A thread to say whatever you want. Kind of a 'common room' so people here can get to know each other better.

If this isn't successful so be it. You can even bad mouth me, if you so wish.

Man, I hate that Rich guy.

Besides that, I am currently doing some uni study. At the moment, I am reading a section on electron domain geometries and I need to get two more chapters done for an assignment due on Friday. It's terribly exciting and I'm not anxiously wanting to watch a film instead at all.

I have too many movies and tv shows on my computer, therefore I am often unable to choose what to watch, so I say 'fuck it' and go do something else. :|

My Saturday night is so rivetting I can't think of anything more exciting to do than working on a list for ICM. Three quarters finished and still about 170 titles to add...

My neck was starting to hurt and it's too fecking hot to concentrate on study right now, so I'm taking a break and watching Touching the Void. Cold, pretty snow :'( I WANT.

I do not want snow, happy with English late winter early spring weather mild weather-currently cloudy and 12 degrees C 55 degrees F

Nice and cool.

Here is a handy guide to British slang, seems fairly accurate to me.

Mmm, Touching the Void is so good.

Yeah, that slang guide seems mostly correct.

Was videochatting with some fellow future exchange students who're going Italy for like 2 hours yesternight. It was hilarious, but mainly because a girl there looked just like Angus T. Jones!

I just came back from the football. The team I support drew 2-2 sadly. 2-1 up but the away team got a late goal so there will be a replay. It's the quarter finals so it's a big match for us. I thought I'd share that wonderful piece of information in the Lounge.

I finalized my internship today! Got a place as an educational psychologist trainee, working with 'socially, behaviourally, and emotionally unstable children.'

Prosperous times ahead hopefully.

Haha. I support Hearts and go to their matches but my mum is from Slough and I look out for their results and plan to go to some of their matches in the future. Might move to England one day. At the moment, the Hearts games are two miles away and the Slough games are nearly 400 miles away...

Hearts
Knew it would be a Scottish team and not Slough as that matchday commute would be impressive.

Don't follow Scottish football much but at least your Hearts are more stable than Rangers at the moment.

Yeah, everyone is hoping for Rangers to go out of the business at the moment. The Old Firm have wrecked Scottish football. :down:

Just came back from The Artist. Was initially surprised to see the show was almost full (it's in its 3rd week here in India) but then 80% of the people were foreigners. And movie was a strict GOOD. Nothing more nothing less.

Hey! I think this kind of topic was needed, awesome. I have been skiing all day (around 6 hours). And I'm just home now to take a shower and grab something to eat before heading over to a buddy to watch the godfather films. It's gonna be great. :)

The Servant is a masterpiece. Bakshi is brilliant, but I love his own stuff better than when he takes on projects that are just too big for him (Fritz the Cat, The Lord of the Rings). Read the Robert Crumb comic books instead.
