    He's too tall for you my dear, the wedding photos would look like you'd married a giant. But if the position of toyboy is all that is on offer then I shall accept... reluctantly :huff:
    I am not that small myelf, around 169 cm so I doubt he will dwarf me
    Besides, you were fine with the arrangement earlier :eyeball:

    By the way, our children will be called Jeremy, James and Richard (in that order). And i'll drive a black supercharged Range Rover V8, you shall drive a Fiat 500 :yep:

    Marvel at the way I have it all planned out in my head

    Oh right sorry, I thought you'd seen it and were questioning at which points did I ever think it wasn't good. So to summarise it's a pretty good film with a stellar performance from Sandler, but it's ultimately made unmemorable by it's ending.

    United 93's on at 10.15. Quite late for a film but it's really worth it - the story is about the 4th plane on 9/11 where the passengers decided to try and stop it hitting it's target, and it's directed by a guy who honed his trade doing searing documentaries. It sounds simply amazing, I'd highly recommend checking it out.
    :p: I may see it one day, I donno when it would be though

    Cool, I may try to watch it, but may end up going to bed as I've had a long day... Been up since 7am (earliest I've seen in a long time) and been paint balling which was completely knackering and bruising :p:

    If I miss it, I may have to find it online :ninja:

    That's good. My main gripe about Macs is that they're now the type of machine that egotistical dicks take into Starbucks, so that everyone can see them writing. I want them to be cool and unpopular still! :p:

    They are really good. It will pay to watch them in order though. But everything about them is great, from the acting to the plot to the ridiculously brilliant martial arts scenes (they're so understated they just rock - in one he attacks a guy with a biro pen!). Casino Royale is a very good film, probably the second best Bond film ever (because nothing will ever touch the magnificence of From Russia With Love :love:). I don't really understand the amount of stick that QoS received - sure it wasn't a classic, and it didn't really stack up in places, but it was a perfectly serviceable action flick and it by no means was the worst in the series. I just think it would have been hard for anything to follow Casino Royale, and the fact that it wasn't really pushing the boundaries at all seemed to cause a lot of anger.
    haha if I would have lots of money one day I may consider getting one :p:

    Awesome, i will keep that in mind :yep:

    I don't remember most of the Bond films, it's been far too long since I've seen them :p:

    QoS was completely action orientated if I recall correctly, I couldn't follow the story line at all and it was just all explosions :erm: Maybe that was because it was supposed to continue on from Casino Royale and I hadn't seen since I saw it in the cinema when it came out. It could very well be that Casino Royale itself set the standards so high it made QoS a let down

    Yep, should be rather scary the first couple of weeks. At least you don't have tutorials - I'm dreading the first one of those, when I can really be shown how stupid I am in comparison to another student. :s:
    Indeed, but I'll have at least a couple of people I'll know :awesome: One of which is a friend of mine from this area She is also living in the same flat as me :p:

    I'm sure you won't be outshone by another student From what I've seen you seem to be a very intelligent and witty guy You can't fall short of any other intelligent Oxford person if at all I don't think highly of you at all :p:

    An abomination of the english language? For someone interested in history, you seem to have no concept of the evolution of language, why it happens or why it is a good thing. Why do you think it is acceptable that the english language was able to morph (some might say, abominably) from olde english into it's current incarnation, but you think it's a shame if it progresses any further? Would you have criticised Shakespeare, for making up words?
    Yes I have a concept of the evolution of language, otherwise we'd still be grunting like cavemen/state school pupils (sorry, couldn't resist). Evolution is necessary, I agree, but saying "wazzup me homies?" rather than "how are you?" is just wrong.

    And Shakespeare can do as he pleases, though actually i'm not all that keen on him.

    *dusts himself down*

    Actually, I went to a state school for primary school.
    And I do know people who can't string a sentence together, at least what I would call a sentence. That is, the English language rather than an abomination of the English language.

    And I look down at practically everyone, but only because i'm 6 foot 4.
    Are you serious?

    Do I get a say as the possible father of one or more? I would have her drive a Fiat Panda mwahahaha :laugh:
    Ok, the Fiat Panda would be acceptable, though I prefer the 500 and would happily borrow it at weekends.

    The whole state school thing gets a little tiring after a while. Who says "wassup me homies"?

    Shakespeare, whilst some may not be keen on him, was undoubtedly a genius in literary terms so saying you may not be keen on him is a weak argument, unless you see it fit to deny that his plays were revolutionary on English culture.

    Thank you both for the responses! I'm purchasing it from the Apple store along Regent Street so I'll just decide between 13" / 15" on the day. :yy:
    No problem

    If you're going to the store you can probably get a good feel of what it would be like to have either one from the feel of the display ones

    AutVinceriAutMori, I should insist on calling them Wazza, Gazza and Becksie just to see the effect on Citrus. Would be immensely entertaining :yep:

    PS If I get a say, it's James, Theo and Samuel

    Yeah I agree, and I wasn't completely serious actually.

    And I agree with your second point to and wasn't trying to argue anything. I'm not keen on Shakespeare just like i'm not keen on celery, or Cash in the Attic, or Aquafresh tooth paste

    You weren't completely serious, but were you partially serious? I wouldn't have thought you were until people jumped in on the defensive to be honest, but now I'm not so sure. I'd say, either way, it's best to leave the elitist comments.
