    I got a totally unexpected 3000 word essay dumped on me this morning. Just sprung by surprise! The end of term was going to be busy anyways, with paid work as well, so quite how I'm going to fit another essay in I don't know (or how I'm gonna come up with 3000 words about what's a very limited subject indeed, either, tbh)

    What's a Chelsea bun?
    One day next term, I'll buy some, and we can eat them with buttery breakfast. Then you will understand.

    Hmm :lolwut: Chelsea buns are some kind of bready dough rolled out very thin and then soaked in cinnamon, syrup, honey, currants, in in some places covered with icing for a finishing touch.. after the soaking, the dough is rolled up around the gooey stuff so that it looks kind of like a swiss roll. Observe...

    Yes ukebert - another late night, but that was already inevitable because the deadline is tomorrow, Christmas formal is tonight, and I'm a perfectionist :rolleyes: I think I'm ok. I have to:
    1: Rewrite introduction
    2: Lose 400words while also adding some material here or there
    3ort out my haphazard referencing
    4: Include a detailed footnote on Kuhn

    (btw are you bringing brimstone and coming tonight?

    I am petrified that I am going to miss my Tutor meeting at 1645. The higher the stakes, the more likely it is that I will forget

    You missed my post on the matter last week Apparently they are Petreans only, so brim isn't coming. I will be however, apparently the only fresher in the hall However, it does mean that I can go to the last ceilidh band of term tomorrow. It is black tie, no?

    Anyway, I hope to see you there, assuming that your perfectionism hasn't overwritten your need to eat

    Take a book. The times listed are merely token. You're likely to be waiting in a queue for quite awhile.

    *goes into town to buy book*

    :p:

    Actually I do need to go into town, but not to buy food. I think that even I will be hard pressed eating 8 yoghurts between now and Saturday afternoon...

    Reading all this makes me appreciative of the fact that my biggest problem at the moment is sorting out a costume if I want to go to the Bop tomorrow.

    Myself and my college husband just had to help out our german friend who's coming along to Christmas Formal. He went out to find Black Tie and came back in a panic because he couldn't work out exactly what it involves :p:

    Argh poor Tom!
    On the plus side, I've written a thousand of those words this afternoon. I had a few hours of inspiration (by which I mean the ******** flowed freely). 'Tis great when ideas of what to write are really coming thick and fast, though - you know when you have three half-written paragraphs on the go at once because you can't type fast enough to keep up? If only that would happen more often no workload would ever be a problem (whereas in reality of course, in common with every student, every 10% of writing is accompanied by 90% of procrastination and thumb-twiddling...)

    I've never had the three paragraph thing :puppyeyes: And in contrast to your experience, I'm now in the embarrassing situation of not understanding my own essay (that I need to edit) written about ten days ago :rofl: Oops.

    Awww :p: Not as bad as one Petrean who thought that "Black Tie" meant "wear a black tie"...

    I'm guessing it was for bypassing the swear filter.
