Richard just mocked us for reading 'heat' magazine. 'How can you spend so long reading that rubbish?'.

I didn't come up with a retort. But I wanted to.

Why does he have to be so much of an 'intellectual snob'? Yes, I read trashy magazines sometimes but no way am I less intelligent than him! I have an awareness of popular culture - so bloody what?!

And ultimately at least I can fucking interact with people!!

Addition: Our power just ran out. Back now obviously. Just told Richard off for something else. Yet feel bad. I hate telling people off aargh.

Er, hello? Heat is essential weekely reading! It's actually quite humorous and tongue in cheek, which he would know if he bothered to OPEN HIS MIND.

I don't like the sound of him, Emily :|

Heat's great!

I always pretend that I'm reading it because I'm being ironic, or 'just because it was lying there', but I do like it.

I can't believe that people would get more enjoyment from reading some intellectual magazine about, I dunno, clever things.

Sorry, but you must be a fucking moron to fail to see how people like you mean we have no hope. Burn your shitty rags and change the world for the better, you cunt.

Nice to see that you have the confidence to say who you are. YOU BIG COWARD!

What have you done to change the world for the better, then?

Some people just take themselves far too seriously don't they?

I don't think most medics are like Richard - don't give us a bad rep on account of him!

In our third year Em and I were posted to Chelmsford, and there was a finalist there called Abigail - brilliant at her studies and ultra-keen on the wards - who was OBSESSED with Heat and Now and everything in that ilk. She'd buy armloads of magazines to stockpile in the little 'common room' we had there, and discuss articles in between revising for finals.

So basically what I'm saying is, Heat helps people become doctors.
