I got A*A*A*B in my A levels today.
Anyone else smug about anything?
and i haven't even posted in the thread
Well done mate. I'm still smug about my exam results and degree marks.
I didn't do any work for it.
moving in properly on monday!
I was saving it for tomorrow but I'm happy to unleash it now.
*I really don't but i'm thinking of one fast, awright?
Now you can watch all those Luis Bunuel movies and actually become my clone. (You off to uni this year?)
I don't know anything about Luis Bunuel...
seeing as we seem to share a favourite everything else, worth a shot!
^^^a good (40 mins long) place to start. DON'T READ THE SUMMARY BENEATH. later you can get to the really sublime shit (basically The Exterminating Angel plus the last 3 movies he did - The Discreet Charm Of The Bourgeoise, The Phantom Of Liberty (imagine a weirder Monty Python) and above all That Obscure Object Of Desire)
I thought that was pretty funny...
Unfortunately by the time I'd found a version that played I'd accidentally read a summary of it, but it was great, thanks :)
I'm not smug about anything, I just pretend to be.
celebrated by eating a multipack of crisps and a whole goat's cheese for lunch <3
the only thing I fight is the surplus of snack foods in my office
I had lovely raw tuna crusted with toasted sesame and a pickled vegetable salad. It was dreamy.
#Non smug bit follows: Then I got back to my desk and immediately realised that I had left my purse* in the restaurant and had to go back and they all laughed at me and then i nearly got hit by a scooter crossing the road because I was smarting and saying bad words under my breath. Scooter beeped and went to give it the Viccy and nearly droped my bag in a puddle. I should really just go back to bed today. I probably have raw tuna poisoning anyway.
*scabby falling-apart oystercard holder in which I put all of my important thigns
can’t feel too smug about mine, was saved by my as grades being high enough for me to mess these exams up. i got in though, and i just phoned my gran and she called me lovey-duck and started crying
what are you going to do?
welcome to the boards, you seem nice
hey boggins you ever played 'give me your home address?'
Balonz, you're on top form today.
What are you going to do?
really looking forward to it
saw up there you said you were going to bristol – i applied there in a fit of potential homesickness but decided it wasn’t a good idea. it’s a great place though, you’ll love it.
I've never been to Edinburgh, but I imagine it is a great place as well
Then boston for 5 days. Fly home, back for two weeks then a week in berlin.
I've NEARLY bought a flat but it's not done yet so I'll save my smugness still then.
I've not eaten any wheat or dairy products since Sunday (healing myself after a stomach bug). But it's made me feel really good and has been quite easy to do, so I've decided to keep it up and only have cheese/chocolate etc at the weekends.
Offering me a new job and a 20% raise. Also im sat in a mountain lodge overlooking Glen Coe and Ive just had scampi and there was like 15 scampis on the plate.
Let's hope you follow on in the future in whatever it is you're doing. I assume you're going to do a degree, good luck! My degree, may have aided slightly in getting me my job, but the truth of the matter is I was offered the job at the end of my first year and it was all under the assumption I would get a degree and even then I don't think it would have mattered. Bottom line, my degree is now worthless.
they are awesome
I miss you
I miss you too babes. Do you ever go on memory drives around Rugby?
so yes <3
Daventry is shit though. You're living in London now, right?
Nope, I left university (very very west london) a while ago now. I'm now based 1 mile from stone henge. On leave at the moment though hence why i'm at my parents.
I like stone henge. If you're ever in Brighton let me know :)
likewise if you're at the henge!
this is pretty fucking cool. they were INCENDIARY at Supersonic last year.
(they were really good, though).
I missed all the good gigs :(
smugness slightly nullified by the fact that my even more smug arch-rival broke the all-time score record over 8 games on yesterday's show.
he's been sending female fans creepy messages on Twitter though so hopefully he'll be banned from the series finals.
I'm the awkward-looking girl with a massive fringe whose glasses look fake (they're not).
had a run in with this chump on twitter myself. subtweeted something saying how good he was and he favourited it p. much straight away. so i called him out on his twitter etiquette:
seems dylan from countdown has a twitter account that consists exclusively of him instantly retweeting subtweets about him. creepy
and he unfavourited the original tweet
in person, he's quiet, intensely competitive and smug.
online, he's basically a sociopathic (albeit incredibly quotable) Zoolander. legit quotes include "Not to point a nasty finger at you, but you're one of the few who don't find me absolutely gorgeous", "I'm the [Countdown] champion of looks" and "I don't know how I'm still a virgin, with a face like this I should have lost it at 12".
it's been very difficult not tweeting everyone he's retweeted, warning them about him.
where are these quotes from?
the other two are from my Facebook conversations with him, before I had to block him because he was getting too creepy - him asking if I would find a guy more attractive if they took "male 'growth' supplements" and then sending me a link for such things was the last straw.
