    Current music:Aqualung - Strange and beautiful

    Oh dear. Playing the game on The Apprentice website has reawakened my dormant competitive spirit. Talking of competition, I was helping out at a primary school sports day today. When I had my sports days a few years back there was an individual winner for each event. No more, or so it would seem. Now the little children are put into teams in competition with the other teams. I find this objectionable, not least because it isn't instilling a competitive spirit in young children. The sooner they realise competition is a part of life the better off they'll be. When you're thrown out into the real world you've got to use your own smarts to compete against everyone else, you're not part of a team. You've got to stand on your own and prosper. I am quite freakishly competitve myself; I'm always trying to be the best I can be and better what I've done before. And it works for me; last year was without doubt my most successful year at school academically and I'm quite proud of the marks and grades I got.
    Gah this game is frustrating me now. I've managed to get to the third and final level but the office minions keep sapping my life from me. Damn them.
