    Need to work. But too tired.

    I also need to get round to filling my internship/vacation scheme applications out before everywhere fills up, but I hate the questions they ask (for example, "what is your proudest moment?" :rolleyes: )

    Not impressed. They have installed a stupid timer on our oven/hob combo, meaning it will only be on for ten minutes at a time. This means that when I'm cooking something I have to run down and press the button every 9 minutes or my food won't cook. I have better things to do with my time!! And I was planning on cooking a roast, the meat of which takes two hours to cook.
    That's insane! Were people leaving the oven on all day or something?!

    No. There's only 2 of us that live here, and it wasn't me, and he can see it if he opens his bedroom door, so it isn't my housemate either. I'm going to complain, but I bet you twenty quid they blame health and safety.

    Yes, they will. Queens' put them in our kitchens last year except mine was on some absurdly short timer until it was fixed. I think I'm right in saying our -electric sockets- in the kitchen were on them too.

    That would be good, apart from the fact that this is now the only way to turn the damn thing on. I am not impressed.

    I'm off to hear Roger Penrose :yep:
    Was he any good? I considered going, but didn't want to take the risk of it being 55 minutes of stuff any scientifically literate person knows anyway followed by 5 minutes of interesting stuff.

    Pffft sleep is for losers. I've had 4-5 hours of sleep and 17 hour days for the past few days. Need to be in at 7:15 tomorrow and have to do 2 assignments tonight. Oops.

    Panto kicked ass today, even though there were a few line ****-ups and one of the main characters broke the Christmas tree...

    You could try pointing out that ovens are designed to be on for more than 10 minutes. That is absolutely insane.
