so… tired… am… guh… my brain…

just received this in my email. my brain is melting with exhaustion but this seems to be offering me free gas for a year at only $150 a month. now, the 'free' element of this seems to be a fallacy equalled only by that of the 'upgrade offer' in the library cafe which enables us to 'upgrade' from ribena to lucozade at an extra cost of only 30p (what? what? doesn't this just mean 'don't have ribena, try lucozade instead'?)

god, i'm tired. i'm so tired that i can't feel my left hand. i'm stuck in the learning grid until 2am though waiting for carter to finish DJing some absurd 80s night, or something, so here i am.

oh god! why is everyone else in here talking in super-speeded-up french? gah!!!

man in the learning grid who is sniffing every thirteen seconds…
i am staring at you and i am waiting for you to sniff
i wish terrible things upon you

oh sartre, how right you were. truly, hell is other people.
not much to report other than that i have been glaring at the woman seated in front of me for several minutes. she's been staring at her computer with an utterly aghast expression since i arrived; also, she's wearing a t-shirt that says 'chicks rule' and she just put on a hoodie with the same slogan. for some reason, this has made me feel irrationally very angry. if anyone else is about, do tell me something nice… i'm losing it…

  1. It was a night of power ballads I believe. Someone was doing the sniffing thing in my last exam, the urge to turn round and thwack him one was difficult to resist (but I managed).

  2. It was indeed Power Ballads, and they were indeed Powerful. I now have a blow-up electric guitar because I wore face paint and put my hair up, ace! Whether this would be classed as an Air Guitar I do not know. Probably not, as the outside is plastic.

    Anyway, I love you, Eimer, and..um…bunnies are nice, and hopefully the next time I see you I won't be talking to someone else and we shall have a discussionor indeed perhaps a conversation!

    Oh it was Power Ballads. I thought it was Power Ballards and went out wearing a blond wig. No wonder I didn't win any prizes.

  4. it's funny cos it's (probably) true!

    My mind has actually gone blank. How strange.

    02 May 2005, 10:44

  6. nothing to declare?

    02 May 2005, 10:46

  7. Gordon R

    Except my love??? No. Oh, apart from my breakfast which I'm going to have to go and eat now. Maybe outside in this lovely Leam sunshine.

    (platonic love of course, I don't want to get in trouble again)

    02 May 2005, 11:10

  8. extreme

    02 May 2005, 11:13

  9. Gordon R

    Extreme breakfasting – the new craze.

    02 May 2005, 12:40

  10. gordon random, you're so rumbled!

    02 May 2005, 12:58

  11. gordon r


    02 May 2005, 13:24

  12. haha…totally rumbled… maybe i'll see you at abandon, ah?

    02 May 2005, 13:50

  13. Carter

    Yes. And I'd just like to add an honorary schoolyard-style chant of " – HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!" to that.

    Can't for the life of me remember what she looks like, mind. I suppose we'll just have to look out for someone whose eyes are rolling round in their head like Daffy the Mogwai in 'Gremlins 2'.

    02 May 2005, 16:00

  14. Gordon R

    Er, that's not very nice. Shame I can remember what you look like, Carter.

    So tonight then Eimear?

    02 May 2005, 16:35

  15. nahhh not tonight… i'm pushing all the way through til 2am at the learning grid, woohoo! soon, though!

    02 May 2005, 16:41

  16. Gordon R

    No time for a quick drink then?

    02 May 2005, 16:50

  17. not unless you're on campus and you fancy whisking me away from the learning grid!

    02 May 2005, 16:53

  18. Gordon R


    a) sit in the garden while the guy next door blasts out his crappy candy shop song

    b) whisk you away – have a pleasant time of it

    c) attempt to come and whisk you away only for you to hide and laugh at me from afar as I try and find you – and generally feel a bit stupid. It's a bit of a risk

    02 May 2005, 17:04

  19. a) sounds like bilge to me
    b) sounds like a conditional offer
    c) sounds like an unlikely event as i think you'll have no problems recognising me…

    02 May 2005, 17:08

  20. Gordon R

    a) yes, agreed

    b) certainly a possibility

    c) more worried you'll hide on purpose

    02 May 2005, 17:10

  21. me? hide and seek stresses me out far too much. i'm the one staring in dismay at the computer and wearing the tesco value clothes.

    02 May 2005, 17:11

  22. Gordon R

    and I am so laughing at that picture!!! sorry, I shouldn't really… no! I can't help it. laughing again.
    isn't it a bit weird if I just turn up?

    02 May 2005, 17:14

  23. isn't 'a bit weird' your speciality?

    ha ha…er…


    02 May 2005, 17:16

  24. Gordon R

    Well that's one way to put me off coming over. Although, at the same time, a reason for me to prove my total lack of weirdness. Yeah, and I look like a real Gordon.

    02 May 2005, 17:18

  25. if you're in leam… don't make the trip just for little old me!

    02 May 2005, 17:22

  26. Gordon R

    Why? Would you feel guilty if I thought I'd wasted my time? And what happened to spontaneity?

    02 May 2005, 17:28

  27. spontaneity will be good in about 1,500 words time, but as for now… i'm wedded to my work…

    02 May 2005, 17:34

  28. Gordon R

    And I'm no marriage wrecker. Invite me to the anniversary.

    02 May 2005, 17:38

  29. just out of curiosity – how do you envisage this great encounter?

    02 May 2005, 17:41

  30. Gordon R

    Darkened skies, dramatic lightning, music that comes from nowhere, a glance over, the look of recognition…..nah,that happened to you earlier in the rain.

    Probably I'll just bump into you, literally as I'm clumsy, then I'll go red and mumble "hi, shit, errr, right". But the first scenario would happen if we were in a film.

    02 May 2005, 17:51

  31. surely. and then what? just one brief encounter or the start of a beautiful friendship?

    ah, film students!

    02 May 2005, 17:53

  32. Gordon R

    Think I'll leave the film students to develop that plot. And best leave you to actually do your work.

    02 May 2005, 18:04

  33. oh, gordon random, an enigma wrapped inside a riddle wrapped inside a mystery! multi-tasking is my speciality. but now i'm going to have to grab some food from some unlikely source on this ridiculous campus. until later, no doubt!
