Ok am starting to get a bit excited now only a week and a bit till it starts, so any predictions??
I'm gonna be absurdly optimistic and go for England.
As long as Sven gets the midfield right and Terry and Campbell form a strong partnership quickly we'll have a decent chance.
Anyone else got any words of wisdom?

Whats going on with the trains??? i need to get from Wales to Coventry on Monday night – i dont think it will be affected apart from a replacement bus to get me from Birmingham to Cov – does anyone know any differently?
you would think the fourth richest country (or whatever we are) in the world would be able to cobble together a decent transport network but of course its not that straightforward is it!!!!!!!!!!

Have just bought this two cd set which is a 'pure selection of Afro Beats and Electro Tunes' – is seriously good – very cool, very funky, easy to listen too, even has a track by Cesaria Evora who played the arts centre the other day (did anyone go, how was it?)
anyway this is well worth a look for any one who likes afro beat, african music or just good funky tunes

We got a BNP leaflet through the door the other day and unsurprisingly it's a complete load of crap. Apparently 'Asylum is allowing hundreds of 'asylum bombers' to plan their atrocities in Britain…' hmmm… im not really gonna go on and say much more or i may implode with fury…
by the way did anyone read thta interview t'other day with Nick Griffin's daughter – i really felt that they let her off lightly in that and should have been much more ruthless with her…

Writing about web page http://gallery.euroweb.hu/
This is a great site for art of the Gothic Renaissance and Baroque periods, it has thousands of high quality images as well as plenty of good starting information on each artist – which unlike a lot of websites seems to be accurate.
A very good resource for the art hitorians among you!

We have 2 major problems with our house at the moment –
1. the drain outside the kitchen is blocked – and smells – bad
2. the shower no longer seems to work – it only does cold
we have told the PLU people but no sign of anyone yet – it must be sorted out quickly though – i had to go to campus to have a swim and therefore use the showers this morning – it cant go on!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am second year studying History of Art (and a bit of Italian .. oh and practical art too)... er… well now I live in Chapelfields in the wonderful city of Coventry with four housemates who study various combinations of histroy and politics. I had my first exam yesterday – my Italian Oral, which went suprisingly well – i gave a presentation about 'il mio tempo libero' (my free time) and then they asked me a few questions for which i was able to cobble together some half decent sentences.
erm… i think thats pretty much it for my first entry …. now i'll go and try to think of some interesting things for next time
