well. remember me mentioning the talk we had to do on monday? & how my slides got all messed up cos i was given laser printable slides instead of inkjet ones like i asked for? well, i told the lecturer of the class that i'd asked for inkjet ones & wasn't given the right ones, & she said she'd speak 2 the department secretary about it. she did this on monday. when i went up to the office today with one of my mates, we met her on her way out of the office. she asked if we were looking for her, we said yeah, we were wanting overheads for the 12390 talks. she said they wouldn't be available till monday, & i said to my mate "isn't your talk on monday?" he goes "yeah", & office person goes "well, what kind of slides is it you wanted?". my mate replied inkjet, & then office person went "yeah well i hear you were all complaining about the slides from last time". i said "yeah, thats cos they weren't inkjet ones, the ink wouldn't stick to the slide". she replied with "the ones the department get are inkjet & laser printable ones". i said this clearly wasn't the case, & she said "well i'm not giving you any then", so we walked away at that. i emailed the lecturer of the class (the class i had the talk for on monday & the class i have a talk for next week are both run by the same lecturer), & she's basically gone mad at me, says i have to apologise to office woman (though i'm not exactly sure what for as it was her that was rude to us, not the other way round).

yep. she started it, all we were doing was asking for something which we were told we were allowed to collect from her. she's always been a moody so-and-so, but she's really taken it too far this time. problem is, getting the slides from her means we get them free, printing them out in the library means buying a print card for 3, & as each acetate costs 5 credits, those 6 slides we need would use up the majority of the credits on the card! doesn't seem fair when we were told we'd be able to geet them from the department.

Helen, I don't blame you for being pissed off. Office staff are so unco-operative it's unreal.

I only found out this morning that Matt had won. I was surprised that that david gest guy wasn't even in the final three. I've got absolutely nothing against matt - yet - so good on him!

Was just down at my grans after the football this evening 'enjoying' the fabulous X-factor. To say she was not impressed with their singing was an understatement. "he's a bit out of key is he not?" She's practically deaf so i think that speaks volumes. The standard is pretty awful.

I know, I thought David Gest would win too. I was astounded that Matt made it to the final. I adore the guy, but I didn't think he'd win.

X Factor is god awful. They people that go on it don't stand a chance in the UK chart. It's just not the right kind of music that they're doing. They all cover crappy 90s ballads.

I believe the winners first single will be the song Kelly Clarkson brought out after winning the american version. It will, ofcourse, be our future Christmas number one.

I would like to see Ben win. I prefer the style of his voice to that of leonas. Ray is a smug little bam who i can't stand. Even thinknig about him makes me rage inside. No doubts that Leona will win it though.

The only good thing to come out of these 'talent' shows is Girls Aloud - they are simply fantastic. Steve Brookstein et al have faded fast.

I love Girls Aloud. They're fabulous. I want their greatest hits album. I hope Santa is listening.

McFly are releasing a song for Christmas! Sorry's Not Good Enough and Friday Night - they're always doing double A sides come to think of it. Sorry's Not Good Enough sounds very Christmasy, it's all bells and so on.

That's just narrow-minded. You're in the mindset that if it's pop, you can't like it.

And that bugs the living hell out of me. There have been loads of great pop bands, manufactured or not. I mean, Busted are a pretty good example. They changed pop music. They came along at a time when the charts were dominated by the likes of Westlife. Pop bands changed considerably after they released What I Go to School For.

The Spice Girls as well. Once upon a time, there was no such thing as a decent girl band, never mind a decent girl band who had attitude.

I spend far too much time defending pop music. And not enough time writing about Sociology. sad.gif

I do not have a narrow mindset, the fact that most of what is in the charts (which would be classed as pop) is hardly ever any good. And guess what i like some popular (ie pop) bands, such as Oasis, Greenday, and The Wildhearts, all of which have been in the Top 20.

So saying I am stuck in the mindset of "if it's pop, i can't like it" is jumping to conclusions.

I think quite a lot of the stuff in the charts just now is good. The problem with the charts though is that the good stuff that does get in there gets overplayed and then people are like omg not that song again i hate this chart music.
