    I can't remember Balliol's stereotype, but I remember thinking it was quite different from St John's. Quite an unlikely pair... makes me wonder how they came to be sister colleges.

    Then again, Balliol is a very impressive college by all accounts, so I'm not complaining.

    Just wondering, what is the significance of sister colleges? Does it actually mean anything?
    Nah, from what I've heard the reps are quite similar especially if you ask someone from Trinity

    I hope they don't mean anything, and I've no idea how they're worked out. We're sisters with Oriel :eek:

    I can't see you as a commie either, Baz

    I think I'd make a fine Soviet Party leader, I have all the credential that are needed; an upbringing disproportion to that of my peers, lack of anger control, and not fazed by the odd bit of corruption.

    Because the Chapel Choir's prep school is definitely an egalitarian social institution

    Yeah, I suppose your head would be somewhat too big for it now

    Oh come on, all little boys are horrible at that age! That lot are no different, just dressed up more. But I will be leaving them alone, have no fear.

    I've been pushed past by legions of them crossing Queen's Road, mainly. Typical 10 year olds, just dressed up. Still horrible behaviour

    Yes, and I was a little pink pixie

    Most of them are fairly horrible, and I'm sure you weren't much different. In fact, you're probably much the same now, just taller and with a less squeaky voice.

    What's wrong with you tonight? I don't act like a 10 years old! And not all of them are horrible, you get the odd bad apple; but generally they are fine chaps, with perfect manners and possessing all the qualities expected by Matron.

    No, you don't. But your manners to ladies haven't 100% improved

    I just don't like 10 year old boys. They annoy me.

    I think they need therapy. Is anyone on UKL a qualified marriage counsellor?
