Give me that marker pen…

At least on average it evens out.

Exams arriveth. MCT was this morning, which could have gone worse.

And news just in: exams this year will be over by 12:30pm on Saturday 28th May. That leaves a whole 4 weeks of term. Nice. But this means the 'summer' exams start on 16th May. And that isn't very far away really.

That's all for the moment.

American petrol prices

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/4425593.stm

Sorry, gas prices. Do you think they know it's actually liquid. Never mind.

Anyway, yeah, the Americans are complaining that $2.35 per gallon is too high. That's the equivalent to about 28p per litre. How do we put up our extremely high petrol prices? The current average is 85.6p per litre, a record high. And it seems they will go up a further 2p if Labour return for a third term. It's ridiculous.

1 month until the election…

…and 2 months until the end of exams (well, give or take).

I'm not too sure whether the latter observation is good or bad. The various polls suggest it's "Not too bad" at the moment. The Swingometer shows that all that's needed is a 5% swing in the direction of a 2:1. Can't be too much to ask.

My campaign (to get a job) is still going strong. This week should see it venture nationwide and not just within my constituency.

In other news, I love the way the PM has to personally go and ask Queenie whether parliament can go on another holiday so that there can be a general election. I also love the way it took 2 posh cars to drive him to her front door. He keeps on and on about the economy…

Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

It's been a while…

…but I am still here.

Exams are looming. But at least I only have two in the first week back. Unfortunately this means I have five (I think) in the summer. I still need to deregister from Geometry because it's likely to be 3 weeks after the others and sitting an exam when everyone else is lounging around in the sun eating ice cream and playing frisbie would just be unfair.

Final thing: who would take small children to a Requiem Mass in St. Paul's?

Does everyone share this opinion?

Follow-up to Front–page Boar from We're ranting and raving here in Pedants' Corner...

I have two main questions:

1) Why should people who clearly have no respect for the rules/law be given a second chance? (Here, one might argue that they are already being given a second chance in being allowed to continue studying at Warwick.)

2) When the policy was passed in the Union General Meeting last term, it was passed with overwhelming majority. Does this result accurately reflect people's opinions on the University's current policy?

Please let me know.

Front–page Boar

Apparently the Union are pissed off that the University won't let students do something that is against the law. Is this really what our Union is for?

I've found a computer that works!

It's completely random. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. Some of the computers in the maths block have problems with new windows popping up, even when you press control. This means you can't read your e-mail on webmail and you can't log into blogs.warwick.ac.uk.

But Lo! I have found a computer that likes popping up.

Meanwhile, back at Ranelagh, our TV aerial has collapsed. This means the only thing we can watch without driving me crazy are old episodes of Have I Got News For You? and future episodes of Desperate Housewives. This isn't altogether A Bad Thing - at least one of those day-time auction programmes can't be on when Toasted Products are being eaten.

The curse of the dreaded toasted products…

…Coming soon!
