Does what it says on the tin. I'm still quite bored…
Spot the film that the quote is from:
1. "We're going to need a bigger boat."
2. "It's called… a lance… hello?!"
3. "Where is the stone???"
4. "But why's the rum gone?!"
5. "Nobody… messes… with the do!"
6. "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!"
7. "You are, without doubt, the worse pirate I have ever heard of!"
"Ah, but you have heard of me."
8. "Don't forget what the Monty Python boys always say."
"What, always look on the bright side of life?"
"No, nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!"
9. "This is my dance space, that's your dance space."
10. "She puts the itch in bitch."
"She puts the whore in horrifying!"
11. "I can't feel my toes! I don't have any toes! I think I need a hug…"
12. "Cracking cheese…"
13. "Enough. That's enough now"
Right, fire away. I bet that no one can get all of them!
Hmmm… Well, I'm very bored and avoiding my work… so blogging was the obvious option!
Having said that, the work I'm doing at the moment is not too bad. Yes yes, it's all about lesbein vampires. And u thought English Lit was boring…!?!
Nottingham comp this weekend, woop! I think the C Team are going to do soooooo well, they're really gonna kick our arses on the swim and tow! And then there's the social, yey!
Actually, this week is going to be quite stunningly expensive, cos it's Safari Supper tomorrow night as well, which should be great fun. Even though Stu's boiler appears not to be working. Hmmm.

This is just because I was flicking through my photo album today and noticing that, well, Coventry can be a bit rubbish sometimes…
This is at Falmouth, flying a kite on the beach, and it's obviously quite cold. I love the beach when it's cold and windy. Is this a little bit odd? I think it is…
Another beach, this time at Hope Cove, and this time a bit warmer.
I'd really like to be on a boat. Anywhere really, but on a boat.
This boat would do as well.
And this is me at the top of Snowdon, where it is very cold.
Coventry has no hills, or woods, or mountains, or anything good like the Peak District. It just has Kenilworth duck pond. Mmm, ace.

This is truely hilaious. It's by the author that wrote Bunny Suicides, which is an evil book of little line drawings of bunnies killing themelves in various imaginative ways… Nwow, if you know Jon, you shuld know that he finds cruelty to animals truely hilarious, so he loooved that book. This one, on the other hand, is easily better. It includes lots of ideas of lies to tell kids, such as:
– Wine makes Mummy clever
– The tomato is not technically a vegetable. It's actually a type of dolphin
– Cups are just mugs that have been to the gym
– All wind is made at wind farms
And so on.
It's so funny. I was just wondering if anyone's parents told them any interesing lies when they were kids?!

So then. It's that time again. Jen's supposed to be writing an essay, but instead she's doing everything imaginable to avoid it. This is even worse than usual because it's a 5000 word essay about male bonding in Frankenstein and Caleb Williams… Mmm, boring.
So far today, I have managed to: tidy my room, watch Shipwrecked and some Hollyoaks, play Spider Solitaire, talk to various people on MSN, blog stuff, and take about an hour to eat a cheese toastie. (Did you know…) I considered doing some ironing, but that would have been going too far, even for me. So far I've written about 500 words in 4 hours.
Jesus, I'm bored. Someone entertain me, please.

Ok. So here's an insight into the world of Lifesaving training for you. Today we played jungle river. Now, no one at training had ever heard of this before, but I thought this was universally played at swimming lessons for little kids. Obviously, I got a slightly higher exposure to it because my mum's a swmming teacher…
Jungle River is played in a swimming pool, where the sides of the pool are the banks and the pool is the river… obviously. When the teacher shouts "Piranhas!", everyone has to get out of the water or they get eaten. Last one out is, well, out. If they shout "Jaguars!", everyone has to get in the water, because Jaguars are afraid of the water. And if they shout "Headhunters!", everyone has to duck under the water to stop their head being taken. The first one to come up is out.
This was great fun today, largely because I got to stand on the side and shout "Piranhas, jaguars, piranhas, jaguars, piranhas, headhunters!" and so on. It was very funny, sorry people.
So has anyone else heard of this, or was it just me who was scared of water-dwelling headhunters as a child…?

So. It's the New Year, my tree is down and the living room consequently looks very bare. That's ok though, because Christmas was pretty quiet this year anyway.
As to my new year's resolutions, mine are pretty common… I'm going to eat good stuff and exercise. This sounds really general, but I really got in a junk-food-no-exercise-chinese-take-away rut at the end of last year. So now I feel rubbish, and I'm going to make a bit of a difference.

Work always seems so much further away when I'm in Sheffield…
Want to go home…
