One of those days…

I’ve had one of those days when all I really wanted to do was scream. Not because it was a bad day or because it was valentines day (actually had to be reminded about that), but just cos.

It really hit me this afternoon when I was studying, or at least trying to study and I think I came to the following conclusion:

I am in an office for around 8 hours of the day, travelling to get the the office for 3 hours of the day, getting ready for and calming down from the office for 2 hours of the day, sleeping for 8 hours of the day, which leaves 3 hours of the day to do whatever I want, but most of the time I’m too tired to do anything except sit in front of the TV or read a book or lie down. This means that I feel most of the time that I lack the freedom to do whatever I want.

This was all made worse by seeing kids playing outside in the sun because it’s half term.

Summary – I need a holiday. Like, a university length one. Unfortunately I’m not going to get one of those until I retire now. Oh well.

That is all…

Things I've recently found out about myself

  • I have managed to lose nearly half a stone since starting work. This is not good as I’m already pretty slim.
  • I can be very fake at times. This is worrying and not nice. Maybe I should consider a career change and become an actress.

So accidents can't happen anymore?

Basically this is a bit of a rant about the recent BBC coverage of the Richard Hammond crash.

Firstly, in my opinion I don’t care that they showed it. It was always going to be a ratings winner and so I’m not surprised the BBC showed, however, it’s never nice to see something that awful happen, especially when you know it did happen (as opposed to action films).

Anyway, I have 2 points here:

  • Why are there people out there complaining about it being on TV?
  • Why does someone have to be “blamed” for it?

On the BBC news website a few days after the film was first shown there were reportedly numerous complaints about it being shown. Firstly because it was not nice veiwing, but also the way Top Gear dealt with it. Firstly, if you don’t usually watch Top Gear and therefore have no idea about the humour used on the show and then only watch it to see the accident and then complain about the way they delt with it, you have no leg to stand on. I am a regular watcher and that’s the sort of thing they do all the time. I refuse to pander to people who are so petty as to ignor the warnings about the film being disturbing and then complaining. Secondly, the humour they used was morbid, but that’s how some people cope in a bad and upsetting atmosphere (I know from seeing friends cope with bad situations) and the show being what it is I expected nothing less.

As for my 2nd point, I really don’t see why anyone should be blamed. Even Hammond has said it was an accident and since he was the person most affected by this why does it have to go any further? I really hate this whole “blame culture” we seem to be living in, but that’s another blog entry (which I will never write because it would take too long).

Now, if people who regularly watch Top Gear and watched the film of the crash and are not of a nervous disposition have genuine concerns or thinks that someone should be to blame, then please let me know. I would be happy to try and understand their concerns/complaints.

Note to self

Refrain from listening to very good music that makes you feel good and want to drive faster. It is bad. Accidents happen.

Fun times :D

I’m in the house. Alone. And I’m having the best time!!

Parents have gone, I’m alone, I’m in a detached house and there’s a really good stereo here that hardly ever gets used. What am I supposed to do apart from play very loud music, dress up and dance the night away?!

Brilliant times :D:D:D

Oh, and I’ve realised that if I miss the letters of my name by one to the right (if that made any sense) then it spells:


How great (and random) is that?!

Byes for now

True or False?

“Women may be able to fake orgasms, but men can fake entire relationships.”

In my opinion very true!

Oh, and apparently I’m a 7. I don’t know if that’s out of 10 or pinter. Either way, it was my goal in life to be rated…

I probably shouldn't have tried this…

Writing about web page http://thesurrealist.co.uk/trivia.pl?subject=Liz&gender=f

I saw this on someone’s facebook page and thought I’d give it a try. Given the answers I probably shouldn’t have…

Ten Top Trivia Tips about Liz!

  7. The pharoahs of ancient Egypt wore garments made with thin threads of beaten Liz!
  8. Liz can squeeze her entire body through a hole the size of her beak!
  9. The canonical hours of the Christian church are matins, lauds, prime, terce, sext, none, Liz and compline.

Ice skating

I really really cannot ice skate! I mean really!

I have now been several times and I still can’t get going without a push off from the side (yes, I have been stranded in the middle of the ice before – not nice), I can’t stop without going flying and for some reason when trying to keep going my skates slip. I don’t mean the normal ice skating kind of normal slip/slide, but they actually scrape the ice.

Is this total inability to ice skate just me? I feel a bit useless :s

Odd conversations that I've had recently

  • The office printer sounding like whales having sex.
  • Testing the consistency of a cow pat with a rose.
  • Seagulls exploding after feeding them soap powder*.

(*Do not try this! Apparently it doesn’t work, but they will die.)
