    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!
    Ah, fair enough then!

    I was quite surprised to hear he'd gone to The Bridge as well :yep:

    I've seen lots of people clubbing in black tie. Is it that unusual here? I'd never do it and think it looks retarded, but lots of Oxford people appear to disagree.

    A JYA at my college.

    Apparently, rumour has it that he went to The Bridge in black tie :eek:
    I'm sure he was at Teddy Hall Ball in black tie plus top hat, cane and a sort of cloak-like overcoat of which I do not know the name. I think there were white gloves and white silk scarf, too.

    That definitely sounds like him. If he was short, looked Central/South American and said the phrases "Oh I see..." and started questions with "Is it that...?", that was him :yep:

    Not at all if it's after a ball / subject dinner. I mean it'd be a bit weird on your own, but it seems perfectly normal to me - who wants to change after a dinner to go clubbing?!

    So if that was an echo, does that mean that you're not here? That you're a figment of my imagination? :ninja:

    It was really fun though - we played kayak polo and kayak stuck-in-the-mud tag and kayak bristish bulldog. . My shoes absolutely stunk of rivermud though. I've tried showering them, I've tried shampoo-ing them but they're still smelly, though now a little bubbly.

    Kayak stuck-in-the-mud? :lolwut:

    Sounds like a lot of fun :yep:

    Having smelly shoes is a very good reason to go shoe shopping... :ninja:

    I'm trying to convince my orchestra that they want to dress up as Disney characters in our concert. Doesn't seem to be working so far :no:

    Why are you having so much fun when I'm having to revise for finals?

    Tidying one's room can be therapeutic sometimes :yep: I'm considering tidying my room up. It's mostly OK but my Spice Girls pictures are on the floor, rather than on my cupboards :sadnod:

    Admittedly, my Spice Girl pics may have to give way to revision notes next year. My tute partner and I are talking about making a gigantic timeline and splitting it across both my rooms
