The birds and the trees

In one of those random thoughts moods again, so here goes (thought about it last night on the atomic pub crawl).

Has anyone ever seen a partridge in a pear tree? In fact, come to think of it, I don't even know what a partridge looks like (according to Penny it's smaller than a pheasant).
I'm not even sure if I've seen a pear tree either (Stefan reckons that pears could even grow from the ground!)

My point is, I think the "12 days of christmas song" gets our hopes up about wonderful birds in trees (that might not even exist).
Also, when was the last time anyone got 5 gold rings on the fifth day- or any day for that matter! I'm tempted to try and sue the songwriters for false advertising. Does anyone know who wrote it?

Anyway, if anyone sees either a partridge (10 points), a pear tree (5 points) or a partridge in a pear tree (100 points) then take a picture and let me know! (P.S. no pics from google U cheats!)

Mountain High

Do you ever find that you're spending all your time trying to achieve something or to get through a difficult time, and think that when its all over, you won't have anything else to worry about?

I mean, look at exams and education, do we ever get to the end of "achieving" and don't have anything else to do to become successful?

Its like going up a mountain and the peak seems to be just a bit further, but you get there and find that there's a higher peak.

Just when old problems seem to be sorting themselves out and life seems to be settling down, something else pops up and you then have to deal with new challenges.

I don't want to seem like I'm complaining to God, cos there's sooo much that he's done that I'm really thankful for.
I know over the past couple of years, he has really been watching over me and my family, and the one lesson I've learnt is that things happen only in God's time, not my own. So being patient is one of the many virtues I know I should pursue, but being honest, have not achieved yet!

I think I'm still struggling with the idea that I can't do things without God's strength. When things don't go my way, I feel that I've failed. But maybe this wasn't part of his plan, and fighting for the things I think will make me happy, aren't the things that would make me happy after all.

Maybe the answer is to just pursue God, and the other things in life will just happen the way they're meant to happen.

I think I spend too much time worrying about things. Anyway, I've rambled on about stupid things enough already, think it's time to stop.

Sink or swim?

Random thought I had in Varsity last week-
do chickens float, or do they sink?

I reckon if they can't fly, then they'd have to swim, otherwise God's given them the short straw…
…unless they can dance, cos that would make up for it.

A test should be held to crack this thought provoking enigma out before its too late… who's with me?

(no chickens or other animals were harmed in the making of this blog entry)

Atomic Party

What do U get if U mix a load of chemistry geeks, a pubs' back room and some stupid costumes? – the atomic party of course!

It was a top night at the Jug and Jester in Leamington, although not everyone dressed up! I think my favouite was Dan as the hulk, he was so angry he broke my gun!
Alex and I went as the 70's duo, Starsky and Hutch, although we didn't know who was who. Anyone know?

The Bell is ringing

This morning I woke up to the sweet sight of my Delirious album. Not only do I have the new album "Mission Bell", I am now the proud owner of a signed copy! Well, thats all my childhood dreams fulfilled, well except becoming the next James Bond, but there's still time yet.

Watch this space for a review…

The Tests

Writing about web page http://www.jengajam.com/r/chav-test

I've just done a few tests, here are my results:

50% chav (whats wrong with taking the free shampoo from a hotel?)

50% geek (whats wrong with knowing pi to 9 decimal places?)

30% posh

Not really sure how that works, but I really can't believe that I'm more of a geek than Alex!(he got 45%)

Find these tests on:
www.jengajam.com

Try them, and let me know what U get!

Teacher Paul's 24th

Well, its the end of a good, unusual night out, but a very funny one. It was TP's B'day, and we all met up at The Old Orleans for some drinks and then ppl went onto Jumpin' Jacks. I went back with Tara and watched Halloween H20 in the dark, most jumpy bit was when Sarah rang us- nearly had a heart attack.

