1) Well done Kenny! Hope they don't try and dick you over. You should be alright. I'm doing employment law at the moment so I could try and do a bit of research for you if you want? Bear in mind I'm a 'tard, 'howevs'.

2) http://www.sporcle.com/games/pokemon.php Is it wrong that, after about 45 minutes of continously trying, I can now name all 151? Beats doing coursework, innit.

3) Got a letter from Virgin this week warning us about illegal music downloading. They attached a list of all the shit we were getting done for and, y'know what, we were getting warned over one song and one song only. And it was by Kanye West. Fuck's sake. When I told my housemate to stop being a cock, his response was:

"It can't have been me as I downloaded the whole album, not just that song. I didn't download the song on its own so it wasn't me". What the fuck? I was speechless at the use of such logic.

Thanks Kanye West.
Cheers guys. With regards to my notice, all sorted. Am working 2 weeks and the other 2 weeks I'm not working but being paid holiday. All good.

With regards to this downloading - what exactly are they doing about it?

Well done Kenny. I too have been offered a job, about half an hour ago, and whilst it's probably going to be a shitty job, it means the 3 months of beerlessness since Zavvi fucked me are soon gonna come to an end. Huzzah.

Teamescape, I recieved a similar letter in January, also citing Kanye as the culprit. Since noone in my house has any Kanye West, I can only assume it's a scare tactic Virgin are employing, assuming students probably love;

a) torrenting music and,
b) the musical stylings of Mr West.

Either way, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Haha, I don't mind discussing the shitness... it's fundraising for Sustrans. Although it does sound slightly different to other fundraising jobs, plus I'm a pretty big supporter of Sustrans anyway, so hopefully that'll help to ease the pain of begging people for money. I'm just glad to have some cash coming in, my account currently holds less money than I need to pay Marchs rent. But, with weekly pay, relief is in sight!

I love some of the things 'Will McGree' has to say on the matter. Not overly fussed, just a bit irritated. If our connection wasn't so shit/prone to collapse then I wouldn't mind so much.

I never thought I'd be jealous of people getting new "shitty" jobs. I'm so bored right now, and have been applying for jobs for aaaaages and still got nothing. The thing that really annoys me is that I'm putting all this effort into finding a job that I'll probably be quitting in about September cos I'll hopefully be on a masters course by then.
meh.

It is pretty damn busy. Not as busy as the 10th of April last year though!

I am so hungover it's unreal - I went to a fancy dress party last night (as elliot reid, scrubs are the comfiest things I've ever worn!) which ended up in a club in town - needless to say we all looked ridiculous. But for now, I suffer.
