Induction


Caffeine Club - which is likely to become my second home


As previously stated - yesterday was Induction Day where precisely knob-all was done. Queuing for ages, then found that they haven't processed my uni card. Consequently, our next lecture was reduced to nine minutes, followed by being stuck in a lecture that we weren't meant to be in.

Nothing doing re understanding the module timetable either - the response was a bit 'sup it up, buttercup', which sandpapered me up the wrong way. Anyway, thanks to my fellow Truro Refugees, at least the day was bearable.  We basically learnt that the 'north' staircase is NOT accessable from the 'south' staircase and indeed appears to be in a totally different dimention.  Everything is 'second star on the right and straight on til morning'.

To further mix metaphors - I guess we're not in Kansas anymore :-/

Porcine Miscreant


It was going to happen - my immense distaste for the Conservative Party knows no bounds.  I find it VERY interesting that Lord Ashcroft has landed the PM in such deep pig doo-doo - and via The Daily Mail (right wing tabloid comic, masquerading as a quasi-broadsheet) of all publications. Jeremy Corbyn is slated from the press and the Beeb as being too left wing/loony/old to be a party leader - yet this prick can be prime minister whilst trashing the poor, legalising fox hunting and cavorting with red-headed tabloid tarts from the'Chipping Snortin''set. The piece de resistance is seemingly another'youthful indiscretion'; not content on merely setting fire to tenners and pissing on tramps whilst out with his 'Hooray' chums, he also (allegedly) inserted his 'Member of Parliament' into a dead pig's mouth, as part of an initiation to a privileged diners' club.

Classy!

Answer for question 4512.

Have you had any pets in your life? If so, do you migrate towards just one type of animal (just cats, etc), or have you had a menagerie over time? What's your best story about a pet you've had?
I have always had a cat or two - not so keen on dogs as a rule. Stories? Oh, plenty....

Siouxie dragging a full-grown crow through the loo window and finding only the feathers and a very full cat. Gem as a kitten discovering a banana fritter wrapper from next door's bin and rolling all over it (I had to wash him in the sink - he wasn't amused). Gem and Tig fighting - she would want to play, he would want to hold her ears with his front paws, whilst battering her head with his back ones.

Then there are my two furry comedians - Dill (who sleeps in front of the fan in the front room) and Timeshare, who has 'moved in' and who pats me with her paw like I am her pet human
