I'm not too mad, because it was a real fire this time. But my room now smells of smoke, and I'm still a bit jittery from the noise of the alarm (they'd wake the dead, which is of course, more or less what they're designed to do).

So, my next question is... how on earth do you manage to set fire to a boiled egg??? The only thing I can think of is that they left it on for so long that the water boiled off, but wouldn't that take an awfully long time?

I should have thought that would take a long time but something was probably knocked onto the stove and caught on fire.

The flat across me had their fire alarm go off, and I'm only the only person left on my floor and all the alarms were going for about 45 minutes before the night porter could switch it off.

Don't get me started on fire alarms. We've had like 13 since the start of term. Beyond a joke now, the firemen just saunter in rather than rush like they did the first couple of times.

We've never had the firemen called out. I think they managed to put this out themselves.

Firemen only come if:
  • two smash-the-glass points are set off
  • one smoke/heat detector and a smash-the glass is set off
  • if a detector goes off, and Security rings them up to tell them it's more serious than burnt toast or frazzled egg.

Hmm, the fire alarm in my halls went off twice today. Once at 3:45am (hurrah!) and then again this afternoon.

Ooo. Fire alarms at UMIST must be worse than ours... at least we have trees to shelter under, and a nice big car park to spread out in

Yeah, we basically stand in the road outside the halls when they go off.

When I was at York the firemen came out once, but they weren't men. They were still sexy though.

Nah not really. Our greenery doesn't rival Ashburne - in that we don't actually have anything other than a car-sized lawn.

I remember it being very green from the accommodation brochure.
