I blame myself.

i'm going to throw him out. Assert my authority.
DO A FOLEY
I blame you too
Your username sounds like a student-run paper and no one wants to touch ANY of that.
now give us a world renowned Splenic_Artery medical fact before I lose my patience.
Not so much a fact, but a very interesting idea
Post 9-11 there was a significant increase in the number of male miscarriages in america, even in regions geographically isolated from NY. Interstingly, there is this hypothesis that suggests its incidence is due to some sort of primitive idea - in times of perceived danger - males are a burden to soceity - they take up too much space, eat too much food - and so something in the gestation makes it very hard for males to be born - only the strongest will survive...
in times of danger it is better to have a few stronge males and loads of women.
Same thing was found in the dutch drought in the 1800's - when the drought hit, massive miscarriages of males only
And that more males die in the period immediately after birth, evening up the discrepancy?
I'm also re-reading my postgrad applications that are to be sent out tomorrow and they're absolutely terrifying me, I'm sure I've done something wrong or I've forgotten something important.
what sort of stuff are you applying for?
City University, Cardiff University, London College of Communication. City is the best in the country by any reckoning and is extremely competitive - I'm hoping that my CV is impressive enough to compensate for fucking up my BA and getting a 2:2.
Cardiff is much more likely (minimum 2:2 instead of 2:1 plus they look at writing samples, unlike City) and is meant to be the second-best in the country from talking to people in the industry, but I'm not hugely keen on the idea of living in Cardiff if I do get in. Hence LCC, it's meant to be pretty good, if not world beating, but on the plus side I'd be living in London which is something I've been wanting to do for a loooong time.
But then, I'm moving to London anyway in the next week or so (as long as I find a room), so never know, might hate it in the end and end up wanting to live some place a bit less hectic. That's assuming I'll get in. Oh god.
i remember the thread, just didn't remember who it was that posted it. soz.
best of luck anyway!
I almost went to Cardiff as an undergrad back in '06, but didn't really take to the city that well. In retrospect I was probably wrong, as my housemate's from there and from what he says it's lovely.
I've been using megaupload for season 6, torrents r too slow + i don't like streaming
Always pretty reliable, good range of other shows as well, and as long you get get a Rapidshare account (like I did) it's mega quick.
And if there's 4 or 5 parts you're only looking at half an hour tops I guess.
I dunno, I just caved one time a couple years back and paid for a month of rapidshare, and it was so much easier than anything else (including torrents) that I just figured it was worth the relatively small investment.
does the job for me!
Tonight's episode is called "LIghthouse" I hope it isn't overly Temple-dudes.
Have you read this? http://neverseenlost.wordpress.com :D
also it is clearly tinychat that is to blame.
that and the fact that the buses aren't running yet. and tinychat is dead as well. i wonder are their any wine bars opened at this time of night?
well live video>>> tinychat so nar
almost as much of a charade as this charade
Have to start getting up at 8am again as of Thursday. DO NOT WANT.
it is looking way way unlikely. god damn my 15 hour sleep last night :(
now look at you, carrerist
hahah sole. i'd like to be a sole. swimmy swim swim.
So I need to find a room in London, but no luck so far. Moving back in with my parents tomorrow and hope to find some place of my own within the week.
so may as well chirp in with a good luck
i'm off to london tomorrow too......
Why? And for how long?
visiting boyfriend. no idea what the plans are, hopefully seeing xiu xiu on friday night but it isn't a cert. do you have plans?
No plans for the evenings though - could contact you if I'm in the city and alone and bored? Sound like a potential plan?
i have guestlist for cymbals eat guitars tomorrow night but dunno if i will go...
I definitely can't do anything tomorrow, my first day is Thursday and I need to spend tomorrow (after I've sent off my uni applications) writing up and tightening up the reviews I've been assigned to come into the first day with.
(we supported them @ the cockpit - lovely guys!) and erm not sure what my plans are after meeting a friend for a pint. i'm megabusing it down so will be dead tired, too.
where's the internship?
You know that really hungover/hungry feeling you get after a night on the sauce? It's still there and kinda keeping me up and awake. Fuck!
I got to bed at 8am, after routine checks at ospital took fucking hours and I got home at 7
Praising your glorious dayshift of supremacy in his majestic sky blimp!
And seeing as I am worming my way towards God of dayshift, it's ALL FALLING IN TO PLACE.
I've seen the Xylopwn bumper stickers on your car.
you must be confusing me with the other handsome man on here
ONLY handsome man here.
VOTE XYLO FOR SUPREMACY.
So I haven't been able to manage more than about an hour at the start of the day (midnightish on the forums).
Not that I'll have been missed, mind.
