Anyways a (nosy) question for Emily, (I don't quite know how to phrase this but anyways) Are you in your A-Level year/the year you do your A-Levels/however the hell you say it, curious me was wondering :P Plus I am extremely jealous of your education system, ye only have to do 3/4 subjects for your A-Levels, we have to do 7 for our Leaving Cert! Your English course is easier than ours and your GCSEs are simple a-hard-days-night-george-10 Care to adopt me for 2 years? I can make waffles a-hard-days-night-john-3Also I don't understand your grading system a-hard-days-night-john-7

Actually, no. I do something called Baccalaureate. I'm currently working towards my end of year exams (this year is important because I can leave if I want to), and then if I stay on I'll do another two years. I'm doing 10 subjects this year. You can do up to 12, but I didn't take the other two. I don't know how it compares to Ireland, but it's not an easy system. Most people in my class won't graduate this year because you have to get 50% min. in all subjects. Bearing in mind that only 1/3 approx. of students stay on in the first place, and usually another 1/3 or so of them drop out before Christmas, you can see that it's not that easy.  If you want to come over though, and we can give each other moral support, I'd be more than happy to have an adoptive sister. Mine has moved out now and I miss her like mad so you can ''pretend'' to be her if you like. Her room's hot pink and purple, will that be okay? :D Oh yeah and I love waffles. Please come!

You get a round of applause from me (I can not find a gif of the Monty Python old ladies clip....grrr this shall have to suffice )

I have (hopefully) 2 years of school left (this year included) if I don't get the points that I need for university (I need 450 out of 600 points for my course) I'll be repeating (but that's not going to happen I am not staying another year in bloody school, bring on college I'm going to join a circus troupe a-hard-days-night-john-6 To be even more of a nosy badger, what subjects are you doing? Me, myself and I are doing English, Irish, Maths, French, German, History, Geography and Business all higher level except maths because I hate maths a-hard-days-night-paul-11  The Baccalaureate reminds me of the Leaving Cert Vocational Programme (LCVP), you get between 50-80 extra points if you pass it but it's too much work for the majority of us feather heads a-hard-days-night-george-9

I don't mind, but why all the questions....? :D Happy to satisfy your curiosity anyway, I do: English, Advanced Maths (no choice here), Physics and Chemistry, Spanish, French, History, Biology, Ethics and Human Rights, Physical Education Studies and Essay Construction (I think that's what the class is called - we just get taught how to prepare work properly).

Do any of you know a brand called Pecksniffs? Is it a high end brand, low end, or somewhere in the middle?

Oh if I was doing Phys-Chem and biology, I'd die, I detest science in all ways, shapes and forms (there are 3, you know? a-hard-days-night-george-10 ) I am also extremely jealous that drama and dance are subject options, would love to do them. I've been acting since I was 4 and dancing since I was 3 a-hard-days-night-paul-7 'Why all the questions?' because I'm a nosy bugger and I think about what people do behind their computer screens a-hard-days-night-george-10  A weird characteristic of mine I guess, I also like trying to guess peoples who's names we don't know, real names. I presume that Zig has a reasonably normal name like Dave, nothing eccentric and meanmistermustard is quite the same but a Chris, Bill, Peter type :P And LongHairedLady is a Rachel, Kelly type. See I'm actually a very strange person in real life a-hard-days-night-george-9 If I actually got any of those ^ right, go me! ahdn_george_08

Haha no problem. I wonder what everyone's like all the time. I bet if I ever met anyone off here I'd be like ''you don't look like that, do you. That's not how you looked in my head'' :D

I love Biology, Chem is okay, hate Physics because it's similar to maths and anything like maths is not good IMO. I don't get to do Dance or anything like that because that's on a different pathway to the one I'm on. I have some friends that do it instead of PE, though.

My brother did physics for his Leaving Cert, got an E in it, so he failed. In the mocks out of the 11 elevens who were doing physics only 1 passed and he got 41% (the pass mark is 40%). Just some life facts about doing physics to brighten your day Emily

Speaking of wondering what everybody looks like. What do people think I look like? You know I'm 15 and I'm Irish and the more diligent and good-memory holders of you will know what kind of hair and what colour of hair I have. Am I tall or short? Fat, chunky, plump, skinny or thin? Do I have  a circle, square, oval face? Do I wear glasses? What colour eyes do I have? These are questions that keep me awake at night a-hard-days-night-george-10

It comes as an audio book, available at all good retailers.

Is it the standard, special, deluxe, luxurious or collectors edition i need to get the full translation?

 

From a google search pecksniff is a brand of fragrances for men or women. Seems a strange choice for the name of a product, especially a fragrance.

If it is the perfume brand, high end. They have one shop that I know of, in Brighton (though they may well have more now). I had a female friend who would get her perfume there. Though they had their own range, they also specialised in bespoke, tailored to the customer - which is why my friend went there.

You do have pinball machines in the UK, right? If not, that floors me, but I will explain.

They have taken a leaf out of Apple's book, super-duper-luxurious-never-going-to-be-released-again-limited-edition-of-10-million audio book at the reasonable price of £152 (excluding VAT)

Sounds like a bargain. Nice to see they are learning from the masters.

I imagine you have long dark brown, wavy hair, Katie. Eyes, hmm... let me see. Green or maybe brown. Tall-ish, no glasses. Quite smiley? Am I close? This is fun :)

BTW, what do you think my name is? Bet you're way off :)

^ That's quite scary, I have shoulder-length dark brown curly hair, green eyes, 5'4, very smiley (with one dimple) and no glasses well done!

Shaniqua? Rasputia?

Also I forgot to mention on Sunday, Happy Diwali everyone!

Can't believe I actually got that right. That's a bit scary.
