Basically the following events have taken place.....

1) The internet in my house decided to stop working, and although its now been fixed...
2) My laptop decided to die, I have no idea whats wrong with it but I haven't had time to get it sorted yet, and will prob wait till I go back to London in 10 days time for the Xmas holidays to sort it out.
3) I had a friends stag do in Prague (he's a bit older than me, 23) which was absolutely awesome, I just got back this morning.
4) I've met the most amazing girl so she's been taking up quite a lot of time :p
5) I've had a shitload of work to do which is important so I've been working my arse off (yes, its about time :D )

So I might not be around that much in the next week or so but when I get back to London and sort my laptop out and stuff I'll be back on more. I hope you've not been missing me too much, apologies if you were worried about me, I'm doing good :angel:

:sad: I've had that happen to me before. I think there's something about the Internet at this University that ruins computers... my first year I had a lot of computer problems and then the second year my computer completely died in the middle of my writing a 20 page paper... so then I got a laptop, the laptop died last year, and so far this laptop is holding up okay... but yeah... it sucks to have issues.

Late May. My school is offering a graduation trip through Europe, so I'm going on it.. lol. It starts in London, I think I'm there for 2-3 days, then we go to Paris. I know I will be in Paris on the 28th because I am getting tickets for the French Open on that day :lol:, then we go to Rome and Athens and then I hope, if I can find a decent flight, to come back to London again for a few days and go to the Queens qualifying. So I think I'm in London May 24-26 or so and then I should be there again June 9-11 (I hope).

I'm so excited!!! :D

I just had the revelation about Queens yesterday. I thought about staying for Wimbledon qualifying but that starts the 13th, and I would easily be able to save up and finance staying, but I would honestly have nothing to do in London for that long, so I decided against that.

Basically the following events have taken place.....

1) The internet in my house decided to stop working, and although its now been fixed...
2) My laptop decided to die, I have no idea whats wrong with it but I haven't had time to get it sorted yet, and will prob wait till I go back to London in 10 days time for the Xmas holidays to sort it out.
3) I had a friends stag do in Prague (he's a bit older than me, 23) which was absolutely awesome, I just got back this morning.
4) I've met the most amazing girl so she's been taking up quite a lot of time :p
5) I've had a shitload of work to do which is important so I've been working my arse off (yes, its about time :D )

So I might not be around that much in the next week or so but when I get back to London and sort my laptop out and stuff I'll be back on more. I hope you've not been missing me too much, apologies if you were worried about me, I'm doing good :angel:

I mean, RDucky/Jerry Seinfield/Mike Jones, says such stuff...but he always includes some sort of 'I'll get bashed for this' or a :tape: . I doubt he's kidding...but at least it's never directed at someone in particular...or for no apparent reason (it's usually a discussion on men vs. women...not whether a player will get banned or not... :rolleyes: ). I actually reported the post. Think that's only the 2nd or 3rd time I've done it in a year. It's not 'racist' but it's age and gender bashing...and I don't think that has a place in GM.

I actually pity him get stuck in this top-of-the-line-brand name mode.

I remembered I was working in a customer's office and this woman who I known for 2 days asked if my watch was a Gucci and I was like, WTF :rolleyes: but unfortunately, could not say it out loud.

I myself love brand name too but more because of the quality than the fashion.

I think he is very intelligent. To tell you the truth, I like his posts a lot. Very defiant.

His reply to Rosie is way out of line, though. I would go as far as saying it was plain rude and wicked.

He reminds me of myself when I was his age. I was fiesty, arrogant, rude, disrespectful, you name it, a real b****. I changed after I had my kids. I am becoming the complete opposite of what I was. Sometimes I think people see me as a fake, a too-good-to-be-true, but, now, I honnestly find it really hard to dislike anyone or hurt anyone. I think I am redeeming myself as a way to make up for my earlier mistakes. :D

Me too. My father always says: Expensive is cheap.

Most of my clothes are "signé" for the cut, the fit, the quality, the feel, the comfort. One thing though, I hate it when the brand name is too obvious. I try to buy things with the least noticeable logo.

I think he is very intelligent. To tell you the truth, I like his posts a lot. Very defiant.

His reply to Rosie is way out of line, though. I would go as far as saying it was plain rude and wicked.

He reminds me of myself when I was his age. I was fiesty, arrogant, rude, disrespectful, you name it, a real b****. I changed after I had my kids. I am becoming the complete opposite of what I was. Sometimes I think people see me as a fake, a too-good-to-be-true, but, now, I honnestly find it really hard to dislike anyone or hurt anyone. I think I am redeeming myself as a way to make up for my earlier mistakes. :D
:hug: I like him too. I really think that he just likes to challenge although I agree he shouldn't attack another person. Steve and Nate say hello! Plus I went to your cooking site- neat. Has it really been since 1998 since you updated?

She did not lift a finger, did not type a word, did not make one suggestion. All she did was post in the guestbook complaining about the "under construction" links. :haha:

She is not just my best friend, if I had a sister I would never love or cherish her like Nino. We are sisters by choice not by birth as they say. She is a great girl.

Er, probably a little bit. I think my mum especially would like me to marry a Jew. We're not religious (she kind of makes out she is at times but she's not) but I think she'd prefer me to be with a Jew. I reckon if I was happy then she'd be happy for me though.

I majored in it originally because I wanted some sort of cool exciting job, but once I got here I realized it doesn't offer me ANYTHING that I want in life. Mainly... a life in general. I'd like time off, job security, decent pay, lol.. and journalism.. if I even GOT a job, which would be difficult, would give me basically none of that.

I suppose you're doing a lot of analysis. Does Ohio have 'personal property' as well as 'real'?
