Meme: Where I was when…

Sorry to make my first post for a couple of weeks a meme. I was much busier than I expected last week, and with a grand prix this week my blogging activities were focussed on vee8. I’ll still be busy this week but Steven Hill has tagged me in a meme and these are quick […]

Seven songs

I have been freshly tagged in a meme by Chris. It’s a seven songs meme. Here are the instructions: “List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your spring. […]

Ten excellent blogs

Several weeks ago Shane Richmond of the Telegraph included this among ten excellent blogs. This is a meme which means I have been tagged. I didn’t do it at the time because I was busy dealing with the best laxative nature has to offer, exams. It’s quite convenient though because I’ve been meaning to point […]

In lieu of proper blogging, a meme

In case you were wondering, this is an even more quiet place than usual just now because I have exams at the moment. Sorry I’ve not been more active at replying to comments in recent weeks. I found the first exam more stressful than I should have, so I decided to take today off to […]

Some more fun with US politics

A few months back I wrote about a quiz that tells you which US Presidential candidate to vote for. Obviously I don’t have a vote, but it is still fun to try it out and see what comes up. The election has been in the news this week, so it’s worth taking a look at […]

A bit of fun with US politics

I came across another of those political quizzes. This one matches you up with the US Presidential candidates. It’s quite smart. You can choose which topics you’re interested in by distributing 20 points among 14 categories. I gave one point to each category then bumped up a few areas where I feel strongest. It then […]

That spinning woman again

A few weeks ago I blogged about a test that purported to tell you whether you are “right brained” or “left brained”. I have just spotted an update to this on the excellent Freakonomics blog. The smart thing is that they’ve actually done a rough and ready study of the results. In my original post […]

It was war. It is war

Hello there. I’m still really busy at the moment. It’s the last week of teaching at university, and with that comes a deluge of coursework hand-ins. Still, they are all quite interesting so it doesn’t feel too much like hard work, so it is consuming a lot of my time. Typical that this would be […]

Ohh, so that’s how memes start!

As Chris Applegate says, this was absolutely screaming out to be a meme. Jawbox has done it aswell. But I refrained from calling it a meme in my post because I didn’t want to be responsible for starting one. Looks like I’m getting the blame for it anyway. Uhh, it was his fault! No, his! […]
