you're supposed to pick your mother and be picked by your father. Basically when you meet a third year you like just ask 'fancy being my parent'. I'd advise doing this quickly before that person gets other kids and has no more room for others. Most people will go for 4 kids max... too many costumes/raisin receipts to make otherwise
That pub I suggested (which was awesome by the way... even the shinty lads agree!) is closed for renovation. Probably best at the mo is the criterion (the old laffertys) even though the numerous tv screens with football are a little distracting. The Vic is good for loud music, the central is better if you like something quieter where you can actually hear each other chat, the union is good for cheap drinks and has plenty of pools tables, dance machines, racing machines, shooting machines (paintball practise?) heh.
i was not being serious about the wool mill shop, just before you think i'm odder than i actually am. it was an idea to pay hommage to the tweed idea without wearing it!
anyone who wants to be my academic family feel free! just remind me/ pointyourself out when/if i get there!
which one of you is Hannah? ICECRADLE? i always thought you were a dude, with the avatar edward and all.
yes I'm Hannah. The avatar is Edward Scissorhands played by Johnny Depp... sorry, I suppose it's a little misleading.. I'll change it.
better? Now it's me.
Edinburgh Wool Mill! Haha, funny thing that.. last time I was at St. Andrews, I bought my mom a cashmere tartan shawl (or something like that).
I've got my academic father- he's a cool guy. He's in his 4th year when I get there, though, which apparently isn't that great. But what do academic parents really do, other than get you $#!&faced and dress you up in funny costumes?
Actually? Nothing? So they're only of any use during freshers week?
Sorry about the double post! My computers playing up ^-^
Yay i'd like a mum. It feels really strange saying that....
well, I'd advise meeting me first. -.O I might be your worst nightmare. The other thing is I whereas I do drink... I don't drink in order to get REALLY drunk. So if you want to get rat-arsed on raisin weekend then I'm not really the person to pick. On the other hand, if you want to have a fun day with a little bit of alcohol and some very stupid party games and other interesting events (mwahaha) then I'm your girl!
Yeah I'm the same too- I drink socially, but I don't like to go overboard.
i'm happy to be adopted! although icecradle and myself do have the same name. but i have just spent the last 6 years of education with my best friend and i named the same so i can deal with my [?] mother [?] being called that.
parrotman your my hero i've been looking all over for an official looking thing about orientation week, didn't look that hard apperently!
Hey Blondemoment! I'm pretty sure we have exams after Christmas. Then we get some time off before Candlemass Semester starts. I think alot of people use that time to travel (one of my friends at St. Andrews went to Spain for it), but many people stay on campus as well. I don't know if we can come back during Christmas vacation, because I think it depends on what residence hall you're in. (I think some of the halls had to clear out during Christmas vacation, but I'm not sure).
