Why not?

Writing about web page /creay/entry/end_of_uni/

Writing about an entry you don't have permission to view

Best day: Hard to think of one as most of my really good evenings have had crappy mornings and vice versa.

Worst day: Another hard one. Pick pretty much any day in July 2005.

Best decision: Signing up for counselling

Worst mistake: Russian for Scientists II

Craziest on–campus antic: Sure there were plenty, but I was too drunk to remember them clearly

Favourite place on campus: Probably Social Studies before they started all of the building work. I used to go for a walk and sit there for a bit many nights in my first year.

Most painful experience: Wasn't the most painful at the time, but in terms of residual scarring due to lack of closure, I'd have to say when Hannah and I split.

Favourite lecturers: Any of them that kept me awake

Worst lecturer: Bit of a toss–up between MacKay, Reid and Mond

Biggest waste of time: Going to lectures for modules that I later dropped

Most valuable use of time: Music stuff. Took up one hell of a lot of time, but worth it.

Shortest time between beginning an assignment and handing it in: 40mins.

Average time spent awake during a one–hour lecture: about 45mins

Number of Pub Jogs completed: none. Was gonna do one, but decided moving was too much effort to drank the equivalent drinks in just one place.

Number of times drunk: lost count

Number of exams sat: Can't be bothered to count. About 30–35.

Number of times expelled from Students Union: None, but I was once asked by a member of staff to consider going home.

Cars crashed: 0

Cars owned: 0

Friends for life: Hopefully some.

Best Friends: Oli, I guess. I'm a bit too much of a floater to gather a proper "best friends" group.

Girlfriends: 1

Sam's alphamambet

Writing about New Alphabet from The Drunk Drummer

A: The most Audacious thing you’ve ever done

I once ran down the street wearing nothing but a shirt chasing after a woman just because I thought she was pretty

B: Favourite Badger joke

They're all good

C: Favourite Curry

I like to vary it a bit. Jalfrezi is always good.

D: Number of drinks it takes to get utterly Drunk

I always used to expect the hips to come into play at about 4˝

E: Your most Effeminate characteristic

You have met me, right…

F: The last thing that you got for Free

I got a big shiny parcel – it's a birthday present and I haven't opened it yet

G: Number of times that you’ve visited a Gym


H: Where you call Home

I suppose Leam, as Oxfordshire is home home.

I: (leaving things open for dodgy minds…) Any Instruments that you play

Tuba. Also got a kazoo somewhere

J: (and again…) Favourite Juice

Grape, apple and raspberry

K: Song that you would sing Karaoke to

Don't like singing.

L: Number of times you’ve Laminated – and if you’ve achieved your laminating qualifications from the MC Office yet

Lost count. Former Librarian, thus well and truly laminator qualified.

M: (As seen on the BBC News website:) How much Money do you think you’d need to be happy?

If money can make me happy…

N: Favourite Naan to have with aforementioned curry


O: Your Oldest possession

Oldest as in one I've had the longest would be my monkey. Oldest as in oldest would probably be one of my books. My copy of Les Mis is pretty ancient.

P: Your worst Phobia


Q: Something that makes you feel Queasy

For some reason, certain pieces of music have started making my stomach clench

R: Recent New Year Resolutions made, and how many still going

By recent you mean 10˝ months ago? Well, about half of them have been completed and the other half broken.

S: Favourite Season

Early Autumn

T: Number of cups of Tea consumed per day (on average)

None. I do not drink tea. Perhaps an average of 1 bottle iced tea per 3 weeks.

U: The most Useful lesson you’ve ever learnt:

ALWAYS piss on the cat.

V: Number of Valentines cards received (either in your life or in the last year – depending on how popular you are!)

This year, 0. Total, about 4.

W: A film that can make you Weep

It's a wonderful life

X: Have you ever dyed your hair to become Xanthocomic (Blonde: link)


Y: Your Youngest memory (removed the yeti question now I’m afraid!)

Riding my bike round in circles on the back patio

Z: Favourite animal you could see in a Zoo

Wooly monkey

Curse you Denis Wright

Yesterday I realised that: Today is the first contest band rehearsal. I don't know my part. There was no way I was going to practice yesterday. I did not want to practice just before rehearsal. Wednesday is a busy day for me. The only time I could practice is before my 9:00 lecture, so I'd have to be on campus close to 8:00, so I'd have to wake up soon after 6:00. I need a lot of sleep. I would have to go to bed early

Result: go to bed at 6pm. Have a long, but broken, sleep. Wake up 5:45 [before my alarm], really not wanting to get up. Get up anyway. Shower, get dressed [It seems God is no longer talking to me through my socks as Wednesdays are orange, not green], eat an apple for breakfast [must go shopping]. Make it to the busstop in time for the 7:30. Write 2 under all the Gbs in the piece. Write 12 under the Fbs [WHY????]. Arrive on campus. Wrestle with the instrument store for a bit [I'm pretty sure I helped tidy it last week] until eventually I could get to the BBb. Practice [badly – mispitching EVERYTHING. Curse you playing Eb in WO]. Go to lecture. Nearly fall asleep [despite having nearly 12 hours sleep last night]. Avoid doing any work by going to computer room.

Today has been a Bad Day.

If you take today as starting at midnight, the main thoughts of today have been:

"that looks crap"
"why am I still up?"
"why did I wake up this early?"
"why did I lie in so late?"
"Ow! my finger!"
"Which idiot thought of a masked ball?"
"My foot is bleeding"
"Those were MY glasses you broke"
"Stupid fireplace! stubbing my toe"
"Every 10 minutes, my arse!"
"God, it's cold"
"0% chance of precipitation? I think not!"
"Why is my head so big?"
"I'm running really late"
"Bugger. Forgot to get lunch"
"I want to die"

On the plus side, Eggs Benedict is still great, and Kerrie is still my favouritest shop assistant in the world.

Delia smith never thought of THIS

Ingredients [entire food content of kitchen]:
˝ packet diced chicken
˝ packet mini-corn, asparagus & mange tout
1 egg
1 Stock cube
Various spices

Cook rice in stock
Meanwhile, fry chicken in spices
Boil posh veg.
Put all on plate.
Top with fried egg [over-easy]
Garnish with black pepper.

OK, so it's not going to win any awards, but it's better than half the pre-packaged stuff you can get and shows that random stuff makes a good meal.

Today I'm in favour of…

Yes – the old cynical me has been replaced with a new procrastinating me. I'm even so lazy that I'm liking things instead of doing anything productive.

So the things that I'm liking are:

  • eggs benedict
  • lovely shop people who don't get impatient when I'm standing there like a stunned mullet, completely incapable of answering even the simplest questions

Back again. How I missed you.

Oh, God of pancakes…

Great Shrove, whom we commemorate this day, what have I done to anger you?
Why oh why cause both of my frying pans to lose their non-stick ability at this time?

Note to self: [another one]

When you go shopping, and your shopping list contains amoung other things champagne, tinned soup, fruit juice and apples, it might be a better idea to go to the closest supermarket.

Writing about an entry you don't have permission to view

Hydra Banner
You're a hydra. You have many different outlooks on
life, and know how to utilize each one to make
the best of any situation. Others may mistake
this for hypocrisy or even insanity, but you
know yourself better than that. Indecision is
your greatest flaw. Your alignment tends
slightly towards evil.

What mythical beast are you?
