Text 23 May 3 notes I bought a new bike. A friend and I brainstormed names for it.

A few themes were touched on. I was particularly keen on the kind of romantic, wistful name you might see painted on an old wooden boat, but we also tried to go a bit more modern – as evidenced by the exclamation marks.  Upon reflection, a sexual thread ran through some of the suggestions.

Text 20 May 6 notes reader definition: Tip

english2english:

In the UK a tip is where you take your rubbish, or a very messy room. I guess the US equivalent would be “dump”? I’m a very untidy person who’s experienced a few bemused looks from Americans when I describe my bedroom as a tip.

Seconded

Photo 16 Oct 343 notes Beautiful. This came during a discussion about the events in Libya last month, when the US ambassador Chris Stephens was killed in Benghazi. The gesture is quite in keeping with Romney’s aggressive posturing at times tonight.
The Guardian’s Ewen Macaskill, in Hofstra:

Republicans will love the sight of Romney squaring off against Obama. And Democrats will just as much love Obama squaring off against Romney. But independents might view Romney’s behaviour as rude.

Photo 3 Oct 170 notes Ah, gestures.
They’re on to discussing education in Denver, by the way. Mitt Romney says he “loves good schools”, after Obama accuses him of not wanting to hire more teachers.
Romney says education should be handled at state level, not by the federal government.
The verdict from most political reporters on social networking websites is that Romney is doing well here, with Obama struggling. (Read into that what you will). Romney has seemed more passionate than Obama though, which is saying something given the former Massachusetts governor is usually renowned for his woodeness.
While Romney speaks, Obama tends to look down at his podium, jotting notes, which doesn’t come over too well on television.
