    Hey you two. I didn't get a chance to come online yesterday - was up at half six, spent the day at school with Greg to revise, had the exam, came home, went straight to Helen's, got ready, went to prom, came back, and slept.

    That was my day: the condensced version.

    Sorry to hear your exam was so bad, Craghyrax . I'm sure you've done well, though... as my teacher said, the harder you found it, the better you've done.

    It's a twisted logic, I'll admit, but if I put my belief in it, it means I've done absolutely wonderful this month :p:. My synoptic could have been worse... guess what came up as the essay?

    NITROGEN! I wrote five sides on it. My wrist still hurts lol. The question was:

    "Describe how nitrogen-containing compounds are taken in, and metabolised by, animals and plants" or words to that effect. The other option was about polymers found in biology... but I didn't have as much to say about those!

    In any case, the rest of the exams, question-wise, was... er... interesting. There were a couple of questions which stumped me a little bit, but I gave an answer to everything so we shall see. Like you, that's it for me and A2 bio!

    Just chemistry to go, now...

    And Steph: I haven't listened to the CD yet, but I'll let you know what I think of it when I do. Thanks very much for bringing it! Told you my methods work :ninja:.

    :RESPECT:! That's ALOT to write on Nitrogen! I would have chosen the polymer question myself (but then I have just read my Biochem textbook for Monday...)

    And Steph.. RumenReticulumOmasumAbomasum didn't come up for me either, after learning it inside and out :mad: ..

    I did mention the cow being a ruminant and thus having microorganisms to aid in cellulose digestion (who produce ammonia --ornithine--> urea ----> further metabolism) and I toyed with the idea of naming the four stomachs...

    I didn't, though. Probably because, unlike you two, I didn't bother to memorise them :p:.

    Don't forget the urea that cows include in their saliva to provide the bacteria with a source of nitrogen for protein synthesis!!!

    I've nearly finished this sci fi book by Ursula Le Guin. Its called 'Four ways to Forgiveness'. It confirms that I really enjoy Le Guin as an authoress, and I'd read more of her if the library made that an option...lol. Time to hit the charity shops!

    Four ways to Forgiveness was a good deal more raunchy than Earthsea though...

    Synopsis is rather hard.. its four separate short stories, but all set on the same universe so that they compliment eachother and tie together eventually in terms of theme. Its just stories of diff characters' lives basically, and it really works.. very absorbing.. very well written. Romantic, all four. It is a bit obsessed with sensuality and sex though..:rolleyes: That's all.

    :hmmmm: Sounds a little similar to one of my techniques in how some of my stories are but other than that I don't think that the plot is something that I'd enjoy. Thanks for the synopsis though!
