    Yeah same I want Thursday so bad that I've adopted some logic to make the wait go faster. For me nights usually fly by, so I end up sleeping late and waking up in the afternoon. By the the day is practically over. So like at the moment its six, Tuesday is pretty much over, in that it's night time soon and when I wake up tomorrow Wednesday will be practically over after a few hours it will be Thursday, broken logic maybe. But it makes me feel like the days are going by faster.
    Yeahh I get what you mean, I may try that, however I have to be up at 6:15 tomorrow morning because I'm taking my dad to work so that I can have the car. I'll go back to sleep though :P

    Bernadette is one of the few new characters I can stand. What upsets me is that, at the start, the show was geared to have jokes for nerds; jokes about trigonometric functions, calculus and actual Physics. These have been slowly phased out and the show has turned into jokes about nerds. Essentially I feel that when the show exploded into popularity it felt like it needed to stay there and began catering to the lowest common denominator. I would like episodes that are less of "Oh, he looks stupid recording himself with flags, hurr durr" and more genuinely funny scientific or mathematical jokes. The last one I can remember was in season 4: "What would you be if you were attached to a plane wrapped heligally around an axis? Screwed! There you go then."
    I kind of agree, but I never really felt the 'smart' jokes were believable anyway, and really made me think less of Sheldon. "I feel like an inverse tangent function approaching an asymptote!" = Stuck. What? Why need it be inverse, or even a tangent function? :/

    I have to say that I don't know what I'd do in such a situation, and I can see the pros and cons of both options.
    Good luck anyway though, hopefully you'll have done better than you think anyway!
    thank you! hopefully all this worrying is for nothing!

    Nice. I am still not sure whether I want to do theoretical physics or maths yet, but at Queens as well

    I would be happy with a B in geography after how I messed up one of the exams My other targets are high though
    I might see you at Elms village(?) at some point, you just won't know who I am and vice versa haha. Oh Theoretical sounds interesting. I was looking at Applied Maths with physics myself but we'll see what I get....

    You'll get an A at least, the scaling should be generous...

    Interesting distraction. I hope it's not only for that reason...
    it's not :P me and my girlfriend are getting them done together before we go to uni but it gets me out of the house and away from freaking out for a while :P

    because having someone come at your areola with a needle is an excellent way to stop freaking out :rolleyes:

    Yeah, the thing is Bernadette is alright, I just preferred the Howard of season 1 and 2 who'd hit on anything with a pulse...his chat up lines were first class! .
    The fact that the show has deviated from what it was originally is really annoying. I completely agree with the bit in bold. The show used to stand out because of those jokes, it was different. Now its just too mainstream and bleurgh for lack of a better term.
    Leonard's become awfully mundane through the seasons as well.

    Oh well, it was nice while it lasted (good upto season 3ish).
    I'm off to start re-watching House from the start, that show never disappointed .
