Fingers on buzzers…
So, how many "first posts" will be made on wednesday? Any guesses? Will the stats peak like a 7.2 on the Richter scale? Hopefully it won't be as tragic as I expect, although it would prove to be one of the few times my pessimism has let me down.
Still, I can't help but feel optimistic this week, for on top of the prospect of imminent employment I will at last get to spend the 14th with my true love. Which definitely beats last year (when I was forced, by circumstance, to spend it with my brother - I'm sure he was equally thrilled) and, come to think of it, the other preceeding twenty... But finally on wednesday I'll get to snuggle up with my darling, my treasure, my "Parfait Amour" - all 70 neon-violet centilitres of it. Bliss.

Believe it or not, I shall quite possibly be celebrating with a pint of Onken.

But, crucially, will it be strawberry onken to get into the spirit of all things pink and fluffy? Or will it be peach and passionfruit because it just tastes so goddamn awesome?

I’m duty tutor on campus so will have to sit by the phone in case security need a resident tutor. Hopefully this does not cover heartbroken/loved up students causing incidents…

I’m open to offers. Hint.
12 Feb 2007, 01:21
No thanks Mat.

I’ll be doing the same thing I do every night, trying to take over the world.

There’s a part of me that hopes you suceed, Andrew. Valentines Day is so naff. There are 364 other days in the year, why restrict all this outpouring of love to one day?
12 Feb 2007, 07:23
Because that is when the voicesTM tell us we must.

I’m gonna spend valentines with my true love. Mmmmm chocolate.

The One With The Hair might try and crash this party, you may have to hide in a bunker*.
*i.e. underground lair, not sand-trap.

I don’t think The One With The Hair would dare infiltrate a sand trap though… it’d be in his hair and everything

I wouldn’t want to come between Helen and chocolate…

I wouldn’t want to come between anyone and chocolate – I’m not to keen on being viciously mauled…
Holly, I’m sorry to have to be the one to break it to you, but your shift is going to be a big pink fluffy pile of distress and tissues. And then they will go back to their rooms and blog. There is nothing in this world that makes the internet as attractive as total saturation of depression and alcohol – it’s the way of the web, there is just something deeply fulfilling about an annonymous broadcast.
Mat, if it means that much to you, you can be my honourary valentine. Honourary only because there is someone I would ask but I couldn’t be more chicken if I were covered with feathers and laid eggs. If fact, as Doug Naylor so exquisitely put it, I have “a yellow streak larger than a herd of stampeding diarrhoetic camels”. Which sucks for me.
But it does leave me more free time in which to take over the world with Andy. Narf.

Reference to Legion = winnage.

Indeed. Although my favourite quote in the world has to be from “Colony”
You’d be amazed at how many drunk people that could accurately describe…
12 Feb 2007, 14:00
I’m actually surprisingly okay with that.
But seriously, get your act together, lass, and ask the person you actually want to! Risk and reward, eh?
12 Feb 2007, 14:32
I hate risk. It’s hard enough keeping out of harm’s way when there is seemingly no risk involved. Or maybe my inner Risk:Reward calculator is a little skewed. Either way, I’m not about to pour out my lifestory to the world, it’s just really hard to change how you are.

Draw more cartoons!
Cartoons have been scientifically proven to solve all of the worlds problems. *hugs*
12 Feb 2007, 19:43
my drawing output has been severely hindered by discovering this
though I’m hoping this doesn’t happen…
12 Feb 2007, 22:13
where are jobs you applied for?

Happy Valentine’s Day, special friend
14 Feb 2007, 09:27
Happy Valentine’s Day, Mat-with-one-t :)
14 Feb 2007, 14:06
Wait a second, is that the good kind of special or the “special” kind of special…
14 Feb 2007, 14:08
The good kind :)
