    ..BTW, you're a mature student, right? How are you finding it all from that point of view?..
    I am, yes. Maybe that's why I was such a curmudgeon about the Fair

    Good week, thanks. Am particularly enjoying the :holmes: activity as I gradually unmask TSR members to reveal their true identity

    My fellow freshers are a great bunch and seem to instinctively know which activities an old fart might want to be involved in (pub) and which ones he may not be so keen on (dressing up as a Rubik's Cube).

    Hope it's everything that you were expecting too, only more so

    Yeah, it's been pretty good for me, thanks. Have you unmasked many TSR people, then?

    No, just a couple at my own college; TSR hasn't really been that popular at Mansfield all along.

    Suit jacket, shirt, tie with normal (ie non-suit) trousers?

    Tried it, couldn't make it work (with shoes as well), but a suit would've done.
    Turns out its battled on the door, best not, got my mini-statement through tonight

    Tragically, after a long summer, it appears that Mondays are about to become once again very significant.

    Conversely, at least the weekends might be a bit special again!

    My Facebook doesn't seem to like change; it's been giving me the same three notifications since yesterday and refuses to acknowledge my new besubfusced profile picture. It's grudgingly allowed my status in Latin though ("Daniel scit in Matriculam Universitatis hodie relatum esse, et ad observandum omnia Statuta Universitatis Oxoniensis, quantum ad se spectent, teneri."). :awesome:

    Yes it was. After matriculation the Trinitarians went for a pub lunch and then spent the day lazing on the back lawns, listening to music and drinking.... a beautiful respite..... (The weather was pleasant too!)

    Nice, we went down to christ church meadow and started drinking on the lawn there. Then when we were quite drunk we ended up going into christ church and dicking around

    Been doing that excessively over the 2 weeks. I have an absolute disdain for that place ever since I was asked to show my bod card to enter (uncannily similar to a bouncer at a club)

    Not all of us ... I did my laundry :ninja:

    (and it was so complicated I'm glad I scheduled the whole afternoon for it)
    I've just realised I know who you are!
    I've got to do some washing now... why is it SO expensive? I'm totally giving up on the idea of doing a seperate whites wash, it'll bankrupt me.
