Am off to Jersey and an intensive kayak course for two weeks (the course is for the latter week)

I have two friends on the island who have assured me that we will visit the island's one club smiley - laugh

Who likes UCAS :(

I wish i wasn't so good at knowing how i did in my exams, with my epilepsy interfering in my exams it was never going to be great - A-levels came out today - BBB

Annoyingly 1 mark off in Maths (out of 600marks), but I can't get my grades marked up to my standard entry requirement (AAB)

Warwick hasn't withdrawn their offer yet, so i shall have to see what they decide to do this afternoon

We think too much the same Way

To all the volunteers who are linked to my journal who have just signed the code

Was slightly amused (and disturbed) that i wasn't the first person who was wondering whether we had to sign the code of conduct in blood, and how we would do so smiley - winkeye

I personally also think that it is the longest running thread to stay on subject ever in hootoo

Though i was quite happy that the thread i started over why polygamy was illegal stayed on theme for over 100 posts before breaking down, given that i started it with a devil's advocate argument and not especially high hopes

Nothing like hootoo in the morning...or the evening...or anytime - it doesn't matter we're always odd

smiley - biggrin

I missed my Birthday

Unlike my "real" birthday when i caught it five hours before it happened (i thought this was close enough, but it let me pick dinner)

I missed my actual birthday completely smiley - wah

I'll have some retrospective smiley - cake

Anyone who cares to join me in a retrospective party feel free to join

Prepare for a rant and detail, even if you've seen it

We got into the park at half five - security was quick, the soldiers and police were in a brilliant mood to everyone and the volunteers (who were literally the best part of Britain throughout the entire night) kept everyone in an good mood, both getting in and leaving at half one - it was a long ceremony for those there

A few instructions for us - every seat had a panel which did lights which we were responsible for moving but nothing complex - except the sea moving

I've not seen this from the outside so i don't know how it looked, but it was pretty good inside

Though the stadium did like the line while we were doing it "YOu'll be underneath for about thirty seconds so turn to someone you don't know and have some fun" :D

20.12 - Flyby with the red arrows - amazing, straight over our heads

And yes I should mention the inside - odd, but funny nevertheless

The industrial revolution bit might be my favourite of the evening - around 800 drummers, non of which anyone could see - certanly everyone i could see jumped, so I suspect 80,000 did - 20 minutes of thunder - it was brilliant

I'm sure you saw the rest of it, but the athletes and dancers during the athletes march were more then willing to talk to you (we were about 10 rows back from the front, and as well as being British we have a Bermudan link, so we were cheering the three athletes as they went by)

The torch/cauldron was very cleverlly done, though I thought it was more obvious than others realised that each country was carrying a torch, but i hadn't realised what they were going to do with them

Skipping past everything else I will just comment again how amazing the volunteers were - they'd been there even longer than us and they were (without an exception) cheerful, funny (making comments everywhere to cheer people up) and polite, as well as helpful

Thank you to Boyle and to them all for a great night
