Oh, I watched Love Actually
tonight, it was very good. Even if it does have Floppy Haired Man in it and is a romantic comedy, which is a genre I'm not always very fond of.
I've gone to visit my Mum for the weekend. So I'm here in sunny Torbay, where it's raining. It looked nice first thing, but has been raining most of the day. We went to a car boot sale where I found many games which will be very helpful for Hullabaloo
and we looked at a house that Mum is thinking of buying. I liked it. Then we sorted some stuff out. There appear to be many folders of my school and Uni work here. The sane part of my mind is saying to throw it out, but that part as you may have noticed, is very quiet and is usually bullied around by the more vocal irrational part which appears to believe that at some point in my life I may need an 11 year old's attempts at a self-portrait; a tent-tidy made for my GCSE Textiles project: a poorly constructed device which incidentally was incapable of holding anything larger than a toothbrush; degree notes written in an illegible scrawl using an incomprehensible form of shorthand and several other folders of work dating back to my secondary school days. Now I'll have to find somewhere to store these things, Why I can't just throw them out I don't know. I'll end up putting them with my teaching notes in the cupboard under the stairs, noticing them every few years and arguing with myself, and possibly housemates about whether I should throw them out.
Random observation of the day
I got the same as Helen
on that other geek test she did. I don't know why I bother with these tests, I always get the same as Helen. We even got exactly the same IQ on the BBC's test the nation thing. There may be one or two tests we didn't score the same on, but I can't think of any right now. I guess at least this time we didn't get exactly the same score, I got higher actually, don't know if that's true or not really, I never really know what to answer on those things. This was the result on this one in case you didn't see it on Helen's:
|You are 35% geek||You are a geek liaison, which means you go both ways. You can hang out with normal people or you can hang out with geeks which means you often have geeks as friends and/or have a job where you have to mediate between geeks and normal people. This is an important role and one of which you should be proud. In fact, you can make a good deal of money as a translator.
Normal: Tell our geek we need him to work this weekend.
You [to Geek]: We need more than that, Scotty. You'll have to stay until you can squeeze more outta them engines!
Geek [to You]: I'm givin' her all she's got, Captain, but we need more dilithium crystals!
You [to Normal]: He wants to know if he gets overtime.
