This first week of term has been a bad one, with everyone seeming to have deadlines or exams. One thing has kept me entertained, even to the extent that I look forward to when the postman arrives each day. The reason for this, rather odd thing to wait for each day, is that my housemate is receiving a rather lot of junk mail. Today he received some bird seed, after a bumper day yesterday (where he received a whole host of items including roof tiles and a quantity of 'horny pills'). You can visibly see the rage building up inside him, at least he will get a day off from it tomorrow – being Sunday.
I guess you have to have something to keep you entertained in the exam build-up, am sure the wonder and excitement of 'what is Mike going to get in the post today?' will provide entertainment for our house.
I think he should be dead happy aobut it all, he is getting loads of free stuff, and each day is like a mini Birthday where he receives new goodies in the post.

When starting my blog I thought I would take inspiration from others around me, as well as what I feel passionate about.
I have to say I am ever so slightly jealous of all the attention Mark has received from his wonderful blog. So I thought "what better way to get all those 'mini people' to respond angrily to my blog…say how awful that pop ska punk band Hypo Psycho are. Truely genius idea in my eyes.
Hence, I just want to get it off my chest that I really believe that Hypo Psycho are an absolutley terrible excuse for a pop band. Some may describe them as pop-punk, or even ska-punk, they do not even come close to these and I am willing to tear off my eyelids with a rusty spoon if I am proven wrong – they are a pop band.
What gives me the right to claim this I hear you ask. Well I have listened to the two 30 second snippets of the songs on their website, yes plenty enough to make such a bold opinion. A proper band would have a profile on somewhere such as myspace, where whole songs would be streamed, so pathetic effort from the Hypo Psycho lads.
Unlike Mark I have not seen them perform live, I have not listened to any of their music properly, I have not done any research on their background and I am not a member of their forums. The last point there is what gives Mark more stead with his views than mine, as forum membership must get you more scene points.
So after listening to one minute of Hypo Psycho music (twice, so two minutes worth in all) I am stating that they are a big pile of smelly poo. I am just jealous that Mark gets all the attention, especially with his blog getting a higher ranking on google. I want to get a higher ranking on google than him as well.
