I'm having a birthday picnic with my friend Richard. In my infinite wisdom, I've decided that I want it to be Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy themed as it's his favourite book(s). So, we're having the picnic at the end of the universe and using towels as picnic blankets. However, I'm struggling for food.

So far, we'll be drinking pan-galactic gargle blasters (chilled with ice from the fjords) (incidentally, what do these actually look like? In my head they're green with a slice of lemon...) and eating perfectly normal beast sandwiches. I was also thinking of mixing yellow food colouring with tuna and making babel fish sandwiches. I'll probably buy some white mice sweets too.

Do you guys have any more ideas for food? I was thinking about buying crisps and nibbles and labeling as the food from the floating party. If I wasn't making tuna sandwiches I'd make tuna pasta salad (whale) and decorate it with petunias, but it is an option if pushed. Could use salmon if pushed, but I can't stand salmon. Or 42 piece fruit salad?

The cake is also proving tricky. Initially, it was going to be the guide with Dont Panic on it. But party of me wants to make something awesome with all sorts of bits on it. But it's a two person picnic, and while I like cake, a massive themed one would go to waste.

Also, we're totally having vogon poetry afterwards.

Fuck my fucking life. My wisdom teeth are coming through, my gums are imflammed and I have a mouth full of fecking ulcers. So it hurts to eat at the one point of the damn year I can be a fucking glutton! We have all this nice food in the house and I cannot eat it. Christmas dinner is going to be unbearable.

Fuck my life.

So, I look like I havea steaming pile of poo on my head, wrapped in clingfilm. I think this is a good thing. I have no idea what it's going to look like! The strand test didn't really look any different, but the henna wasn't particularly hot and I only left it for half an hour. Fingers crossed I wont be orange!

I'm currently dyeing my hair with henna. Fingers crossed I won't be green or orange in half an hour's time. Currently doing the strand test... watch this space.

First exam in 2 hours 40 minutes! This is my exam week of hell - exams Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday (oh yes, nothing is sacred) and then my degree is totally over. How sad.

Before I do some last minute revision, some points about my life:
1) Last week I went to the Royal Society. We were given tours and my tutor blatently knew far more about the history of the place than their librarian. We got to look at some books out of their archives, inluding the original copy of Hooke's Micrographia. OMGZ, actually nearly peed myself. We had a look at the original flea drawing and it's so beautiful. All of us geeked out stared at it lovingly for a good ten minutes

2)I handed in my last ever coursework essay. Well, it wasn't marked but it was a 3000 word one with a presentation. I got a 76. Which is the perfect mark, as I got one in first year and thought that was the peak of my academi year. The department isn't even allowed to give out 80s, so getting a first that's even close to that is super amazing. If only I could recreate marks like that in the exams this week!

I saw Hairspray at the theatre in London last night. AMAZING.

Kitty took me for my birthday and we wandered around Covent Garden a bit beforehand. It was a bank holiday, so there was sooo many performeres. I felt very cultured listening to some dude sing Nessun Dorma. We found the most amazing cake shop ever - I had a lemon meringue white chocolate muffin. It was kinda like a giant lemon french fancy (i.e. the best and most neglected of Mr Kipling's cakes.) We also went out for dinner, and a cute and very cheap restaurant in Shaftesbury, although the food wasn't exactly great. I also did the touristy thing and took a photo of the Drury lane sign.
