Finding out this about a certain individual in the entertainment field.

After graduating first in his class with a master’s degree in chemical engineering from the University of Sydney, he was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to M.I.T.

Any guesses?

Whislt at Barnes and Noble I told my wife that you can take any book title you see at all and pretend it's actually about going to the toilet and it's genuinely funny. She disagreed. Even after I pointed out 50 Shades of Grey, You Don't Want To Know, Point Of Retreat and The Big Friendly Giant.

The city still makes my heart go pit-a-pat, every time I'm there. I usually stay with my sister in Winchester, and take the train in, and I'm still made happy just by pulling into Waterloo station.

HTML Code:
EARTH has not anything to show more fair: 
   Dull would he be of soul who could pass by 
   A sight so touching in its majesty: 
This City now doth like a garment wear 
The beauty of the morning; silent, bare, 
   Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie 
   Open unto the fields, and to the sky; 
All bright and glittering in the smokeless air. 
Never did sun more beautifully steep 
   In his first splendour valley, rock, or hill; 
Ne'er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep! 
   The river glideth at his own sweet will: 
Dear God! the very houses seem asleep; 
   And all that mighty heart is lying still!
Etc.

Good old Wordsworth, eh?

Google is my friend. May be slightly judgemental but he doesn't strike me as a having a degree of any sort, let alone a masters in chemical engineering so no, I wouldn't expect him to get the Fulbright.

Never judge a book by a cover, but we still do it.

I spent the morning having breakfast and a walk through the market with a very good friend. She's what's kept me together these last 5 years when it would have been easier just to give up.
