No, but the one I had the night before was wierd. For some reason me and my friends form home were having a battle with one of the other halls on campus, either Cripps or Florence Boot.

We were on a really big wall and I jumped down to get the enemey and someone managed to get me but my armour limited the damage but I couldn't use my arm.

That brings my total up to a humongous four!

Admittedly I had to save one with a high brace and I did another one so powerfully I nearly went right over the other side again, but I still managed it. And I only capsized once, right at the end.

Considering my goal was to be able to do them by the end of my first year, I think I'm doing pretty well!!

Not going on the Wales trip next month; I'm not confident enough with my white water skills yet. But mark my words I will be there eventually. Can't wait for Thursday so I can practise some more.

This is what you get for letting me think....

I have been thinking (always a dangerous move for me) and no, before you ask, it didn't hurt.

This just proves that I really do have far too much time on my hands.

I have always wondered, considering the placebo effect, if you could sell tic tacs in a nightclub and pass them off as ecstasy. Tic tacs have always looked rather a lot like drugs to me (might just be me as well) and people probably would get high off them if you told them it was E. Now I'm not even remotely familiar with the going rate for illegal drugs (but I'll bet that it's well above inflation) but could you imagine the profit margin on a single packet of tic tacs?

Now if that thought amused me, it was nothing compared to what I considered next.

Now, I reckon that if you got caught selling them the police would have to let off since you weren't actually selling an illegal substance. I reckon you might have a couple of days inside a cell while the forensics bods worked out that your little white pills were in fact made by Ferrero and not manufactured by some ugly gangster and smuggled into the country inside a condom.

Thing is though, you would probably get let off the drugs charges only to find Trading Standards for false advertising...

Such is the world in which we live!

Tattoo Designs....

Been playing around with tattoo designs today (instead of doing my lab write ups like i should be doing!) and I have managed to come up with what I want my lower back piece to look like in the end.

I already have the yin and yang with the crescent moons, but this is how i would like it to look when it is finished, except that I have two versions and can't quite decide wich one to finally go for lol.

My tattoo at the moment looks like this:

and the two finished designs I cant quite decide between are:


The writing in the first one says 'Goddess' at the top and 'God' at the bottom. The second one says 'An it harm none, do waht ye will.'

The first one looks better , but the second one is much more personal.

Well, this tattoo is a very personal one any way, with a lot of meaning to it. Never mind the fact that both me and my best friend both have the same basic design.

But I wanted it to be a bit bigger, a bit more. I love the cletic knots either side, and I definately want something written above and below in the Tengwar script, but I'm not sure which version I like best.

You learn a new thing everday...

Things I have learned recently:

1) I have been doing completely the wrong martial art for two years.

Friday night I went to a martial arts taster session. We got to try out some moves from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I spent the evening rolling around on the floor with my legs wrapped around a very nice lad called Harry. The fact we had only just met and we were in fact trying to break each others arms is inconsequential! ;P He thinks he's going to join the Ninjitsu club at the University and by some strange coincidence it looks like I'm going to be joining as well!

2) Jagermeister tastes like cough medicine.

Was at Nottingham Rock City Sunday night for the end of week one party. And what does one do when you are at the home of Rock in Nottingham? Drink some Jagermiester of course! I swear the stuff tastes like cough medicine, yet despite that it really is quite nice. I'm pretty sure it has the same effect as cough medicine as well as it got rid of my tickly cough that isn't going to turn into Fresher's Flu!

3) The Twang really aren't very good.

I had never even heard of them before I had the misfortune to see them live, and it turns out there is a good reason for that! Was right at the front at the start of the set cos most of the people in my Hall had heard of them and apparently like them; I decided pretty early on that they weren't worth me losing my hearing over, so I slunk off to start drinking the aforementioned Jagermeister. In my honest opinion, they would be a pretty decent band if the got rid of the two men they jokingly call 'singers'!

3) I love Somerfield!

As in the supermarket! Just went shopping for 'essentials' and managed to get the following for under four quid: wash powder, fabric softener, a pack of yoghurts, hot chocolate, cornflakes, sugar and four packets of instant noodles! I swear that place is student heaven! And the best thing about it is that the stuff I bought there doesn't taste like sh*t! The hot chocolate is some of the best I've had!

4) I am so going to work as a Chemistry lecturer when I graduate.

I would so fit in! Went to my first chemistry lecture yesterday. I sidled into the lecture theatre and sat down with sweaty palms, convinced that it was going to be uber hard and I wouldn't have a clue what was going on. The lights dimmed and there was quiet. There were words on the screen; A long time ago, in an empty galaxy far far away... Then the Star Wars theme tune starts playing. The complete chemical history of the universe is then related to us in scrolly yellow writing. When it is finished the periodic table looms over the screen, as ominous as a Star Destroyer. Then another song starts playing. This time it is Tom Lehrer's Elements Song. Which, if you've never heard it, is completely ridiculous. The entire lecture theatre is in stitches by this point! The lecturer introduces himself as Professor Martyn Poliakoff, brother of director Stephen Poliakoff. The lecture is on Atomic and Molecular Theory but is made interesting my amusing anecdotes about ants in microwaves and pictures of the people whose theory's we are talking about. In short; my professor is completely, utterly and thoroughly mental! It's brilliant. I think I might marry him if he wasn't sixty, probably already married with kids and grandkids! And if that doesn't prove how mental he is, he had quite obviously modelled his hairstyle on Albert Einstein! My new life ambition is to be a mad University Professer

And if you have never heard Tom Lehrer's Elements Song, your life will not be complete until you click this link:

There may be many others but they haven't been discovered
