Okay, so the TV license thing is sorted. Apparently it's the TV licensing people who are being idiots, because I contacted the landlords and they say they've paid it. It's in the contract as well (I checked) so if the TV people do come round I shall point at clause 3 and give them the landlord's address. ^_^

However, I have just realised that I need to have a complete title for my dissertation to be handed in by next Wednesday and I need to have agreed on this with my dissertation supervisor by then... having arranged a meeting I haven't arranged yet. ^_^;;

Everyone point to the person who's really really really screwed. *points to self*

I need to email my dissertation supervisor yesterday... and I'm still putting it off.

I do, however, have Zeppelin II now, which I am listening to. Woo! I also just educated one of my housemates in classic rock (she'd never heard stairway to heaven... O.o;;). I might have demanded that she sit down and listen... I didn't tie her down or anything. But I forced her to listen to that (she liked it - obviously) and the full version of American Pie... and a little Cheap Trick various other things.

There will be Beef Stroganoff for dinner tonight, which I am looking forward to. However the recipe was chosen and will be prepared by someone who is lactose intolerant. We're looking into getting her some counselling for her obvious suicide wish.

I have also found the perfect present for my brother (or me) only it's £120 so I am left staring at it longingly and being all mopey. Given that his birthday is on Monday it's a little late anyway. Perhaps I should send him an email saying 'this is what I'd get you if I were rich. LINK to awesome present.

I have no idea why I'm posting so often at the moment, probably some sort of procrastination technique from pretty much everything.

I had my seminar this morning, which I was nowhere near prepared enough for and it turns out that, as I am one of only two people in the class who has studied Old Norse previously I need to prepare a presentation on Old Norse Poetry for next Friday Morning. *groan*

That's pretty much all. I may post again once I have watched Spn 4x06 (which I know nothing about. I'm actually quite happy now. The only spoilers I had were for an earlier episode so now I am blissfully spoiler free again (hence default icon).

I'm going to go now... I have to email people and generally lament the fact that I have done no work...

My brother's home, which is decidedly odd, since I'm sure he was coming home in a few weeks anyway, but no one ever tells me anything, so I guess I'll just have to put up with 'he's back because he missed us' I'vw sworn about 3 times this weekend, but no one was around at any of those times, and again it was only the non-swearword swearword, but still - I should really stop talking to myself because it is, apparently at those times that I am the most potty mouthed.

Hmm, so that means I owe Jess 3p... I'm trying I really am, maybe I should up the penalty a bit.

But I really don't need to lose any money right now because I have just watched a repeat and decided that there are yet more DVDs I need to buy. Firefly and Serenity are out of the way now, and Gundam Wing is almost complete... but I have a sneaking suspicion that I'm never going to get the whole of Farscape, because really the number of eps you get per DVD is appalling. Hn.My tendency to get obsessive disturbs me sometimes. If I could ever find a happy middle ground where I just liked something I would probably be so much better at life.

I'm sure obsessive nature is one of the signs of sociopathic tendencies or something.

But life's so much more interesting this way, never knowing whether I'll still be interested in the thing I bought last week this week... and the compulsive part of my nature meaning if I'm going to have part of something I have to have all of somiething, otherwise it just doesn't work.

It's like starting to watch something half way through - I have to go back and watch the beginning, then I have to watch all the episodes I've already seen again.

Did I mention I worry me?

ALso - Peacekeeper Wars is on five this week - 9-midnight... they decided not to split it up which may or maynot be a good idea. The joyous possibility that they may reshow farscape is helpful - but they'd probably do it at midnight nd I'd need to record it all - which would make my family all nice and happy and moany.

Now all I have to do is choose a university, isn't that going to be fun.

My brother wants the PC...
