Hugh Laurie on House:
"I don't watch regularly, I hate seeing myself, but it's even worse hearing my American accent. I had no idea I sound so retarded, a dull monotone, full of clunking mistakes."
Does anyone know why they got an excellent British actor and then got him to play an American character? And did the blonde one sound Australian to anyone else?
Had first interview today. Found out 2 min after arriving at the school that the only other candidate is the current PGCE student. Figured I was the token outsider, muddled through the day thinking oh, it's just a practice.
Then got offered the job.
At the end of the interview they asked if I was still a strong candidate. I said I was still considering the school, however when they phoned they made out as though I had confirmed that I was utterly interested, and they were expecting me to say yes there and then. If I turn it down I will need a really really really good reason to do so. I'm just not sure though....
I have 9 hours to decide either yes or no and think of above mentioned reason.
And try and get some sleep >.<
or maybe not, is only INSET plus CPD at some utterly random school tomorrow - I won't need my brain at all! *facepalm*
My black fluffy fan.
It was pinned to my notice board for almost the entirety of my final year at uni. Now, when I want to use it, can I find it?
My body shop vanilla body shimmer cream. Arg! I want to be all glittery :(
I will slap anyone who asks where I saw it last - I last used it a year ago and have moved 5 or 6 times since then...
In the very wee small hours of Sunday morning I had an excellent chat with onyx_shinigami
, enhanced somewhat by my opening the Christmas goody package from ol' Hangul. I am still cracking up over the cannibal pandas pencil cases, and the Ted, Rabbit notepad, and the... well, lets just say a lot of very dodgy konglish stationary! "Without thinking I took my finger And wrote your name in the moisture..." is, however, classic :)
Had a chat with peeps about wedding stuffs, seems like I was the last person to know/remember/realise that it was a masked ball at the reception last weekend. This was then followed by manic internet searches, and hunting of places that sell masks. My planned dress for the night will have to do, and a masque has been found that mostly matches... a bit too gold for my liking, but I guess you can get away with it for that sort of thing.
Anyways, here is a sneak peek:
Current Music: prefab sproat - alberquerque (it was playing in the shop!)

Just got back from having seen the Golden Compass, was way cool, and I'm glad the blob who went to see it with me enjoyed it too, even though he was a bit concerned as to how much he'd get, or not, what with not having read the books. Didn't turn out to be a problem as the film is really dumbed down. That was it's only bad point really; it felt like a kiddies' film, but the books definitely have an 'adult' level to them.|
I shall say no more least I need to post spoiler alerts!
Again, apologies to those to whom I owe e-mails, you are not forgotten, I will get around to it very soon I promise... Just after I get the dreaded year 8s out of the way...

This year I've been busy!
In January I turned violetnights in for littering (3 points). Last week I pushed phoenix_zephyr in the mud (-17 points). Last month I bought porn for cgaqualla (10 points). In March I broke phlipside's X-Box (-12 points). In June I gave clarie a kidney (1000 points).
Overall, I've been nice (984 points). For Christmas I deserve a Pony Slaystation 3!
