Physics [14th. Jun, 2007|07:06 pm]
Suzie
[Location |London]

One cannot help but feel a strange sense of doom when one thinks of the joys awaiting me tomrorrow. Physics. I have revised a little, but not enough, and it just seems to go in on ear (or eye) and out of the other (or the back of my head). I have a million things I'd rather do - well, OK, just a few things - and not one of them is remotely related to my GCSE Physics exam.

I washed my hair today.

David Hatch is dead! It's just terrible. R.I.P.

A British national day is a crap idea. They'll just try and make it all "multicultural" and "inclusive", totally destroying the point. I should perhaps clarify at this point - multiculturalism and inclusiveness is a GOOD THING but not when it's done for the sake of it. Although another day off school is a great idea. It's a far more important thing to make St George's Day a Bank Holiday than force some rubbish "community spirit" upon us. Also: they say that it will be a day for everyone to come together and meet the neighbours and volunteer and so on. BOLLOCKS. Does everyone observe Easter as a religious holiday, or is it just a day for some chocolate and a long weekend? Also also: Surely there are more important issues the government needs to address than some crap community spirit idea. How about drugs? Crime? Immigration? The general crapness of their policies? Having a day off work that will supposedly allow us to connect with our neighbours is not going to solve an awful lot. Britishness has almost disappeared anyway. We do not have a strong cultural or national identity. Stop trying to drag one out of us. "Anyhow I thought promoting patriotic values was terribly un-PC!!" - precisely. For people who ban Christmas book displays in libraries because it might offend Jews or Muslims, a Britain day doesn't sound terribly inoffensive. "Let us have a national 'Freedom Day'. This could be held every year on the date that Blair finally goes....What other event could be so unifying an act within the United Kingdom." - ha ha! I cannot think of anything else that would unite us more.

I have may overreacted slightly to this. Check back in a few hours to see if I have calmed down... or not. Also also also: Olympic logo - CRAP. Bloody awful. Nothing to do with London or the Olympics. Looks like a three-year-old sat down with a sodding crayon.

Alternative ones here and here.

Ones I like:
First lot - 1, 6, 10
A second helping - 1, 2, (6), 8, and 11 very much so!

Edit: This is a bit sinister, isn't it? Like a cross between a car advert and a horror film.

I dream my dreams away... [4th. Jun, 2007|09:19 pm]

News! I have a stalker! *waves* Hello Gibbon-Posture!

Anyway. Pyjama day today. More Biology revision (in pyjamas). Did a whole exam but then when I tried to mark it I found I was missing half the answers! What, oh what, to do? I sent a general cry of alarm on facebook, in the form of a note which was fascinatingly headed with "Help for Bio revision". Something that sounds that interesting was sure to elicit thousands, nay millions, of replies but no one has the answers to question three, although I have now managed to mark question two.

Finished Michael Palin's diaries (at last!). In pyjamas, of course. I can hardly remember the beginning as I started it so long ago hat I may or may not read the first hundred or so pages again. Spent some time with the index looking up all the Goodies references. Geek? Yep.

Bought 'Underneath the Arches' and 'Leaning on a Lamppost' from iTunes. Started an ISIHAC playlist, containing songs from Pick Up Song. It'd be too confusing to have ones from One Song to the Tune of Another. Looked for 'The Archers Theme Tune', just out of interest, but they don't have it. Also looked for 'Por Onde Andara Stephen Fry' - more on that later...

Flea-treated the cats, still in pyjamas. It wasn't even the pills! Just little drops of liquid in the skin at the back of their necks, but Atticus was trembling like a badly contructed card house in an earthquake.

Got dressed!

Watched two of Stephen Fry's appearances on HIGNFY on Youtube. I have now watch all The Goodies catastrophegoodies has uploaded so far, so must look further afield to satisfy my comedy-lust. (That possibly came out directed slightly wrong.) They played a bit of this song, 'Por Onde Andara Stephen Fry', with English subtitles, and I'm desperate to get hold of it. What with my amazing Spanish-speaking skills and all maybe I could translate it as practice in the holidays. OK, you got me. It's just because it's a cool song about Stephen Fry. Which reminds me: I watched the extended HIGNFY from last night this morning (I had recorded it). Very funny. Australian guy puts his foot in it rather. Not sure if he's the same Aussie guy who was on Mock the Week (Youtube, ily) and only has one real foot. If so - how witty I am. If not - oh well.

Food related news: Mum bought croutons. At last! No coleslaw, though. Tragedy after tragedy unfolds... first the exams and now no coleslaw.

This is a slightly longer entry than intended. I do tend to talk too much sometimes. It's just that when I get going I can't stop and tend to meander around, saying things. Speaking of which (randomness alert) the ISIHAC I went to was broadcast today! Yay! Very funny - although no Happy Birthday song.

SHUT UP, SUZIE. I will stop talking... now.

Period. Erk.

I was sitting in the sitting room with my mum having just asked her for more painkillers. She was suggesting alternative treatments.

M: Perhaps we should try some brandy or smelling salts.
S: Or leeches!
(Enter dad, not knowing we were talking about peroids)
D: What's going on?
M: Suzie's not well and we're tryng to cure her.
D: Ah... how about bleeding?

At which point we burst out laughing, much to the bemusement of my dear old father. Bleeding... oh, the irony...

Saw King Lear yesterday. It was great. Now that is Shakespeare, not that crappy film. SUA was boring, but only because we'd already seen it all when we went last year. Very odd without cats. 6 books came today. Brilliant.

How lovely it is to have a tidy room. I can at last walk from one end to the other in a straight line and no longer need fear hearing cracks under my feet as I pick my way across the piles of junk. Watched "The Incredible Theft" at teatime with blueberry muffins (which I helped make). It's the one where Hastings and Japp have to share a hotel room - "Look out lads! he's got a blamange!" Sheer genius. Productive Chemistry revision session with Aliki today. First proper revision I have done for any of the exams. I must revise more, though. The harder ones are coming up fast. I have also chanced upon an excellent deal with my parents. I found two Goodies books for £3.50 (inc P&P) on ebay and mum said she'd buy them for me if I tidied a part of the morning room. I sense this could be a productive business relationship. I have also had a set of six old comedy books (HIGNFY, Smith & Jones, Allo Allo, Jeremy Hardy and Fry & Laurie. But that's only five! The other one is of a strange show called Paul and Pauline, which I vaguely recognise in a "I've never heard of it" kind of way. Domestic chores abound for the next few days to earn those, I think.

That asinie brother of mine is being argumentative again. I do wish he'd just shut up and get on with things.

Decisions on bathroom progresing well. Slight opposition from one party and doubts expressed by another not hindering things too much.

SHHS called. Apparently I can't swop English for Biology because they're in "the same teaching block". BOLLOCKS TO THAT. You're telling me that absolutely nobody does English and Biology? I am so pissed off with them. I DON'T WANT TO DO ENGLISH. I WANT TO DO BIOLOGY.

Edit: Aliki has pointed out that I may or may not have become confused. I think it should be "in different teaching blocks". Apologies to anyone whose fabric of life has been destroyed due to this :D
