Photo - leaves

randomosity.

right, well, i'm going to get the hallowe'en photos later. i shall scan them and make them into a pretty html document (i'm considering being evil and making an annoying animated gif background, but i may just not bother) and attempt to upload them either tomorrow or friday. assuming the network doesn't go down again, of course.

we just had a Random Lecturer (although i think he's a sociology lecturer, which makes him slightly less random) telling us that david brottman probably won't be back for a while, but that he is taking over the session for us. well, at least i don't have to do something else next semester, which is something, anyway. although it does mean we'll have had 9 weeks of teaching instead of 12, which is very annoying...

anyway. before i forget, i must go to the two websites i've been meaning to check for three days, now. one of which is this (i think i got that right), which is a long shot, but sounds interesting nonetheless.

i watched film 2003's nation's worst film poll result yesterday. titanic came in first, which is rather amusing. i was right all along! it's just three hours of nothing! ha!

*ahem* bitter? me? no...

just gave in a proposal of my proposal to carl tighe and dave ellis for independent studies. see, dave spoke to carl, and then spoke to me, saying that carl wasn't too happy with it because he'd had bad experiences with similar projects in the past, and advised me to speak to him myself. which i did, and he told me it sounded plausible and to speak to dave ellis again, and give him a copy of the proposal. excedt the creative writing actual proposal date is this friday, and the english one is, oh, in two weeks. so i've given them both rough drafts and apologetic/explanatory letters.

bah. i need to speak to both of them at once, but i have a feeling it won't happen...

in fact, i may just concede defeat and do the entire thing for english, doing the actual fanfiction origins/aspects/explanations/ideas for the first 40% and the analysis of fics themselves as the 60%, which is what dave thought i could do. it would save a lot of aggravation...

nothing much else to report, i don't think. i was going to do my thing for peevish but i can't be bothered, now...
