I got my first paper accepted this way! It's so much more civilised to send off the proposal for consideration than have to work up an entire paper, only for it to be rejected, and then be too depressed to do the rewrites and resubmit (I am speaking from recent experience, here!).
Good luck with your proposal: I'm sure it's super!
So much on the housework! So far this week I've cleaned my oven, washed my kitchen floor, hoovered multiple rooms of the house, cleaned the toilet etc etc. The best thing for me is to go to the gym and get on the treadmill or go for a swim. Or have a shower. Anything where my body is busy but my mind isn't means I come back with a better attitude.
Isn't the whole point of these what you self-identify as rather than your racial make-up or what people think you look like? For instance, my mum always ticks white British, but she's technically a Canadian citizen. I think it would be better if they had a write in section for everything, so you can self-identify as w/ever you like. I disagree with Jouri on this one and do think there's some merit in having the data: being colourblind doesn't mean not being racist, just like treating everyone the same (in the world as it is now) =/= equality.
Thanks for clarifying Delta. What Bewildered said! In my dept a lot of the people who got internal funding also got AHRC funding, so the internal fellowships get shifted down to the people next on the list. So they can't tell the people on the reserve list "no" because it's still maybe until the external funding has all been confirmed in August. Can you talk to your dept and at least get them to confirm you're on the reserve list?
What hobbies does she have? What kinds of things do you like to do together? Can you snoop around her house to see what stuff she has? My bf and I don't really do presents for bdays: we'll usually go out for a nice meal, but he's taken me on a rollercoaster for my birthday, once, and a few years ago we went to Ireland to see Radiohead for his. It's the planning that goes into it that makes it really special.
I really like practical presents, but I don't think everyone is the same about that (I got a handheld food mixer for Christmas last year, and eco washing balls before that, so I think maybe I'm abnormal).
