyone would consider worth making, and at the end of the day (season) it’s all turned out rather nicely for them.
I bet their lawyer gets paid well.
