The University of Bristol Examinations Board has officially approved my Doctorate! πŸΎπŸŽ‰

HRT, Shitpost 

Maybe she's born with it.

Maybe it's Estradiol Valerate.

Very rough idea but:

Flobots
Bellowhead
Sonic Boom Six
Bowling for Soup
My Chemical Romance

HONEST ANSWERS ONLY: What were your five most-listened-to bands or artists in high school? (And don't try to be cool and say some hardcore band from Manitoba that three people have heard of).

Number of anxieties this week down to one...

I think my calendar is trying to tell me that something important is happening tomorrow.

UK gender clinics are in disarray. Leeds and possibly Glasgow are closing during the crisis, many appointments are being cancelled, and there is little clear communication with patients and GPs.

This shows again that the current gatekeeping system is not fit for for purpose. twitter.com/NotRightRuth/statu

If you are interested in stories with happy endings, you would be better off reading some other book. In
this book, not only is there no happy ending, there is no happy beginning and very few happy things in the
middle. And then the dragons arrived.

Let's try this. Give me the opening line of a book, but add "and then the dragons arrived."

A roundabout

Without naming it, what's your hometown known for?

Also, as someone who played the drums for several years, it irritates me when a band is performing in a film and what they're playing doesn't match the sound.

Bill & Ted are told they need to be back in time for their presentation as time will continue to progress without them.

In Bill & Ted 2 they use the time machine for several months and then come back to the Battle of the Bands on the same night that they left.

Friday film question: what's a tiny little detail from a movie, or trend in movies, that bugs the hell out of you? Not anything major, just specific.

If the audience asks all the hard questions in the Q+A session after the talk can the examiners not reuse those questions in the actual viva?

Show thread

I'm giving a conference talk next week.

It's the day before my viva.

One of my examiners is the speaker before me.

And the other is the session chair.

Do I need to bother with the viva afterwards?

I've settled on my virtual background for all future Zoom meetings.
