Well . . it's been a while since I've popped by here. Unfortunatly sorting out stuff in RL got the better of me.

I'm off to University tomorrow so things will either get a lot worse or a lot better.

Either way, wish me luck - and hopefully I'll be spending more time here that I have recently.

I've been busy too.

Well, not really. But thats always a good excuse for almost anything. :)

Hey.

University is good . . or at least so far (but that's because the lectures haven't started yet ;)) - as you can see I get an internet connection which works perfectly . .

:D Be back later . . .

EDIT - Oh yeah. And the Cider here is very cheap . . . so if I make posts late at night which make no sense you know why . . .

All Hail White Lightning :D:p

White Lightening? No. The stuff here is Strongbow . . .

But Cider is better than Lager / Beer as I can drink loads without the after-taste making me gag.

And it's only £1.65 a pint . . . almost £1 cheaper than my local (which, currently, is 3hrs away). So I'm happy . . . *hic*

NOTE -> I'm not an alcholic before you get that impression. I've never had more than 6 pints of the stuff in one evening. Just to clean this up before the slander starts. ;)

EDIT:
I also was going to mention that the internet connection here is like wonderful. I did a test at a quiet time (~12midnight) and was getting a steady 250Kb/s download speeds at 10ms pings from UK servers . . . .

Me wants one o' these at home.

Mmmm... Strongbow.

Now with the semi-tasty White "get pissed quick" flavour.

Six pints is quite a /lot/ you know. =)
Just try not to make it every night, neh?

It's a lot? Hmmm. Fair enough - I'll stop using my dad as a gauge ;)

Actually I've probably not drunk beyond 15 pints total since arriving. Mainly because I'm not bothered about getting drunk, which some people see as a must for an evening . . . anyway.

But I have discovered it's a £38.60 for a return ticket & 3 hour ride (each way) to visit home on the trains. Expensive. I could feed myself on that for a week.

Anyway. After almost three weeks I recommend University to anyone who will be getting to that point soon. You meet great people and as long as you pick a subject that you enjoy it's good fun as well.
