I spilt Tipp-Ex on my black jeans. Bright white Tipp-Ex on black jeans. Foooook.

 According to yahoo I should use white spirits on it but in the mean time I’ve coloured it in with black marker and probably made it ten times worse. I am a mess.

Ah well, back to a-wear I go.

Today is the most depressing day of the year.

Or so some professor says which is good enough for me anyways.

Apparently, the most depressing day of every year is the third Monday of January or ‘Blue Monday’ i.e. today. And this is because we’ve spent all our money over Christmas, have crap weather and haven’t stuck to our New Years resolutions. All boxes I can tick I’m afraid to say.

What could be related to this is a study that shows that Sunday night’s sleep is the ‘worst sleep’ of the week which would definitely make you a bit grumpy on a Monday morning.

And whatever you do – don’t leave your mobile phone on at night because this will make you sleep even worse! It’s definitely something I’ll have to change as I always sleep with my mobile on. I have no idea why. It’s not that I’m expecting a call or even want anyone to call me at night but still… it’s just that cutting off that link to the outside world. And sometimes drunken late night calls are funny, especially when the other person can’t even remember ringing you. I probably should consider turning it off now though.

EDIT: Apparently everyone knows about Blue Monday. How have I never heard of it before?!

Ow :(

And I have no idea how! I’m not toooo bad when I sit down, but I’m walking like a chicken at the moment. And it’s making me very grumpy so I’ve decided to watch one of my favourite youtube videos ever.

God Bless You Tube.

headless chicken

Sorry for the horrible image.

Speaking of chicken, that’s what I had for dinner in l’Gueuleton on Saturday night. Chargrilled cornfed chicken to be specific. Myself and 5 others went there for a meal on the recommendation of one of the couples. Whilst it was lovely… I wasn’t blown away. Especially considering at 6pm, there was a queue of about 50 people waiting outside. Having been forewarned, we left our names in and went to the Market Bar to soak up the atmosphere while we waited. I love the Market Bar. It’s such a great pub for having a good ould natter in.

We got seated in the restaurant about 9. My God that place is French. I couldn’t even see my meal but I had the yummiest white wine to drink. It’s name escapes me now though. I tried one of my friends oysters and I have to say, it was delish especially considering it was my first oyster EVAR. My chicken was tasty indeed, but not quite as exciting as others had said.

To be fair, the prices are extremely reasonable and the atmosphere is great. I would definitely recommend it, but maybe during the week when you wouldn’t have to queue for so long.

The Ultimate Rejection Letter

Herbert A. Millington
Chair - Search Committee
412A Clarkson Hall, Whitson University
College Hill, MA  34109

Dear Professor Millington,

Thank you for your letter of March 16.  After careful consideration, I
regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me
an assistant professor position in your department. 

This year I have been particularly fortunate in receiving an unusually
large number of rejection letters.  With such a varied and promising field
of candidates, it is impossible for me to accept all refusals. 

Despite Whitson's outstanding qualifications and previous experience in
rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not meet my needs at
this time.  Therefore, I will assume the position of assistant professor
in your department this August.  I look forward to seeing you then. 

Best of luck in rejecting future applicants.

Chris L. Jensen

chewing gum

looky here

It reminds me of all the girls I knew in school and college who survived purely on diet coke and chewing gum. And looked like lollipops.
