I'm in Spain

"I brought you a present."
Dad proffers a pizza cutter. It has come free with wine. We already own three.
"No, thank you."
"Also there are some of these." Two wine coolers. Also free with alcohol.
"Er. You can buy those at home."
Later; I'm packing. He brings in eight steak knives. I put them in my bag, resigned.
(They did not come free with the wine).

every little

Just had an e-mail from law college reminding us that Tesco are running a mock assessment centre next month. They have received very few applications so we're being urged to apply.

The reason no-one has applied is that this is a really, really stupid idea. I'm meant to waste my time filling out a moronic form for a MOCK interview? I'm supposed to compete for a PRETEND JOB? As if making applications for real training contracts wasn't time-consuming and tiring enough.

Sorry about the absence. etc. I had a week off last week and spent most of it in the country, where the internet connection is erratic at best.

I'm not feeling quite with it at the moment though typically I cannot work out why.

Saw Avatar last night, which was a waste of three hours. EQ and I started sniggering uncontrollably in the last third. Terrible story, terrible script. Pretty multicoloured things, though; just had a text from AM I dreamt I was in a world of glowsticks last night.

let it go

This Too Shall Pass:

reminds me of something my Dad always says nothing really matters. and, in the end, nothing matters at all.

We are going, today! After my last exam(s)! It is good.

I forgot to post yesterday. I was packing. I have too many clothes bundled into my little suitcase. Boyfriend rang this morning while I was still in bed and I confessed to this. He fully supported the decision to take too much stuff because "it's nice to have choices" and this is why he is brilliant; even though it is clearly deranged to take eight dresses and two pairs of shoes and two jumpers and a skirt and and and etc for three days away he just says what he knows he should and everyone is happy.

Definitely not enough punctuation in that last sentence.

To revision! And making myself look chic and so on.

Three and a half hour exams are quite a killer. Too many numbers and a drafting question that didn't require you to draft anything. Perhaps didn't go as well as it might.

It's just gone eight but I'm going to take my make up off and go to bed. Really looking forward to a gym session tomorrow.

pretty lovely Ladytron-esque voice (though a bit younger and softer) and gorgeous sparkly electronic backing.
Overtones of Charlotte Gainsbourg and Bat for Lashes as well.

Yay for music. How is she not signed?
