Slightly addicted to TED Talks at the moment and to give you an idea of the gravity of said addiction, http://www.ted.com/ can overtaken Facebook in my most frequented haunt in cyberspace! Seems that seeing the latest drunken antics of someone i sat beside in Mrs Newell's Maths class can't compete with watching someone give a talk about condoms in Thailand or the evolution of poverty. Yesyes, all very highbrow stuff!
Speaking of Facebook; saw quite possibly the most depressing status update in all my time scanning the home page for the latest. So 'she-who-shall-not-be-named' decided to update the world on the fact that she 'needs some excitement'. This all very well and dandy except that this was followed by 'i've been engaged, i've got married, i've had kids..what next?' Sweet jebus, the girl is the same age as me and she's pretty much reached her peak at the grand old age of 23...she's bored. Maybe the status was written in a fleeting moment of frustration, so here's hoping that her grand ideas of emigrating Down Under don't materialise in her search for said excitement!
On an unrelated note, Halloween has been and gone. Was a tame affair compared to last years antics that saw guests catching fire, smashing pumpkins, frenchmen dressed as mexicans (or is that Mexican's dressed as frenchmen?) gategrashing the party and falling asleep in my flatmate's bed, almost severed thumbs (actually, the blood from aforementioned accident really added to the decorations)
