Today I did something I said I would never do - I signed up to

Why? Well, I was bored. Honestly, I was at work and as it's the start of the year, there is absolutely no content coming in off newswires, so by midday I was almost ready to flash the office to break up the monotony. For everyone's sake, I signed up to this blasted site instead.

More online presence. If I were a paranoid man, I could get worried that I'll end up on some list somewhere. You know, where they know all my habits - the music I listen to, my political affiliations, which way I dress...

But seriously, I have Faecesbook, this LJ, a rather defunct MySpace, a beer blog on Tumblr of all things, a science podcast and now a freaking For someone who's trying to get off social media, I appear to be doing a piss-poor job.

Oh well. I'll take the bastards down with me...

So here's a youtube clip which is...very accurate, actually.

I'm drinking instant coffee.


I feel as though my insides have been desecrated.

And yet, if I do not drink this vile stuff, I will fall asleep through sheer boredom.

This paper I'm writing is almost as bad as writing/correcting my thesis. Funnily enough, it's on work I did for my PhD.

You never actually accomplish anything. The past keeps on coming back to bite you in the arse.

And then you remember that in the past, you had to drink instant coffee as well, and it's even more depressing that you appear to be regressing.

And then you realise you're referring to yourself in the third second person, and procrastinating, and you decide to get the fuck back on with things.

...but I find Heidi Klum hotter, now that I know that she keeps her old teeth in a pouch.


Yes, fuckit, I'm procrastinating. Review papers are boring as all hell.

It's gone.

It appears to have been disposed of.

What My Taste In Art Says About Me, apparently )

Yes, this makes sense. I've never really liked abstract or "modern" art.

So bored.

* I am, possibly, the most intolerant person that I have ever come across.

* Nostalgia for the win (see music). I had forgotten that this was on my iTunes.

[ profile] vox_diabolica and [ profile] mc_shamo, this is for you.

Get this and learn it. If you can.

We're going to WOMADelaide this weekend. Hope the weather's good. We're driving tonight. God, looking forward to that...

...and as I was woken up this morning at the dawn of crack by phonecalls from schools about Eva teaching little maggots in an emergency capacity, I decided to do this meme nabbed from [ profile] nykohl. Just to see how much of a pop culture whore I am.

- Bold all of the following TV shows which you've ever seen 3 or more episodes of in your lifetime.
- Italicize a show if you're positive you've seen every episode of it.
- If you want, add up to 3 additional shows (keep the list in alphabetical order).

It's long, I'm warning you. )

Not as much of one as I thought I'd be. Still, some shows on that list bring back memories.

Dear moth,

That fluorescent light is not the moon. If you would be so kind as to stop knocking your dumb head into it whilst trying to use it for navigation, I would be most grateful. You're interrupting my train of thought with that damned sound.

HAH! You just got fried, motherfucker!

Bugger. No you didn't. You just flew back up for more. Blimey. No wonder you useless winged retards will never take over the Earth.

Confusedly (and can't believe I'm writing an LJ letter to an insect, for god's sake...)

Doo doo de doo waaaa doo de doo! (<-- That's you playing something.) Everyone appreciates the band/orchestra geeks and the pretty voices. Whether you sing in the choir, participate in a school/local band, or sit at home writing music, you contribute a joy to society that everyone can agree on. Yay!

Mildly amusing.

Yes, I know it's a metaphor. I still think it's going to work about as well as putting a kleptomaniac in charge of Fort Knox.

The *I read* meme. )

For some reason I'm finding it quite hard to motivate myself. All I want to do today is stay at home in my jocks and watch Star Trek. This would be a really bad idea. Not just because I have so much work to do, but because I'm in danger of becoming a hermit. Getting up at 10 doesn't help either... I need some exercise. My beer gut's attempting to take over my entire body, like some sort of parasitic growth.

OK. Motivation. Shower-ation. Go to the lab. Extract DNA. Write some sections. Etc etc etc...

"Boys growing breasts because of lavender and tea-tree oil"

I'm watching freaking Veronica Mars. And I'm quite liking it. For shame, Shayne, for shame...and we didn't even find out who date-raped the girl! WTF!?!?!??!

Probably time to go to bed.

Julie Bishop doesn't believe that one in three overseas students obtain an Australian university degree despite poor English language skills.

Maybe she should ask the people who've taught them. For example, moi.

In fact, I would say that the one in three figure is an underestimate.

Bishop knows damn well that these students pay their way to get in. Therefore basic knowledge of English, let alone proficiency in it, is not the university's highest priority. Funny, if State governments were responsible for tertiary education, she'd be the first one condemning this "sorry state of affairs."

My god, I despise hypocrisy.

Don't get me wrong. I am not of the opinion that potential migrants should have to take language tests. However, if one is going to a country to study there, I think they should at least have a good grounding in that country's main language and improve their language skills while they are in that country.

I was entertaining the notion of participating in that "take-a-photo-a-day" thingy that [ profile] insomnius is involved in (by the way, [ profile] insomnius, don't be surprised if one of your random subjects attacks you one day. That guy looked menacing). Strictly speaking, I should have started it yesterday, being the first day of the new year and all, but the hangover said otherwise on New Year's Day.

So this morning I decided to do it. Alas, I looked high and low for Eva's digital camera, but it resisted being found. Then Eva remembered "Oh yeah! It's at Jock's place."

So, no photo-a-day for me. Bugger. Unless I'm even more contrary and start it when I we get the camera back.


Yes, ok, I should be writing my oration. That's what I tried to do today. I failed miserably.

Alright. I'm going to start doing it...

Hey, did you guys know that grilled cheese and Christmas-leftover-ham sandwiches smothered in gourmet hot chilli sauce are the best invention ever? My dinner rocked.


OK, adios.


ETA: Well, I've done the title slide. Maybe I should go and have a Victory SleepTM.

So, I'm watching the cricket and apparently before I started watching, Australia were in deep shit. They were 5 wickets down and trailing by 30 or so runs. As soon as I start watching, Andy Symonds starts swinging his bat and making runs. I don't know whom I want to win (I hate the Aussie team but I can't bring myself to go for England), but teams should hire me as a freelance game winner. I swear, every time I watch or go to the cricket, the team I'm hoping will do well (or better than the opposition) all of a sudden start playing like mugs, and they almost always lose. Maybe I could make a living off it.

Another thing. This is why I don't watch channel 9 cricket coverage. I hate Ian Healy. I should ring up the studios and ask "Hey Ian? Why don't you just get it over with and go to the Aussie dressing rooms and suck them all off one by one? I mean, it's what you basically do when you're commentating, anyway."

Then again, if Australia win, it means the bloody Barmy Army shut up. Hmm...the dilemma I face. Infuriating parochial Aussie fans or noisy, irritating English fans. Might have to toss a coin.

Ah, bugger this. Going to the lab.
