It's Been a Hard Day's Night

Saturday, May 09, 2009

We are doing this debate this weekend. The first round was fun. It was on this geo-pol motion and THANKFULLY we ended up debating a motion which I'd done a political science project on so I knew what it was about reasonably well. But we just couldn't get our point across well enough. Fair. We were up against Purple and team and they're just awesome awesome. We lost. That was okay because the feedback made sense and we knew we'd lost before they gave their decision. HOWEVER, our second round was atrocious. The judging, that is. We got a single chair and we were all thinking we'd win by clear (margin). BUT. Not, apparently. Well, it's happened before, horrid judging that is, but this was just taking it to a whole new level. Any way, I love debating and shouldn't get SO ticked off by arbit bad decisions (even though they seem to happen with alarming regularity). Later had conversations with multiple people and felt better because said judge is said to spaz out on a regular basis (but he's supposed to be a decent judge because he has pretty rounds where he gives lucid feedback quite often. But I guess we all have our crazy-bad days). Heh. Horrid that we should be at the receiving end in this tournament, but well, sigh, we're not the only ones! Hopefully we'll improve and become so kickass that we can convince even the slowest of judges even on their worst day :)

Then ended up realising that should IOM much, much more. Have totally stopped visiting HappyLand.

Among other updates, I'm extremely sleepy right now so I should get done with work and then go get some sleep, expecially since we need to wake up at 8 tomorrow morning to debate some more. Not really an "update" but well. Whatever.

Also, I love The Beatles and this album especially. Sigh.

When I'm home everything seems to be right
When I'm home feeling you holding me tight, tight

However, my favourite-est* song on the album is And I Love Her

And I Love Her - The Beatles

I give her all my love
That's all I do
And if you saw my love
You'd love her too
I love her

She gives me everything
And tenderly
The kiss my lover brings
She brings to me
And I love her

A love like ours
Could never die
As long as I
Have you near me

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark is the sky
I know this love of mine
Will never die
And I love her

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark is the sky
I know this love of mine
Will never die
And I love her

Wouldn't you just die if someone sang this for you?

*Look, I just CANNOT decide between the title song, I Should Have Known Better, Happy Just to Dance With You and Can't Buy Me Love. They're all my favs. I love this album.

Hey aren't you the perfect person to ask this question: do debates get emotional? (to the point where you think your brain is going to have microscopic explosions?). Or knowing that the opposition are past/future/present friends/colleagues/clients(?) keeps the debates under control... ?

hey! i'm so kicked that i'm being considered an authority on debating SOMEWHERE. haha. (go blog!)

you mostly debate with your friends/people you know/people you eventually know because you've debated with or against them. plus the judges are also a part of this pool. so there's no getting emotional etc. it's rather extremely technical. and awesome fun :D
but yea your brain could be about to explode for other reasons... :D

oh I am sorry... didn't mean to kick you... let alone twice ;)

your position of authority stems from the fact that I am unable to name one friend outside my profession!
