Things I learnt whilst intercalating

9 01 2011

Things learnt during my intercalation year:

1) That yoghurt is really easy to make-although does require youghurt to make it.
2) That giving traditional birth attendents cranberry juice will not cure their social phobias.
3) Facebook is the best procrastination tool known to man (well, students anyway).
4) That vital websites will always be down, email inboxes full, library books MIA and coffee machines without any cups the night before a deadline.
5) The hilarity of geeky stats jokes is inversely proportional to the time (in hours) since last using SPSS.
6) That research karma is real – I blame not filling in all those 3rd year PHP questionnaires for my response rate.
7) That “statistics is just REALLY hard” (pearl of wisdom, apparently).
8) That medcaf will never be able to meet the brownie demand caused by intercalators!
9) Not to advertise sexual preferences on emails sent to staff.
10) “It’s a fork” (otherwise known as assume makes an ass of u and me)

Nerd-mas

30 12 2010

Recovering slowly from a lovely Christmas time with the family. Lots of silliness, far too much food, and a bundle of geekish pressies to wrestle our way home with!

Currently in that odd lull between Christmas and the new year, which I’m filling with rewatching Wonders of the Solar System for the third time, eating a small mountain of chocolate, and getting excited about Stargazing LIVE. On that note, the Christmas Lectures are on TV now!

Happy nerd-mas one and all.

New trainers

16 11 2010

OK, it’s been a while. It’s the bloggers curse…that horrible “It’s been ages since I updated, promise I’ll do better in future” post. Busy with the start of final year (and with the start of final year, the start of finals exams!), popped along to local Skeptics in the Pub a couple of times, and just catching up with friends after being away over the summer and on far placements during the week,

But my news is very exciting. I have some super-cool, geek friendly david and goliath trainers:

Ahhh, how super-cure are they?! Nerdtastic.
