And we’re cleaning toilets….

September 2nd, 2003 by MrLuxuryFashionGuru

I desperately want to write to everyone, and to send out messages to everyone on my icq contact list, firstly to tell them I’ve left already (which is ridiculous because I ought to have done so ages ago) and also to direct them to this blog.

So far it’s been amazing, everything you could hope for in a first couple of days on one of the most expectation-filled campuses in the world. There are too many people to befriend, to work with, to talk to, and there’re from all over the world, all over the country, and of all interests, talents and persuasions. The surroundings are gorgeous, and I will take/post some pictures eventually (it’s outrageous that I have yet to take a single photograph of the campus with the digicam I bought specifically for college).

The food’s really great too, though I’m doing my utmost to not consume too much of it (though right now I’m still totally stuffed from this great, but overly-sumptuous, Indian dinner we had about four hours ago). Wish me luck in combating the freshman 15!

And I am cleaning toilets. While Shiming and Xinwei are strolling around Cambridge with Vernie having leisurely lunches, I’m scrubbing grout and dealing with soapscum. At least it’s a great way to meet people, I’m assuming it’s pretty good exercise (since everyone’s exhausted at the end of the day), and we’re getting paid 🙂

    Hello clever points.. now why didn’t i think of these? Off subject slightly, is this web page design from an run of the mill installation or else do you use a customized template. I take advantage of a webpage i’m seeking to enhance one of the key issues to complete on my list.

    Mietin, millaista oli elää 20000 vuotta sitten? Työskentely aamusta iltaan ja tekee varmasti kerännyt tarpeeksi ruokaa hengissä talven. Times runsauden ja Vaikeina aikoina. Kuinka monet ihmiset tänään, voisi selviytyä silloin?

    .Roofs are made from different materials. Wood, straw, slate, stone, metal, plastic and anything else that can be used. Mostly depends on where you are in the world and how much you can buy, as to what type of roof you will have.

    Thank you for this post/article. I am intimately involved in the area of steam cleaning and bed bug removal and obviously our interests run parallel. Please email me if you’d like to discuss this. Thanks again.

    Ble rydyn ni nawr ar esblygiad y llwybr? A ydym yn dod yn wâr neu yn dal i fynd i lawr y llwybr o gynyddu pwerau dinistriol? Mae ein gwybodaeth feddygol yn cynyddu gyda nerth i nerth yn ystod pob rhyfel, ond nid mor fawr fel ein arfau dinistriol. Os yw ein gwybodaeth feddygol wedi cynyddu mor gyflym fel ein arfau, byddwn yn gallu byw am ddwy neu fwy ganrif.

    Biz təkamül yolu ilə, indi harada? Biz sivil olmaq və ya hələ də dağıdıcı səlahiyyətlərinin artırılması yolu enən edirsiniz? Bizim tibbi biliklərin hər bir müharibə leaps və həddi artır, lakin kimi çox kimi dağıdıcı hücum silahları. Bizim tibbi biliklərin bizim silah kimi sürətli kimi artmışdır, biz iki və ya daha çox əsrlər boyu canlı edə bilərsiniz.

    Why do people starve in a world that produces more food than it needs ? On a web page it said it was due to logistics of moving the food. I say, it is more to do with profits than a lack of the ability to move the food to where it is needed. Also some third world countries are exporting food they need so they can get money for other things. If we all were even half way to what we call humanity, no one would starve. But we are humans and fail to live upto our good ideals.

    Las gerade über Ausschreitungen in London und in anderen Bereichen auf die BBC-Website. Sie sollen mit Gummigeschossen, CS-Gas und Pfefferspray, bis die Randalierer arbeitsunfähig sind. Dann liefern sie nach Afghanistan, damit sie lernen können, wie sie sich verhalten.

  21. Kevin Says:

    .Oli lihtsalt lugedes rahutused Londonis ja teistes piirkondades BBC veebilehel. Nad peaksid kasutama kummikuule, CS gaasi ja pipragaas Kuni märatsejate on töövõimetud. Siis saata need Afganistanis, et nad saaksid õppida, kuidas käituda.

    Minun viimeinen viikko työtä hallituksen järjestelmää. Takaisin työttömyys jonoon ensi viikolla. Järjestelmä oli vain kolmetoista viikkoa ja joka päättyy neljässä päivässä. Ikävystyminen ja tuskin tarpeeksi rahaa elämiseen. 🙁 .

    .Nur noch zwei Tage nach diesem Tag der Arbeit auf die Regierung Schema. 🙁 Dann wieder auf die Arbeitslosigkeit Warteschlange nächste Woche Dreizehn Wochen einen Job, und nur immer 45 Prozent des Mindestlohns für ihn und die Regierung fragt sich, warum das System ist nicht populär Wenn ich Mindestlohn bezahlt werden müsste ich! genoss es mehr und hatte etwas Geld gespart.

    There is a dangerous virus being passed around electronically, orally, and by hand. This virus is called Worm-Overload-Recreational-Killer (WORK). If you receive WORK from any of your colleagues, your boss, or anyone else via any means DO NOT TOUCH IT. This virus will wipe out your private life completely.
    If you should come into contact with WORK, put your jacket on and take two good friends to the nearest grocery store. Purchase the antidote known as Work-Isolating-Neutralizer-Extract (WINE) or Bothersome-Employer-Elimination-Rebooter (BEER). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system.
    You should forward this warning to five friends. If you do not have five friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life.

    During a recent PASSWORD AUDIT by my bank, they found that I was using the following password:


    When they asked me why I had such a long password

    I replied
    ”Are you bloomin’ stupid? I was told that my password had to
    be at least 8 characters long and include one capital”

    Doctor Dave had slept with one of his patients and felt guilty all day long.

    No matter how much he tried to forget about it, he couldn’t.

    The guilt and sense of betrayal was overwhelming. But every once in a while he’d hear an internal, reassuring voice that said:

    “Dave, don’t worry about it. You aren’t the first doctor to sleep with one of their patients and you won’t be the last. And you’re single. Just let it go..”

    But invariably the other voice would bring him back to reality, whispering:

    “Dave you’re a vet.”

    In other words, through rich, digital means of “complexifying” learning such as blogging—at its best collaborative, reflective, and emergent authoring and creation—learners cannot and should not be zombies. And neither should we.
