Reality TV hits a new low

Tribes are divided by race. There's to be a White tribe, African-American tribe, Asian-American tribe and a Hispanic tribe.

Good job at promoting racism CBS.

That dreaded day...

...Has come around again. Yes it's exam results day* for us students. Living out the student summer as best I can meant I woke late and decided before I started to panic to check UCAS and hurrah found out I had indeed got into uni. Listening to the news I heard what I was expecting to hear, apparently exams are getting easier. As one of my teachers once said 'We can't win. If more people pass, then exams are getting easier, if the results were to go down then there's obviously something wrong with the teaching.' Anyway then the post came with a little welcoming pack from the University so by the time I had left to go to my now ex-college to pick up my results I knew I did ok. Except that didn't stop those dreaded nerves turning up as I walked into college. Which feels kinda silly now as the whole process lasts about 5 minutes. Anyway I won't type my grades because although they were better than I had expected**, I still feel I could of done better. Part of me wishes I had done badly because I am the worst procrastinator so it would teach me to get on and actually do some work but then I got ok grades, so if I just pushed myself and did some work then I should be achieving top grades.
anyhow I start university on the 18th September! I can't wait, I'm so bored of summer already and I've still got another month to go. I might go do something shocking and ask for some overtime from work.

Much Ado about Tamsin Greig

Just had a rather amazing weekend.

Met a rather awesome person on friday night, it took us about three minutes of dawdling before we actually went and spoke to her, mainly because i had sudden "OMG, what if its not actually her!!!!!!! what if we are about to go and make fools of ourselves" But it was Kate, and rather blinking fabbie she is too!!

After the small meetage (small but packed full) we went back to the hotel room, got into our jim jams and triied to resist the urge of running around screaming "we could be meeting TG tomoro"... but as we were still trying to stay in pessimist mode we decided to dull down our brainage and watch Big Bro instead (Nikki must go back in btw!Lol!), and scare the room service guy by being in our pyjamas at that time of the night!Lol! i managed to go to sleep, only to be woken at about 1am by Stacie going.. what the hell is that, taking out my ear plugs to realise that the stupid fire alarm was going off, Stacie put on her shoes grabbed her phone and hoodie and was opening the door byt the time i had dangled one foot out of the bed and attempted to put on a shoe (it was those stupid door alarm things, that beep if its not closed!bloody fucksie!).

Anyway, we woke up at seven and so began Tamsin Day!!WOOOOP!

My god did that day drag, we tried to fill it with openign Dr Who stickers and scratchcards, but the hours just took years.

Eventually we were dressed, fed and on our way. Got to the theatre and i was sqauwking and squeaking like a fool needing to get all the excitement out. We were quite possibly the youngest people there! Anyway, dodging all the bad looks, we took our frankly quite amazing seats and the play started. Tamsin Greig, on stage, looking quite the sexy skinny minnie!

It was amazing, she was a complete world away from Caroline, apart from one part involving a scooter, and another involving a mega phone. I said i would only be loking at her, but my god, everyone was so amazing i was sat enthralled, and then it was 4.15, and the end.

We grabbed everything and legged it outside as fast as we could, scaring all the oldie who were loitering!Lol!!

And we were at the stage door, Stacie was saying we shouldn't get any body elses autos cos we'd miss Tamsin, but i couldn't resist the urge to talk to the gorgeous Joseph Milson who was wonderful as Benedick. And Stacie was right, cos TG appeared. And i grabbed her, and she signed and i spoke to her, and she was asking us questions, and calling another girl who was waiting with us a stalker (lol) and saying thatnk you for my pressie, i really need a hair clip!Lol! and that she would look terrible in her photo (AS IF!!!!!!!!she is truly "Teh Sex", but she had it done anyway*, and she went. and i didnt cry, i almost did, my voice cracked, but i held it together. And she got in really close for her photo, i felt her hair on my cheek. love her, love everything about her.

I have met my idol, i am so happy, and thanks for letting me share with you.
