|10:51 pm - The quickest update in the world.|
Job = good.
SO far we have done filing and training, but we need to do the filing to understand the filing *system*, hence this is good practice. IT training on Thursday, after which we can do actual work.
COrporate induction on MOnday.
We = me and Bayah, the other new starter. She's nice and friendly.
I am too tired to make sense so please excuse the typos I need to be in bed.
PS This is just to explain why no comments till Saturday, I guess ;)
Current Mood: exhausted like an airlock
Current Music: Silence

Current Mood: worried

|11:36 pm - A quickie, so hopefully I can get an early night!|
The parents are back from Paris (they went on a four-day cheap holiday thingy). This is, on the whole, good.
The interview went *swimmingly* xD A few questions, to which I blithered about Physics being *exactly focused* on whatever it was they were asking about, and they want to follow up my references, which is, I think, a good sign on the whole. They're going to let me know by the middle of next week.
And the *other* Addenbrookes (Hospital in Cambridge) job that I applied for sent me a letter this morning, asking me to interview! That's on the 25th, though, so I have a while.
On Saturday I'm going to see my friend Vicki. She's in Germany.
This will be my first holiday by myself, my first trip on an aeroplane and I haven't seen Vicki in ages, so I can't wait xD
Uh, so I'll be out of contact for a few days ^^ I'm going hideously early on Sat, and coming back Monday morning. But for now I'm going to bed.
[EDIT] Oh, and we're going to see a Beatles tribute group tomorrow! But I've forgotten their name and I want to go to bed ;)
Current Mood: And that is squee
Current Music: Ringo singing 'Don't Pass Me By'

|11:39 pm - I cannot resist these things|
Mmm... You've got yourself a John, the most
experianced one in the group *wink*. You may
only get a one night stand with him, but every
second was worth it...
What Beatle do you wanna snog?

I'm really not sure that John *was* the most experienced one, though. I've heard that would have been Paul... xD
Current Mood: Arty, but sleepy

|10:30 pm - The iPod shuffle xD|
News: I have an iPod!
She's called Julia (yes, I name all my things that I carry around. My laptop's named Emily. If I have to spend time with them I like them to have names. That's important.)
She's 40 Gb, and I spend the first chunk of my Physics-prize money on her. She's white and snazzy (but I guess you know that) and is apparently fourth-generation (so Brian tells me).
At the moment she's singing 'The Sound Of Music' when the kids sing it and the Captain joins in.
So: my other news. I'm now Moorglade BSc (Hons) in Physics ^^
( Graduation witteringsCollapse )
><-- Okay, at this point Em crashed, and I gave up and went to bed. It's now Saturday xD --><
( continued!Collapse )
Current Mood: I am *always* sleepy xD
Current Music: Julia sings xD

Home, that is.
My parents came to pick me up from Uni on the *train*.
I'm back home.
With my 3.5 tonnes of stuffffff.
And now I'm going to bed.
Current Mood: It's bedtime!

|06:34 pm - Short and random.|
Went for a walk along the canal with Andy yesterday, and saw locks working xD I've read about them, but never seen them in RL. They're big.
Alfie (one of the cats) brought a frog in Friday night, so Kwan and I had to chase ti out. We also defrosted the freezer with the iron, got pizza and watched Shrek.
It's been a busy week.
Current Mood: Tired!
Current Music: Beatles cartoons xD

|01:57 pm - Explanation|
I am dictating this over the phone to my Mum, so if it reads a little strangely, then the mistakes come from the translation from my brain to her fingers.
In theory I was supposed to go to Uni on Thursday (!), or what ever day it works out to be but it didn't happen. Thursday I was feeling manky, Friday and Saturday mankier, and today merely mildly manked, but at this point I now don't have *time* to got to Uni :-( I have been working on your picture in my (tiny) breaks, and so far it's sketched out, and I've started turning scribbly lines into the right ones. However it turned out to be rather more complicated than I had expected (with a whole mass of stuff in the background) which is going to take quite a while to turn into a picture. At this rate I hope to have it finished by early 2010. (On the plus side the background will hopefully be coloured in a really cool way once I get round to the point of colouring it.)
Really, this is just to explain why I am unlikely to get on a computer until Wednesdat afternoon. I might get a few minutes on Tuesday, but with another exam on Wednesday it's going to have to be snappy because I have to go home and revise for that. I just don't want you to think I'm neglecting you ^^ when really I'm being oppressed by the mank and the revision :^)
