Back to the music thing, I own most of my music on CDs. I've got quite the collection.

Guys, I am just going to have to tell you that I plan on being an English teacher, and we don't make much money. So I might not be able to pitch in for the plastic balls. Is there anything I could trade you for them? I have ... not much. Some shoes, some clothes and some purses. I think most of you are all guys, so that doesn't do you any good. Hermaj, though, she is a lady and so she might trade.

i meant that you'd have other qualities that would mean we'd want you at our commune. Like help with our spellig?

I will go some shoes! Shoes are pretty good. Bags/purses are also fantastic. Anyway we all like you, so I don't think you really need to barter your way in!

We do indeed have Irn-Bru. Man, that stuff was pretty good. I will have to keep some bottles handy for both parties and after parties.

And you should definitely come here at least once. You are Scottish, right? The ladies love that over here.

yep, scottish born and bred. and the scottish ladies don't give you extra cred for being from the same country as them, so this might work out well for me...

accents = big hit with opposite sex
and rachel, i'm sure once the plastic balls / commune are established, it won't cost that much to keep it all running, i mean, what 10+ people paying electric, water and gas bills (plus a food etc) = less money each person has to pay,
oh and internet etc fees

Guys. GUYS! I really wish I could move to Australia. No joke, it is boring where I am. I ... shit. I am kind of drunk right now. Geez. Lots of people will probably think less of me after reading this. I will probably forget that I posted it before I come back on here. I am going in to work in about two hours. Still gonna be drunk, probably. Luckily, I am a hostess and that is okay? I don't really know. Oh goddamn. Commune time, shit yeah. I will be an English teacher in Australia and if we get lots of people will totally pitch in on rent or something. I am so bored here with the people and the stuff and the drinking and the stuff. Guys. Okay, I'm sorry. Please ignore this. Maybe tomorrow (later today) I will come back and edit out the part that says I am going to work kind of drunk. That is usually a bad thing.

We won't tell anyone. I don't have enough money to be drunk right now, which sucks because it seems like an appropriate thing to do after exams.

Just thought I'd throw this out there, because it is something that amuses me.

Right now, on Australian Idol, an Irish guy is singing Pavarotti, completely in Italian. (And doing a marvellous job). The other male Idol left is South African.

If you are still having trouble deciding, just think - you could be on Idol!

but yeah
i dunno, i can think of many other things i'd rather be doing than watching reality tv
1) juggling
2) throwing cards at my little brother
3) reading xkcd
4) sticking needles in my eyes

Well, I have a pretty good excuse. One computer. One television. Same room. Idol-watching family. I don't mind Idol that much, but if you make me watch Big Brother, or the Biggest Loser, or anything with dancing, I will quite readily throw the televison out the window.

My computer monitor is as big as the family tv :-) And the internet is marginally more interesting than tv. Most of the time.

I tend to do both. I am a skilled multitasker! There are not that many shows I go out of my way to watch, but there are some I won't miss - Spicks and Specks, for one, if anyone knows it. It's a music quiz show with all these great names from comedy and music. And Hamish Blake, who I am sure one day will find me. :P

Yup. Spicks And Specks is cool. So is The Glasshouse, which is on later. Apart from that the only TV I watch is The Simpsons and Futurama. Oh... and Mythbusters.

Er, yes, PPOR = Post Proof Or Retract. Sorry, I spend too much time on other message boards. ;) It's a useful acronym for situations where lots of unfounded BS is being spouted, because they either have to do some investigation and learn something or simply ignore you, which is rude.

So one of two things applies here with all of this television talk. I either [1] have not heard of the show because I am fairly certain you are all in a completely different country or [2] don't know what the heck you're talking about because I don't watch television. But hey! It sounds exciting, that television thing.

That's okay, rachel, when/if you come here, we will sit you down every Wednesday night at 8:30 and introduce you to the pure joy encapsulated in a programme that is Spicks and Specks. Then, you will know. :D

Also, yay! Chaser! I am waiting for them to come back. And Happy Tree Friends and Friends. Is that ever coming back on SBS? I think they replaced it with the anime you mentioned, myoumyouou, but I would rather see cute woodland creatures beat up on each other. And Harvey Birdman, which was also excellent.
