I got banned \o; Again o/

Now not only is my site banned by websense, but now I’m banned personally too, by my own school…

It seems that the reason is that I read my school’s unofficial newspaper, Overmark — not content with merely banning the physical paper and threatening to expel anyone linked to it, they’re now going after the readers too >:(

“Mmmm… Old…” vs “Mmmm…ould *vomit*”

Being forced through a full english roast dinner makes me realise just how much I dislike them — It’s come to the stage where I get full up just by looking at roast potatoes; having had them so often, my quota for them is full. On the other side is the english breakfast, of which I have yet to give up and leave any…

In a related incident, my love of chemically and genetically altered food has gone up another notch — a while ago we had cheap bulk blackcurrant juice, of which I could make a bottle full, and be sipping from it for weeks. Now we have “more organic, fewer artificial preservatives” juice, and it goes mouldy after a few days — of course, I only realised this after drinking it.

Now would probably be an appropriate time to rant about how GM food isn’t Pure Evil(tm), but I really need to be getting on with psychology coursework, which I’ve just found out has to be in tomorrow rather than in two weeks time >_

Curse you, non-free journals

Trying to find the original research that I’m working with for psychology is much harder than I’d like – I’m looking for some quite old studies from 1900s to 1990s, but all I can find is the journals for the past 3 years being sold for 20 pound each…

On a related note, I’ve started learning LaTeX, and after only a couple of days I’ve already stopped using all WYSIWYG word processors

A farewell of no great fondness

So I took down the content from my angelfire site, and redirected here. Yay ._. Also of note is that while it was my angelfire site that probably got pimped most (ie, at all), it’s this site that first managed to get onto google’s front page of the word “Shish” \o/

Also; it’s testing season again. The psychology tripwire didn’t have any “match the surname to the study” madness, so I think I did quite well \o/ Who’s idea was it to take perfectly well named studies and refer to them as “, ()[, page number in unspecified book]” anyway?
