Obligatory question [18 Apr 2006|01:24pm]

notepeak
Just wanted to know what day/time everyone is getting back. And anyone know when the first meal is?
Can't believe I'm excited about going back to exam-land, but I am.

Could anyone tell me what homework I should be doing. So far I know B2 and three physics questions. Are there any other Maths ones to do (Probability/Algerbra/B1)???

I think that Samuel Beckett should learn a lesson from Channel 4. Mr Beckett's play, 'Waiting for Godot', lasts for about three hours, and nothing very interesting happens. Yet Channel 4 have managed to achieve this same feat with 'Deal or no Deal' in just under 45 minutes.

Riots! [15 Apr 2006|10:55am]
tj34
Hello Everyone,

It is now only a week and a day to when we are all back at the lovely college of the Saint Chad. I was walking to work on Thursday listening to Today on Radio 4 (I know I am boring) and I was astonished to hear that there is rioting in Chad! I was very upset at this new and I am now considering whether it is safe to return to Durham next Sunday.

Kingsdown is officially famous [14 Apr 2006|07:37pm]
becky5_taynuilt
Kingsdown was on the BBC last night (well a two minute slot on the local news anyway). We have a beached two-year old female humpbacked whale on the beach. As my grandfather is visiting us at the moment - he found it yesterday (he didn't actually find it - he told us about it) and made us all go and look at it, he also went this morning and has dragged my dad down to see it now. I had to take loads of photos which he is going to take and show his friends - I felt like a SOCO (scene of crime officer).
See you all in just over a week.

This looks good! [07 Apr 2006|11:20am]

While I'm sure boat builing would be a fun and productive activity to fill the time after the exams I have come up with something slightly more normal - go to http://www.orangeevolution.co.uk/evolution.html and click on Freevolution (the second link down on the right hand side). We are soooo going to this (well I am anyway) - it's free! and Hard-Fi are there!

I actually went online to print out some "phases of matter" questions in order that I could do them and thereby have "revised" phases of matter. But these things work in strange ways, and I couldn't find any, so anyway, here I am posting on livejournal.

Hello everyone! Are you having wonderful, wonderful holidays?
Nikita, that is very exciting indeed! Rome! And Susan, I'm sure visiting Simon in Manchester almost was (almost) equally fun. Chris, how is the record-beating attempt going? And Becky, good luck with the grandparents. :)

I have not done anything so interesting. Mostly I have been in my house. It seems silly to make an entry about me doing nothing, though, so I shall find something to say.. Ooh, here are some things we might need to know for after the exams:

"Build your own boat
The earliest means of boat building were done by the use of body parts such as the hands and forearms"

"Log Cruiser

The outdoorsmen and the pond have ever been close companions. Surely you can find four good stout logs and cleat them with pieces of scantling firmly spiked on. It is best to have the fore end of the raft pointed as shown, for it will break the waves and cut through the water more easily. Between the second and third log is a center-board just like Fig. 3. It hangs down into the water and can be raised and lowered at will. The rudder plan is made clear by Fig. 5. The sail is the most difficult part to make. Use a sapling for a mast and brace it with two wires stretched from its highest point to the front cleat. Fig 4 shows the size and rigging of the sail. If you cannot afford a sail you can paddle the raft."

Well. There you go, then..

See you in a couple of weeks :)

Hi all,
Hope everyone is having a good holiday so far. How's the revision (not) going? I'm finding it very hard to concentrate at all on revision :( not good. Oh well, only need a pass. Anybody actually doing anything exciting this holiday?
See you all in 3 and a half weeks!

Ok, I should be writing an essay [13 Mar 2006|02:43pm]

notepeak
But I don't want to. Plus, no-ones posted in forever, and this place is a good way to keep in touch in the holidays. Stolen from a friends LJ, because I'm bored:

YOUR MOVIE STAR NAME: (grandfather/grandmother on mother's side first name, favorite candy)

Jean Minstel...sounds crap.

YOUR "FLY GIRL/GUY" NAME: (first initial of first name, first three letters of your last nam

N-Wri

YOUR DETECTIVE NAME: (favorite animal, name of high school)

Dolphin Parrs Wood....No. Just no. That would make a terrible detective story.

YOUR OPPOSITE SEX NAME: (name of dad/mum, mobile phone Company you use):

Peter Virgin. No comment.

YOUR STAR WARS NAME: (daily prescription medicine, make of car)

Strepsils Lexus hahahaha...no. I'd rather use N-Wri. Ok, strepsils aren't prescription, but as I don't have a prescription I thought that was ok.

SOAP OPERA NAME: (middle name, street you grew up on):

Jean Queensway. Not bad actually.

YOUR FASHION DESIGNER NAME: (first word you see on your left, favorite restaurant)

Frankenstein Sangam. I don't think that would sell very well.

YOUR TRAGIC HEROINE NAME: (favourite flower, word off nearest book spine)

Daisey Shelley. Except I don't really have a favourite flower.

I just lost my second ever game of Risk, after taking over the entirety of South America with one horse.

I felt like making a record of such a glorious occasion.

I am currently listening to Purple Radio, the DSU's radio station. Poppy & James are down to host a radio show between 4 & 5:30 on Wednesdays. I don't know if they are still doing it but if they do it should be good.

You can listen to Purple Radio at http://purple.dur.ac.uk/site/?q=node/6.

Random post [10 Jan 2006|02:34pm]

Just talking out loud here, because I'm bored. More accurately, because I'm stranded in a friends student accomodation and she's gone to Uni. And the only person I can talk to is a student nurse roaming the corridor with a bit of a stationary fetish. Apparently she's the creator of the bright and scary "Flush the toilet ! :-)" and "No uniforms in the kitchen!" signs that I keep seeing everywhere. I think I used the wrong milk on my breakfast cereal, so I'm hiding.

Anyway, I felt like sharing this wonderful government statistic: You are more likely to be killed by your own trousers than in an aeroplane accident.

My apologies to all those who have lost loved ones to grevious trouser incidents, but I find this funny.

maths is fun [03 Jan 2006|10:34am]

Hello everyone. Sorry about the dull post, but: What is the calculus homework? I can't find it on DUO and I just generally.. can't find it. Please tell me, someone.

Hope you are having wonderful holidays, see you all soon :)

I'll see you soon.. but when? [01 Jan 2006|08:41pm]

susan_nelmes
When can we actually go back to the lovely place known as Durham? On the email about Christmas arrangements it says "The first meal of the Epiphany Term will be dinner on Sunday 15th
January". I had assumed then that we weren't allowed our rooms before 15th but I can't find where it says this, and if this is the case can we arrive anytime on the 15th? Anybody know?
