So I passed the test. The driving test that is. Not the send-up test for my N.E.W.T.s. Cause that hasn't happened yet...they have a penchant to be delayed ever so often =]
Annnnd....as I predicted...M failed...horribly. :) Not that it was hard...she just can't drive. :p
She was all boo-hoo on the way back and one of the officers saw her and told the DSP and he called dad and said to meet him next time. Maybe he'll fail her again...but I mustn't get my hopes up...
Now that i've passed, maybe mum n dad will buy me a car...!
This one maybe?
Anyway...we're freed from college early on Mondays, so today i headed off to the reading room. And it turned out that the 2nd year students had a major biochem test coming up so it was absolutely packed! We weren'y givin up so easily though. F and I spotted a mangled chair with its cushions intact, so we dragged it into a corner unceremoniously and sat down to study.
That is till the power went out.
Now bear in mind that this is King Edward we're talking about. A transformer had gone beserk. And though Mayo has more than two direct supplies from the grid... it still took them over an hour to fix it.
The weather was better today though. More clouds, less humidity. Should happen more often :(
F ditched me then. He went off to the hostel where they were premiering their very own version of "Pirates". Don't ask.
2 hours into the fray and the person next to me was begining to smell strongly of Pullao..(M calls it "bridge come"..Pull...Aao..get it? :) and that was when the salivary glands i was trying to study went into overdrive. I sniffed hungrily once or twice and he looked at me kinda strange! And then he produced a lunch box from his desk (filled with Pullao of course) and proceeded to eat it right under my nose.
Needless to say, I had to leave. Or he would've been Pullao-less in a jiffy.
A final survey of the reading room as I left: 25 out of the 40 people there were sleeping. Out of the 15 who were awake, 3 were reading novels; Lord of the rings, The Digital Fortress and Eclipse???!!! (i might be mistaken). The one reading about Gandalf turned it into a pillow seconds later...to join the overwhelming majority. 3 more were surfing face book on their lap tops. while the rest were all fixed in the same position; a book in their lap, both feet on the table, chair reclined, an array of high-lighters in one hand while the other attempted to smooth out the creases forming on their foreheads as they struggled to figure out the mysteries of life.
