The Wait


My last exam is over. Fingers crossed I won't be resitting it again.

Alas, I'm beset with a swathe of free time. I actually don't know what to do with myself now there's nothing to procreastinate from :S

I'm up for meeting some of you *looks expectantly at Rhythmic and Savi3* soonish :D

Social discrimination

Whilst we're on the subject of discrimination - what exactly is the point of the Single Sex Equality Bill?

The powers that be are looking to make male-priority social clubs illegal. Female members (who currently join/guest on a second-class footing) will be legally able to access all areas of clubs that are as yet inaccessible to them.

I don't see why the policy-makers are getting so het up on this; women have excluded men via the Women's Institute and the Ladies Circle for a very long time. There are certain topics that are easier to discuss among one's own gender, in addition to the comfort in not being subliminally subjected to sexual interest. Why exactly has the faith-school monger got her heart set on taking this comfort zone away from men?

Written exam over.... we've just got the practical to be getting on with....and the small matter of results and the rest of life!

The future at present makes me ill - opportunities seem to be given and snatched back; a £21k writing job was too good to be true; my professional writer friends with firsts in Literature don't even earn that!

So yeah, the rest of life. Well, Omid Djalili was a disappointment - he just repeated his usual terrorist/kebab shop jokes and did his annoying dance. Why, oh, why do crap comedians get so much airtime (or indeed, an entire series)? Is it cos they is black?

In the case of the aforementioned examples, I'm convinced it is. I'm sick and tired of minorities (LGBT like Alan Carr included) of representing whilst less competent than their mainstream equivalents. Positive discrimination leads to resentment on the part of those not judged on their merits, like my colleague in the aforementioned article, in addition to an exodus of talent elsewhere. The incentive to try one's best disappears when mediocrity starts to rise.

Tonight Matthew...

I'm going to be watching the X Factor at 1840 and Omid Djallili at 2130.

I can't wait!

Here's that article I was banging on about earlier.

Duck, Duck, Goose

I've become a bit boring this week - things have guided happenings, not my good self. I've also been a bit spoilt ;)

  • There's been the aforementioned interview with the handsome Reggae crew.

  • There's been FPAS job applications.

  • The departure of my grandfather.

  • The arrival of his brother and sister-in-law.

  • The receipt of top-class Ghiradelli goodies from my lovely American Aunt.

  • The seeing of some patients and a perfect Pot-Roasted Duck at the Petersham. Note the patients were not inspected as part of the dish preparation - cirrhosed foie gras would NOT be a good idea!

  • The highlight of my week has been the Sarkozy's new singledom Grand Prebois 2006 I had to accompany the duck.

    I have also entertained thoughts of watching Marylin Manson play Wembley on my results day; he ranks amongst my top 10 of people I most want to see (the rest being Jacko, Mariah Carey, Korn, Sevendust, Placebo, Mary J Blige, SOAD, Take That and COF). Just not sure whether I'd want to be a) in Wembley (shit venue which is a pain to get to) or b) at a gig upon failing. I suppose I should keep the venue number in my phone. Results come out at three, and I could easily call then. Decisions, decisions.

    'til next time,
