Not in Memorial Court where I live. It's surprising how few people smoke, actually - I can actually breathe in the bar, and not have to wash all my clothes the next day as I would have to at home. I think you get fined if you get caught smoking in your room.

My sister (at Oxford) told me that the few smokers there were fizzled out their habit simply because they were so in the minority!

You're allowed to smoke in my college although you have to pay for dry cleaning of curtains etc. Plus, you're likely to get lynched if you set a fire alarm off in the evening....

Went to an ent last night and didn't come home smelling like I had been rolling in an ash-tray all night. Who'd be stupid enough to smoke?

thats another good reason for wanting 2 get the grades 4 cambridge then cos i'd be less likely to want to smoke so much if i wasnt surrounded by smokers all the time! ive managed 4 weeks now wich is pretty good going i think!

Are you sure? I thought that they didn't mind that, not that I care as I don't smoke anyhow. Smokers are definitely in the minority.

Sometimes on ents nights it is pretty smokey, and you do come back smelling of it, but it's not cigarette smoke so it's a lot nicer.

I've only noticed the smell of pot once or twice. Although I have seen the effects of it more than a few times at ents etc.

Well, my friend did, but he did set fire to his duvet whilst he was smoking. You're definitely not allowed to smoke in rooms.

i looked around in my college rules for smoking policy, and there doesn't seem to be one. Most smokers put a sock over the smoke detector, which seems to work

ah the old damp sock trick (tip put it in sink first, then wring it out so it doesnt drip)
There are some areas in college you arent allowed to smoke - like old court. they get tetchy about smoking in a 600 year old building

I so wish he's doing Clare Comedy this evening, last time was ****in' hilarious (scary was what everyone else called it though).

We're allowed to smoke in our rooms, but the smoke detectors are super-sensitive. If you were to cover it wih a sock or something they could tell in the lodge that the air flow had been restricted and a maintenance man would appear at the door asking to fix your smoke alarm. So the trick is just to lean out of the window. Loads of people seem to smoke here, but I think we're quite a 'bohemian' college so that might explain it.

I don't know, but ****ing Hedley wasn't too impressed by the whole incident. He's on sabbatical now, woohoo!

Sadly no Ray the porter at Clare comedy tonight, but was still v funny. My friends and I all tried to look small when they asked if there were any medics in the audience, and we got away with it despite the bunch of NatScis all pointing at us!

The headliner was good, I love shouting angry comics, rich eyre's and benny K's sets were also good. The rest were alright, except the first guy who had his moments but seemed to go on about ten minutes too long.
It's not so bad being picked on, a few comedies ago I was set upon by matt k when I sat too near the front. What he was saying about me was so funny I folded up in two laughing and didn't emerge for about fifteen minutes, last year there were a couple of hecklers, they got ripped to shreds it was hilarious.
The headliner did bits that he could so have copied out of Ray's act, but no where near as severe. I really want to see Ray do it again, I'm not sure if I'll ever see a room full of people looking so scared with me in uncontrollable fits of laughter again. It was genius.
