Many happy returns!!
And a belated Happy Birthday from me Twinky
Now to follow the pirate theme for today...
[Mad Pirate Shay] Argh! Avast there me hearties! A pint of rum for the good lady, and who wants to be walking the plank? [/Mad Pirate]
*drowns her sorrows in rum*
I didn't get the job.
How evil that is.
I say we lead a ruthless campaign against the foolish corporation.

Sorry to hear that, Rach
It wasn't all bad, they'll 'keep my details on file' and they did refund my travel expenses (all Â£16 of it).
At least they gave you your fare - have to trek it to London on Wednesday (which is going to cost me Â£50...), and I'm not sure if the company will refund that
Still, they've got your details, so here's hoping
EDIT: Managed to confuse the post button with the faces one... (No, I don't know how either...)
Why is it going to cost you that much to get to London?
You should get a student railcard, that gives you 1/3 off rail fares.
Twinky: I have to travel during peak-time to be there by 9am, so the train company fleeces you for mouchos monies... Normally only costs about Â£20 off peak
Richie: Believe it or not, that's including the 1/3 off with a railcard...
Still, all is well - off to visit a friend near London for the next few days, so it'll only cost me Â£5.80. Ah, so great to be able to cheat the system
I've found that it saves money if you try getting singles instead of returns if you go before 9:30
For me to get attend my Uni course on the days I start at 9am, a return would cost me about Â£34 and I'd get minimal discount because I'm going early.
But, buying a single out and a single back means I get a good reduction on the return single because I'm going home in the afternoon. I've now reduced my fare to Â£17, and the days that I go in later I can buy returns cos after 9:30 they are very cheap.

Now, to continue my little social experiment... So - about the ice cream...?
EDIT: And Hal - you're the one responsible for the Barbie banner in the RPF?!? Did I miss something? I feel I may have to get violent if I see pink again...
My team won the Forum Feud championship. RPF lost
So you're to blame for the Barbie banner then, Hal?
Of course, I think you should change it back to the Happy Feet one - everyone obviously hated that one more than the Barbie one...
*curls up in corner of bar with hot chocolate*
I had a bad dream.
It's just your brain being creative while you're asleep.
Did you manage to get some sleep in the end? Hope the HC helped
It was fine. I went to bed at 1, woke up at 5, then back to bed at like 6, then woke up at 10.
So that's roughly the full 8 hours.
I don't think hal and spike's admin powers let them do what you dreamt, it's ok.
I believe that dreamt is the only English word that ends with "mt"
Well unless hal and spike control zombies, they're not responsible.
