Let me hear you say it  

So today is ... Tuesday ... and I start college on ... Monday ... and the Med faculty has not yet a) been assigned rooms and lecture halls b) finalised the booklist c) formalised the timetable or d) got their shit together at all. Understandable, though. They only had -- what? -- four months to do it. How could anybody be expected to achieve anything in such a tiny, small, infinitesimal period of time?


Hotmail has frozen on me again, so I can't access my email at all. Apologies for my no-show on replies. Hotmail really is made of suck, but I hate navigating gmail, so ...

The username things have eyepatches. J'approve. I cannot cut and paste with the new format. Je not approve. At all.

I've felt like doing this for a while and I am now sufficiently bored to do so.

1. Okay, so there was this film. It was about explorers. Possibly one of them was the guy who wrote the Kama Sutra (... or adapted it or wtfever), or possibly they were just popping along to find a lake that no one had found before except the native people who didn't count. In any case, Explorer Mk1 contracts a fever and in the midst of it throws the lips on Explorer Mk2. My father put on his Confucius face and said, "Oh, so that's how it is." And my mind went, "Oh. So that's how it is."

2. Jilly Cooper's Apassionata contains a storyline about a pretty boy pianist who gets his groove on with a hot male ballerina, whilst still being a champion Nile-backstroke swimmer. The rest of the story was interchangable with all those other ones about horses. This part stuck with me. Even at the time I found it roughly twenty times more interesting than anything else that was happening (and a lot else was happening. It's a Jilly Cooper for Christ's sake).

3. In American ... something or other with the cute guy from Lost/Cheaper by the Dozen/Life as a House, I was annoyed when the cross-dresser turned out to be a girl after all. I much preferred Cute Guy being, well, gay.

The end.

...dude, the Arts weren't so bad the whole time, after all. *blinks* Who knew?

Oh, Young Americans. It was on TV a while back, wasn't it? Yeah, I was bitterly disappointed when the cross-dresser turned out to be a girl all along because that was the only reason I watched it. All those wrenching am I gay or not? moments were great. And then they spoiled it all. :( *sigh*

Was a good few years back, now. Early secondary school, I'm pretty sure? I know I wasn't on the internet by then, anyway. :D

Yeah, the 'I'm dressing as a boy to piss off my mom' was so random and stupid. Grr, America.

Oh, if you think my faculty is bad ... this year, the Arts people decided that registering wasn't such a big deal really. The computers were down and people couldn't log on during the assigned period, so they said "Hey, register whenever you feel like! Just pop over to campus!"

... all, what, five hundred of them. [facepalm]

AHAHAHAHA. FOR REAL? Looks like I picked a good time to get out. :D That said, my friends who are doing MAs still haven't even got their fee forms. *sighs*

According to my in-Arts flatmate, yup. It's almost criminally lax, really. One thing to not have tutorials or something sorted out -- although really, at this level! -- but not to fix up registration or freakin' timetables ... [grinds teeth]

You'd think they'd realise by now that sorting all this stuff out before now means less headaches when a couple of hundred pissed-off students start asking what the hell is going on. :|

That's it!! Ooooh, be still my beating heart -- Ian Somerhalder is SUCH a babe. [swoons] Those lips! Those eyes! I only kept watching Cheaper by the Dozen 'cause he was in it.

Still, I held onto the fact that that Hamilton kissed Jake thinking she was a he.

I remember that! He said 'OMG I MUST BE GAY' and my brain cautiously went "... yay?"

By the time I got around to watching QaF, I was too well versed in all that. Also remember an ep of Little Britain in the gay's village and this old guy mentions that 'I quite fancy a spot of fisting' and I thought 'It's not right that I know what that is' and 'oh dear.'

You've got to laugh ... I wonder does anyone actually like to rim, as the line ran in the American version. Ehehehe. Sometimes I wonder what misfortunate man is ever going to marry me and put up with all this stuff in my head!

YES YES YES! Only, you have booklists -- far too many, I imagine -- and I'm supposed to rock up to lectures without even knowing what they're on. OR WHERE THEY ARE OMG.

...I'm not supposed own/have read the books on my booklist, am I?

Oh, convulsive shuddering, how I have missed you!

*abrupt delurking*

I just need to share this knowledge, for that movie was a revelation for me as well.
It's called "Mountains of the Moon"

[facepalm] I know right. Which reminds me, I really must check my student email to see if, eg, they have posted any sort of venue for Monday. For all I know we're supposed to be in the Geography building (ie the most evil place on campus TM!!)

Word. ♥
