PROGRESS UPDATE: Friday 28th December 2012.
EMOTION: Nervous but happy.
WHY: Happy with how much revision I’ve done, but nervous that I’ll look back on this week and consider it insufficient.
CURRENT REVISION COMPLETED: Jekyll & Hyde Activity sheets; Bitesize Chemistry revision; Biology Progress sheet; German Writing transcript; 3 Of Mice & Men mind-maps; and reviewing Of Mice & Men notes.
MOMENTS OF JOY: Watching Outnumbered and seeing the parents squirm in the face of the norovirus; grinning from earlobe to earlobe at Jenna Louise-Coleman’s (the Doctor’s new companion in the Christmas special) wittiness and humour; finally recognsing the tune and lyrics to “Call Me Maybe”; seeing Miranda back in form; laughing at Artemis Fowl; and so much karaoke!
GREATEST MOMENT SO FAR: Boxing Day. Playing charades. My role: Dancer. My clues: Gangnam Style & Macarena! Oppa Gangnam Style! Heeey Macarena!
BIGGEST MOMENT(S) OF ANNOYANCE SO FAR: Karen seldom appearing in the Outnumbered Xmas Special.
BIGGEST SHOCK SO FAR: Seeing (and hearing) Ben from Outnumbered all grown-up!
FINISHING SENTENCE: Craziest cracker of a Christmas.
I would like to thank you all for your support of my blog. You have coped with my Big Bang Theory obsession, my tendency to create blog posts as long as essays, and my blog posts that I should have known were just too depressing to put on this cheery little blog (after all, the name of this blog was the brainchild of Ben from Outnumbered on a double espresso caffeine rush). So if you are bored with my casual, Big Bang Theory-obsessed posts that are created just for the halibut — sorry, hell of it — I have resolved the problem…by creating a new blog!
Wink of a Word (http://winkofaword.wordpress.com/) has no posts at the moment, but in the future I hope to fill it with stories, reviews, educational posts (perhaps history-based) and a wide range of posts that I hope to be long but interesting and important. Well, not really important but just with less explicit and constant attempts at humour. I’m looking forward to posting on my new blog, even though it will mean that I will have to be more self-restrained in my blogging, and I will have to change my blogging style a little.
Zingy Zangy Zongy shall exist, don’t worry! But if I don’t blog on here for a while, it will either be because of school-based or GCSE-based trouble, I don’t feel like it, or I am on my new blog. I will continue to blog on here often, but I would appreciate it if you could support me with my new blog as well!
Live long and prosper!
Oh, snap! I have just reached my one-hundreth post! And it has taken me about nine months to get here!
But what was my first post? Was it about Big Bang Theory? Was it about being a geek? Was it a quiz? No. It was about…exams. It was published in December, but there was not a hint of Christmas spirit in it. But at the time, I really was suffering from the constant stream of GCSE tsunamis. GCSEs are like purgatory; you’re put through hell for months on end, but the end result is nearly always heaven. If you’re interested, click on “School” (under Categories) and scroll down to the bottom to see my first post. If you’re not, then good; I agree that it’s not the best of posts to start a blog with.
I did not start this blog to release my exam stress, though. I’d actually originally made this blog to post sections of my new story. But in the end, I figured that the stories weren’t good enough, and just mucked around on it, posting about Night, Gaming, Legend of Zelda, Outnumbered, Futurama and Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy. Zoewright96 provided the motivation, for she had created her own blog, lifesabowlofinnuendos, earlier that month, and she suggested I created this blog. And I can’t thank her enough.
My personal favourites out of my early blog posts are the ones about my friends, JJ and Zoe, and when I went indoor sky diving, which I enclose links to:
So much has happened since I began this blog: I became part of a group of bloggers on always equal who fought passionately against inequality. I found other fantastic blogs, written by incredibly talented people. But most important of all, people are actually FOLLOWING MY BLOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, I am in a state of shock that this has actually happened!
But why create a blog? What’s the point? Many people have asked me this. The answer’s oh so easy. It’s because blogging is an amazing experience. It’s because it allows you to share your thoughts and ideas on the interweb. And it’s because blogging involves writing: the most valuable skill known to man, and something that I just always find so relaxing and enjoyable. Writing has saved me on so many occasions, and just holding a pen or sitting at a keyboard immediately puts my mind at rest.
I’d like to say thank you to everyone who clicked “Like” for at least one of my posts, or even just had a little look! I’d like to say “merci” to everyone who gave invaluable and delightful comments for my posts. And I’d like to say a big “danke schon” to everybody who follows this blog!
Live long and prosper, everyone! 😀
Well, here it is! My fiftieth post! And since you can never tire of the Big Bang Theory, well, this post is Big Bang Theory related!
What am I going to do? Do a quote from the fiftieth episode (where Sheldon teaches Penny rudimentary physics. An example quote from that episode is in fact in the previous post)? Do a countdown of the top 50 Big Bang Theory quotes? Give 50 reasons as to why Big Bang Theory is flawlessly epic? No. Sorry. It’s just going to be a quote. About the number 73! (FYI, I checked this quote on Wikipedia and a blog of BBT quotes.)
Sheldon: What is the best number? And by the way, there is only one correct answer.
Raj: Five million, three-hundred eighteen thousand, and eight?
Sheldon:Wrong. The best number is 73. You’re probably wondering why?
Raj: We’re good.
Sheldon: 73 is the 21st prime number. Its mirror, 37, is the 12th, and its mirror, 21, is the product of multiplying, hang on to your hats, seven and three. Eh? Eh? Did I lie?
Leonard: We get it. 73 is the Chuck Norris of numbers.
Sheldon: Chuck Norris wishes. In binary, 73 is a palindrome: 1001001, which backwards is 1001001, exactly the same. All Chuck Norris backwards gets you is Sirron Kcuhc!
Raj: Just for the record, when you enter five million, three-hundred eighteen thousand, and eight in calculator, upside down it spells [YOU KNOW WHAT].
Leonard: Remember when you were wondering why the girls didn’t want to eat with us tonight?
Howard: Yeah, I get it now.
Oh and FYI, in the same episode, Amy develops a crush on Penny’s ex-boyfriend, Zack; Raj and Howard compete over who should be ‘Rat Man’; we see Howard wearing a wrestling suit; and we learn the origin of the cartoon heart…
I don’t know if I told you this before, but the name of this website is thanks to the brilliant mind that is Ben from Outnumbered (although the best character is unarguably Karen). He used the word “zingy zangy zongy” to describe how he felt after he drank half a double espresso. I myself quite like coffee, and I LOVE feeling hyper! Also, I thought that ‘zingy zangy zongy’ was an absolutely amazing word, along with ‘blogging’, ‘doodling’, ‘limo’ and ‘little Lalita’. It was also thanks to zoewright96 (lifesabowlofinnuendos.wordpress.com) that I started this blog, and I just want to give the most specialest of thanks to her for convincing me to start this blog. It’s just that so many writers across the centuries have turned the most geniusly thankful phrases into cliché, so all I can say is this: Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyousomuchthankyouthankyouthankyousovery-veryverymuchthankyouthanks.
As Leonard Nimoy/Spock says, live long and prosper all you wonderful people! 😀
