I'm so glad our stats project is group-work. (Now there is something I never thought I'd say.) Em is a whiz with statistics, so Delly and I can loll about and google marshmallow peeps and other such essential information. I can think of nothing more gross than chocolate-flavoured marshmallow, but oh my god how awesome.

Yesterday the boy I'm madly in love with - that's got really sarcastic at this point, but damn it if I'm coming up with another nickname now - and I were both wearing Calvin Klein underwear. And he was in jeans, for the first time ever. It almost made me rethink the sarcasm of the above statement.

Almost.

Now is the time to mention my lack of an ugly exception. One of the boys in my rotation - in other words, who I've been stuck with for three months - has starting pulling my pigtails in a major way. How do I tell him, politely, to fuck off and die; and no, not if he were the last man on earth and there were no sheep?

Also, did anyone else get 100 pages into Tess of d'Ubervilles and really want to shoot Tess IN THE FACE?

Yes.

Although, a little later, I did want to take an Uzi to Angel Clare, the sanctimonious bastard.

I'm so glad I'm not alone in this. Classic books and I are oil and water, but dammit if I don't try take a match to them anyway.

Is it worth continuing? Or does he have other books that are better?

Ha, it doesn't exactly happen to me a whole hell of a lot. And it's never by anyone I'd like to be hit on. I think that's the story of life, though.

I can see this book being relegated to the abandoned shelf...

Oh god, how bad were they? *winces*

I'd probably say it exactly like that. Of course, I'm also known for occasionally making boys cry, and I'm not sure if you want that kind of rep.

Also, I should probably mention that I am minoring in stats. And what's worse -- I'm doing so because I like it.
XD

(Okay, okay, admittedly it can get tedious... but it's so terribly fascinating and useful!)

I do have people telling me, "GOD, YOU'RE MEAN" about once a day. But I do it behind people's backs because I have this weird moral code that what they don't know won't hurt them. Then there's the whole 'bitch to one, bitch to all' thing - I don't want to put off, say, the boy I'm madly in love with sarcasm sarcasm with my attitude.

Oh, god. YOU.

I should totally try and beg you for help, or something, but like I said: group work! And I don't actually care that I don't understand a THING. And pronounce chi test wrong.

lies damn lies and statistics!?

If you want to like Hardy, give Far from the Madding Crowd a try. Gabriel Oak is an adorable character.

I love the name Gabriel Oak. I'm tempted.

Er. From my experience there is very little you can do with some rudeness especially if he hasn't gotten the point for three months.

Just focus of the boy-you're-not-in-love-with *nodnod*

I love Austen and I stomached the Brontes. I don't know. I found Trollope incredibly difficult too. Maybe it's male authors. Maybe I'm just dumb!

Mmm, well. He's tall, okay? And they were pale stone-washed; not tight-fitting but well-fitting, if you know what I mean. White hemp belt with a metal buckle. NICE. (Not that I was, you know. Taking notes.)

Wait, there are people who didn't want to shoot Tess in the face? I'm not sure I want to admit we might be sharing a planet.

Oh yay! I always feel vaguely ... like a hoodlum when I criticise these people, as if by virtue of being so long dead they're inviolate.

I think you had an awesome post in this very matter: something about needing to write in your forehead: "I have low standards but you still don't fulfill them"

No advice about the boy (I'm starting to think they're just dumb like that). But with regards to Tess, a resounding yes. Angel Clare was no walk in the park either.

Sigh - I always knew.

Meh, I haven't touched it since I made this post. But I bought Middlemarch - not by Hardy! - today, a steal at three quid. I'm hoping it's more on the Austen end of the spectrum. If not, there's always more Georgette Heyers. :D
