Oooh, I like your picture nooni, I love doing 'arty' stuff with photos. I had a Paint Shop Pro trial that lasted a year longer than it should have.. but then it suddenly stopped working. Wah. So now I rely on Paint.
Oh, and thanks for all the nice comments about the hair, everybody. Although, I have to add.. it's not like it's particularly unique, if you get what I mean. It's not like there are another 1.6 billion people about there with black hair. Okay, maybe not everyone grows their hair v. long, but still.. you get the picture.
Oh, and my arms and legs TOTALLY ache from 2 hours of badminton on Sunday. Plus, I did something to my knee and now it really hurts when I kneel down. And maybe I'm a bit insane to do 2 hours of dance on Friday, then 2 hours of badminton on Sunday..... I'm so going to die of exhaustion.
Plus, the procrastination thing is TOTALLY happening. I mean, my biology practical (no, noo, NOOO!!!) is tomorrow, and I just did my reading for it this evening. And a very half-assed attempt at doing some preparation for it. And WHY did the teachers set such a weird, NON-QUANTITATIVE experiment? Seriously, it isn't quantitative! And the whole C section of the mark is about how you can make the experiment quantitative! Argh!! There's a lot of hatred for this at the moment.
Plus, it's about wine-making. So I go on wikipedia and read all about the different kinds of hops and malts they use for making beer, and the different kinds of wines and stuff. I started writing about how Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a top-fermenting yeast and stuff like that. Which isn't on the A-Level syllabus (and hence won't get me any marks)I get distracted too easily.
Ooh, and I haven't posted/read TSR for, like, 2 days. That's a new record for me! It was because my free time was dedicated to reading a really, really good book (but irrelevant to my A-Levels, dammit, unless there's an A-Level on BDSM prostitution) called Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey. I really enjoyed this book. My favourite fantasy author's Terry Goodkind, and if you like him, you'll like Carey.
It's got a celibate warrior-priest in it, who's got long blond hair and blue eyes. And fights like flowing water.
Oh, and I really, really MUST read Jane Eyre now. So guilty that I haven't read it! I heard about this series of documentaries on history of romantic fiction being made for BBC4 and how they were looking for 'real romance readers' etc. to express some opinions, so I got in touch and they asked me a few questions, to which I wrote a HUGE email back writing far more than they'd ever want!
Maybe I'm self-obsessed. I love talking about me too much.
