Refuse to partake...in...free...candy...?!
I love Halloween - if only for the fact that it is free candy, and that you can act strange without anyone watching you. Well, sometimes . On top of that, chocolate is incredibly cheap after Halloween passes .
Well, I have been on MSN, but you're never on ( for the second time). School is pretty good in terms of how interesting my courses are - but until I get my exams back I won't know how I'm doing academically . Fortunately, I'm on a bit of a break now (three days off to do a presentation at a conference) after pulling three all-nighters last week...
How's university for you? I hope it's been going better than your first day...
Edit: wow, it must look like I've got some sort of personality disorder, what with all those smilies...
I figured a change would be appropriate, seeing as how Halloween is just around the corner :smiley_emoticons_mr
Yeah, I haven't had much time to spare recently - although I think that's going to change now (as I just wrote the majority of my midterms this week) so hopefully I'll be able to not pay attention in classes once again .

Ah, I wasn't actually being sarcastic when I wrote the whole thing about Ireland being the greatest Island. I feel quite stupid for not realizing that Ireland is made up of two separate countries.
I'm not worried about getting caught. I've escaped from the police once before and I was even drunk then. Of course that was the Irish police, after chasing me for less than a minute they just gave up.
I don't know if Ireland is the best country but it's definitely the best island.
If you want to prove your patriotism to Eire then meet me on top of Westminster on Oct 5th with a dozen bottles of whiskey, three kilograms of Semtex and one of those cool Zippo lighters with a wolf on it.
Yeah I'm old, but only the good die young which means I will live another century!
You, are not good (at anything....... except pretending to be bad). No one will dispute that, but you aren't bad enough to live as long as I. My hatred is perpetual and it fuels the fires of my seemingly immortal soul. I scoff at your feeble attempts manchild.
You put me in mind of a young prince, so eager to smite his father's enemies and yet unable to lift a sword. All bluster, no luster for muster.
Are you talking about my signature or what I said about Ireland.
For the former: There's nothing wrong with being negative, I just thought that your self-pitying ramble was quite funny and I needed a new signature.
For the latter: I'm just trying to show you that Ireland isn't any better than England (of course it is), it's just different. You shouldn't think of it as some sort of Mecca, Ireland is just as fucked up as the next country, the only difference with us is that we sort our problems like men, by drinking ourselves into a coma.
There's plenty of negatives about being Irish as well. Our politicians our simpering idiots, the Irish attitude is a very negative one and as my brother always says "we're all a bunch of chancers" so if getting by means leaving the country in a mess we'll still do it.
Unfortunately I don't have a sexy Irish voice, I spent my youth watching American and English t.v. and I now have a bastardized accent.
I like being a man of mystery and if I went on snapvine it might ruin part of that image.
That does sound rather unfortunate...if there's one thing about university I don't like, it's the bureaucracy/running in circles that one has to do for anything. It's infuriating sometimes, so I know exactly what you're talking about. At least you missed the 'intro' day... :P How are your classes, anyhow?
On the nature/nurture topic - that's a great comparison/way to think about it, actually...that you're born into specific circumstances but you will have different experiences which will 'change' you in variable amounts; furthermore, one has some control over what's absorbed, but not complete control.
And thanks for understanding about MSN...(sorry, though).
