Managed to find a photo of Tim Curry at a recent signing session he did at his home. Wish I hadn't though.
His home looks nice.

Scored 1 error less than the winner of the National Dictation (that's a sort of classy Test The Nation that deals with spelling). Second year in a row I could've won that.

Didn't pass the preliminaries. There's a massive pre-test to see who gets in (it's an almost snooty event, held in the Dutch senate). It's easy to do any of your spelling checking at home, IF you happen to have both the latest editions of the Groene Boekje spelling guide AND the most recent official dictionary. I have neither since by Dutch law, spelling is revised every 5 years (last time they decided not to make any changes but the 2005 amendments were met with harsh criticism), not to mention both books are rather expensive and I don't really see the point of owning them. Thus I can't cheat on the preliminaries, thus I can't get in; there's only 20 slots available for thousands of Dutch contestants.

Not much happening.
I'm making my christmas card something special. My happy holidays drawing was finished on the 10th but for all my vision impaired friends I wanted to do something to listen to. So I recorded after much finnicking four audio files of me reading several stories from the Bulgarian classic Bai Ganyo, which I love.
Through BB Flashback I unfortunately can't upload to Youtube anymore, so I made an account at the Dutch video site Zie.nl.

Checked out the videos there: turns out the audio skips. BAAAH! :swear:

Long time no visit.

As I said in my last post in September, I've been really busy. I've had some difficult decisions to make. I've withdrawn from pure maths honours because I wasn't really happy. Next year I'm returning to undergraduate study of physics and applied maths which is much more my thing, so the PhD is going to take a bit longer than I'd originally hoped. None the less I've taken a major reality check and I'm now a lot happier with how things are progressing.

I started visiting zappa.com a little more regularly a couple of weeks ago after having a long break with rare visits, but I'm already sick of it. Bonny, you've probably seen my last post there, I got a bit angry with the psychobabble some of the people there go on about and I blew up at a couple of them. I should stay away altogether - it's dominated by some really sad over analytical weirdos. That downer mydnite is really starting to piss me off. I think he just hasn't gotten over Frank's death and nothing else is ever going to be good enough for him - perhaps he should try immolation.

Anyway, I will try to keep in touch more regularly here as this place always seems more grounded to me. I hope everyone is having a good festive season.

Addendum: I fell off the wagon and left two more replies at zappa.com. They are none the less fairly calm and considered compared to the earlier one.

Hey Poly, good to see you here again!
I try to dodge any political debate over at Zappa.com. You've probably spotted the Debate topic, and how that is going wrong. No forum debate is worth getting angry over, absolutely no-one, and if you are being bullied, just leave, remember your company is your addition to a better forum and if they don't like it they can shove it.
