Property Bubble

Played Monopoly a couple of weeks ago, with the weirdest set of rules, but it was fun. Anyway, there was a small insert in TIME Magazine about Monopoly that is hilarious:

Property Bubble
When the board game Monopoly hit London in 1936, the priciest property sold for a then staggering £400. That doesn't go far in London today, so a limited-edition 70th anniversary special Monopoly Here & Now brings the game up to date. New hot properties such as Notting Hill and Canary Wharf are selling for mini-money millions, a barrage of London icons--including the London Eye, Tate Modern and the new Wembley Stadium--have appeared and, instead of scooping $18 in a beauty contest, players who draw the right Chance card receive $183,000 for winning a reality TV show. The Free Parking square, however, is history. In London? Never!

And that's all I have to say. Holidays are nearly over...

Ooh, and just recieved an email from Emma! Her and Norelle are going to England to work for a year or so, so here's a link to her blog about their adventures in England. How exciting. (And I took down your so-called "sex blog" Amy)


And some of you may know that I was worried about my exam results, seeing as I failed a unit last year. If I failed again I wouldn't be able to complete my psych degree, so I was pissing myself when I checked the results. Funnily enough, I couldn't get into the website until yesterday. And anyway, praise God, I did okay. I probably won't be doing Honours, but I'm just overjoyed at being able to graduate. Woohoo!!!!

Not yet a bachelor yet, or maybe I have been one all my life? Ambigious words are cool.

And Amy, if I can't motivate myself, how am I going to motivate you?

my friend who did a psych degree at ECU is now in the population statistics group division. She produces monthly newsletter for the division and other stuff which is more interesting than what i do. You're quite right, they do sound boring... but come to the ABS!.. Simon Ow
