I have a petition for the British people among you.

Save the Royal Surrey Hospital.

Basically, they're threatening to close this (bloody huge) hospital because of cutbacks, when ambulances in the area already have too far to go to hit the target time to get from hospital to emergency. Which means... people who have accidents or become ill in my area (and it is a very large area) either have to go private, which most can't afford, or face a minimum half-hour journey just to get to the hospital.

Anyone remember me talking about this? That was the hospital she was taken to after her accident, and it was one of two units in the country that had a) a place to land nearby and b) the equipment necessary to stabilize her. Count 'em. Two. And they want to close one.

Please sign the petition if you think this is wrong/dumb/ill-advised?

Thank you.

1) Well, back at Uni.

2) The brand new wireless thinger we were upgraded to at the end of last term has turned out to be far worse than the one we had before - housemate Debbie was on the phone for about an hour last night trying to fix it, but nothing. They're sending us a new one, while in the meantime it cuts out every five-ten minutes. AIM, for this reason, is a bit out of the question. I'm actually fairly zen about it, since I have a lot of work to do these next couple of days, and enforced lack of AIM might help me get down to it... but boy will I be angry if it's still like this by Friday.

3) Courses... well, actually, the two I've had so far have been on the dull side. Worryingly enough, one was Magic and Superstition, but I'll hold out, since he was just wittering on about how this was 'cultural history' we were doing, and going over the course outline, rather than just getting down to teaching. English Society... well, I had her last year. You know those people that put pauses

really randomly in the middle of sentences for no apparent reason? Yes. That's her. It makes her supremely difficult to listen to without drifting off, especially since she is the living, female equivalent of Professor Binns. (I have nothing against dates and rebellions, I just think there's a little more to the subject, you know?) Mind you, it did give me the giggles when she said "...The Glorious Revolution, which I started

Really, Prof? Wow, looking good for your age,

...talking about at the beginning of this lecture."


4) Hoboy. I need a to-do list: a) Finish Bibliography and essay plan, b) If possible, write out introduction, c) Wash hair, if possible, no time tomorrow, d) TAG SLOWTIMES sorryDebi. e) Renew paid accounts, f) Bed EARLY. Oh, and g) Clean, since it's my job this week.

5) A lot of people are having a bad time lately, looks like. :( It really sucks when that happens, and there's nothing that can be done except distribute virtual hugs. Hopefully it's partly January Blues - dull days do tend to bring you down, especially when there's other problems, too. Hope everyone feels better, soon.

6) Dammit, Professor Livesey, I WANT MY ESSAY. *Stamps foot* Other people have theirs! Thursday before Christmas, yeah, right.

7) *Sigh* Stuck here for an hour and a half. Talk to me? *Puppy eyes*
rowanberries: (Bang bang no more problem!)
Oh, and is there a lot this week. Safe to say I wasn't impressed

Even more incoherent than usual due to watching live )

Man. Next week looks interesting. Or has the potential to be, at least in comparison to that.

...Let's see.

I'm depressed for no apparent reason.

I slept for an incredibly long time after going to bed very early - and still feel tired.

Numerous half-aches all over the place.

Hello, Time of the Month, how nice of you to announce yourself ahead of time.


Cut for the male members of flist who cannot cope, poor fragile souls )

I think I'ma go watch some 24. 'Cause you know however bad your day is? Jack Bauer's is worse.

See this? This is my furious face.


What the fuck. Just... what. Actors have been chosen for visual appearance of 'tousled enough to pass for the time period' or 'soap/porn star.'

The only other woman with a decent speaking part apart from Marion had the most obvious makeup I have EVER seen, and blatantly modern hair. They all did, apart from Marion. What is wrong with hair extensions? Or hiring an actress with naturally long hair? If you can't afford extensions, try the novel concept of PUTTING THEIR HAIR UP. ALL the actors are unconvincing, saying each line as though it is a catch phrase, and one they are halfhearted about at best. The actors playing Guy of Gisbourne and the Sherriff seem to have been chosen because the former looks vaguely like Alan Rickman and the latter sounds like him. The action sequences are frequent and boring as hell, not to mention nonsensical - what sort of plan is 'we'll give them something to shoot at' then riding out unshielded? More to the point, why is the random redheaded sidekick pointing out a line of archers directly in front of the Heroes, and going 'archers, master!' as if we can't fucking see them?

And no, directors, copious amounts of slow-mo and random zooming in does not make anything more interesting. We know Marion pitched in, and it's blatantly obvious Robin does too, you don't need to zoom in on a visual clue. Idiots.

Hate. Hate hate. Take it away, it's shit.

Poor effort all round, guys.

In conclusion? Failed effort. Bring back Marion and her Merry Men, plz?
