I sort of ambled in, like a lost supply teacher...
I would love to come on th 16th, but i have photography... however the first weekend in febuary im coming down with some arty buddies, so I would love to come one day...
Ok, we all need this documentary!
Yet i have no mastercard or visa. So if anyone plans to buy it, please let me know so that i can ask you to buy two, of which i'll paypal or bank transfer you the cash
oh yeah, and the cost of postage
-shameless request over
welcome and hola
Meh. I have to sell a house in the US first, and then I'm moving to Sussex.
Sussex! Where smiling girls in hula skirts bear fruity drinks -- with umbrellas in! -- up and down the warm, white sandy beaches of the sunny channel. That's what my fiance said, anyhow. And he surely wouldn't lie.
I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).
- Jon - good thing you DONT have a visa credit card, they are the best thing for you to get yourself INTO debt!
Welcome new people!
Stoat- sussex eh? then WELCOME!
Visa debit cards are okay though - that way you can only spend what you've got Though since getting terribly confused as to how I still managed to go into my overdraft last term (even with some extra pocket money) I've started keeping track of my finances using Excel. It's actually quite fun, in a nerdy way
Jon, all these negative things about banking. There's a guy called Martin Lewis, he has a site I think it's www.moneysavingexpert.com or something, he knows what he's talking about, tells you how to avoid overdraft etc. He talks about it every week on Radio 2 where stupid people phone in asking something like 'I accept every advert online even if it says 'Fre3 P0rn for LIf3 OmG.exe' and my PC has found 1000000 spyware intrusions. All the messages ask me to enter my credit card details because they promise they work for Ebay and I get charged 1000 pounds every month, I don't know why.' Or something stupid like that.
I can't even remember what I was talking about.
I have accounts with three different banks, though the one I mainly use now is my Natwest Student Account, which (*thankfully*) doesn't charge me interest or nasty fines when I go into my overdraft. ^_^ Still, tis best to make a habit of avoiding them altogether, eh? Haha.
Should have a Northern meet sometime.
Just dropping this 'sea creature' link here, sure some of you have seen it
The Octopus at the end is crazy.

so when and where is the next Nandos outing?
......I miss not having to think about this sorta stuff.
As for banking I know Visa debit cards are fine, I just see it as an account card instead of a visa credit...(which I recommend no-one gets unles they are in a real nice paying, regular job)... But wait till you students leave school and your account status changes, the bastards can charge up to £39 a day if you go into your overdraft...bastards....
oh, btw - I watched I Am Legend, and its alright; an american take on 28 Days Later, except, the 'walking dead' are in 3D... shame that, real shame....
oh, yeah, shit, duh....
See yers at Nandos then
edit - great start to the year, 2 people I know have cancer. ones died already, and the others on his way....so sad....
