100 Things Not To Do Before You Die


I have just booked a room-with-a-view (of the nearby bustling motorway) in one of England's many suicidal, peri-metropolitan commuter towns. There, in the dark, dreary and deafeningly silent confines of my loney lodgings, I shall count down the seconds of Friday night until the appointed time of 'the Great Exam'. My only companion through those long, painful hours - 'till at long last the Saturday sun burns up the hazy gloom of an autumnal morning and I make my way to the crumbling District General - will be this ever-present, expanding sense of dread that gnaws at my entrails like a pack of hungry rats. Well, that and a litre bottle of cheap gin.
Wish me luck.

Good luck. I ordered room service the night before my exam and it was delicious. Go on, spoil yourself! May the Fawkes be with you.

You got it. Best of luck! (And you might want to save the gin for afterwards... ;-)

I wished you luck, but didn't post it.
Good news? Bad news?
Hope you're OK and that the gin hasn't got to you.
