    Nah I escaped the freshers week edition although I've been in the 2 episodes since and they're brutal as ever
    That said one of my friends is still known as peanut after the 'shagger morphed her photo to make it look like her head was shaped like a peanut (they did a so and so looks like so and so type thing - one of my other friends was compared to a crack whore....)

    I'm with you Rose 64... we can be old codgers in the corner together don't worry . In fact there's plenty of us more "mature" Oxford TSRers. Oh and yes its scary, but we'll still have the 4th years and medical students to make us feel young
    oh yes, i'll be around forever...

    actually - is that a good thing? :vroam:

    Mostly it's taken in fun but you have got to be prepared to suck it up
    I mean some of it's quite funny in it's way - a mate and i were accused of having sex in the bath during freshers week. It stems from the fact that he was the incredible hulk for fancy dress and i was helping him get the green face paint off... well off his entire upper body basically and the next day we turned up to college matric with him with green ears and me with green hands so we kind got caught out :p:

    On the other hand they have a running joke about how fat I am, and they're really truly BRUTAL about some people - but it's sort of a right of passage

    do you have a welfare reporting system bekaboo? :eek:

    for ours - if there's anything you don't want published you can email the welfare reps & it'll be pulled from the gossip rag.
    which seems fair enough to me* - some things aren't fair game to publicise & poke fun for the people involved.


    *although my entries have all been fairly benign in association with the men in my life :love:

    Hehe if I'd been doing anything then I probably would but there's not a lot I can do about things like

    "Despite buying [Bekaboo] some XXL panties for Xmas te chump has managed only to pull gay cowboy [Bekaboo's best mate]"

    and my "well-earned place" on the college pint chart at 20 - yes that's the top of the entire college

    Technically I could "opt out" but that just mean your name gets scrubbed through in black marker so it's fairly obvious to anyone who has an idea what's going on and it's literally social suicide

    Well if you're keen to be seen in public in your underwear then you all know the rules about losing at pool - there are some extra Oxford rules like being 6-balled with a ginger in the room suffers the same punishment as 7-balling. Also I believe it may be Balliol have a rule that losing to a girl also counts as a 7 ball
