Instead she'll moan. Genius. Possibly crazy, but thankfully as inept financially as myself. My favourite blogging student lesbian. Not that there are loads. Just another student, raking his way through the daily pile of crap. Life in Canada. It's scarily poignant at times. Not preaching, more informing. With laughs, beer and tall tales. London's resident party animal and freebie fanatic. Can you feel the sleaziness? Yet another one of us blogging student types. Except he's funny. Sort of... Glorious b+w white photos of London and other places. Simply the most passionate blogger around. His days must be full to bursting with things to do just to put on the blog. A Scottish mother who loves the pipes. Read into that what you will. A great little blog by an American college girl. She even plays a British sport... Yet another of us blogging students. Yes, we really are that lazy. A Swedish (I think) guy who includes me in his 'Blogs As Literature' section. i.e. possibly mad. A London blogger who is fascinated by the overall concept of blogging. He's written a few papers on the subject too. One if the most dedicated blogs, a Londoner who gets up to fifty times as much stuff as I ever do. A British media student / graduate who loves his music. And his boozing. A disgruntled teacher, buried somewhere in Europe. A Canadian mother who seems to like my blog. The so-called Expert Analysis of this very blog, as spoofed by one of my ex-housemates. An American girl who has a thing for British guys. Fair play. An Aussie guy who used to be on a messageboard I was on a while back. The single greatest source of news the web has ever seen. And it's British! My source of Arsenal-related news and gossip.

First Day's Achievements

So, the internet has been running on this computer for about 12 hours now, and has been on solidly. I've managed to get a few things done, such as downloading a few programs I needed (Quicktime, Kazaa Lite, WS FTP and MSN Messenger), plus I've set myself up some bookmarks.

Meanwhile, the others have been downloading (unashamedly and to be expected) porn. Surprise, surprise. I can see my computer being full of random porn by the end of the week, never mind the end of the year. Thank christ we've only got a 56k connection, not broadband, or it'd be full already. Have they nothing better to do?

One thing which did surprise me tonight: we had a Thanksgiving Dinner. Bear in mind that none of us are remotely American, and this seems a little strange. However, Marissa, Matt's long-distance girlfriend, has just arrived here for a week, so her and Matt cooked a big dinner for all of us, which I was thoroughly impressed by. I wasn't impressed, however, by the amount of washing up I had to do afterwards... I guess it saved me the effort of cooking though.

Is this the start of a downturn in my studies? It's half past twelve at night, and I've got to be up at 7.15 tomorrow, yet I'm here randomly blogging. Oh well, such is life.

PS. Check out the (finally) updated RobCam image on the right. I took it when the sun was streaming in through my window a week or so ago, and cast that shadow on the wall. Do you know how difficult it is to hold a camera facing right whilst trying to keep your head facing directly forward in order to get the shadow of your profile? No? It's very difficult. Trust me.
