What sort of time do you call this?

Oh, right, morning... This is what revision does to you - I have to be up and doing stuff at a "reasonable hour"... Which basically means, reading through my Prolog notes. At some point I may go into Uni to get hold of the past exam papers on Logic Programming, just to see what sort of things I'm expected to know - it would be easier than reading the whole of my textbook on it, certainly.

And at some point today, I really ought to go shopping - I have no bread, very little marmite, no cheese slices, no pepperoni... That pretty much means I can't make any of my favourite foods (actually, it only takes an absence of bread for that), which in turn means I'll not get to eat much. But I have like 13 hours before I actually need to go to the shop, so that's okay.

I rather pity anybody who didn't watch Big Brother last night - it had such a classic TV moment, when Alex was doing his nominations. Roughly paraphrased,
The first person I want to nominate is Jonny, because he openly admits that he pee'd in the shower, and that's disgusting. The second person I want to nominate is Alison, because she also admits that she pee'd in the shower, and I think it's disgusting
It was classic... He's talking to people about how Jonny's friends and girlfriend are inevitably going to judge him for peeing in the shower, because it's disgusting, and nobody does it. Right... That kid is gonna get some surprises when he comes out of the house and finds out just how wrong he is... Oh, and Spencer's nominations were excellent - when he's animated, he's really cool... It's just a shame that usually, he doesn't do much...
I'd like to nominate Alison, just because out of everyone here, she's annoyed me a bit. It's not something I'd even bring up if it weren't for nominations... Oh, and she's got a double bed. And I want it.
Well, it kept me entertained anyway...

The Tunisian national side are really poor at passing. That's all I have to say on the subject of the World Cup right now.

I should really think about getting dressed and going shopping now. And since LiveJournal is down for maintenance, I think I'll do that now...

*wanders off*

Right, I'm back, and I bought lots of "essentials" (read: frozen pizza, bread, cheese, marmite, pepperoni)... All went fine... While out, I had a realisation - the other week, I was talking about how in Attack of the Clones, we learn that the Stormtroopers in Star Wars are actually genetically identical to Boba Fett, and how amusing that is - the stormtroopers are the same as the guy who was killed by blind Han Solo with a stick, hardly a ringing endorsement of their abilities. But then I remembered - the Storm Troopers were never that great in the first place, they got their asses kicked by a bunch of f'ing teddy bears on Endor...

The things that cross my mind......

Being a cotton-pickin Yank, I've noooo idea what is this 'marmite' to which you refer and my curiosity is piqued.

I've previously heard of it, yet had never come into contact with anyone that had chosen to partake...

...would you mind enlightening me?

It describes itself as "Yeast Extract", and is typically spread on toast, or used as an ingredient in sauces... One of their major selling points is "You either love it or you hate it" - some people think it tastes absolutely divine (I happen to think this), others think it's foul.

In my opinion, it goes best when mixed with peanut butter in a toasted sandwich - the two tastes combine to make a taste that's very much different to either of them, and it's great :o)

hahahaha!

Note to self:
- Apply to marketing department at Marmite, BestFoods Company.

Hm, peanut butter that doesn't taste like peanut butter... I think this calls for some hands on research.

thankyouthankyou.


The Australian Big Brother is such a Nazi. He gets really harsh on the housemates if he doesnt like their reasons for nominations.

Yeah, ours too now... It's apparently to fuel the differences between people, by forcing them to consider what they don't like about each other. Which is fair enough, I guess - it beats the people who say "I think he misses his pet beetle" and stuff... :o)

I guess I must be in the minority as well cos I find the thought of someone peeing in the shower pretty awful!

Interesting... In our flat, 1/5 people (one out of five, rather than a fifth) said it was really bad, and 4/5 people said that they might or might not have, and that they weren't going to say while the first person was still present ;o)

Wow - now if we extrapolate that to the 60 odd million in England we have a result! ;0)

Re: woz Expand
BTW, I don't think that it's necessarily a minority who thinks it's bad - but it's a good deal more accepted than the guy thinks...

i don't think the stormtroopers circa-a new hope are clones... my main reasons for thinking this is that there was no reason to believe they were clones prior to attack of the clones, and in all the star wars offshoot stuff when the 'troopers are characters and not cannon fodder they're just people, trained up and all that.

besides, boba never asked vader how his brothers were...

anyway, i'm not even remotely an expert on star wars, so i'm just gonna stop arguing anyway... it's the most retarded scifi around (but it's so much fun! richie has a lightsabre!). hehe...

I think they are, to be honest. The similarities are there, they're deliberate, and when you look at it, the clones are in actual fact fighting on the side of the emperor - I have every confidence that Storm Troopers will be revealed to be second-generation clones (although without the kiwi accents)...

Boba doesn't know, simple as that.

But yet the best ;o)

I hate to sound like the geek I am, but I can tell you for a fact that storm troopers are *not* clones. This is really based upon the knowledge of my friend who is an absolute Star Wars addict, but apparently the only requirements for being a storm trooper is that you are over six foot tall, and Hans Solo says at one point, I think, that he applied to be one but he was too short, or something.

Hmm. Personally, I don't think they are. I daresay that when the Jedi were on the run from the Emperor and Vader they would've scrubbed a lot of information from official banks including any mention of the cloning planet.

and, yes, they're a lame army ;) i think they're more there to inspire terror and order in an existing nation than fight others - weapons of terror rather than weapons of war.

oh, and Babylon 5 is by far the best scifi universe ;)

i barely even consider Star Wars scifi. its more futuristic fantasy. think about it, the heroic knight has to rescue the princess from the huge castle ;) he even has his band of followers and an enemy ;)

you're probably right, in that this will be "revealed" in the next film... there's not been any evidence of this previously, and there has been contrary evidence in previous star wars stuff, but george lucas is not exactly a big fan of continuity, and if it suits him to make them clones they will be. heh.

Boba doesn't know, simple as that.

that was a joke...

But yet the best ;o)

ooh, don't get me started, you bad, bad boy... ;P

i agree with arthur c. clarke - it's a very enjoyable fantasy.
