    The Sri Lankan cricket team are coming to the Oxford Union. On the one hand, this is quite cool :cool: On the other, this means my dad will randomly invite himself along and be embarrassing, like when the President came this time last year :getmecoat:

    The kind of idiots who take three steps forward every hour, stop in doorways, don't thank you when you hold doors open etc, not to mention the incredibly rude service in WHSmith. Grr....

    Oh good, I shall attempt to stalk you. I know that you're an english student and male and a first year. I may not be successful...
    Well, I didn't notice anyone stalking me. That either means you did well or badly.

    She was probably preparing her basement for your arrival and then forgot the time.

    I can (or rather could, until I turned my music up) from here, so it's not beyond the realms of impossibility.

    Yeah, but it's relatively open ground between here and Magdalen, so there's not much to stop the noise travelling that bit further.

    Hmm... I think there are four TSR users at Jowett, although only two of us actually frequent this forum...

    TLG - your clavinova-thing. What type have you got? It's just that next year I'll have room and time to play, so I'm thinking of getting one. Any suggestions?

    I have a 7 octave Yamaha one (says Yamaha YDP-121) provided by Woosta: http://images.google.co.uk/imgres?im...a%3DN%26um%3D1

    Tiz quite nice, can do dynamics on it, responds to different touches, etc, and you can get headphones for it. Not too heavy either :nah:

    Who was the chap someone posted a video of in here before? He was talking about how he saved someone's life in a hospital, or something like that.

    Apparently, rumour has it that he went to The Bridge in black tie :eek:

    Well if it was on Thursday that was the dress code for their May Day "ball"... I am more shocked that he went to The Bridge at all!
