    An exclamation mark in the title! How's that for radical.

    I have been sitting the last hour in this room, trying to do some work. On the other side of the room sits Lizzie, also trying to do some work. Our flatmate came into the room about an hour ago and got chased away by Lizzie for talking and distracting her from her work. Guess how much work I've managed to get done in the last hour? That's right - zilch. And any guesses why that would be? Because Lizzie keeps talking about her assignment.

    I guess in future if I want to work it's going to have to be in a separate room. Sigh.

    Rant over. Go about your business.

    I had the same issues here when Kev was unemployed, because of the small space in the flat he'd be sat opposite me, usually watching a film or something, it was much worse when he wore headphones because then you'd just periodically hear certain tones at a half volume! Garh!

    May I recommend the constructive use of earplugs? (Or a knife, but that could result in serious consequences, as well as a mess, which probably isn't worth it just for a little silence).

    Had to google Gaffer tape. Seems it's like duct tape, but different in the material it uses and the stickyness. That's my new thing learnt today.

    I know what you mean by the headphones, 8people. Lizzie has taken to watching Stargate (season 9 now, I think), and once every 40 minutes or so I just head the theme tune echoing the room, and every now and then just loud gun fires.
