And so it arrives (or at least, is almost here!). All about the dreaded V word... )

Looking back over lj and my post last year I think the sentiments still ring true - I hope that you all get the happiness you deserve, whether that's being blissfully single or otherwise.

NB - if there are, as usual, a plethora of crush questionnaires about to hit lj, my advice would be only admit the ones you'd admit to others. They usually sell the information on later. Being a sensible girl who only has room for one wonderful person, this doesn't affect me but just keep it in mind!

Well, some interesting fare amongst my eljay buddies today. Mostly the following snippets.

A cool BBC news link, nabbed from [livejournal.com profile] mutualdesire:

East Anglian Ambulance Service has started the national "In case of Emergency (ICE)" campaign.

"All people have to do is store the word "ICE" in their mobile phone address books and put the next of kin's number against it," said a spokesman.

"This is the person to be contacted quickly 'In Case of Emergency' by ambulance and hospital staff."

Falklands hero Simon Weston is helping the ambulance service to publicise the idea across the UK.

He said: "It's so simple that everyone should do it as soon as they hear our message."

London. My thoughts and deep sympathy go out to anyone who lost someone, and to anyone unfortunate enough to have been a victim of indiscriminate, cowardly actions - whether mildly injured or fatally wounded.

I hope those travelling home tonight manage the journey.

I’ve been contacted already by a concerned loved one (who was unsure of the location of my induction this morning). Please be assured I haven’t been anywhere near London and have no need to go that way today. I’m travelling to Birmingham tomorrow but more on that on a separate post.

I've spoken to my parents today - they've been out assessing the damage. They're ok as they live at the top of a steep hill, go camping all the time so have a gas stove to use for cooking and heat etc. Apparently the electricity isn't going to be on for some time yet, as the main substation was flooded and they're only just able to get in to clean it. It has then to be dried out and tested before it can be repaired so all in all...

The local radio stations are being bombarded by people offering their spare rooms for members of the 8000 homes which have been evacuated.

There's a makeshift Police Station outside M&S and the Fire Station has been relocated (both were flooded). The hospital was spared any major problems but the situation with the roads means that ambulances and everything else couldn't get through yesterday - today is marginally better as the water has started to recede.
I guess this applies only to Brum Uni Students! But I thought I'd help out...

As probably few of you know, this week Birmingham University will be having a referendum to whether we affiliate to the NUS. But sadly due to the wishes of Guild Council being ignored, it has been pushed back to a time when Redbrick can't cover it and everyone is too busy

So it is VERY important as many people as possible know about it. EVERYONE - put it in your livejournal, send e-mails with both sites below linked to to as many society / other mailing lists as you can, as well as all your friends. Lets let the students decide!

Vote No - here
Vote Yes - here

I'm far from impressed with President Blair at the moment for many reasons!
