Current track: The Future Sound Of London – Papua New Guinea [High Contrast Remix]

Well looks like perhaps my first foray into the world of Warwick Blogs wasn't a resounding success. Chris said I sound "really smarmy" and Daryl makes me out to be some sort of attention whore. On the plus side, Ad was (perhaps overly) generous and KK made her prescence felt.

Talking of which: Happy Thanksgiving! *smile*

Oh and Tom's post was some impostor. Although I'd like to think that I am the greatest… actually, scrap that. I'm not vain enough to see myself as the best at anything. I do history as I enjoy it and I'm pretty good at it: I recognise that most people on my course will be better at the subject than me but I'm happy with that. Unlike some people *glares at Rachel*

Today, bit of a non-event. Had two hours sleep, waking at 9am after bed at seven o' clock due to essay problems. Ah well, at least I got it done. No more essays for a good few weeks woohoo! And this time I promise to actually get myself organised and have them done to correct deadlines. I won't say it doesn't piss me off, being such a slacker; I hope that next term I realise from the outset that I should really endeavour to get my stuff sorted and finished on time. Ah well.

Had my Dragon's Ascent seminar (great module, so-so seminars) where I had minimal input due to having had two hours' sleep and only having read one of the texts. Then North Am lecture (interesting course, great seminars) which was OK, about slavery in the southern states.

I realise these general ramblings are no fun. I apologise. Here are some random links to make it worth your while so far:

  • Fark Random funny links, stories etc
  • The Best Page in the Universe Maddox is King of the Blogs. Fact. Doesn't update nearly enough but what he has there is pure comedy gold. Don't click if you are easily offended though
  • Osymyso If you recognise the title of this blog entry, then well done, you have musical knowledge. Check out some of Osy's mega bootlegs, including the half hour 'Puckish Mix'.

There was more, but I can't think now. I should best go and do the readings for my MMW seminar tomorrow (fun fun fun)...

  5. Simple; I post on almost everyone's blog eventually :)

    But, yes you are very special because you are up as late as me.

  6. See if we can out-sleep-deprevation each other eh?

    My new 'record' is 7AM, with the alarm waking me up two hours later. My average is somewhere between five and six in the morning…

    Sleep is for the weak :-p

  7. I'm afraid my average is only a puny 3:30 am, my recent best was on the American Electon night when I stayed up till the morning local news started playing on BBC 1.

    And while sleep maybe for the weak I seem to end up sleeping through the morning everyday and waking up at lunchtime.

  8. Amateur :-P
