Can I borrow a meme?

Leave a ONE WORD comment that you think best describes me. It can only be one word. No more than one word. Then copy & paste this post to your own journal (if you want to!) so I can leave a word about you.
Disregard the last post. I was just having a mopey five minutes. It happens from time to time and nothing usually comes from it.

... I could still do with a cup of tea though.

Where have all my friends gone?

Last week, I had four of my best friends with me...

One week later, I can't find anyone :(

This may be fate's of telling me to stay home and work on my dissertation/ job applications/ accomodation for next year/ whatever.

Instead, I'd like to think that everyone's playing a big game of hide and seek.


I need my friends... or at a hug at least (maybe a cup of tea as well).

(A Gareth who is cut off from his friends is not conducive to a happy Gareth).
No! Our spare bedrooms are not available for you to move in the day you enquire about it.

No! You cannot keep three dogs when the contract states no pets.

No! Your parents can't move in.

No! You are not above paying the bills just because you don't like technology.

No! You cannot have 15 spare keys cut.

No! You can't use the spare room to smoke meat.

Just... No!

Sorry about that, we've been getting people calling about the spare room and some of the things they think they can get away with is rediculous. Admittedly, one of those statements is a joke.

Try and guess which one.

Writer's Block: Fight or flight

Not personally, but if such an eventuality occured, it would be a matter of perspective. If I were being attacked and I fought back in self defence then no, I wouldn't. Your average attacker is probably not into diplomacy so if you can't talk them down/ walk away/ they go back on their word if you give them what they want and are intent on reducing you to a bloody pulp, then I would have no qualms over defending myself.

In a way, it's similar with bullying. When I was younger, I noticed that many of the methods we were taught to stop bullying weren't as effective as expected:

1). Ignore them - More often then not, your typical bully would just double their efforts.
2). "Use your words" - Usually escalated to further verbal abuse.
3). Telling someone - Usually resulted in petty recrimination afterwards
4). Bring back the death penalty - Some thought that this was a bit to extreme

If, on the other hand I struck someone because I was angry then yes, I would regret it. They may have no connection as to why I would be angry. I would have attacked somebody "because they were there at the time," ergo i would be no better than the type of person I described in my previous utterings.

Overall, I feel that the context of the situation helps to influence the fight or flight response

What I have learnt in the past month...

1. Every day, I am getting slightly madder.

2. Ebay snipers are ebil, but I can take solace in the fact I made somebody pay out the nose for something.

3. Yes Minister is hilarious and why I didn't get into it earlier is a mystery.

4. Whenever I play the Doctor Who RPG, I will always be known as a wise cracking shapeshifting penguin.

5. In the "Anal Lube" episode of Mock the week, the words anal lube were mentioned 38 times (not including the extras)- That's right, I was that bored.

6. I missed my calling in confectionary. I now have a sudden urge to make some rum truffles.

7. There is always one person at the AGM who everyone else plans to forms a quorum to punch them in the face.

8. I know more about Haemochoncus contortus, Trichostrongylus colubriformis and immune responses in sheep then I think is healthy for me (dammit Jim, I'm a geneticist, not an escalator... erm, I mean parasitologist. Hee!)

9. I've got 27 fic ideas and I've only completed two and a half.

10. Apparently if you scan a zebra in a supermarket, it comes up as frozen peas.

Giving in to the masses.

I finally gave in.

I has a twitter. Admittedly, I initially got it because Las Iguanas has a weekly prize draw (A £20 voucher is not to be sniffed at), but I'll get used to it.

I think...

Oh yeah, I know I said I would stop the jokes, but I thought of one today and I might as well spread the comedy... or lack of it.

Does misery love company?

No. Misery is not mature enough to tell the difference between an adolescent crush and love.


We has snow... again.

I have a hot water bottle to my left and a flask of tea to my right. These are probably my best weapons to combat the snow outside.

Brrr... I feel cold just looking at it.

That being said, YAY SNOW! Probably will wait to see how much we get before I go off and instigate a snowball fight, especially since I went AOT about three times in the last one (maybe more, I was having too much fun to keep track).

In other news, I applied for "Mock the Week" audience tickets. Whether I get them or not is a different story but if I do, it'll make a nice birthday present.

Oh yeah, I'm also dropping the joke of the day. The general consensus was that there are just not enough ketchup packets in the world. I'm inclined to agree.

... at least I admit it.

I can has joke now?

Joke of the day

What do get if you have a cat asking you for a cheeseburger?

One of three things

A) An unconvincing infiltration into the lolcats hierarchy ( It should be "has cheezburger").
B) Lay off the pot man.
C) You delicate psyche has become horribly unglued. (take this opportunity to repair it with superglue. If you have none, UHU or Pritt-Stick with hot resin works just as well. It won't fix it but it will make it all shiny and new. :D)
