Not Just a Funny Name

rankinqs:

I swear on everything that this isn’t just some stupid contest to gain followers. I’ve been wanting a new camera for ages so now I have two. I was thinking about returning/selling my old one, but I wouldn’t be getting the same amount or more than what it was originally priced. I’ve already talked to my mum about me giving it away, and she doesn’t mind. Anyway, who doesn’t like free stuff?
Here’s how this will work:
You do not have to follow me. I don’t want any followers that don’t actually like my blog. I do ask of you to kindly check out my blog though. If you like it cool, if not, then your loss.
Likes do not count for anything, only reblogs will count. You can reblog this as many times as you’d like.
Do not create any extra blogs or whatever, I will be looking on your archives.
Winner will be chosen like as if it were a raffle drawing.
Winner will be contacted via ask, so make sure that you have that on/open.
This will be over on March 21st 2014, and the winner will be announced on the 22nd.
I am doing this basically to make someone else happy and also because I accidentally deleted the other contest I was doing. Please don’t participate if you already own a Canon, but you can if you’d like I guess. I really don’t care if you live in Hogwarts, anyone is allowed to enter.
Here’s what the winner will get:
Canon EOS 1100D
Camera Cover R-F-3
Battery Charger LC-E10E
EUR AC Cable 1m
Battery pack LP-E10
Battery cover
Interface cable IFC-130U
All the disks needed.
The camera is basically brand new.
If you think this is “stupid” of me to do or anything of that sort, than just ignore it. It’s that simple.
Q. “Why would you just giveaway an expensive camera to a stranger?”
A. TO MAKE THEM HAPPY!
Q. “How do we know you aren’t bullshitting us?”
A. To make a fake contest just for followers is stupid, plus, I have a picture of me holding both the cameras :)
Good luck.

I’ve gotten to the stage with my geochemistry assignment where I’m just trying to make the graph look pretty

Screw the calculations being right, so long as I get something sensible looking out of it it’ll do. 

25 January 2014 Oh geochem how do I hate you let me count the ways


whenever i try and learn something new

  • me: It seems that I am not immediately excellent at this
  • me:
  • me:
  • me:
  • me:
  • me: it is because I am a failure
  • me: everything I touch dies

One of life’s greatest dilemmas

I really want some chocolate but I’m already in my pyjamas and procuring said chocolate would require leaving the house…

22 January 2014 It's a tough one


Why did I do that

I just decided to look up my best friend from school on facebook…..

Who, it turns out, is apparently massively successful and happy and has an amazing job/boyfriend/flat in London and runs marathons and has a cookery blog where she posts all the fantastic shit she’s been making and reviews all the fancy arse restaurants she’s been to. 

I on the other hand am closing fast on 25, am supported by debt and my parents, and am expecting a nasty letter any day about my TV licence because I’ve been forgetting to tell them I don’t own one for six months.

15 January 2014 I've been getting good use out of that gif recently it sums up my feelings quite well


Assignment says 2000 words, I’m 3/4 done at 1000 and I just can’t pad it any more. I know I tend to write in a very concise way but fuck it I must be missing something here.

Great story courtesy of my grandma and her friend

They knew a guy (I’m guessing some time in the 60s/70s) who was a well known CND campaigner and found out their phones were being tapped because of their association with him.

At the time my grandma’s friend was working for a charity and part of her job was to regularly call the elderly people she worked with, quite a few of whom really enjoyed talking about the state of their bowels at great length. So she always made sure to encourage them to be as graphic as possible when she was on the tapped line.

Jesus fucking christ people, sometimes the internet is great at solving your problems and giving advice but when your puppy is so lethargic she can’t even get off her bed to greet you, is refusing food, and is shitting blood I THINK IT’S TIME FOR THE VET. Posting vaguely concerned posts on a dog forum is not going to help. 

5 January 2014 In other news stupid people are always looking for new ways to be stupid


Oh FSM please let us get through this storm without flooding

Half the country’s under a flood warning and we live in a valley and flooded this time last year.

I’ve just had to close the outside shutters on the back window because the wind is strong enough to force the rain through the gaps. 

Still dry at the moment thank god but the presents have been moved from under the tree and we’re trying to decide if we should move the furniture too.

The water table in the well is at ground level and the ditches are overflowing onto the road, I have a feeling we’re in for a soggy christmas. 

It had to happen sometime.

Stereotype complete

I may or may not be sitting on the sofa with my mum and sister eating a box of chocolates while a little bit tipsy watching Bridget Jones. 

Still a good movie even if it’s starting to look a bit dated, I don’t even want to know how long ago it actually came out.
