I'd tell you how awesome the course is, except that I haven't been to any of the lectures or classes yet.

I was having some Barossa cabernet sauvignon earlier. I've also got some merlot here, and some white, though I forget precisely what.
Oh yeah, that's SuperWin material all right. Incidentally, you do realise that we're gonna spurt that word out during a tute and get weird looks all around, right? That and epic phail, or phail collins.

Barossa cabernet sauvignon sounds good to me, although it seems a bit hot for a red; I'd go a dryish white myself.

The subject title is inspired by the rather dramatic shift in terrorism (and by extension the frameworks for understanding it) from the 1980s to today, e.g. its increased lethality, changing uses and purposes of terrorism as a political tool, and its rise in the international order to the point that it defines the post-Cold War system.

I know. I've already used SuperWin offline, when I was flogging Mum and Alan at Monopoly a couple of nights ago.

Unfortunately, you won't get to meet our tutor for three weeks. The lecturer, Mohammed, is taking the tute next week, and then we've got the Easter break.

I just felt like a red, not to mention the fact that I haven't opened the white yet while both bottles of red are open. Now I wish I had some crackers here. I've got cheese and olives, but no crackers! WTF.

I've already done some work on this stuff in the History faculty last year, while this is offered by the PolSci faculty so it'll be interesting to get the political theoretical approach.

Oh, and Maj., our course reader is thick. Disturbingly thick. The thickest reader I've ever had, and readers never come thin in History or PolSci. The fucker's over $50 and could kill somebody if you dropped it on their head!

As far as I know, the only way to get the uni readers is through the uni bookshop. I've been told that they only charge production costs on readers and don't make a profit on them, but I have to wonder how the fuck it can cost that much to produce. It is some 700 A4 pages long, though ...

Oh, and I've been using "made of win", "owned", and such offline for a while. "SuperWin" is the first example of postwhorehouse slang that I've used offline, though.

Damn, I hate paying money for readers.

I went to go and get crackers and a dip / cheese, and I've ended up with an iced chocolate and microwave pasta!

Dinner was an Asian dish: curry laksa, which consists of two kinds of noodles, fishballs, chicken, vegetables and sambal (chilli paste) boiled in a spicy soup made of several different kinds of spices and coconut milk.

But at least we don't have a textbook to worry about. I've only had to buy one textbook in my entire time at the University, heh.

Make me an iced chocolate too, please!

Actually, I think I'll go pour another glass of wine. I'm feeling nihilistic and sad this evening.

Take out the fishballs and coconut milk so that I can actually eat it, and that sounds really awesome.
