Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Just a quick note...

...to say that I'd really appreciate hugs, prayers, and general good vibes for huntingospray, who right now is sitting her OU exam for this year's course. (For some reason we're not sure of, she's sitting her at home.) She's pretty optimistic of a good result - she's had good marks in her TMAs and she's normally pretty okay at exams - but it would just be nice to know folks are thinking of her.

This is her penultimate year; she's actually had a break of a few years, what with her dad's death, our wedding and then our move of house - but she seems to be very solidly back in the swing of things, which makes me happy. She also gets on well with her tutor group (which meets in St. Albans), and indeed they had a trip to the British Museum together a while back. I think that was informal rather than part of the course.

Anyway, yeah.

In entirely other news...

...I'm sorry, but this story makes me absolutely disgusted. Sorry to sound like a grumpy old man, but really, whatever is the world coming to when people have such a low regard for other people? They should be ashamed of themselves for acting like that. But, kudos to the guy who shouted at the youths and the driver who offered the woman a lift.

Fanvid thought.

Someone really ought to do a History Boys vid set to Pet Shop Boys' Hey, Headmaster.

Or if someone has, I need a link to it. :-)

(There is of course the possibility that "someone" might have to be me...)

I hate...

...to an utterly stupid degree, taking my Metformin pills.

In fairness, it's not the fact that they're pills, it's the fact that they're so unpleasantly large. My Citalopram pills are far smaller, and far more copablewith. Which I don't think it a real word, it's one I made up. But you get the gist.

But anyway, I hate 'em.
