That Time Of Year Again...

This is a blast from my mis-spent youth: I submit it for any youngsters out there who are getting their exam results today (AS and A2 Levels) or next week (GCSEs). They're probably too un-PC for today's television tastes (I think the latest ads for BT show a "typical" modern family - she has children from a previous relationship, he has a wandering eye...) but back in the mists of time, whenever anyone mentioned exams there was sure to be a a chorus of "an 'ology'? You got an 'ology,' you're a scientist..."

I have the equivalent of nine 'A' levels, 21 'O' levels [from the 80's when they were still worth the paper they were written on]and two thirds of two degrees along with an IQ of 186 and an EQ off the scale - hasn't done me a blind bit of good - still a shelf-stacker in ASDA ; employers don't really want to know.

I'm sorry, forgive my churlishness, congratulations and good luck for the future to everyone...
I've been a bit of a bad boy - got carried away on damian thompson's blog and just kept writing - I think everyone's going to start hating me for what I said...If you'd care to read it make sure you are seated and have a large brandy to hand...
I apologise beforehand [expect to find a few horses heads in my bed tonight]

Classic commercial! How the heck do you FAIL art?! You've got to do some creative trying for that one...like cut class every day and smoke behind the locker room.

(Owl, to quote a US president I can't stand, "I feel your pain." Seriously, though see if you can finiah up at least one of those degrees. It will make a world of difference in your job prospects.)

Karen - I think you'll find it was "On the side of the angels" who made the comments rather than "Owl" !
