Save Top Gear! [Sep. 28th, 2006|09:13 am]
Kat
I'm planning to make a proper post within the next month or two, but until then, something is more important:

I have just read and signed the online petition:

"Save Top Gear!"

hosted on the web by PetitionOnline.com, the free online petition
service, at:

http://www.PetitionOnline.com/tg100/

I personally agree with what this petition says, and I think you might
agree, too. If you can spare a moment, please take a look, and consider
signing yourself.

Not that I'm jumping on the bandwagon or anything...

I'll give a high five to anyone who can work out the obscure ones... That said, they're in alphabetical order, so it won't be too hard when looking at my interests list, but I've missed some out as well

This is probably the best thing on the internet right now.

That is all.

--EDIT--

That is not all. HA! Just to clarify, the best thing on the internet is an ebay auction for some woman's account of her personal communion with Jesus, where he told her the cure to cancer (among other things)

Back now from the conference in Maastricht.

So, wasn't too bad, the conference was the International Ergonomics Association conference... Not entirely my area, but there was a psychophysiology section and a human computer interaction in process control systems session that we presented a paper in. Some boring stuff (there was even a paper about a new design of ergonomic toilet) but some of the things I went to were really good (some cool virtual reality talks and one guy who was trying to show that solar winds had an effect on performance and heart rate).

Maastricht was a fairly standard european city... Pretty clean, an old styled town centre with narrow streets, street cafes etc. (And a Miffy Shop!). But had the fun of being in the Netherlands, so nestled between the posh shops were sex boutiques and weed cafes. Spent the whole week with a load of German speakers, some from Austria, one from Switzerland, but most from Germany. That was interesting, because they'd forget my woeful grasp of German after about half an hour and slip more and more into their native tongue without translating. I think I managed to remember a bit of stuff from my GCSE german, enough to know when the conversation wasn't really of much interest anyway. The conference party was amusing, just because a load of old lecturers got really drunk and then ended up dancing in a line to YMCA. I'm guessing they were keeping a low profile the day after.

Coming back on the aeroplane was almost delayed for 3 hours because they'd overbooked the flight. But just as we were losing all hope, a group of business men decided they'd much prefer the "cashmoney compensation" and take a later flight. The upside of this was that we ended up in "premium" class for the way back, so much better sandwiches.

On Saturday we saw Superman Returns in 3D in the Imax, just because the Imax is always super cool. It was packed, even though it was a midnight showing. Very good, but I was so tired by the end of it, and then had to work our way through the drunken retards that populate the printworks on a saturday night - all the guys pumped up on alcohol and testosterone, and all the girls selling their wares....

For my birthday yesterday, Jess (who is awesome) got me ZIM! so I've been watching that for a while (including the never before seen episodes). Does it not amaze you?

Then we went to the guys' new house, which was about 20 degrees cooler than our flat is at the moment. Seriously, dying from the heat here.

Should be in uni today, but helped Jess get some things from arty shops in town, and then decided not to bother... So working from home it is!

[mood |tiredtired]

Spent my bank holiday Monday, from 11am to 11PM in the office doing coursework for a module. Got home just after 12, got to bed around 1, got up at 7am ready for going back into uni for 9:30am.

Finished my coursework finally and sent it off just before 12.

I want to go to bed!

I've just found probably the best website for explaining drug effects in the brain. Lots of cool animations!

But I really should be doing work. No work has been done thus far today....