Highlights of the evening:

  • the overwhelming smell of womens perfume in my car
  • when asked my age by the barman I said 19
  • Tara's squeal "Oooh my skirt" when the wind blew in an unfortunate direction
  • getting to Hearsal Lane, and Tara realising she had no key, so was locked out

Fancy a shower?

Today our shower's been converted to "au naturel" thanks to our landlord. We just have to wait till it rains. He was trying to fix a hole, sort of made a bigger one in the process. So this morning, Ai Vy and I have to go round to Penny's for a shower!

Photos– update

Follow-up to Photos from The Little Blog of Chav

Well, some of summer's photo's R up in my gallery now. Apologies to Tara, but U didn't bribe me, so the bin pic is up.
Oh, and sorry to Miche, but the pic is too good NOT to put up!

The momentumites


Photos

In keeping up with Alex & his blog (which is far inferior than this), thought I'd start updating my photo galleries. I've started a Singapore gallery, which will have more soon. I'll be putting up some other ones from the summer- so watch out for such photos as "Tara in a bin" and "The virgin Jenny"!

47 on the net

Finally, we have both our phoneline and internet connection at our house, in sunny Bristol road. Now I can sit back and blog till my hearts content, or until I get bored and start pestering Alex. (tho well done to him, cos he's the reason we're on the net)

Rev Rocks!

Keeping up with my new resolution to start blogging, thought I better actually mention rev for the 1st time!

If U haven't heard of Revelation (where have U been?) its the warwick's rock gospel choir. Its really good fun, singing, swaying, clapping, funny warm ups and don't forget HARIBO!

Anyway, its on tuesdays at 7:30 in the chaplaincy on campus, anyone can join, even if U R tone deaf(no joke!) cos the aim of rev is to have fun! Tonight we are all wearing some item of pink clothing, in aid of breast cancer awareness, not really a pink-kind-of-person myself, but Miche is gonna lend me her top. Hope there ain't no cameras tonight!

Finally…... come to rev!


I hate labs

Lab yesterday was really short, which was good… but this report is soooooooooo long.
Anyway, Ali- have U been checking my blog everyday for the last 9 months? Otherwise, what are the chances of U reading it the very day I decide to start blogging again.
Plus, I think its quite funny that U R regarded as the "chav" of Brass Soc!

October 24, 2005

I'm back

Finally decided to start blogging again, after 9 months!
Things R gonna start changing round here and its gonna get ugly.
I'm already talking rubbish, well gotta get to labs, chemistry is calling me.

Smallville

Oh yes, Smallville is actually getting quite serious now. End of Season 3- what can I say? Heart stopping, breathtaking drama!
Season 4 has the added factor of a new chick, none other than Lois Lane herself. She may not have the completely stunning looks of Lana, but she has some comedy value, which Lana sadly lacks.

Which is your fav character?

a) Lana
b) Chloe
c) Lois
d) Clarke (for U girls out there)
e) Lex


Music– Killers

Killers- Hot Fuss
Only just got into the Killers, but I'm already a big fan.
Fav tracks- Indie rock and roll

Everything will be alright

There is news that The Killers might be playing at the final fling this year. I'll just go wild if they do! Other possible acts are Natasha Bedingfield and Goldie Looking Chain. Surely there's no competition between these?

The Real welcome

My first entry wasn't really a welcome for my blog, particularly when it wasn't written by me (cheers for that Ai Vy!).
Well, so far I haven't got much up, but I'm slowly getting there. All I have is references to chavs and trees. Anyone else out there enjoy tree climbing?
If anyone wants to start up a society for fellow tree climbers, I'd gladly join them, maybe I could be social exec. Organise outings to the park or local woods.
Enough rambling, post stuff about chavs or trees, extra marks for ppl who get pictures. Even more marks for ppl who get pics of chavs up trees!

It's a tree! It's a man! No! It's… Treeman!


Welcome

Welcome to my blog. I don't know, I can't think of anything. Stop it. Hahaaawww. Oh, maturity. Actually I said the. You're meant to be 20.
