it’s not the best picture, but this is the tastiest food in the whole world and i’m getting taught how to make it on friday aaaawww shiiiiiiit yesssss.
heads up, i will be making this a lot back in the uk, because it’s probably on a level par to chilli in terms of my favourite foods.
this is getting to be fucking ridiculous. i’m sitting here and jamie’s just walked through to the loo and shaved (i’m guessing). now he showered this morning, but i get the impression that he doesn’t realise he needs to use fucking soap, because i’m now getting the typically vile fucking smell that he emits, but it’s now got a slight smell of shaving foam to take the edge off. really though, how fucking difficult is it not to be a smelly bastard? in my life i’ve never met anyone like this. and bear in mind that i’ve now lived in a country where people fucking sit on hot trains for days without washing.
how the fuck could you just sit in your own stink like that and not give a shit? how the fuck could you have gone to the supermarket where there are a group of about 10 ladies that fucking harass you into buying shampoo or soap or something and not realised that normal people buy this shit?
the plan for today is to try to read some of the tediously boring books i bought for my kindle (the definitive guide to political ideology, histoire de france; both of which are something hideous like 400 pages), then pop out for polo for lunch in like, an hour.
then i’ll whip out my study cap and do some chinese, french and maths. yes i have not been in formal education for a year but i’ve still got an assload of exams to work for (i’m going to do the chinese proficiency test back in the uk, i think the next exam’s in november, i’ve got a maths a-level to prepare for (lol i know), and french at uni).
i should also probably look into finding out what i need to know for the hsk. i’ll maybe ask vivian to help me out with that one.
today’s also laundry and cleaning day so i’ll squeeze that in, too.
it’s also quite a nice day so i might take some pictures of fukang in the summer.
so today the big question on my mind is ‘is it appropriate to have a drink before 12’ because i’ve still got 3 bottles of whisky in the flat and a bottle of coke in the fridge, and let’s face it it’ll be a struggle to drink all that booze before i leave.
i’m going to go to bed and catch up on the sleep that i’ve been needing to catch up on for about three days now.
then i have to study languages and maths tomorrow because even though i’ve now been out of formal education for a year i just can’t escape exams
This is important because it reaches into the heart of the modern British nation. On the one hand there is a publicly funded institution that broadcasts and supports an idea of Britain that many people believe has had its day and on the other hand there is a voice of modern Britain that is being denied its place to be heard. The role of the BBC is to be impartial and to voice all opinions of the British people and not to project only the ‘audience expectations’ of the BBC Board of Governors. I feel the BBC is badly off target when it comes to understanding it’s role in modern society and I think that only a massive public response will wake them from their slumber.
This was about a month ago. The lake was still frozen, even though it was about 15-20 degrees at the time, and had been above 0 for about a month. That’s just how cold the winter was here.
I’ve got a day off tomorrow, so this is what I’m planning:
