Indeed Jones, indeed! I've been stuck in a loop of ringing people trying to get some information as to WHY I got this letter, and I've got nowhere! Harrumph.

And our bloomin oven's broken, which let me tell you is REALLY testing the depths of mine and Sarah's culinary skills.... Laughing

Ahhh have been majorly annoyed by coursework for English Lit. My lecturer took me out of class (to my confusion) to discuss the grade I'm getting. The two pieces of coursework came out at an E (an E! Evil or Very Mad ) so I have to re-jig everything, maybe having to write them again. They took me ages and my energy was drained. I was glad when I'd finished them and thought I'd never see them again, but I have until Tuesday Crying or Very sad , which seems like ages, but I also have to do after prep for my photography exam and revise for three other subjects. However, she was really nice about it and gave me advice, so I was grateful, but still pissed. Unfortunately I feel really down about it and my confidence is just annihilated. If I can't write two bloody coursework essays at a C/B level, then how can I study it in Uni?

bluejayway...your rant is bringing me waaay back! Used to be an English Lit major and to this day I have flashbacks about the papers and exams from those courses. I had a particularly evil prof named Dr. Clasby and I swear I was THIS CLOSE to a nervous breakdown after I finished his class. Good times...good times... Laughing

Some IDIOT in Holland ruined Queens Day (Holland's best public holiday of the year) yesterday by driving at full speed into a crowd of spectators, killing 5 people and seriously injuring 14.
Unbelieveable... No

I agree Jones. That was so bad, you really have to wonder what goes on in peoples heads. What a shame for all those innocent people and their families. I know the world is a shocking place, but it always frustrates me when these nutcases go and ruin lives completley unnecessarily.

I hate to say it, but living where I do, there is a pretty high rate of daily crazy happening. I was amazed to see what happened in Holland, but then again I live less than 5 miles away from a street where a guy shot and killed his family and himself after losing his job. It's absolutely insane how things are, and how common these kinds of incidents have become (at least over here).

Was in Matalan yesterday looking for shoes for an end of year masquerade ball. Found my dream shoes and went to show my sister. About half way home feeling very pleased, I asked my Dad where the three tubs of that special tea from Wittard's was. He said he didn't have it, neither did my sister and to my horror, I'd left them in the shop, by the shoe bit. My sister had bought them, but wasn't really mad (I was it was 12!)
Ah well least I got the shoes and hopefully I can buy the next lot next week Surprised

Hey guys. Just wanna ask. How many of you find it the most annoying thing in the world when you have something amazing on Ebay, you bid and some guy comes along a few seconds later, normally a previous bidder, and outbids you? I am currently bidding for a limited edition signed cd and that just happened. However, I have just bid again and he hasn't outbid me....yet. This means war Razz
