It doesn't really matter, though, because the old one is still running. I haven't switched off the projectors yet.

I took away your keys for the projector room before you could make a copy.

In other news, I think that I may be about to start cussing blindly and throwing things around the room, because it's struck me that I may have done completely the wrong reading for my essay that's due tomorrow.

Factor in the fact that a) it's already 9:30pm and that b) I'm a good half hour's walk away from the only library that's still open and that may have some of the correct books in it, and I'm feeling absolutely hollow at the moment.

Die, Thread™.

I don't use aspirin or brandy, but garlic, pepper and honey are good.

Garlic is horrible.

Die, Thread™.
I know you're going to give me three million excuses why you can't but you really need to get your ass to bed and sleep. I know, you have a ton of work to do, you have an essay tomorrow, this quarter is hell but if you don't take care of yourself, you may not make it to the end of the quarter. At some point, you'll need to decide when it's time to quit for the night and get yourself in a better sleeping pattern. I'm trying to do that myself. But the less sleep you get, the more mistakes like that you're going to make.

/lecture mode

Edit: I hope you aren't mixing the garlic, pepper and honey. :O

It's past 10.30 here, which would be worse.

But you say you may have been reading the wrong books. My suggestion is to continue on the path you are on, since it's too late to change now. Do the best you can with it. If it was wrong, you'll have to do it over, but it's no use worring about it now.

I second Melanie's lecture.

Not usually, no. (In case someone doesn't get it, I was referencing Melanie's sig.) But if you're making a tomato sauce, those three ingredients fit well. A little honey (or sugar) brings out the flavour of the tomatoes.

For medicine, a cup warm (not too hot, or you destroy the healthy stuff in the honey - IIRC, it shouldn't be above 70 degrees Celcius) water with honey in it is very good for treating a cold.

Wow. Well, I'm really hoping art school will be more relaxed than Oxford and whatever institution Melanie goes to.

I'm just getting a bit annoyed by this term. Normally my workload is what I would describe as reasonable; I have to work, but I also get time off.

Not this term. To give you some idea of how little real free time I've had, I basically get to watch two television programmes a week, and don't really do much besides that, work and choir (though I'll admit that I'm quite good at wasting odd bits of time). I still haven't managed to watch the second disc of the Kenneth Branagh Hamlet film...

I can't see you as a choirboy surely they will have dropped by now.

I hate to break it to you, but older people do sing in (and conduct) choirs too .

Do you have to wear one of those white gown/dress with the frilly collar.

Not in any of the choirs that I sing in (or conduct) at the moment.

And for what it's worth, the frilly collar ("ruff") tends not to be worn by older people anyway, and the white gown/dress ("surplus"; normally worn on top of a "cassock") tends to be worn by specifically church choirs. At college we were gowns (yay for Oxford being weird and giving you a gown of some description before you graduate).

What is the purpose of singing, if the audience can't understand the lyrics?

What is the point of any art that isn't instantly intelligible?

And I think you do a slight disservice to choral music, there. Assuming that you're commenting on the prevalence of Latin texts, there are quite a few people in this world that speak Latin, and there are such things as translations too.

Of course, if you're suggesting that people simply can't make out words when they're sung by choirs, I'd suggest that you've been listening to some bad performances of choral music .

You're saying choral music is often sung in Latin? Well, that's convenient. "Here you go, sir, your ticket, seat number, and a translator. Enjoy the music, and don't forget to feed the translator!"

Also, I'm afraid my experience with choral music is exclusively confined to what I hear in games and movies.

Oh, well most of that just consists of people singing "Aaah"s and "Ohhh"s, so it's hardly surprising that you can't understand the lyrics .

In other news, having received an email back from my tutor, I'm now writing a completely different essay. So I'm hours behind in terms of starting, but at least I know what I'm writing about.
