|11:28 pm - Blah-iness.|
Am feeling very blah right now. Not sick blah, just lack of enthusiasm blah. Very apathetic, and haven't the faintest idea why. Though the thing about apathy -> not caring very much.
So what has been on in my life as of late? Handed in that Maths assignment, to my very great relief - it was the hardest of the Maths ones so far, and I had great difficulty with on eof the wuestions - and am now without assignments. Except that Lit Essay, which I still can't decide which question it should be done on.
Also, was feeling rather bored, so I went to the movies with Rob last evening - it was at Nova, thus cheap on Monday, and we saw H2G2 again. Yayness! Though I am sensing some serious stuff going on with Ford and Arthur - I swear, there is more Chemstry between the two, than there is between Ford and Trillian. It's sort of sweet. "I have a spaceman too."
Then we went to a pub for cheap beer, and conversation with assorted Foulies. Vaguely amusing, even if I didn't drink much (I am not a beer person).
Oh, and today I had my first dinner on high table. Which wasn't really all that exciting, actually. They had wine, they had fancy plates, they had better service, but otherwise rather blah. Perhaps the source of the mood.
"Is your belly-button shiny, or is it just me?"
Random Psych Quotes: (So frequent, they now get their own category!)
"It's actually really, really simple. Sort of."
"Yeah, well, it's kind of between weak and stong - it's kind of weaky-strong."
"These are clearly experiments that are not done these days, because of things called 'Ethics.' You might have heard of them."
About Electric shock testing
"You might not know this, but electric shock is not healthy."
And after this he went on this whole thing about the end of RotJ, and about how Darth Vader would measure the difference between different strengths of electric shock. Which culminated in this line:
(In Vader voice) "Luke,....Five."
Well, it's this table, see, and it set up on a platform so it's, you know, high.
Seriously, it's where the college heads and tutors and all have dinner at my college. And a group of students gets invited up on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
So you just get to take turns eating the same food at a different table 'of honour' and get wine as well? Yay for free wine!
Yes, muchly. Free wine is always of the good - and it is decent wine, not that cheap rubbish stuff, either.
Blah to your blahiness. I hope it passes.
Your quotes are always funny. My Quote Book is sadly depleted these days what with not being at uni. Bah.
Yeah, well, I like funny quotes. I have a notebook full of stuff, plus hundreds of pages worth on my computer, including all the ones I have posted on my LJ.
You don't see becker_
often enough. He is the source of many quotes for all. I'm surpised he didn't get a mention today.
I don't think I saw him at all yesterday. But yes, he does seem to show up rather frequently among the quotes.

I can empathise with the Maths - I've had a SAC this week for Methods - the context for the question was Mario Kart...
I sympathise about the Maths SAC. Though, Mario Kart? Most random context for Maths work EVER.

Well, we were supposed to graph it up.
It didn't really make sense, though - it ended up looking like a gentle drive, and wasn't a circuit, but that's just me being a little picky...
Bloody Maths teachers. They never think about what they are doing, do they?

Well, at least I didn't have to make a Yoshi-shaped track.

Come to think of it, I haven't played it in a long time.
But a few people had the emulator on their laptops last year, and the Belgian exchange student played it all the time while everyone else in the class watched, instead of working.
I haven't played it in an age either. My sister prefers her X-box these days.
But I applaud your Belgian exchange student and their entertainment value.

I once tried to get a free (or at least, cheap) Xbox from Mark Skaife, but nothing ever eventuated.
Mark Skaife? Isn't he that vaguely famous guy?

Yeah - the HRT driver. He was sponsored by Xbox for a while.
