I’ve been watching your world from afar
I’ve been trying to be where you are
And I’ve been secretly falling apart
To me, you’re strange and you’re beautiful
You’d be so perfect with me
But you just can’t see
You turn every head but you don’t see me

“Strange and Beautiful (I’ll put a spell on you)” – Aqualung.

Currently, there’s a slight obsession going around with people who attended Rojak. They seem to be addicted to the song “Endlessly” by B44. I downloaded the song and since I’m a hopeless (but cynical) romantic, I had thought the song would appeal to me. As it turns out, I found it way too soppy. I prefer a more angst piece, as above. Fit, young boyish blokes just don’t do it for me. I need druggies who are revelling in their miseries. Haha!

Speaking of druggies, the result of the Warwick Boar , “Drugs, Sex and Rock & Roll” survey came out today. As biased as it may be (7% of Warwick population are virgins but 100% are for sex before marriage), the results were pretty interesting. For instance, 26% of the Warwick population is homophobic (!!). I was quite surprised at that, I thought we were quite liberal. As interesting as it may be talking about sex, the substance abuse bit was the one that did it for me.

80% of the Warwick population (or the ones who were bothered to actually hand in the bloody survey) have actually taken drugs, of which  14% of 80% (that is 0.14 x 0.80 = 11.2 %) have smoked banana skins. Banana skins? I’ve never heard of such thing. According to a friend, who shall remain anonymous to protect his identity (hmm…suspicious), you can get quite high on them. Really?

Now before the lot of you run off to your local Costcutters and get yourself a pound of bananas to smoke up on, I did a little research on the net to see if banana skins can really be used to get high. What I did find out was that you can’t get high on banana skins. It was a joke that came out in the 1960s from a book called “Anarchist Cookbook”. Hmm, that explains the reason why bananas haven’t been banned from supermarkets yet.

Finance test tomorrow!! I’ve transcended stress and worry for it. That’s because my Econometrics test results are coming out for it. My lovely seminar tutor, Dr. Clare Kelly (literally lovely apparently, I’ve heard the comments made by the guys in my class) has already depressed me enough, when she was kind enough to go through the test RIGHT AFTER we took it. Apparently I was so pale after that review session, people thought I was ill.

Currently chatting with Krista!! I haven’t spoken to her in ages! It’s really great hearing from her. She has the most exciting love life in the world. My love life is beyond stagnant compared to hers. It’s like fossilized. But that’s Krista for you. She’s very, very cute and all the guys love her.

I think I ought to go bed now. I’m going to do a bit more studying and then risk the test tomorrow. Sigh. But I should look on the bright side of things. I’ll be watching Harry Potter right after the test. (Sure, I’m slow, but, hey, it’s called time-constraints!)
