Dear Icky Virus

Dear Icky Virus,

You, and your fellow nucleus-deprived friends, have made the last month kind of miserable. Please go away, or evolve to the point where I can kill you with antibiotics.

No love at all,
A miserably sniffling Claire.

So I have a fair amount of stuff on my desk. Most of it is either paper based, or computer related... there are also some apples, my keys and some dressmakers pins.

I knock one of these items in my lap. Guess which one.

My hands and legs now have a million new holes in :(


"Grab the nearest book. Find the 5th sentence on page 23. Append it to the paragraph below. Append your name to the list below of people who have contributed to the paragraph. Post the result to your LJ."

They also talk of our being guilty of injustice, and their being the victims of an unjustifiable war. Brandy, and Tom got increasingly close-mouthed and sour. Although a certain sense of tripartite society survived down to Christian times, the three classes described in the Eddic poem "Rigdthula" bear little resemblance to Dumezil's three. It is often argued, and still oftener thought, that none but bad men would desire to weaken these salutary beliefs; and there can be nothing wrong,it is thought, in restraining bad men, and prohibiting what only such men would wish to practice. At its nearest point the wall was little more than one league from the City, and that was south-eastward. When he saw Jack Hare jump towards the fire, and the Practical Man brandishing the toasting-fork, Sir Isaac grabbed the strings of gravitational force that bound Jack to his destiny and PULLED--- That's a seventy-four gun privateer, besides. To honour a group of British nobles, treacherously slain at a conference by Hengist's guards, Aurelius decides to erect a great monument near Amesbury. That being so, he did not chortle when he went upstairs. Let stand. This ensures that when the garbage collector runs, it has complete access to the memory in the heap and can perform its tasks safely without the threat of being preempted by another thread. And then you may begin to laugh. The data are stored in Column 1 and renamed "Age." Pull your hand back. I don't remember that any secrets were revealed to me, nor do I remember any avid curiosity on my part to learn something I wasn't supposed to--perhaps I was too young to know what to listen for. You don't remember how awful it is being normal. Highlight the desired state tax table and press Enter. Abraham had now reached a ripe old age, and the LORD had blessed him in every way. This doesn't alter either string, any more than 2+3 alters either 2 or 3. And I will say firmly that it is the author who says, "One does feel," who is really an egoist; and the author who says, "I believe," who is not an egoist. I too have noticed symptoms of the same sort of thing, a slightly put-on manner of affectation, perhaps a sort of aftermath of his fine performance in the School Play. Until the police killed all of her fish by emptying ashtrays into the tanks, Mrs. Bond had raised and sold tropical fish. There was a silence at the other end of the line then a woman's voice said 'You have reached the BT Cellnet answering service'. 'Thank you'. But if it had been thrown into the pool, and held below the water in the darkness by a stronger swimmer... 'And then I'll come home and cry 'Bianca, Bianca', and you'll be gone, and no one will know where you went.' Until that moment, I would have said that the old town was established, settled, mature. The pattern rule target must start with the prefix and end with the suffix (if they exist). If we track him down and point a musket at him, it should convince him that it's time for him to move on, I hope. We landed at one p.m., having left Graciosa at eleven. Since it is an abstraction rather than an actual account, in the present chapter I will discuss in detail each common element, giving many examples. And the crowning light of the chandelier was merciless or splendid depending entirely on one's point of view.

NaNoWriMo 2008

Hi all,

Sign ups for NaNo 2008 (November version) begin on October 1st. I had promised myself that the meaning behind my July distrationary novel was so that I would not feel compelled to take part. So I've pretty much decided that that idea is out of the window - after all what could make my final year of university more fun than trying to hold a part-time job and write a novel at the same time?

I know - sounds like awesome fun.

And I even want the T-Shirt (and coffee mug) to go with my descent into madness. I'm just trying to see if they deliver to England... which can wait a while actually because I am doing course related printing.

Although now I am at the computer I have a ridiculous urge to do the Twilight sims recap... because witches sparkle... and this of course screamed 'sparkle vampires' at me.

Back to printing.

Fandom you never disappoint

Given my obssessive love for formula one I was really surprised when I realised I didn't have any LJ comms keeping me up to date with happenings and news stories that I may otherwise miss. (Also since when do I use LJ to keep up with everything?)

One small google search later and I find f1slash - not quite what I was after... Fandom amuses me to know end, although to be fair the amount of innuendo that MattMatt, Alex and I can wring out of the race commmentry practically makes it canon. (James Allen = World's Biggest Slasher?) But still a little weird. And there is no way I am going to be able to watch the qualifying/race today/tomorrow without giggling a lot.

Aside from Formula 1 - Prison Break is so much love. I had never seen it until about a week ago and then I watched some when I was home in Hull. It is made of amazing. I am in love with both Michael (because hello, those eyes?) and Lincoln (because he is made of fit)... Blah enough fangirl for now. Qualifying is on...

Just as I was about to post Piquet ran over a bird...? At least I think he did... Muppet.

Impulse Buying

I have a slight issue at times... which can become a big issue at other times... in that once I decide I want something I will get it.

Previous things to fall under this category have included books (not too bad), computer games of all varieties (a little worse), DVDs, an iPod, and a new graphics card for my computer (all of which can be quite damaging to the bank balance).

Did I mention F1 tickets?

I did a bad thing this morning... I bought a baby laptop (notebook type thing that is really small and cute). This is not good for the bank balance - although it wasn't as expensive as real laptops, and it will be useful for lectures (see the reasoning with myself). Plus I can't really play games on it so it might even be better for working on.

I hate the way I justify such things to myself. Given that my computer works perfectly that is...

I do kinda love it though. Just don't mention it to my mum - she'll kill me... I wonder how long it has to be before she finds out?

I just remembered that my PS3 was more expensive... so this isn't my worst impulse buy ever... Still, I should know better - the whole point of me getting a job was to save money not spend more.
