I can draw horses! Generally though, they end up looking like this:

Which is how I prefer them.

I don't like horses.

Finished 'If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things' this morning for uni. Can't believe the writer was only about 26 at the time. Very impressed. :yes:

I still seem to be on a quest to read all the Discworld books in no particular order.

This time I've got Reaper Man.

Finished the new Wheel of Time the day it came out, whilst midway through the series for the 6th or 7th time or something daft like that.

Currently reading the 7th again, A Crown of Swords.

The Second Book of General Ignorance.

I learnt today that if i was downstream of a shark a quarter of a mile away and the current was 15mph against the shark, were I bleeding I would have only three minutes to escape. A minute for the smell to reach the shark, two minutes for said shark to swim up to me.

Useless, but interesting :P

Just read Micheal Caine's autobiography - fun if lightweight read, and written a style that you can't help read in his accent.

Now reading A Most Wanted Man by John Le Carre. As he's famous for cold war stuff, and he's getting on a bit, I was surprised how current and relevant his new stuff is.

About a million papers on Borellia burgdorferi.

Fuckyear for leaving research essays to the last minute.

Note for anyone going into uni/in the lower years of uni doing a science degree: Don't do this.

I just finished reading a bok called Jeremy and Amy. It's about a man who looks after Amy the Orangutan.

It was really good, it had me laughing, awwing and crying.
